Bajaj Pulsar 375cc Is Coming Soon [Upcoming Bikes 2013]

by Joy on October 4, 2012

 

With the Pulsar series, Bajaj Auto has carved out a unique segment of affordable enthusiastic motorcycles. The newly launched Pulsar 200NS has been the most major upgrade the Pulsar series has seen in years and has been a huge success with the Pulsar fans. But restricting the Pulsar to 200 and below cubic capacity engines is not what Bajaj intends to do with Pulsar brand. Rather, they want it to achieve new heights. Bajaj Auto’s Managing Director, Mr. Rajiv Bajaj confirmed that Bajaj’s R&D team is very busy working on a 375cc version of the Pulsar that is expected to hit the market in 2013.

Although no further information has been disclosed about the bike yet, we can guess few things very easily. The bike’s styling will be heavily based on the 200NS with some minor tweaks here and there. But, the appeal will get bigger with a 375cc motor underneath. Bajaj Auto is known for bringing out some of the industry-first technologies like the triple-spark plug in 200NS and the 375cc might also get something similar. However, will the 375 receive a similar name as the 200NS is not yet known.

With a growing number of motorcycle enthusiasts in the country, demand for higher capacity displacement bikes is definitely on the rise. Bajaj Auto clearly understands that and is heading in the right direction fulfilling the needs of consumer with affordable sporty motorcycles. With Kawasaki and KTM already under its umbrella, it will be interesting to see how Bajaj Auto defines the space of each brand and prevents from cannibalizing the other.

They better not bring anything with a full fairing as the current segment u take 220cc or even 200 ns they vibrate so much at a certain rpm that it is not good for the rider. Well getting something with a full fairing it will have a good vibrations also if they do get then I think they should give free tapes also to there respective dealers for us.

Okay fine, 200..220…Honda 250..P:ulsar 375… fine. Great looking and riding bikes and tech upgrades. But where are the roads and where is the petrol…?
I bought my first bike 250 CC-Yezdi in 1978 in Chandigarh for Rs 6400/= and the petrol was Rs 3.40/per litre. It took 16 years to get a Bajaj scooter and 500 US$ foreign exchange to get a Chetak. God where is the country going..?

This is a good chance for Bajaj to show the world it can be a force also in the arena of bigger displacement engines. As long as Bajaj keep the prices of its product at affordable level there will always be a dedicated followers under its wings.

Guys , well I am proud of BAJAJ as they are the sole INDIAN manufacturer making there mark in international market, which makes me even prouder INDIAN…
I own NINJA250r , and some would say why KAWASKI if I love BAJAJ … well they do not have a sports bike and none other exist which can compete NINJA…
But if BAJAJ had it, I would love to own it….
—–
I recently had an encounter with BAJAJ 200 NS , and he was competing with me , and let me tell you I had a tough competition …. and I was really amazed at this 200 NS …. which I already loved due to looks but now also respect it …
——
So all those , saying shitty things about BAJAJ and their bikes , I would like to differ – think before you speak … BAJAJ has come a long way from scooters to beating the world LEADERS like HERO Moto corp

People who think Bajaj is shit might have never owned one in the past 15 years… Without knowing how it was back then and without experiencing their latest products (Read 200NS and 125ST, especially), one can never say Bajaj is bad just because their last impression was about 15 yrs back…. But those who’ve not just seen Bajaj but also followed it right from Hoodibaba days through the Pulsars and discovers would have definitely felt the difference in the strides taken by Bajaj.

Zeru October 5, 2012 at 11:38 pm

I’m not sure if this is a right move. Just because premium segment market is starting to increase in India doesn’t mean Bajaj can simply keep increasing their cc-s in their new bikes.

Pulsar 220 has fallen a step back in technology after the 200NS launch. That keeps 200NS as the sole flagship product for Bajaj. Honda’s CBR250 is ruling the segment with Ninja and Hyosung peeking in. Karizma still has a huge fan following. It would be good if Bajaj would concentrate on looting a larger share of the pie in the 200-250cc segment before moving on to 300+ cc-s.

Any Bajaj ears hearing??

For those who complain about bajaj’s build quality….please take a look at Honda’s product. They r selling plastic junks….but its going gud for them.
After unicorn…Honda has only produced cheap quality products…even their topline 250R lacks build quality.

I owned 3 bajaj products over 15 years….and must say…they have improved over the years.
Bajaj didn’t had the capital as Yamaha’s or Honda….but still they did a splendid job! Hats off !

Ben October 8, 2012 at 9:05 pm

Dear Harneet, know history before speaking. I accept that early pulsar’s were better than cbz in the performance segment. But not with the case of the early segment leader suzuki fiero. Those times pulsar was far behind fiero in sales. It began to pickup sales only after the halt of fiero. If fiero was developed at the same pace as pulsar, now pulsar would be nowhere. Suzuki exited india for nearly 4 years which was the only jap to launch a 4 stroke 150cc bike against pulsar in those times. In that 4 years gap yamaha and honda didnt have any 150cc bike. So in the early stages of pulsar it was only competing against weak rivals cbz and tvs’s version of fiero. So the popularity gained by it in those 4 years only made pulsar attain this level. But now the japs are very well aware and pulsar can not even think of attaining higher sales. Now also it is not too early, if yamaha decreases the price of r15 about 20000 just think what will happen to pulsar.

