Bajaj Pulsar 375cc Launch

We reported in detail when Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, MD, Bajaj Auto Ltd., announced that his company will launch an all new Pulsar in 2013.

As everyone has been saying, the next Bajaj launch under the Pulsar streamer will be that of the much publicized Bajaj Pulsar 375cc performance bike.

It may be noted that Bajaj launched the Pulsar 200NS last year and the new gen Pulsar came soon after the very tasty KTM 200 Duke was introduced to the rapidly developing Indian bike market. It is no secret that the KTM link has been very advantageous to Bajaj in the development of the 200NS and history is all set to repeat itself with the advent of the Indian innings of the KTM 390 Duke.

As would have been guessed by now, the new Bajaj Pulsar 375 will be based on the new KTM Duke 390.

The KTM Duke 390, which is a 375cc motorcycle, was unveiled at the EICMA motor show last year and will be launched in Indian market by May 2013.

Talking of the Bajaj Pulsar 375cc variant, the big daddy of all Pulsars will share design cues with the 200NS and will become the flagship product of BAL.

Peopelling the Pulsar 375 will be the re-worked version of the 375cc, single cylinder motor that powers the Duke 390. The Pulsar 375’s motor will feature a triple spark plug layout that debuted on the 200NS. H

The Pulsar 375’s motor will, however, use fuel injection instead of a carburettor setup seen on the 200NS.

The new Pulsar 375 is expected to have a power figure in the region of 38-42HP and the bike should have a genuine 160kmph top whack.

The new bike will retain the Pulsar’s value-for-money proposition and it is being said that the Pulsar 375 will come with a price tag of about INR 2 lakhs.

At this price, the new Pulsar would pose a serious threat to the CBR250 and to the more expensive Hyosung GT250R.
