Bajaj Pulsar RS400 Design Review
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 Pulsar RS400 Competition
The Pulsar RS400 will be rivalled 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.
