The upcoming Bajaj Pulsar CS 400 has been spotted yet again, this time by Indian Autos Blog reader Mr. Afroz Jaffri. This time however, the upcoming motorcycle has been pictured up close, letting us closer into the some of the details.
The long-faced headlamps will feature LED power, and give the CS 400 its own distinct identity.
The fully digital, spilt instrument cluster has one part of it conventionally mounted on the handlebars, while the other part is positioned on top of the fuel tank.
The production version of the CS 400 will roll out with beefy, yet conventional telescopic front forks, unlike the concept’s USD front forks; dual-channel ABS to be offered as an option.
The CS 400 will carry on the Pulsar legacy of having twin, split tail lamps.
First displayed at the 2014 Auto Expo, the Bajaj Pulsar CS 400 will be launched in the third quarter of this year (2016); in the July-September period. Upon launch, the Pulsar CS 400 will become Bajaj’s fastest and mist powerful motorcycle till date. Bajaj’s power cruiser is expected to be powered by an engine that will be closely related to KTM’s 373.2 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. However, the Pulsar CS 400 would employ Bajaj’s patented triple-spark technology. Power and torque will be detuned significantly from the Duke 390, with more focus on tractable performance and good drivability, rather than outright poke. Power output is expected to be below the 40 bhp mark, down from the KTM’s 43 bhp output. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed transmission, with different gear ratios from the KTM Duke/RC 390.
