Default Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014

Bajaj has unveiled the Pulsar CS400, a naked street fighter bike concept @ Auto Expo 2014.

1. 375cc liquid cooled, 4 valve triple spark engine with FI.
2. 6 speed gearbox.
3. Equipped with ABS.

Power output and other specs have not been revealed. But we can safely expect the BHP rating to be almost identical to the Duke 390. However, like the 200 NS, expect the engine in a different state of tune.

Looks like a beefed up version of the 200 NS from this angle. Notice how high the tank is.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-02img_3042.jpg

Front end is noticeably different than the earlier Pulsar range.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-03img_3040.jpg

Rear three quarter is good to look at, with the extended tail end (mud flap) for the number plate mount.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-04img_3048.jpg

Headlamp is XL size, also, note how wide the front tyre section is. (May or may not make it to the production with this wide tyres)
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-05img_3041.jpg

Minimalistic tail design. Not a short number plate mount as the 200 NS, hence, no tyre hugger seen here.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-06img_3067.jpg

Speedometer on the tank, tachometer bar placed conventionally, in the speedo console. All digital. Conventional handle bars too.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-07img_3072.jpg

Headlamps were all LED. (Do remember, this is just a concept)
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-08img_3044.jpg

Scooped up tank, nothing new for the Pulsar series.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-09img_3059.jpg

Single piece seat for the rider+pillion. Pillion seat placed higher though.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-10img_3060.jpg

Tail lamp section is on a plastic cladding. Rear chain sprocket is all black.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-11img_3061.jpg

The typical Pulsar twin strip LED tail lamp.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-12img_3047.jpg

Almost dark grey engine casing.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-13img_3051.jpg

Short exhaust pipe.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-14img_3052.jpg

Front disc shows of the ABS sensor. Notice the inverted front forks.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-15img_3056.jpg

A better looking swing-arm compared to the earlier Bajaj's.

Bajaj has unveiled the Pulsar SS400, a fully faired bike @ Auto Expo 2014.

1. 375cc liquid cooled, 4 valve triple spark engine with FI.
2. 6 speed gearbox.
3. Equipped with ABS.

Power output and other specs have not been revealed. But we can safely expect the BHP rating to be almost identical to the Duke 390. However, like the 200 NS, expect the engine in a different state of tune.


The bike is full of lines flowing all across. Looks too busy a design.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-18img_3077.jpg

Grey, yellow, black and white lines make the already busy fairing look more busier.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-19img_3081.jpg

One is a projector & the other is reflector based. LED pilot lamps. Masses will like it.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-21img_3084.jpg

Front end is undeniably similar to the Energica by CRP Racing. However, very good looking.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-22img_3088.jpg

A mix of digital & conventional speedometer.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-30img_3105.jpg

Clip on handle bars, notice how raised they are.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-31img_3107.jpg

Rear three quarter view: Raised enough for that super sport look.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-26img_3094.jpg

Swing-arm looks a little longer than the CS400. Step-up seats.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-28img_3097.jpg

Pulsar branding, the same font, as always.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-25img_3093.jpg

Variant branding, stickers look low quality.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-24img_3092.jpg

CS400 gets inverted forks, but the SS400 gets the conventional telescopic forks. Disc brakes are not of the petal type.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-23img_3090.jpg

Twin strip LED tail lamps for being typical Pulsar, but more like chevron brackets.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-29img_3103.jpg

A closer look at the engine section.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-32img_3108.jpg

Fat rear section...

...Metzeler Sportec M5

Bajaj U Car Concept:

Engine capacity - unknown, 4 valve, triple spark FI petrol engine mated to a FWD AT.

Scissor doors

Closer look.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-44img_3025.jpg

Good looking grey alloys.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-45img_3026.jpg

LED light bars in the headlamps.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-46img_3027.jpg

Concept, yes. Good looking - YES.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-47img_3029.jpg

A look with the scissor closed.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-48img_3032.jpg

Tail lamps on the rear quarter glass.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-49img_3033.jpg

Quirky rear end, but has rear discs.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-50img_3034.jpg

Looks like a 'U' car.

