It was only a few days ago that the Bajaj Pulsar 200 SS was caught testing and now the pictures of its elder sibling, the Bajaj Pulsar 375 have leaked on to the interweb. In the past few days, there were a few renderings and spyshots of Bajaj Pulsar 375 on the internet. With the latest round of low resolution images, we at least have a clear idea of how the bike will look like.
Although the source of the bike is yet to be confirmed, the shots give a lot of information about what you may see in the real product. The bike is going to share a lot of its specifications with senior members from the family, i.e., Duke 390/RC390. So, you may see the same 373.2cc single-cylinder engine with little less power of about 40bhp.
You will find plenty of new things to cherish on the design side. The underbelly exhaust has made way for a short stubby unit. Panel design has been completely re-worked. You will see more biking comfort with new upswept screen and raised clip-on handlebars. The bike gets LED based turn blinkers, just the ones you see in Duke. For add on safety, you will see new steel-braided brake hoses and ABS braking.
The photographs further depict similar sized (and rated) tyres and suspension system as you see in the 200NS. Overall, at first glance the bike looks a bit like the Daytona 675. We think it looks stylish, sporty, exciting and adventurous. To differentiate the bike from RC390, Pulsar 375 will have slightly different, locally-manufactured brakes and tyres, and the suspension will be suited to take care of your daily travel needs.
The Pulsar 375 will focus on daily travelers as well as the ones who take out their bikes for much more spirited riding. The new Bajaj Pulsar 375 bike should be launched in the first quarter of 2014 and we may catch its glimpse at the upcoming Auto Expo in Delhi. Bajaj has come a long way from the first ever Pulsar to hit Indian roads and this one surely looks like something that is ready to take on global motorcycle players.
