Bajaj Pulsar VS400 Could Be The Production Name Of The CS400; Specifications Leaked
Bajaj Auto is gearing up to introduce the Pulsar CS400 within this quarter in the country and new details have emerged regarding the production version that puts the motorcycle in a completely new perspective. As per the leaked brochure and an ARAI certificate report (both unconfirmed), Bajaj’s flagship offering will in fact be called the ‘VS400’ instead of the earlier speculated CS400, while power output is can be confirmed to be lower than the KTM Duke 390.The leaked images of the biggest Bajaj motorcycle show the VS400 badging on the panels just under the pillion seat, while the fuel tank carries the ‘Pulsar’ branding. There aren’t any more details on the bike visible with the new nameplate. In addition, an ARAI Certificate (not confirmed if authentic) dated July 23 2016, has made its way online and carries the same VS400 moniker. Moreover, the document states that the VS400 uses a 373.27cc engine that will produce 25.74 kW (33bhp) of power at 8000rpm. The gross weight mentioned in the document is 332 kg and includes the bike’s kerb weight as well as the weight of the rider and pillion.

If the ARAI document is to be believed, our speculations are in fact true. The new Bajaj Pulsar VS400 makes lesser power than the KTM Duke 390, which churns out 43.5bhp. It will need to be seen though as to what will be the torque output on the sports cruiser.

As for the new nameplate, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Bajaj has changed the moniker on the production version of the CS400. If you would remember, the Pulsar RS200 started life as the SS400 concept that was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo. This does raise the question as to what does ‘VS’ stand for. Is Bajaj trying to rub the V15’s success on its flagship offering? That would be an interesting take.

In terms of features, the leaked brochure and document convey little, but we do know that the Bajaj Pulsar VS400 will be coming with a host of tech including an all-digital instrument console and a fuel tank mounted digital display, dual channel ABS, split seats, telescopic front forks and a monoshock rear suspension setup as well as a stubby side mounted exhaust. The 373.27cc engine will be liquid-cooled and will come with Bajaj’s trademark triple-spark technology, while spy shots have revealed the LED headlight and tail light clusters on the production ready models.

A lot is riding for Bajaj with the new VS400 and the company is banking on the success of the new model to drive its growth in the premium motorcycle segments. With an expected price tag of ₹ 1.8 lakh (on-road), the VS400 will appeal to the masses and will be gradual transition over the RS200, the bike maker’s current halo product. Clearly, the buzz around the biggest Pulsar is only going to get higher from here. We expect to here from Bajaj very soon now.
