Ever since the launch of the Dominar 400 in India, there have been rumours of the launch of a fully-faired version of the bike, which will become the new flagship model. Touted to be named as the Bajaj RS400, the rumours of the bike launching in the market later this year became stronger after an Indonesian website claimed that an employee of Bajaj commented on their YouTube channel giving the information of the bike. Well, there has not been any official announcement from Bajaj on the matter yet but here is a rendering image that indicates what the bike may look like when launched in the coming times.
The rendering image has been made by SRK Design for IAB. It is based on the Bajaj’s only fully-faired bike – the RS200 but gets more muscular and much more aggressive design. Bajaj RS200 has been around for a long time now but it has not received any major updates for a long time now. The rendering image shows that the upcoming bike will be launched with an all-new design and it may not get the layered design of the RS200.
The rendering image shows that the upcoming Bajaj RS400 will get twin headlamp set-up with LED DRL. The bike gets a sharp-looking front-end with integrated LED projector headlamps. The Pulsar RS400 will get a lot of parts from the Dominar to save the cost. Even though the image Pulsar RS400 here gets a redesigned fuel tank to accommodate the full fairing of the bike, both the bikes are expected to share a lot of parts including rear cowl, tail section, LED tail lamps and alloy wheels. Even the switchgear system and electrical systems will be similar.
Apart from these, the Pulsar RS400 will get powered by the same 373.3cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. It gets three spark plugs with fuel injection system and DOHC system. The Bajaj Pulsar RS4o0 will also share parts like the upside-down forks and negatively lit fully digital instrument cluster. The bike will also get disc brake set-up on both the wheels with dual-channel ABS.
As per rumours, Bajaj will launch the bike in Indonesia in August this year. However, no test mules of the bike have been spotted yet nor Bajaj has formally said anything on the launch of the bike. If the launch somehow happens, the all-new Pulsar RS400 will launch in the Indian market by the end of this year or early next year.