Harneet October 11, 2012 at 12:56 am

Dearest BEN,
History — lets take a look —
BAJAJ Bikes —1997
YAMAHA – Bikes Since 1955 –in INDIA since 2008
Do you really want to compare THE YAMAHA , THE SUZUKI .. with BAJAJ …. if yes , then please check the pages of HISTORY and do enlighten the world about how long these so called WORLD LEADERS have been in RnD and manufacturing BIKES ….
If BAJAJ who has come recently into BIKE manufacturing is making these leaders sweat with their superior bikes developed by spending million of dollors and generation of research, then one need to realize how far BAJAJ can really grow and how soon it can out do them ….
—————–
If you are talking specifically for PULSAR then this was there entrant in 150cc segment and an entrant bike doing so well , I guess everyone need to appreciate them rather then saying — SUZUKI got out , Hero-Honda – CBZ was weak … BULL SHIT — …. CBZ wasnt weak, it was a tough competitor , and FIERO was no-where a people champ bike — no body liked fiero

Ben October 13, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Dear Harneet, I appreciate the development of bajaj within this short period. But dont forget that it is now the only company to be still backed by jap kawasaki without any break unlike tvs motors and hero moto corp and now another company included is ktm. I didnt say fiero was a pure jap. Like pulsar, it was developed by a indian company tvs motors backed by a jap suzuki. When suzuki exited india tvs had no technology that it can incorporate in it’s version of fiero. That was a great advantage for pulsar. Who said old cbz was a tough competitor. It is the most under powered 150cc bike ever launched in india. Please google and read reviews of shootout between pulsar, cbz and fiero written a decade ago. Or else test drive a decade old pulsar and fiero yourself and then comment back. By this I dont want to degrade pulsar’s image. I just want to tell the real fact about what is in bajaj that they are actually boasting about when compared to other companies. See the pricing strategy of bajaj. For nothing they hike prices even when the japs are quiet. They also boast that they are the no. 1 company and the only indian company when they are still backed by kawasaki and ktm. Actually a indian company should launch affordable motorcycles than foreigners but for bajaj its just opposite. Also know that bajaj is the leading profit maker in indian automobile industry.

375 CC!
O Mr. Bajaj, Please add a Music Player, with six speakers and a Touchscreen Smartphone Sync techometer.

Sorry for such a comment, but 375 cc! are you serious?

Yes 375CC KTM engine!! With KTM in hand it is easy for Bajaj to make 500cc+ engines!!

Reply

Sreekanth October 16, 2012 at 10:06 am

It is hard to digest the fact that an Indian based company developing a 375cc engine with the help of KTM right? So if Bajaj does’t have that potential why would a company like KTM join hands with and start a Venture?? 47% of KTM is Bajaj now!! But still you like a Japanese made R15!! I dont critisize Yamaha or Honda!! they do a very good and neat Job!! they are in this market since how many years?? Bajaj has entered Biking industry very recently so its new to this industry!! But still it has a huge fan base and they are the hot selling bikes!! so Respect an Indian company that’s trying to compete with World leaders in Motorbikes!!

KAM KI BAAT TU DEKH, KE HEROMOTO MAESTRO KO INTRODUCE KARTE HI IS JAGAH PAR PAHAUCHA, ACTIVA WITH A FRESH FACELIFT WILL ALSO WORK WONDERS.

EK BAAT TU APNE DIMAG MEIN GHUSALE KE KAWASAKI KO BAJAJ KA ZAROOT NAHIN HAI, USKA PRODUCTS, USA AUR BAHAUT SAARI DESHON MEIN BIKTA HAI JAHAN BAJAJ KA SURAJ NAHIN UGTA. AUR BHI BAHAUT SI DHANDE HAI KAWASAKI KE JAHAN TERA BAJAJ DANT NAHI GARA SAKTA, JAISE ROBOTICS, RAILCAR, ETC.

THERE IS MUTUAL BENEFIT FOR BOTH. KAWASAKI WILL DERIVE A PLATFORM TO ASSEMBLE THEIR BIKES BROUGHT IN HERE VIA CKD ROUTE AND LIKE ALL OTHER AUTOMOBILE GIANTS PLANNING TO MAKE INDIA AN EXPORT HUB.

NINJA KA PRICE KAB KAM HUA ITNE SAALON MEIN, MENTOS KHA DIMAG KI BATTI JALA. TEREKO YEH BHI PATA NAHIN KE EK NINJA KA SERVICING MEIN KITNA KHARCHA HOTA HAI? USKA EK EK PURJA KAWASAKI ORIGINAL KA PACKING MEIN AATA HAI WITH BARCODING OF OTHER COUNTRIES. KABHI KUAN SE NIKAL, BAHAUT KUCH NAYA DIKHEGA.

