Bajaj Auto has unveiled his next generation Pulsar 2012 recently. At this launch Rajiv Bajaj, MD and CEO of Bajaj Auto has confirmed that the company will soon be launching 350cc bike from the Pulsar series at an affordable price.
When the KTM Duke 200 was launched, it was announced the KTM would launch Duke 350 in India. Following the heels of KTM, Bajaj will bring an affordable 350cc called Pulsar 350NS (NS refers to Naked Sports). It’s no wonder, duke 350 and Pulsar 350cc will share the engine and chassis. Now we can stop blaming the manufacturers. Global bikes at Indian cost are here.
Thus, we expect the Duke 350 to arrive before the Pulsar 350 in 2013. Bajaj will use its own technology on the lower half block of the KTM motor to differentiate the Duke and Pulsar. Expect a price below Rs. 1.75 lakhs, with the Pulsar 350 using a twin-cylinder motor, producing close to 33 BHP of power and 25 Nm of torque. The Pulsar 350 will be the flagship variant of the Pulsar series from 2013, pushing the 2012 Pulsar 200 NS off its perch.
