The rumors and speculations surrounding the Pulsar NS400 will be laid to rest on May 3, 2024. Bajaj is all set for the global unveil of the biggest Pulsar till date, which will be followed by the India launch, likely on the same day.

While not much has been revealed about the Bajaj Pulsar NS400, it is likely to have the 373.2cc engine from the older KTM 390 Duke. What would be interesting to see is whether Bajaj dumbs down the performance like with the Dominar 400, or chooses to continue with the same 43 bhp and 3.6-kgm-producing engine.

The bike could have the same design as the current Pulsar NS200, but hopefully with some distinguishing elements apart from the livery. Furthermore, now that the N250 comes with traction control and ABS modes, it is likely that the NS400, too, could benefit from the same.

Hardware on the upcoming Pulsar should be the same 37 mm USD fork and monoshock suspension setup. Although braking equipment could be upgraded along with the tyres. That said, the console might be the same from the current NS200.

Considering the Bajaj Dominar 400 is priced at Rs 2.30 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the Pulsar could ask for a premium of up to Rs 7,000 for the performance, feature and hardware upgrades. But with the Triumph Speed 400 available at Rs 2.33 lakh, will Bajaj try to undercut it? We’ll know on May 3.
