In a recent media interaction, Rajiv Bajaj, managing director of Bajaj Auto spilled the beans about the company’s plan to foray into a bigger Pulsar, the NS 400 which is now confirmed via Bajaj sources close to us. The company has seen unprecedented response for the recently launched Triumph Speed and Scrambler X 400 with the bike garnering 30,000 bookings within a couple of months. KTM 390 Duke is also performing quite well and buoyed by the response, Bajaj is now planning to launch multiple offerings across product platforms in the Indian market this financial year. We could see a new Dominar 400 and Avenger 400 as well.

A Husqvarna 400 launch is already done. Infact, the revised KTM ADV 390 will also come which will based on the upgraded GEN 3 platform that will offer even more of ADV-ness will come by late 2024 followed by a tougher and Enduro KTM ADV 390 variant coming in 2025. Bajaj clearly knows how to do the 400cc segment right!


Bajaj is gearing up to launch its most powerful Pulsar model, the NS 400 in India on May 3’rd 2024. The entire NS range has been updated with turn by turn navigation and other features of call, music and message read by Bluetooth on the instrument cluster once you have the Bajaj App installed. This is what we have seen on the N series of Pulsar’s as well! The NS 400 will get everything and more. This will include riding modes, ABS mode, traction control, USD Forks and better rear suspension is expected. The spyshots confirm the lack of sophisticated swingarm which isn’t surprising because Bajaj is going to focus the Pulsar 400 as an affordable performance machine, below the Dominar 400.

In terms of design we now see in spyshots that the tank extension and tail-piece is beefed up, the headlamp is all new after 13 years and the rear tail-lamps are yet to be seen. The motorcycle does seem to have more presence with bold stickers on offer. However, the real test will be when we see it on the roads and on launch.

We will have to see whether this engine is borrowed from the Dominar 400 (based on second gen KTM 390) or is inspired by the third gen KTM Duke 390 engine that went on sale in September 2023. Everything is under wraps when it comes to the NS 400 for now. This is a sign of huge surprise await enthusiasts. Expect power around 40 PS and 35 Nm of torque. A six-speed gearbox, liquid cooling, 4 valve and lot more tech is expected hardware wise. Stay tuned for a 400cc motorcycle that could cost around Rs 2.0 lakh on-road!
