After months of speculation and spy-shots of Pulsar test-mules on the internet, Bajaj has finally unveiled the more powerful iteration of the Pulsar series. Christened the CS400 & SS400, both the bikes share their mechanicals with the KTM Duke 390. The bikes however are still in concept stage and have some time before they head for production.
The naked styling of the CS 400 concept continues on the design of the 200 NS with the sculpted fuel tank.
As the rumours suggested, Bajaj indeed had a full-flaired version of the Pulsar in works. The SS400 is a full-flaired machine, whereas the CS400 is a naked-street fighter and looks similar to the 200NS.
Heart of the matter, the 373cc powerplant of the Bajaj’s new line of bikes, CS and SS 400.
The design on both bikes definitely has some influence from Ducati to it, which honestly, is not a bad thing. While there’s not much information available about the engines yet, we’ve been told both the bikes will be powered by a 373cc single-cylinder unit.
The Pulsar 400SS is a looker from all angles
Both the samples of CS400 & SS400 on display had a fully-digital instrument cluster and ABS (Anti-lock braking system) stickering on them. It’s good to see Bajaj finally offering safety kit on its products, something everyone complained about during the launch of the 200NS. It’s hard to tell when these bikes will make it to the market, but we assume it’ll be sometime after the current financial year ends.
The first Pulsar to get a full fairing, Bajaj has done a good job with it, with the dual projector head lamps.
