The upcoming Bajaj Pulsar CS400 has been spied yet again, courtesy RushLane. The Bajaj Pulsar CS400 is currently in its final phase of testing prior to commercial launch in India. The flagship Pulsar model has been confirmed by Bajaj Auto President (Business Development & Assurance) S Ravikumar to be launched in Q3 2016 (July-September 2016), and is expected to be priced around INR 1.8 lakhs (ex-showroom).
The Bajaj Pulsar CS400 was unveiled as a concept motorcycle at Auto Expo 2014 and hasn't changed much in terms of design in production form, spy media suggest. The new naked motorcycle will be the most powerful Pulsar put on sale. It's said to be based on the Bajaj Pulsar RS200’s platform.
The Bajaj Pulsar CS400 is expected to be powered by a modified version of the KTM Duke 390's 373.2 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that produces 32 kW (44 hp) and 35 Nm of torque in the latter's current model. As seen in the spyshot, the engine will feature Bajaj Auto's DTS-i technology. There's no speak of ride-by-wire though.
The engine will be mated to a 6-speed transmission. Providing stopping power, will be single front and rear disc brakes with dual-channel ABS. The production version will have conventional front suspension in place of the concept version’s upside-down unit, but retain the all-digital instrument panel and auxiliary digital display of the concept version.