Bajaj RE60 also made its presence felt, in a colourful way.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-54img_2997.jpg

And a lot of colours.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-55img_2999.jpg

Bumper looks too plasticy.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-56img_3012.jpg

Rear end resembles to the rickshaws, however, these are of the hard type. Engine to be accessed behind the center piece on the rear bumper.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-57img_3008.jpg

Centrally mounted speedo console. Everything is utilitarian to say the best. Notice where the handbrake is.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-58img_3002.jpg

Front seats are good to sit, not sit comfortably.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-59img_3005.jpg

Flat rear bench, shows a 60:40 split.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-60img_3007.jpg

Masked in black tail lamp.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-61img_3009.jpg

So is the head lamp.
Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-63img_3011.jpg

Good looking alloys, for a commercial vehicle concept.

The CS400 in my opinion has reminiscence of the second gen Pulsar 150/180 and they have taken cues from the Ducati Streetfighter as in the below picture.Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014-2011-ducati-streetfighter-s-images_0.jpg

400SS can easily fit into next TRANSFORMER movie. I mean the headlamp looks like face of an autobot. Jokes apart, I'm really happy that Bajaj is showcasing world class products. The 400 series can easily give a tough competition to international players, including KTM. Despite NS200 , Duke 200 is big success. I think CS400 wont be a problem for Duke 390. It will be nice tussle between RC390 and SS400, but I think SS will have advantage this time.

Thanks for the lovely pictures parrys.
I still can't believe that SS and CS are bikes made by Hamara Bajaj. Kudos to them for exceptional job they've done.

I've already started dithering on which of the twins to get home. Heart says SS, mind says CS. Can't wait for them to hit the roads. Hope its sooner rather than later.

BTW, sportec m5 on the SS are indeed Metzelers. Wonder what tires are shod on the CS.

Thanks for great pics and coverage - any news on when they'll launch the 400CS and 400SS?
The 400CS looks better equipped - USD forks, full digital console - so the SS gains a faring at the cost of these. Indication that 400CS and 400SS will be priced very close to each other?
Also, the Sportec M5 is a Metzeler tyre - the one provided on the Duke390. I seriosuly hope Bajaj doesn't cut cost and provide MRF RevZs for a 40+ bhp bike.

Was never a fan of BAJAJ, but i must admit that they did an exceptionally good job in making of CS400 and SS400.

SS400 looks amazing especially in this yellow colour and i am sure we are going to see a good number of these our roads

CS400- looks like it took inspiration from diavel(in a good way) and looks like its going to create a segment of its own

Knowing bajaj i expect the pricing to VFM

hats-off to BAJAJ

Cool Re: Bajaj Auto @ Auto Expo 2014

Thank you very much parrys for the nice pictures and the notes !!!
  • U Car Concept - a different piece altogether... stylish, sporty and smart! However, did anyone notice how the front wheel touches the fender arch with no space left in the wheel well. Why's that, is that acceptable in a concept?
  • RE60 - is the launch around the corner? did they provide any updates? It is a long time now. Pretty basic product, but I think it will do a lot good, if it can eventually replace the 3-wheeler auto-rickshaws.

Thanks,
C_

Thanks for the coverage. CS400 is simply stunning. Would have preferred better clip ons for the SS. Nevertheless great introductions by Bajaj cant wait to see them in production

CS and SS 400 looks the part for bikes from a global manufacturer! Proud of what Bajaj has done and kudos to the leadership team for working to get to this stage.
Hero and TVS can learn a thing or two.

Absolutely love the CS400. I cannot believe it's from Bajaj, they've evolved so much since the days of the Chetak. Also, I'm happy it is the road-version and not a concept. I just hope they change the 1990s handle and give us something better. Any idea on the price?
