More pictures of Bajaj's new 375 cc (rumoured) Pulsar have been posted on autocarindia.com. The pictures reveal a sharp looking motorcycle, that could turn the segment on its head with its features and pricing.

One can expect plenty of parts to be shared across the KTM 390 and the Pulsar 200NS (the instrument panel appears to be similar).

Weight reduction.

The bike will be so fast that the pillion feet will be flying in the wind, perfectly propped up by the laminar flow from that big fairing with humungous air scoops.

Rider needs pegs for the levers only.

I don't agree with that. Like the one showed below, this is exactly how a motorcycle looks like during the proto stage, but need not be the final design! If this belongs to Bajaj, then it's high time Bajaj should look into it's security/confidentiality measures

I couldn't stop laughing - I actually pictured it in my mind, along with the billowing hair of the female seated behind, screaming her lungs out!

Did you observe the handle bar sticks like a sore thumb? I mean the handle is like the ones on naked bikes, yet the body of bike isn't naked. Hybrid.

I think the pictures were photoshopped to remove the surroundings, in that course, he might have accidentally cut the foot pegs in photoshop.

Default Rajiv Bajaj hints at festive season launch for the Pulsar 375

Link to News Section

Bajaj Auto has plans of launching two fully faired Pulsars in the next few months. One of these motorcycles could be a new flagship model in Bajaj's range, in the form of the Pulsar 375. Speaking to the EconomicTimes, Bajaj Auto's Managing Director Mr Rajiv Bajaj hinted of the Pulsar 375 by terming it as the "first super sports bike to be launched in India by any two wheeler company".

Now, "supersports" is usually a term given to fully faired motorcycles that come with engine capacities near about 1 liter, in an inline-four configuration. So, by alluding to the supersport term, Mr Bajaj seems to be hinting strongly at the Pulsar 375 (a fully faired motorcycle). This motorcycle, due in 2013, could be launched during the Indian festive season, this October.

Details of the other faired Pulsar model remain sketchy at this point in time. Also, Mr Rajiv Bajaj has denied plans of entering the automatic scooter market despite the strong growth shown by the segment. According to him, the big volumes come from the motorcycle space and automatic scooters are yet to find acceptance in the Indian hinterland, where road conditions make motorcycles a better option.

Coming back to the Pulsar 375, while the full fairing will be a distinguishing factor of this motorcycle, it will use an engine derived from the KTM Duke 390. However, the Pulsar 375 could be positioned below the Duke 390 in terms of pricing, a strategy that Bajaj Auto adopted with the Pulsar 200 NS, which was positioned well under the Duke 200. So, expect a price tag below the 1.8 lakh rupee mark for the flagship product.

One giveaway of this projected pricing is that the spyshots of the motorcycle have indicated telescopic front forks, a factor that indicates that the Pulsar could sit under the Duke 390 (features USD front forks) in terms of positioning. The Pulsar 375 will be the first fully faired motorcycle in Bajaj Auto's history. Features such a projector headlamps and a monoshock rear suspension are likely to make it to the production version.

The heavily localized motorcycle will be produced at Bajaj Auto's Chakan factory, off Pune. Currently, Bajaj Auto's Chakan factory is operating at a reduced output with the majority of its workforce taking part in a labour strike. Bajaj Auto would be hoping to defuse the situation at Chakan before the onset of the festive season, a time when two wheeler sales peak. To keep production ticking, Bajaj Auto has moved Pulsar production to its Waluj factory, in Aurangabad.

Although not a big fan of the Bajaj Brand.. I had resisted my self to owning one, If the bike looks like as its depicted in the pic. I might own a bajaj soon. I am sure the price would be cheaper than the ktm 390. But again spending a lil bit more would land me a ktm 390.. I would rather flex the budget and get a KTM

To be quite honest the rear swingarm looks like a typical Indian Jugaad that is done in our Mavalli & Other areas. They just don't reek of any quality. (from my perception of the photos that have been put there.)
Will however reserve my comments when the bike is launched fully. Looking at the NS200 this might not trouble the buyer with temptations.

Unlike the 200 NS this one would be equipped with Fuel Injection.

The 200 NS didn't really impress me as compared to the scream on the Duke200, plus the power delivery.
