2013 promises to be a big year for the Indian premium motorcycle space. A slew of high performance motorcycles are being prepped up to be launched later this year. Today, we have spyshots of two such motorcycles, both of which will serve as flagship models for their respective makers. On Saturday, the very first images, purported to be that of the 2014 Bajaj Pulsar 375 emerged onto the interweb. Today, we have another image of the Pulsar 375 surfacing on PowerDrift, the Facebook page which also carried the earlier spyshots.
The 2014 Bajaj Pulsar 375, as seen in the purported spyshot, gets a full fairing and twin pod projector headlamps. Through our other report, we’ve highlighted why these spyshots could indeed be that of the 2014 Pulsar. You may click here to read our earlier report. The latest spyshot shows off the white glow of the projector headlamp, the front alloy wheel and the front disc brake. The spyshot also indicates that the Pulsar 375 could retain the telescopic front forks that seem similar to the Pulsar 200 NS.
By the looks of it, it seems that Bajaj Auto is targeting a very competitive price tag, and the telescopic front forks seem to indicate that even as Bajaj Auto could’ve easily borrowed the USD front forks from the KTM Duke 200/390. Coming to the other motorcycle sighting, the Mahindra Mojo 300 makes its first ever appearance on Indian roads. While the motorcycle is yet to be spotted doing the testing in India, the spyshot indicating the Mojo 300 being transported on a flat bed pick up represents the first ever image of this motorcycle seen outdoors. Our friends at Motoroids report that the Mojo 300 being transported thus was heading to the Mahindra TwoWheelers R&D Center at Chinchwad, off Pune.
The Mojo 300 is expected to be launched in India later this year. As its name suggests, the motorcycle will be powered by a 292cc four stroke engine. The single cylinder engine is liquid cooled and operates on a 4 valve-DOHC layout. This engine is expected to deliver about 25 Bhp of peak power. The engine is mated to a six speed manual gearbox. The Mojo 300 was first showcased in late 2010, and was subsequently exhibited at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo. The motorcycle features upside down front forks and a monoshock rear.
