Bajaj Auto is readying to launch its biggest and most powerful Pulsar on May 3 in India – the Pulsar NS400. However, ahead of this, Bajaj has released a teaser video that gives us a brief glimpse at the bike's front fender and alloy wheels. Based on that, the alloy wheel design is expected to be similar to that of the recently launched Pulsar N250. One can also see fat tyres, a rear disc brake, and a single side-mounted tyre hugger. While the exhaust is not visible in the teaser, there is a possibility that the Pulsar NS400 may get an underbelly exhaust. 

Given the fact that the upcoming Pulsar NS400 will be the biggest-engined Bajaj Pulsar, it will likely draw power from a 373.3cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that propels the Bajaj Dominar 400 and the KTM RC 390. Using this engine, the Dominar 400 makes 39.4bhp, whereas the KTM RC 390 generates 43bhp. We expect the Pulsar NS400 to produce between 40-43bhp. A 6-speed unit with a slip-and-assist clutch will handle transmission duties. 

Bajaj Pulsar NS400: Suspension, Brakes

Hardware-wise, the Pulsar NS400 will likely use the same perimeter frame as the NS200. The suspension setup should comprise an upside-down front fork and a preload-adjustable rear monoshock, while stopping power should come from a 320mm disc at the front and a 220mm disc at the rear, both mounted on 17-inch alloy wheels. 

Bajaj Pulsar NS400: Styling, Features

Though the Bajaj Pulsar NS400 is expected to look similar to the updated NS range, it could get different colours and graphics. In terms of features, it will likely offer full-LED lighting, dual-channel ABS, traction control, and an LCD instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation. 

Bajaj Pulsar NS400: Price, Rivals

Price-wise, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400 is expected to range between Rs 2 lakh and Rs 2.1 lakh (ex-showroom). Upon arrival, the bike will take on the Bajaj Dominar 400, KTM 390 Duke, Triumph Speed 400, and Husqvarna Svartpilen 401.
