Fans have been longing for an all-out sports bike model of the popular Pulsar. Although Bajaj did release the extremely capable 200NS, the fans were left a little disappointed. But now Bajaj has finally unveiled a full fairing version of the Pulsar. Called the SS 400, Bajaj’s latest Pulsar is a definite showstopper. The company has taken its time with the new Super Sport but have done it right. The 400 SS is a well styled powerful machine. Previous reports and spy shots hinted that the new bike would be called the Pulsar 375 and although the engine specs proved to be right, Bajaj has gone for the SS400 moniker. The new Bajaj 400 family of bikes will prove to be the crown jewel of the company as well as for the Indian bike maker community.
The Bajaj Super Sport 400 uses a 375cc liquid cooled engine that is mated to a six speed gearbox. The bike also comes with ABS for added protection.
A radical departure from the current gen family of Pulsars, the SS400 looks nothing like a Pulsar. The first Pulsar ever to get full fairing, the SS400 is Bajaj’s first step into this segment. The overall style is well suited for the bike. The sharp lines distinctly flow from the dual projector headlamps and merge with the body of the bike. The projector headlamps add a touch of class to the bike.
In keeping with tradition, the SS400 also comes with split tail lights. But the ones found on the SS400 come with a twist. Retaining most of the original design, Bajaj has gone for a set of floating LEDs for the tail lamps.
The handle bars have been slightly modified to add a bit more girth. The instrument cluster is all digital apart from the RPM meter. The bike also comes with a mono suspension system that can be adjusted for perfect ride quality.
All in all, the Bajaj SS400 is another splendid bike that will be a definite hit when launched. Since this bike is still in the concept stage no prices have been announced.
