Bajaj Auto planning Bajaj Pulsar RS400 flagship model – Report

At 2014 Indian Auto Expo, Bajaj Auto first introduced two new 375cc flagship model under the Pulsar brand name: the Bajaj Pulsar SS400 and Bajaj Pulsar CS400.

Bajaj Auto is all-set to launch the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 in Indonesia in August 2020.

The Bajaj Pulsar SS400 with a full fairing and twin projector headlamps, came into production in 2015 with a 200cc fuel injected engine derived from the NS200, and was called Bajaj Pulsar RS200. However, the CS400 went through a series or rebranding before the official release (Pulsar CS400, Pulsar VS400, Bajaj Kratos 400). Finally it was spawned as the Bajaj Dominar 400 separating itself from the Pulsar range.

Since the introduction, the Bajaj Pulsar SS400 likely to be called Bajaj Pulsar RS400 has been a hot topic among the bike enthusiasts in comments and forums. Finally now it seems to be a reality soon, as an Indonesian media report claims that Bajaj Auto is all-set to launch the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 in Indonesia in August 2020. Pune-based bike maker has already completed the required documentation with the Indonesian Government.

As of now, there isn’t any reports or whatsoever on the Bajaj Pulsar RS400’s India launch.

Bajaj Auto has a stronghold on the Indonesian market and even motorcyclists are anticipating the launch of a Dominar 400-based faired motorcycle. Initial Thoughts its obvious for us to assume that the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 would basically be the full-faired Bajaj Pulsar RS200 motorcycle sharing the Dominar 400’s mechanical parts and engine.

However, you’re wrong as the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 would get some tweaks to differentiate it from the younger sibling like a twin LED headlamps along with LED DRLs, fully-digital instrument cluster similar to Dominar 400, fresh set of LED taillamps, split seats and split pillion grab rails. It is a no-brainer that Bajaj will deploy the same engine found on the Dominar 400, but they will tune the engine to suit the character of the Bajaj Pulsar RS400.

Currently, Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is the only fully-faired motorcycle in Bajaj Auto’s line-up.

Furthermore, there are unconfirmed reports that unlike the Pulsar RS200, the Bajaj Pulsar RS400 would feature more comfortable riding ergonomics and lower saddle height which would make it accessible by a wider audience. It would appear that Bajaj Auto has taken this step to ensure that even the shorter riders in Indonesia welcome the Pulsar RS400.
