Pulsar maniacs still need to be a bit more patient since the latest sources which are being disclosed picture that the Bajaj Pulsar 375 will make its entry only in 2014. It is expected that the much anticipated Pulsar 375 will make its debut appearance at the Auto Expo - the Motor Show 2014, which is scheduled to take place at Greater Noida Exposition Mart. So, a late entry will only boost the fame of the upcoming Pulsar 375.
"After the huge success witnessed on lately launched, the Pulsar 200NS, Bajaj was realized at good number of stake owned by the Pulsar brand in the Indian two wheeler industry. And Bajaj is very happy to utilize the brand name, Pulsar in rolling out bigger engined models. At present our R&D team is working hard to figure out a new Pulsar variant. It will be the biggest beast among Pulsars, namely the Pulsar 375," said Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Auto Limited.
The Pulsar 375 is proposed to be a similar product to the KTM 390 Duke, just like the Pulsar 200NS is similar to the 200 Duke. The Pulsar 375 is expected to generate a maximum power around 40 Bhp and a maximum torque around 30 Nm. Once the 375 is launched, it would be the most powerful and the best Pulsar till date. Inversely proportional to the 390 Duke, the Pulsar 375 will be a fully flaired machine, which will have a sportbike appearance and ambiance at look. One thing is damn sure, wherever Pulsar 375 is placed, there all we can find tons of eyes paying attention to it. So let us wait for this monstrous show stopper.
Concurrently, Bajaj is likely to postpone the launch of the 390 Duke India. Earlier the bike was sourced to be launched by March-April month. Now the leaks reveal that the 390 Duke will launch only by June 2013. Moreover, from Bajaj Auto's Chackan Plant, in Pune only, the 390 Duke bi-wheelers will be exported.
"It is a strategic decision with Bajaj to go for sporty, stylish motorcycles, even for the saturated markets, because cars have become too expensive. We are entering the US street-bike segment for the first time and, beginning next year, the Duke 390, built in India, would be sold in the US market," said Stefan Pierer, CEO of KTM-Sportmotorcycle AG.
Bajaj Auto has 47% share in the Austrian firm KTM Sportmotorcycle AG. It is also the only official dealer of KTM machines in India.
Between KTM 390 Duke may hit markets only by June 2013.
