Bajaj Pulsar RS400 Launch This Financial Year!


Bajaj Auto Ltd has repeatedly hinted at the fast approaching launch of the biggest Pulsar flagships ever. Bajaj launched the Pulsar RS 200 and the Adventure Sports models this year and recently, Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, MD, Bajaj Auto, has hinted that even the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 launch isn’t very far in the offing. Instead, there are good chances that the much awaited motorcycle would be launched in early 2016, probably towards the end of the current fiscal. Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Auto, has said that the Pulsar 400 will be launched “some point in this financial year”. Of course, the RS 400 will follow the equally promising CS400 model that shared floor-space with the faired flagship at the Auto Expo 2014. Here, in this post, we have put together all the important details on the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 launch.

The RS400 (SS400) will be the most expensive bike from Bajaj. It will be even pricier than the VS 400. The SS400 will get its engine from the KTM RC390. It should come with similar performance levels but slightly higher fuel mileage. The RS400 will play the elder sibling to the RS200, The Bajaj Pulsar RS400 launch will be really important for Bajaj Auto Ltd.

Bajaj Pulsar RS 400 Price in India

Quite obviously, the Pulsar RS 400 will be significantly cheaper than the KTM RC390. However, it will be more expensive than the CS400. Our guess is that in terms of pricing, the 400SS will be positioned just a tad higher than the hot-selling KTM 390 Duke.

Bajaj Pulsar RS400 Design

The Pulsar RS400 looks almost exactly like the RS200. The only little differentiation comes from slightly different sticker-job near the headlamps. The RS400 is based on the SS400 concept we saw at the 2014 Auto Expo. Staying true to the concept, the RS400 will look really sporty. It will boast of a full front fairing that will house twin projector headlamps. Furthermore, the headlamps will be accompanied by LED DRLs. There is a large windscreen upfront which should offer sufficient wind protection. The tank looks neatly sculpted and the usage of decals adds some more excitement. In terms of design, the Pulsar RS400 is world-class! Moving on, it gets a split seat setup. The tailpiece looks sufficiently modern bit isn’t the prettiest of designs. The LED taillamps look bold enough.

Bajaj Puslar RS400 Competition

The Pulsar RS400 will be rivaled by the top-end Honda CBR250R on one end, and the KTM RC390 on the other. Also, while not exactly a rival, the RS400 could even eat into the sales of the Pulsar CS400. The RS400 could even indirectly rival the upcoming BMW G310R.

  3. Hi sir,

    I am planning to change my bike in another max 6 months for which i started doin my research now. I am currently using a pulsar 150. My budget would be 1.8 to 2 lacs max on road price. Could you suggest me few options. Really confused with duke, cbr 250 r, rc 200, thunderbird..etc.. i usually use the bike for daily commuting but also like to take it on long rides during weekends. Kindly suggest some good bikes which fits in my requirement.
    Thanks in advance.

  4. Felicito a Bajaj por todas las nuevas motos que esta introduciendo al mercado, las que por su precio nos permiten comprar una motocicletas de mediana cilindrada y de excelente calidad, lo que no es posible en motos de otras marcas, que bien pueden costar el doble que una Pulsar.

    En noviembre 2014 compre una Pulsar 200 ns, la que he disfrutado mucho y reconozco su calidad. Tengo sin embargo algunas sugerencias que quisiera que Bajaj tomara en cuenta para la fabricacion de la Pulsar 200 y de la Pulsar 400.

    1- Bajar el peso de la moto. La Pulsar 200ns pesa 145 kg, y se siente pesada para el motor de 200 cc. y se dificulta manejarla a baja velocidad y cuando se quiere parquearla sobre el montante central. Con menos peso se incrementaria el rendimiento de la moto.
    2-Subir unos centimetros el Manubrio para una conduccion mas comoda. Despues de un tiempo conduciendola, o en viaje de carretera, duelen las muñecas y los antebrazos.
    3- Bajar unos centimetros la altura del asiento. Yo mido 1.72 mts. y llego al suelo en las puntas de pie. Si quiero plantar uno de los pìes, tengo que inclinar la moto.
    4- Incluir en el tablero el indicador de posicion de marcha. Son 6 cambios y es dificil saber en cual cambio estas. Motos de menor precio y calidad que la Pulsar tienen indicadores de marcha.
    5- Permitir que la luz principal pueda flashear en luz alta para advertir a otros conductores. Solo se puede flashear en luz baja.(seguridad)
    6- Permitir que las luces indicadoras de viraje puedan flashear para indicar y advertir a otros conductores de nuestra posicion.(seguridad)
    7- Dar una nueva relacion en la marcha numero 6, para lograr una buena velocidad de crucero en carretera, con menos RPM.( que el motor trabaje mas suave y menos forzado).

    Esperando que estas sugerencias sean de interes de Bajaj para fabricar motos con una calidad superior
