We have been constantly reporting every single details of the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 375, now our good mate at Motoroids reveal that the all-new Bajaj Pulsar 375 will be introduced towards the end of 2013, probably in November-2013. The Pulsar 375 will be the most powerful Pulsar ever built and also be the company’s newest flagship offering.
As we said earlier, the Pulsar 375 is a counterpart of upcoming KTM 390 (375cc motorcycle), as is the case with the Pulsar 200NS and the Duke 200. The Pulsar 200NS has proved that not only is this a good idea, but that Bajaj and KTM know how to handle the simultaneous development of two models both of which are similar in role and intent but vastly different in positioning and price.
Bajaj’s newest flagship offering will look quite unlike the KTM 390 Duke and would sport a full fairing for the fairing hungry crowd of India. The Pulsar 375 will retain the Pulsar’s value-for-money proposition with healthy specifications and seriously quick performance. The big daddy of all Pulsars is expected to be priced around Rs 1.75 lakh.
Under the skin, the new Pulsar 375 will be a slightly re-worked version of the single cylinder, 375cc motor that is on duty in the Duke 390. Bajaj will inject its much publicized triple spark plug treatment into the 375cc Pulsar and it is also pretty sure that the engine would feature fuel injection.
Initially, the KTM Duke 390 will make its entry into India speculated as early as next-month and by the end of next-year probably in November-2013, the Bajaj Pulsar 375 will be introduced. This indicates that Bajaj Pulsar series will walk in footsteps of the KTM, offering similar performance at a more affordable price point.
