Bajaj Pulsar is one of the most popular motorcycle range present in India. In last one decade Bajaj has established itself very strongly in the Indian two wheeler space, and the Pulsar range deserves a lot of credit for that. When the news about Bajaj Pulsar VS400 (CS400) broke out for the first time, the Indian automotive space literally went gaga about it.
Now the most powerful Pulsar ever is gearing up for its launch. And before that the motorcycle has been spied in Ladakh doing a TVC shoot. The motorcycle has been spotted without any camouflage. With the location of the TVC shoot, it is clear, that the flagship Pulsar will target touring enthusiasts.
The Bajaj Pulsar VS400 has taken some design cue from its smaller rival 200NS. It looks very muscular and aggressive. The headlamp comes as a cluster of 7 LED units and a halogen lamp as well. The fuel tank looks beefy, while the instrument cluster comes fully digital, delivering a premium vibe. Interestingly, apart from the large digital screen on the headlamp cowl, the fuel tank also gets a second LCD screen showing various data.
The tail section of the motorcycle is not very stretched and looks like it has ended abruptly. The taillight gets LED units. Overall the motorcycle sports a semi low hung stance, which offers convenient riding position. It also features a flat handle bar giving more control to the rider and a stepped up saddle seat as well.
Power comes from a 373.2 cc single cylinder liquid cooled fuel injected engine shared with the KTM Duke 390. The engine is mated to a six-speed transmission and churns out 35 PS of peak power at 8,000 rpm and 33 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm. It offers 30 kmpl of fuel economy. The top speed is expected to come as 175 kmph.
On the suspension front the Bajaj Pulsar VS400 comes equipped with telescopic fork at front and gas charged mono shock absorber at rear. Both the front and rear wheels sport disc brakes combined with dual channel ABS doing the braking duty. The motorcycle runs on alloy wheels wrapped with tubeless tyres. Expect the price of VS400 to be start from Rs. 1.5 lakhs (ex showroom). Once launched, the flagship Pulsar will compete against KTM Duke 390, Mahindra Mojo, Royal Enfield Himalayan etc.
