2014 is a busy year for the country's popular two wheeler maker Bajaj. While the two wheeler enthusiasts in the country are waiting to see a series of launches from Bajaj, new spy shots of Bajaj's next generation Pulsar have hit the web, giving us an insight into the engine specifications of the bike.

The latest prototype of the next generation Bajaj Pulsar was snapped by the folks at Shifting Gears who spotted the bike on test near the company's Chakan plant.

The new generation Pulsar, which borrows the design cues from Pulsar 200 NS is likely to be powered by 160cc, single-cylinder-air-cooled, triple-spark petrol engine. We do not know yet the power output of the 160cc engine of the bike, however, reports indicate that the power would be better.

As far as the features are concerned, the next generation Pulsar is likely to get features like LED tail lamp, digital + analogue tachometer, split seats and new fuel filler cap.

The tyre size of the bike is likely to be the same that of current generation 100/90/17 MRF Zapper and expect the new Pulsar to get a telescopic fork suspension at the front and monoshock suspension at the rear.

The launch of the next generation Pulsar is yet to be revealed, however, we expect it to reach the Indian market in 2015.

Meanwhile, Bajaj's much anticipated Pulsar 200SS is likely to make its way to the sub-continent market during this festive season. Bajaj Pulsar 200SS, the fully faired version of Pulsar 200NS is likely to get a retuned version of four-stroke, SOHC, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine, which can churn out 23.65 bhp of power and 18.3 Nm of torque.

Other speculated features include digital fuel injection system, optional ABS, monoshock suspension at the rear, telescopic forks at the front and projector headlamps.
