Bajaj’s upcoming cruiser will share its engine with the KTM 390 Duke. However, it will feature Bajaj’s Triple Spark technology and it will be retuned to suit the cruiser nature of the VS400. Maximum power output will be around 35 PS while peak torque should be in the 35 Nm range. Mahindra Mojo is powered by a smaller 295 cc engine. While power and torque outputs are lower, peak numbers are achieved at a lower rpm. Mojo comes with Pirelli Diablo Rosso tyres and a generous 21-litre fuel tank.

Bajaj Pulsar VS400 vs Mahindra Mojo – Verdict

Bajaj’s upcoming Pulsar will be more suited to cruising rather than outright performance. Mahindra’s Mojo is also targetted at those looking for a cross country tourer. Bajaj’s strong brand name should help the Pulsar VS400 attract customers.

  • Design – Looks are a matter of personal taste. Both bikes get very distinctive styling.
  • Specifications – In terms of specifications, the Pulsar VS400 features a bigger and more powerful engine. However, peak power and torque from the Mojo’s 295cc unit comes in at a lower RPM.
  • Price – Bajaj will price the upcoming Pulsar VS400 around the Rs. 1.8 lakh mark. This means it will, in all probability, be more expensive than the Mojo.
