Pune, May 23: Pune based Bajaj Auto plans to launch a series of new bikes in the coming twelve months, including two new Pulsar, and six new Discover variants.
Published reports suggest that the company will come out with two new Pulsars bikes, one larger and one smaller than the currently available Pulsar 200 NS. The first will be a bigger Pulsar, possibly powered by a 375 cc engine. On the other hand, the smaller Pulsar will be a 150 cc offering, a segment which offers strong sales.
Reports also suggest that the Bajaj Pulsar 375 will be based on the KTM Duke 390, which means that we now have a solid player in the affordable performance bikes segment in the country. The Pulsar 375cc variant will share design cues with the 200NS and will become the flagship product of Bajaj for at least next few years.
In terms of design and styling, the P375 will sport twin pod projector headlights as well as USD front forks and ABS.
Other similar details include the typical Pulsar aircraft type fuel lid, a similar cowl around the instrument panel and tank design that has a hint of that of the 200NS.
Reports suggest that P375 could feature a triple spark plug layout that is seen on the 200NS. The 375′s engine is likely to produce a power output of 38-42HP. The bike is likely to cost in the range of Rs 2 lakh.
