Bajaj Pulsar RS400 – All You Need to Know!

After tasting success in the middle-weight category with the Dominar 400, BAL could finally roll out the Bajaj Pulsar Rs400

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 in 2016 and Mr Rajiv Bajaj, MD, Bajaj Auto, later hinted that even the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 launch is on the anvil. From this, it’s clear that the 400cc Bajaj Pulsar is under development and our understanding is that it will be ready for market introduction later this year. However, it could first launch in Thailand. In that market, there is a better demand for mid-sized engines. RS400 will carry slightly different looks when compared to the Pulsar RS200. Of course, the RS 400 will then launch in India and will rub shoulders with the equally promising Dominar – a motorcycle based on the CS400 concept that shared floor-space with the faired flagship Pulsar back at the Auto Expo 2014. Here, in this post, we have put together all the important details on the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 launch.

RS400 will borrow its engine from the Dominar 400, or the KTM Duke 390. The power figures are likely to be the same as seen on Dominar. After Indonesia, the bike will head out to the Indian market.

Bajaj Pulsar RS400 Launch Date2020

The Bajaj Pulsar RS400 launch was speculated to take place in 2018. The RS400 might be the most expensive bike from Bajaj. It is expected to be launched in India this year itself, towards the end of months. The Pulsar RS400 launch will be really important for Bajaj Auto Ltd. 

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 Dominar. Our guess is that in terms of pricing, the RS 400 will be positioned just a tad higher than the Dominar 400.

Expected PriceRs 2-2.3 Lakhs

Bajaj Pulsar RS400 Design Review

The Pulsar RS400 will adopt a different design than the RS200. While the overall styling might be similar, the only little differentiation comes from a raised handlebar. The RS400 will be positioned as a sports tourer and not a faired sports bike like RS200. It will boast of a full front fairing that will house twin projector headlamps. Furthermore, the headlamps will be accompanied by LED DRLs. There will be a large windscreen up front which should offer sufficient wind protection. Moving on, it will get a split seat setup. The tailpiece looks sufficiently modern but isn’t the prettiest of designs. The LED taillamps look bold enough.
