Bajaj Pulsar SS400 Review

Overview

Slowly spreading its cards this year, the Ace of Bajaj Autos is still not on the table. With the expectations like Pulsar 400SS or Pulsar SS400, the Ace (400SS) would be the commander of the Pulsar series. It would be a benchmark for the other motorcycle manufacturer’s as the competition for more performance oriented bikes will definitely rise this year. It is expected to be launched in India within next 9-12 months.

QUICK FACTS & OVERVIEW
Type Sports
Shades Yellow/White, Red/White, Blue/White, All-Black
Current Status Upcoming
Summary Bajaj Pulsar SS400 is one of the two concepts that rocked the Auto Expo and led to the production of RS200. Bajaj Auto has never hinted at any possible launch for the same while it is expected to carry the same spirit as RC390, sharing its engine with the mighty sprinter. It will definitely weigh more but coupled with Bajaj DTS-i and triple spark system, it can return a nice mileage and performance figure.

Design and Style

The 400SS is said to share its design with the recently launched RS200. Sharing each and every curve, the bigger Pulsar would be a replica of the smaller one, with more power under the faired body. Twin projectors at the front and LED tail lights will all be the same for both the bikes.

Instrument Console

Bajaj will be sharing its most advanced instrument console on all its 200 and above cc bikes in the future. From the 200NS to the RS200, and now to the SS400 and maybe the same for the CS400 also, Bajaj has a semi-digital, a good looking console which evenly fits all. With a tachometer in the center and the digital speedometer at right, it looks pretty much perfect to the Pulsar family.

Engine and Performance

It comes with a 373.2 cc engine, which is expected to produce 40-42 Bhp of maximum power and 33-35 Nm of maximum torque. The engine will be a single cylinder unit with triple spark technology. It would be a liquid cooled unit using fuel injection as standard if it arrives in more than 1 variant. Pulsars are known for their raw performance stats and this beast would be again proving the quote to be universally true. A 6-speed manual transmission will be used with an expected slipper clutch being standard on it.

Expected Acceleration and Performance

Bajaj Pulsar SS400 can reach a top speed of above 150 kmph and will take about 7-8 seconds to reach 0-100 kmph acceleration along with an expected mileage of 25 kmpl.

Suspension and Brakes

The front of the new Pulsar would have Telescopic Upside down forks and the rear would get a monoshock with few steps adjustment. The front disc brake is expected to be a 300 mm, equipped with ABS and the rear is a 230 mm, also with ABS. The dual-channel ABS provision is expected to be Optional for the Pulsar 400 SS. Metzeler tyres would be used, which would be larger compared to the RS200.
