The much anticipated version of the Bajaj Pulsar is under works, which is expected to be the Pulsar 375. Recently, the pictures of the performance oriented Pulsar have surfaced the interweb showcasing aggressive design elements. Bajaj Auto is expected to roll out the sporty new Pulsar 375 later this year. Meanwhile, the two-wheeler manufacturer is focusing on the launch of the Duke 390 from the KTM stable, which will share most of its technology with the upcoming Pulsar 375. The flagship model will wear full fairing to offer bike enthusiasts next level of style and sporty characteristics.
The Pulsar 375 will feature dual-headlights, clip-on handlebars with a sporty yet compact cockpit layout equipped with good quality Bajaj switchgear. The bigger and faster Pulsar will share the four-stroke and single-cylinder engine platform with the KTM 390 Duke. We expect the fastest Pulsar to churn out 40 BHP of power, mated to a 6-speed close-ratio gearbox. The engine will be liquid-cooled with 4-valve equipped head. The new Pulsar 375, sharing its technology with the Duke family is expected to have a rev happy engine, providing quick acceleration with an expected top speed of around 150 km/hr.
For the suspension setup, Bajaj Auto will be fitting the sporty new Pulsar with standard telescopic forks at the front, while a monoshock system at the rear. Single rotor disc brakes will be treated for braking at both the front and rear. The front will be using a petal shape rotor for better heat dissipation. For added braking power, the manufacturer will be offering the new Pulsar with ABS system as an option. Bajaj Auto is expected to position the new Pulsar 375 under the KTM Duke 390 in terms of pricing.
