Bajaj launched the Pulsar RS 200 and the Adventure Sports models last year and the Dominar 400 this year. Now, it looks like the company is all set to launch a 400cc Pulsar in India.

Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Auto, earlier said that the Pulsar 400 will be launched “some point in this financial year”. Here, in this post, we have put together all the important details on the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 launch.

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.

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.
