The Bajaj D400 has been launched at Rs. 1.36 lakh. Our guess is that even the fully-faired Bajaj Pulsar RS400 launch isn’t too far in the offing. All this means that the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 launch will take place some months after that of the CS400. Read on for launch details of the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 400cc bikes.
