If you have been regular on Motoroids, you will know that we have been talking a lot about the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 375 Indian performance bike.
The new Bajaj Pulsar 375 is based on the KTM Duke 390 that was unveiled at the EICMA motor show last year and will be launched in Indian market this year. We have always known that 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 for at least next few years.
Seen here are a couple of pics that have a great chance of being that of the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 375.
It seems like the 375 will become the first fully faired Bajaj bike and will sport twin pod projector headlights. While the bike looks very unlike the 200NS, we have quite a few reasons to believe that the bike in the pics is indeed the Pulsar 375.
As can be made out from careful observation of pics, the bike seems to sport the same instrument cluster that is found on the Pulsar 200NS. Another similar design detail is the positioning of the pilot lamps which have been placed in a typical Pulsar fashion. This isn’t all as the paint on the bike here seems to be of the same shade as that on the new generation 200cc Pulsar.
Other similar details include the typical Pulsar aircraft type fuel lid, a similar cowl around the instrument panel and tank design that has a hint of that of the 200NS.
Yet another Bajaj connection is the indicator set, which seems to have been taken from the KTM Duke parts bin.
Powering the Pulsar 375 will be a re-worked version of the 375cc, single cylinder motor that powers the Duke 390 (what else?).
The Bajaj Pulsar 375’s motor will feature a triple spark plug layout that is seen on the 200NS and the 375’s engine is being expected to have a power output of 38-42HP.
The new bike will retain the Pulsar’s value-for-money proposition and is expected to come with a price tag of about INR 2 lakhs.