PRICE OF LATEST SPECIAL EDITION NINJA 250R IS Rs 2,35,290.68 IN USA. TERE HISAB SE INDIA MEIN TO 2 LAKH MEIN MILNA CHAHIYE. KYA PRICE HAI NINJA KA INDIA MEIN, PATA HAI?

SABSE AHEM BAAT. TERA BAJAJ KA SHURUAT SE AAJTAK KHARIDA HUA, CHURAYA HUA, NAKAL KARTA HUA HI PALA BARA HAI. TERA CHETAK BHI EK VESPA HAI, AUR M-50/80 EK HONDA CUB. BAJAJ TOH ITNE SAALON MEIN AVENGER KO ELIMINATOR BANA NAHIN SAKA.

CHAL HATA, ZYADA BAKWAAS KARKE KYUN APNE JAHALAT KA BAR BAR EGJAMPUL(EXAMPLE) DE RAHA HAI. KHUD BHI SHANTI SE RAHO AUR DOOSRO KO BHI SHANTI DO.

Mere answer late ho gaye because it tere reply ki koi mail ya intimation nahi aata.

1….I know very well ke Kawasaki is well known brand in international market. But For Indian market they have to take help from Bajaj.
2. Today all bike makers are coming to India, because there is huge benefit.
3. Bacho jaise baat mat kar….Pointless to tu ho raha hai….
Ninja Price is best for it’s class as per their quality and brand. Maine kab kaha ki ninja ki price bada jayada hai..

agar tune uske liye pay kiya to tu uska boss hai.

That’s the thing tu apne dimag main daal le..

5. Eliminator and avenger both products from Bajaj. Avenger aaj bhi bikti hai and yamaha enticer is out of the market..

First of all, Yes Bajaj is coming up with Pulsar375 but along with Duke 375!! And to all those comments which say bad about Bajaj!! You will soon see where Honda, Bonda, Yamaha will stand in near future!! Quality is all about you talk!! Tell me why is a 150cc R15 priced almost 1.5Lac?? Quality!! Yes, cause Bajaj knows pricing the bike so high just for quality doesn’t seem promising!! if you all talk about quality why is that Bajaj bikes are still accepted by public? Not everyone here can afford a R15 or CBR250!! so its not always what you think!! and Bajaj R&D is not mad to introduce 3 spark plugs! i too thought it was foolishness when my Duke can run well with a single spark plug why not a P200 NS!! but then i am not a Designer to talk whatever i like! So i agree there is a reason for 3 spark plugs!!
So to all the Bajaj fans out there! This will be a really good and affordable performer! :)
waiting for the bigger Pulsar now!

Dear sreekant, I will accept each and every thing u said if bajaj develops its bikes singlehandedly like tvs motors. But it is the only company still now backed by two giants without any break for almost 2 decades. Then how can u call bajaj a indian company comfortably leaving tvs which is the true indian company standing alone. About pulsar, it is the most available bike and the cheapest bike in the second hand bike shop. This is the true public acceptance. About quality, fz is similarly priced to pulsar150. But see the quality of parts and features like mono suspension, engine refinement and body detailing works. Dont forget than bajaj has kawasaki in its hands. About duke200. Now its only about 15k lesser than cbr250. But see the torque figures of both bikes. Can bajaj offer abs for that price. Finally hatsoff to you bajaj fans for making bajaj the leading automobile profit maker in the name of indian company and restricting japs from launching good products at affordable price.

EAST OR WEST BAJAJ IS THE WORST…My 220f 6 months old struggles to reach even 100 and mileage is around 26 or 28 kmpl…engine feels very very rough…fairing vibrations…..gears don’t fall in place…clutch slippage…shit load of problems.. I will kill Rajiv Bajaj if he ever comes in front of me..I was using Honda Unicorn for 5 years..thought of buying CBR 250R and don’t know what happened i bought this crap for 97,000 on road. I feel duped now.. If this was USA i could have sued Bajaj for Millions of $’s. NEVER BUY BAJAJ!!!! If any one needs my bike i will sell it for 85000/- now..price slightly negotiable!

Write a letter a sued Bajaj…First you need to find good advisor who understand engine and quality control, and hearing from expert of motorcycle, than let the expert check your riding behaviour, petrol control, service control, as by book, and many more, after all evidence are full filled than find a good attorney, who know you could earns your Bla bla bla Million dollars…..good luck

People, remember one thing…bcoz of Bajaj u r getting r15 at 1.25 lac only otherwise Yamaha would have sold that at 1.75.
Becoz of Bajaj u have a cbr 250 at 1.75 otherwise it would have been 2.5 lac.
Bajaj make the Japanese bend their knees…
Affordability is also the key, dont forget. A college goer dreaming for 200 cc + motorcycle….can’t spend 2-3 lacs.
