The taste of the two-wheeler riders in India has been shifting gears drastically and the demand for more does not seem to end (read full). As result of this ever increasing demand, the bikes like the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the Duke 390 have got an overwhelming response. The other most exiting fact is that both these bikes are manufactured by Bajaj in India. After these two successful bikes it’s time for Bajaj to launch its much-awaited Bajaj Pulsar 375. Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, MD of Bajaj Auto Ltd., recently announced that the Bajaj pulsar 375 will be launched by the end of 2013 during this year’s festive season.
The Pulsar 375 will draw its roots from the Duke 390 and will be cheaper than the existing bikes in the segment. As renderings based on the spy shots reveal, the P375 will be the first ever fully faired bike from Bajaj that will house a twin projector headlamp, telescopic front forks and ABS. The P375 will also inherit some features like the instrument cluster, aircraft type fuel lid and some design feature on the fuel tank from the Pulsar 200NS.
The P375 will be powered by the same engine that power the Duke 390 modified to house a 4-valve head and the DTSi tech mechanism. The fuel-injection system will also be tunes for a better mileage. The expected price of the P375 is around Rs 1.7 lakh and at this price this “Super Sports” bike certainly super affordable and will certainly attract buyers hungry for performance bikes.
