It is quite common that a bike that was planned for launch disappears in anticipation. But with such intense and detailed iterations, it could be brought back again.
The latest digital rendering of the Bajaj Pulsar 400cc model reignites the excitement around this anticipated product. It has been in the works for a long time now. With the kind of success Pulsar bikes have enjoyed across multiple segments, it is a pity that we have not seen a version of the bike in the 400 cc segment. Although, it might not bring in high volumes which is the reason why it might not have introduced it until now. Let us take a look at the details of this rendering of the Bajaj Pulsar 400F, which, in our books, looks like a perfect successor of the 220F. The images has been developed by Abin_Designs_511 on Instagram.
The overall silhouette reminds us of the Pulsar 220F and even some of the international middleweight sportsbikes. There are quite a few sportsbike-like elements in this version. The front fascia is quite compact and aggressive. The handlebars are sporty and not wide-body like some touring bikes. The fuel tank is massive with sharp creases. The large fairing is neatly integrated into the fuel tank which extends down to the lower body of the bike. The black graphics on red paint signifying 400 moniker looks attractive. The exhaust system is short but muscular. The underbelly support is there to protect the bike from scrapping on uneven surfaces. The alloy wheels looks chunky with large discs. The red inserts on the tyres are particularly desirable. The tail end is sleek and sharp with a split-seat setup. Anyone would want this version of bike to be parked in the garage.
Bajaj Pulsar 400F Specs
Taking reference of the Dominar 400, one could conclude that the Pulsar 400 would be great with the 373 cc fuel injected engine that would produce 43 PS and 35 Nm of peak power and torque. To complement this engine would be a 6-speed transmission. A dual-channel ABS must be standard with this bike along with the projector LED headlamps and taillamp. The bike must cost upwards of Rs 1.70 lakh, ex-showroom. KTM RC 390, Ninja 300, Benelli TNT300, Yamaha R3 and TVS Apache RR310 are some of the key players in the segment.
