Much has been said about the Pune-based two-wheeler maker Bajaj's upcoming cruiser the Pulsar CS400. The general consensus is that the powerful cruiser from the maker of the popular Pulsar models will reach Indian showrooms finally this year, with the launch expected to happen in August.

While discussions about the launch of the new Pulsar CS400 and the variants of the bike continues among fans, lending credence to the talk is a new set of images of the much-awaited Pulsar CS400 that has hit the web, showing what is believed to be the base variant of the model.

Caught on camera by Shifting Gears, the prototype of the Pulsar CS400 is seen without ABS rings, suggesting that the model could be launched in two variants — with ABS and without. The Pulsar CS400 is getting ready to enter the Indian market two years after the concept was shown at the Auto Expo 2014.

The production specifications of the Pulsar CS400 look identical to its concept, though some changes are expected, like newly-designed split seats, disc brakes for both wheels and alloy wheels with a new look, and a twin instrument console — one on the handlebar as seen in other bikes and the other on the fuel tank.

The Pulsar CS400 will get power from a 375cc liquid-cooled, 4-valve triple-spark engine, which is likely to churn out 40hp of peak power and around 30Nm of torque. Expected to be priced in the range of Rs. 1.7 lakh to Rs. 1.85 lakh (ex-showroom), the new Pulsar is expected to come mated to six-speed transmission with fuel injection.
