Bajaj Surprises and Launches Pulsar NS400, Its Biggest Motorcycle


Apparently, 300cc to 400cc motorcycles are becoming the new normal, with several brands launching models in this range. We can mention some, such as the new Triumph Speed ​​400 and Scrambler 400X, which are manufactured and sold in partnership with Bajaj in India.

Now, the Indian motorcycle and 3 wheelers giant has surprised the world and launched the all-new Pulsar NS400, its biggest bike in the Pulsar range.

Then you ask: But doesn’t Bajaj have the Dominar 400? Yes, but this model has the characteristics of a touring motorcycle, or crossover, as some know it, a transition between a ‘naked’ and a light adventurous touring bike, with a windshield and hand protectors, as well as other accessories.

The new Pulsar NS400 is a true ‘naked streetfighter’ and much more ‘naked’ than the Dominar 400. It has a body, especially the fuel tank, very similar to that of the Pulsar NS200 and NS160.

The front optical set, despite remembering that of the Pulsar N250, has its own characteristics, mainly in the DRL design and the fairing that surrounds it. The headlight’s LED projector remains centered at the bottom.

But it’s not just in design that the new NS400 stands out. It arrives full of technology that will make its rivals jealous. For example, it has a Ride-by-Wire throttle, 4 riding modes, Traction Control, two-channel ABS (with Ride Modes), 43mm Upside Down front suspension, and hydroformed handlebars with adjustable levers.

Finally, it features a digital color LCD dashboard with Bluetooth connectivity, which allows GPS navigation, manage music, answer calls and even time your laps on a track day.

The engine of the Pulsar NS400 is the already known one that powers the Dominar 400 and is derived from the KTM 390 Duke, that is, a 373 cm³ single-cylinder with liquid cooling, capable of generating up to 40 HP of maximum power, and 35 Nm of torque. It is equipped with a 6-speed gearbox and assisted and slipper clutch.

Anyway, the NS400 is already being sold in India for INR 185,000 (approximately US$2,216, in a direct conversion), in four color options: Brooklyn Black, Glossy Racing Red, Pearl Metallic White, and Pewter Grey.

For now, there is no forecast for this model to be sold in other markets around the world.
