A fresh spy shot of Bajaj's upcoming Pulsar, the Pulsar CS400 (Cruiser Sport), has hit the web just days after the launch of the model was confirmed. The Pulsar CS400 is expected to hit the Indian roads in the third quarter this year.

The new spy shot shared by Rushlane shows the Pulsar CS400 in its completely camouflaged avatar, thus not revealing anything new. However, from what we understand, the Pulsar CS400 sticks to the design and style of its concept, which was shown at the Auto Expo 2014 along with Pulsar SS400 (Super Sport). The production version of the Pulsar CS400 seems to have got minor updates and features new headlights, telescopic forks and upside down suspension. Other features expected include disc brakes for both the front and the rear and is likely to feature LED headlamps, digital instrument panel and LED taillight.

The new Bajaj Pulsar CS400 is expected to get twin instrument console — one on the handlebar as seen in other bikes and the other on the fuel tank and wide tyres. Built on the same platform as that of the KTM 390 Duke, the Pulsar CS400 is the Pune-based two-wheeler maker's first offering in its new power cruiser segment.

It is expected to draw power from a 375cc liquid-cooled, 4-valve triple-spark engine and come mated to six-speed transmission with fuel injection and is also likely to offer ABS. It is not clear whether the ABS will come as standard or as optional. In India, the Pulsar CS400 is likely to be priced in the range of Rs. 1.7 lakh to Rs. 1.85 lakh (ex-showroom).
