There might be only a single motorcycle brand in India which has labelled motorcyclism to an extended level of leisure, sports, and fun riding. Yup! We are of course talking about the India's no. 1 sports bike brand, Pulsar. Followed by a huge no. of fanatics and getting bagged innumerable awards in each Pulsar variant launch, the brand is hitting even topper than its manufacturer, Bajaj Auto.
Bajaj Auto launched its first Pulsar motorcycle with a minimal design in 2001. The bike was chiefly focused to destroy the stake of the meanwhile king of Indian roads, Hero Honda CBZ. Well, it worked for Bajaj. Not only the firm could bag the stake of CBZ, but also find its position way ahead of any machines in the class. In later periods, the Pune based consortium did several modifications to the Pulsar motorbikes to keep it updated and is running successfully for the firm now. Presently, Bajaj has 5 Pulsar variants namely the Pulsar 135 LS, Pulsar 150 DTS-i, Pulsar 180 DTS-i, Pulsar 220 DTS-i, and the lately launched Pulsar 200 NS.
In between, Bajaj had one more Pulsar machine, the Pulsar 200, which was obliged to discontinue production as the variant was sophisticated by the presence of the Pulsar 180 and the Pulsar 220.
In 2012, by introducing the Pulsar 200NS, which is similar in appearance with KTM Duke 200 (Bajaj has 47% stake in KTM Sportmotorcycle AG ), Bajaj showcased a new world of naked sports motorcycling at a budget pricing in India. As sources claim that the next Pulsar variant to get on streets is the Pulsar 375, expectations are sky-high. It is expected to have a fully-faired body kit. Well, it is what every Pulsar maniac is looking for; fully-faired bi-wheeler at a reasonable pricing.
Expecting dual-headlight is never going greedy. Even though Bajaj unleashed a naked motorcycle as its flagship wheeler, it's a fact that naked bikes have limitation to project aggressive design. Well, it's never impossible to expose in a fully-faired two-wheeler. And that will be the killer Pulsar 375. Further the machine will likely to be coupled with a newly designed split seat, which is more stunning to look at and to make long journeys quiet tirelessly. Presently, the Pulsar 200NS's ergonomics is not suitable for every rider. So we can certainly expect a makeover in the Pulsar 375. Also LED tail-lamp is expected.
Talking on its heart, Bajaj might be using a tuned 373.2cc, Single-cylinder, 4-stroke, spark-ignition engine, liquid-cooled engine that is used in the Duke 390. The Pulsar 375 is expected to deliver a whooping power of 45 bhp and thus to pass 150 kmph quiet easily.
However, there is no confirmation regarding whether ABS or dual front disc brake will find their position in the Pulsar 375. If so, that would even more poisoning to the class leading motorbikes, Honda CBR 250R, Hyosung GT250R and the ultimate Kawasaki Ninja 300.
Now, what all you have to do is to keep updated with us. We'll be buzzing you with each leaks provided to us.
Will it have ABS? What about the power and top speed? What all innovative stuffs will be seen?
