Bajaj is one of the leading motorcycle brands in India. The brand has a huge two-wheeler line-up for India. This post will shine a light on the two-wheelers Bajaj has planned for launch in India.
The most anticipated Bajaj new bike is the Avenger 400. The bike will have the same 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, triple spark plug, fuel injection equipped engine powering the Dominar 400. The engine will produce the same peak power of 39.4 BHP and peak torque of 35 Nm.
The peak power and peak torque however will be produced at different engine speeds (RPMs). This change will be carried out to ensure the engine suits the cruising needs of the Avenger 400.
The gearbox will also remain the same. However, it is yet to be revealed whether the bike will come with a slipper clutch or not. The bike will surely have ABS for the front disc brake. But it is yet to be revealed whether the bike will come with a rear disc brake as well. If the bike is offered with dual disc brakes then dual-channel ABS will be standard. If not then a front disc and rear drum brake will be standard. The rear drum brake unit will continue to be paired with the anti-skid system found in the Avenger Cruise 220.
The suspension setup of the bike will also be revised. The suspension setup revisions will be done so that they can support the additional weight of the 400 CC powerplant. Styling aspects of the bike might be similar to the Avenger 160 Street or the 220 Cruise.
Bajaj has plans to move the speedometer of the bike to the top of the fuel tank. It would be a throwback to the styling elements of the Eliminator – the predecessor of the Avenger. Eliminator was a cruiser bike Bajaj made in the days when it was partnered up with Kawasaki in India.
Pulsar 220 F
Bajaj has assured its customers all over India that it will be bringing back the Pulsar 220 F. If the bike is launched then it would an interesting affair.
Well, as the spiritual successor of the 220 F, the F250 is already on sale. The details such as engine specifications, styling, features, etc. are yet to be revealed. But it is expected that the bike would retain its original styling elements in a refreshed form. The engine might be borrowed from the F or N250. Finalising the Pulsar 220 F bike price in India would be a gamble. If the pricing is not right then the legendary bike might lose its charm among Pulsar purists.
The moment the Dominar 400 was launched, it was evident that Bajaj would use the bike’s engine on other models. The engine of the D400 will already come in the upcoming Avenger 400. Hence, it makes sense for Bajaj to use the same engine to launch a more powerful version of the RS200. In terms of styling and onboard features, the RS 400 will be the same as the RS 200. This formula works as it has worked for the Dominar range. Both the D250 and D400 look the same and offer the same features. The only difference between the Dominar bikes is their engines. Hence, the same formula would work in the case of the RS200 and the upcoming RS400.
New generation Pulsar 150
A new and modern avatar of the Pulsar 150 has been in the works for some time. The chassis of the bike will be borrowed from the Pulsar N250. The engine will be the same that moves the current generation of the Pulsar 150. The power and torque outputs, however, will be increased with a remapping of the ECU. The bike is expected to have traditional fork suspensions at the front. The rear wheel, however, might come with a monoshock suspension. The bike will be offered in front disc + rear drum and dual disc variants. New features like a projector LED headlight unit, new alloy wheels and colour schemes for the bike are also expected.
