The highly anticipated Bajaj Kratos VS400, previously referred to as Bajaj Pulsar CS400, is days away from its launch. Citing sources from the company’s Mumbai dealerships, a report from India.com says that the Bajaj Kratos VS400 is now being dispatched to dealerships nationwide and will be launched this month.
The Bajaj Kratos VS400 will be the production version of the Bajaj Pulsar CS400 concept showcased at Auto Expo 2014. Leaked images and spy media have kept us in the loop through the production version’s development, only to confirm that not much in terms of design & styling has been changed.
The Bajaj Kratos VS400 will be powered by the KTM Duke 390‘s 373.27 cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine, and will produce 34.50 hp. It will reportedly get the KTM slipper-clutch and a 6-speed transmission.
Unlike the Bajaj CS400 concept which features upside-down forks, the Bajaj Kratos VS400 will be fitted with telescopic forks. The seats too have been changed for the production version. Disc brakes (front and rear) governed by a dual-channel ABS will provide the stopping power.
Digital instrument cluster, daytime running lights, LED tail lights and self-cancelling turn signals are a few key features of the Kratos VS400.
The Kratos VS400 is expected to have a retail pricing of INR 1.6-1.7 lakh.
