The first spy  photos of the new Bajaj Pulsar have been released at the Internet by the Indian motorcycle community PowerDrift, naming the bike as Pulsar 350.

     It will be the new flagship of the Indian manufacturer. A new 375 c.c. single cylinder liquid cooled fuel injected engine delivering about 45 bhp is expected.  

     At the photos shown it is a full-faired bike, which increases the potential of the motorcycle. A naked and cheaper version could be on the way for some markets. Ktm has announced two versions for the future Duke 390.  LED daytime running lights are featured. The instrument resembles to that of the Pulsar 200 NS while the indicators resemble to the DukeĘs 125/200. The headlamps look like TriumphĘs Daytona 675 which also remind of a Ducati 1098.  

      The colors seem somewhat peculiar or old fashioned, blue/yellow.    However its very soon to judge by some spy photos. After all the Pulsar 200 NS in terms of styling, is  magnificent.  

      The Pulsar 375 is a very important bike not only for India or the Far East. Keeping tight connections with the oncoming  Ktm Duke 390, itĘs the first bike from the Indian manufacturer which can make it universal. 

     For India and the  Asian countries it could mean to be a superbike for the majority of consumers. For the developed markets it could be an economical bike, transforming  everyday rides into a more involving procedure.  Of course all these are a hypothesis,  one has to test ride the new bike before be carried away too far.  

     After all it should be reminded that the Ktm Duke range of the 125-200 and 390 c.c. is sharing basically the same platform, altering the engine capacity or even the whole engine. At the biggest 375 c.c. version  the Duke should weigh just 150 kg. 


    

2012/10/30. Bajaj to launch Pulsar 375 in 2013.

     This will be the high end model of the Pulsar range comprising of the 135, 150, 180, 200 NS and 220F variants. 
     The launch of the Pulsar 375 was quite certain since Bajaj Auto introduced the Pulsar 200 NS in 2012, which was based on the Duke 200. 

     These two bikes have many common parts. It is reminded that the second-largest motorcycle manufacturer in India, Bajaj, is also the second-largest shareholder in KTM, its investment position is just over 47%.

     Comment: Somewhat big for eastern countries like India, somewhat basic for western countries, remember the Yamaha SRX series. 
     However economies do go up and down around the world, making bikes like this luring to many different people, especially if their prices are kept low. And the Pulsar 375 will be cheaper than the Duke 375, which will compete with bikes like the Honda CBR 250 and the new Kawasaki ninja 300.
