It looks like the launch of the highly-anticipated Pulsar (Cruiser Sport) CS400 could be on the horizon as the company has begun testing the model on the Indian roads. A prototype of what is believed to be the Pulsar CS400 has been spied probably for the first time, indicating the arrival of the model.
The motor buffs at TechnWheelz have shared a set of images of the Pulsar CS400, which have been caught on camera while undergoing its test runs. In the images, although the bike was heavily masked, the silhouette and some parts of test mule could be seen matching the concept showed at the Auto Expo 2014. Pulsar CS400, the performance cruiser first appeared at the Auto Expo 2014 and since then the bike lovers of the country have been waiting eagerly for this big machine of Bajaj. Earlier this year, the company hinted that the performance machine would come out soon.
Coming back to the spy shots, while the overall body proportion and the work is similar to the model shown at the Auto show, the test mule seem to have adopted a few changes. The images show twin instrument console â€” one on the handlebar as seen in other bikes and the other on the fuel tank.
Regarding the engine of the model, the spy shots do not reveal much about it; however, from what we know, Pulsar CS400, which is probably Bajaj's first offering in its new power cruiser segment, is built on the same platform as that of the KTM 390 Duke. It is expected to be powered by a 375cc liquid-cooled, 4-valve triple-spark engine and come mated to six-speed transmission with fuel injection.
In India, the bike is likely to be priced in the range of Rs. 1.7 lakh to Rs. 1.85 lakh (ex-showroom).
