The highly anticipated Bajaj Pulsar CS400 was once again caught on camera by the folks at ThrottleTwisters. The test mule, accompanied by a Kawasaki Versys 650, was doing test runs on the twisties of Lonavala, between Pune and Mumbai. This time though, the camouflaged test mule was not racing with other motorcycle.
The red paint job, originally seen on the concept motorcycle at the 2014 Auto Expo, can be seen under the camouflage stickers. Unlike the previously spied test mule, the motorcycle in the latest spy video was equipped with an ABS ring at the rear wheel. As seen on the concept, the production version CS400 will feature a fully digital, spilt instrument cluster.
Check out the video below:
One of our readers updated us with a spy image of the upcoming CS400 in April this year which revealed finer details about this upcoming Pulsar. Previous spy image revealed that the Pulsar CS400, visually, will stay exactly similar to the concept motorcycle showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo. However, the motorcycle will receive a slightly watered down headlamp cluster and a conventional telescopic front suspension.

Our previous interactions with company insiders revealed that the fastest, most powerful Pulsar, the CS400, will be the next big product to roll out of Bajaj’s production plant. Mechanical details of the motorcycle are yet unknown but the CS400’s engine will be closely related to the KTM’s 373.2 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor but is expected to employ the patented triple-spark technology. Performance numbers are likely to be significantly lower than its Austrian pocket-rocket so expect to see approximately 35-38 hp of power.
We hope to see the motorcycle in dealerships towards the end of the year, probably near the festive season. While we wait for an official announcement, let us know your views about the Bajaj Pulsar CS400 through the comments section below.
