The motor lovers in India have already seen quite a number of spy shots of the upcoming Pulsar CS400 from Bajaj, the maker of Pulsar motorcycles. Now, ahead of its possible launch in the country in the coming months, the Pulsar CS400 has made yet another appearance online, this time revealing more details about the exterior of the upcoming model.
Two test mules of the Pulsar CS400 have been snapped by Motoroids while undergoing its test runs in the country. From the images, although the prototypes of the upcoming new Pulsar still carry the camouflage, it does reveal features like aluminium tip of the black exhaust and saree guard. The latest images also give a closer look at the rear of the model.
Although the styling of the Pulsar CS400 looks the same as its concept, which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2014, the production version seems to have got minor tweaks like new headlamp cluster and telescopic forks. It may be recalled that the Pulsar CS400 concept was showcased with upside down suspension. Previous spy shots of the model have confirmed the presence of ABS in the Pulsar CS400. However, it remains to be seen whether it will come as stranded or optional.
The Pulsar CS400, probably Bajaj's first offering in its new power cruiser segment, has been built on the same platform as that of the KTM 390 Duke and 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.
It is expected to have disc brakes for both the front and the rear and is likely to feature LED headlamps, digital instrument panel and LED taillight. Other features expected include twin instrument console — one on the handlebar as seen in other bikes and the other on the fuel tank and wide tyres. 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).
Meanwhile, a report of Autocarprofessional claims that Bajaj is likely to launch its new performance-oriented motorcycle during Diwali, probably towards the end of September or in early October.
