Considering how often the Pulsar RS200 was spotted running about in prototype form, it was only a matter of time before its more sensible sibling, the RS400, gets photographed doing the same. Here it is then, making its spyshot debut prior to hitting the showrooms by March-2016.
From the spyshots, it’s evident the Pulsar RS400 looks exactly like the RS200, the only difference between the two bikes is the RS400 sticker on the rear panel. It further features similar twin projector headlamps, web-spoked alloy wheels and split LED tail lamps. An ABS sticker on the front fork, reveals that like the RS200 even the RS400 will come with an ABS option.
The major difference lies under the skin, the Pulsar RS400 is likely to inherit its engine from its Austrian sibling, the KTM RC390. This liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 373.2 cc engine spits-out 43bhp at 9,000rpm and maximum torque of 35Nm at 7,000rpm, paired to a 6-speed gearbox. Just like the KTM 390s, we are expecting the RS400 to come with an a slipper clutch system as an USP.
