The official unveiling date could be getting closer and work on the most awaited product from the Pulsar brand might be in the final stages. Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, MD of Bajaj Auto, has himself let out the info that Bajaj is going to introduce two “Super-Sports” bikes by this year, one of them being the Pulsar 375.
An artist has jumped into the hotspot of activity by digitally rendering two images of the First-Ever-Full-Faired-Pulsar for Top Gear India. Pictured here are two renders that were posted on an online gallery.
These pictures pretty much go hand-in-hand with what the initial spyshots have hinted. The point worth being driven home is that the Pulsar 375 will share quite a few parts with the Pulsar 200NS. In the worst case scenario, you might just be handed over a strapped-on fairing housing the bigger mill and a larger radiator in its fold.
Nevertheless, one look at the renderings and the slightly amateurish nature is staring in your face. The tank edges seem crudely done in both the pictures, along with those of the fairing. The windscreen itself seems a tad short and could belie the very purpose of thwarting the wind buffeting.
One can also notice a few differences from the Pulsar 200NS. The crankcase is different, and the tail cowl seems shorter than even that of the earlier spyshots. A welcome probability is the ditching of the rear-tyre hugger, displaying brawn in all its glory. Upfront, the fairing holds what many assume to be projector lamps. But what we see here is a fierce looking design which is all set to give its competitors a run for their money.
Here are the rumored specifications of the Pulsar 375. It might offer ABS as an option.
Engine : 4 stroke water-cooled single cylinder
Engine capacity : 373.2cc
Torque : 32Nm approximate
Power : 41.5HP approximate
Transmission : 6-speed
Dry Weight : 142Kg
Clutch : Hydraulic operated
Fuel system : EFI
Ignition system : Bosch EMS83
Braking System : Single Petal Discs at front as well as rear
Frame : Perimeter (Material/Construction Type is Unknown)
Suspension : Telescopic at front; Monoshock at rear
We feel the Bajaj Pulsar 375 will make a market entry by the festive season of this year. Being dubbed as the “En Masse” variant of the KTM 390 Duke, it will be priced lower. A 1.6-1.7 lakh tag is a reasonable approximation, unless Bajaj intends to pull off a Houdini Act with this price tag.
