The Bajaj Kratos VS400 will borrow its engine from the KTM Duke 390.

The Bajaj Kratos VS400, as mentioned by Mr. Rajiv Bajaj in a past interview, will have its market launch next month. It will be identical to the Bajaj Puslar CS400 concept from the Auto Expo 2014, save for a different suspension (the Kratos VS400 will sport conventional telescopic forks whereas the concept featured upside-down forks), and a redesigned seat.

The Bajaj Kratos VS400 will be powered by the KTM Duke 390’s engine. The 373.27 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, with Bajaj’s DTS-i technology will develop around 34.50 hp and will come mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The Bajaj Kratos VS400 is expected to cost in the whereabouts of INR 1.6-1.7 lakhs, ex-Showroom.
