The Bajaj Pulsar RS400 is expected to launch in 2017 at an estimated price of Rs 1.75 lakh – Rs 2 lakh (ex-showroom).
The Bajaj Pulsar RS400 will share its powertrain with the KTM RC390 - i.e. 375cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled with fuel-injected technology.
Bajaj Auto that launched three new Pulsar models (RS200, AS200 and AS150) previous year, is now contemplating the launch of two 400cc bikes under the Pulsar nameplate – CS400 and RS400 (SS400). For people not in the know, the company had showcased concepts of both the bikes at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. While the CS400 (Cruise Sport) will be the company’s new flagship product, the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 will become the most powerful Pulsar upon its launch. The former will come towards the end of this year, and the latter one is expected to be rolled out by next year.
