SCOOP! Bajaj 400 DOHC Engine In Making – A New 110cc Motorcycle and Heavily Refreshed Avenger Cruiser Incoming!

Bajaj 400 DOHC Engine means that an Apache RR310 rival is coming. 110cc means Victor will be rivalled and heavily revised Avenger series means getting ready for the future

We just heard the news from a Bajaj source who wishes to be anonymous saying that these motorcycles are a 400cc DOHC engine is being developed right now as we speak. 400cc DOHC engine is new because the Dominar uses a SOHC motor and a new DOHC motor means Bajaj could be planning the much awaited 400cc Pulsar RS is coming. There has been a lot of buzz about the same but nothing has been confirmed. This engine news does confirm the same. Also, what our source says that maybe there is a plan for a brand new brand name for this 400 DOHC engine motorcycle. The engine could well reach the 40 BHP mark and will surely come with Bajaj’s own ECU, triple spark technology and changes to the gearing.

Bajaj 110cc Motorcycle

Meanwhile, the 110cc premium motorcycle segment is booming. The success for the TVS Victor, Honda Livo and Hero iSmart 110 and proper aligning of this segment means that Bajaj could be the last entrant and try to eat a piece of this market share which is evolving. When it comes to the 110cc motorcycle it could be named as the Discover is what we think, our source suggests it could be given a brand new brand name as well. A 110cc motor which will be made for this motorcycle should offer class-leading performance and fuel-efficiency along with features that should help it stand out. There are reports of it being fuel-injected and have more than 2-valves.

Refreshed 2018 Bajaj Avengers

The threat from Intruder is real and Bajaj after updating the Avenger thoroughly in 2015, is coming back with changes substantial enough that will be noticed. There are going to the inclusion of many features and we think ABS could be offered. Every manufacturer has to launch products now which have to offer ABS before the deadline which is not far away and that is 2019. Bajaj has been proactive and we think ABS will be offered. Avenger 150 could be given more power since the 150cc motor in the Bajaj stable is available with many tunes. Right from 12 PS to 17 PS.

We expect these motorcycle to show up just before Auto Expo or after the same. Bajaj will make sure it continues to stay at the top of the motorcycle sales in the higher capacity segment. A segment it is losing to Honda. A lower capacity motorcycle market is shrinking and by 2020 it will be difficult to keep the smaller motorcycle running because it will become expensive and thus the value for money way of commuting could change and people would end up buying higher capacity engined scooters and motorcycles.

      Hey Ayub, as of now there isn’t really a word on the launch of the 400cc variant of the Pulsar RS. We suggest you look at the other options available right now.

    I was waiting for avenger 400 but it seems that Bajaj won’t come with it till next decade I love my own avenger and I am very disappointed with this idiotic news..
    I understand the competition concern with intruder but what about the competition with RE 350 segment which is doing far much more than dominar…..
    Bajaj come up with avenger 400 or else I will surely add a Thunderbird 500 to my list….
    Finger crossed for your decisions
