Homegrown two-wheeler maker, Bajaj Auto is reportedly planning to launch two new motorcycles in January 2018. According to media reports, the company will launch a refreshed version of the Bajaj Avenger Street 150 and the production version of the long-awaited Pulsar RS400. The report further suggests that the motorcycle could be called Bajaj RS 400. It is likely to be based on the fully-faired Pulsar SS 400 concept, which was unveiled at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. The new motorcycle is likely to share mechanics and other components with the Dominar 400.
Since Bajaj is not participating in the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo, it would be wise to unveil or launch an all-new product before this biennial event. Set to be Bajaj’s flagship motorcycle, the new Bajaj RS 400 will be the fastest motorcycle from the homegrown automaker. Read – Bajaj Dominar 400 All Details
