Bajaj Pulsar RS400 Design Review
The Pulsar RS400 will adapt 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 upfront which should offer sufficient wind protection. Moving on, it will get 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.
