It appears like motor enthusiasts may have to wait a little longer before they swing their leg over the new power cruiser the Pulsar VS400 from the house of Bajaj. While it was previously rumoured that the Pulsar VS400 would come to the Indian market in September, the emerging reports indicate that the launch could happen only in November, shortly after the festive season.

Bajaj Pulsar VS400, what is previously known as the Pulsar CS400, has made biking aficionados in India wait for a long time since its first appearance at the Auto Expo 2014. The company has been putting it through rigorous tests in different terrains in the country since then, and the Pulsar VS400 was also caught on camera countless times.

From what we have seen so far, the Pulsar VS400 in its production-spec stays very close to its concept -- the Pulsar CS400. Although Bajaj tweaked some if its elements, bike watchers are of the opinion that the Pulsar VS400 is in its finest form. However, we will have to wait at least till November to talk about the performance of the new Bajaj offering.

Bajaj Pulsar VS400 gets twin instrument console — one on the handlebar as seen in other bikes and the other on the fuel tank -- and wide tyres. It will get an all-black exhaust, newly-designed split seats, disc brakes for both wheels and alloy wheels with a new look in its production guise.

It is being said that the Pulsar VS400 will come in two variants in India. Both the variants will be powered by a 373.27cc liquid-cooled, 4-valve triple-spark, fuel-injected mill mated to six-speed transmission. While the base variant would develop 34bhp of power, the high-end version would be tuned to churn out 43bhp and 35Nm of torque. The top-end spec of the Pulsar VS400 could get ABS and slipper clutch as standard.
