This is a historic moment for Bajaj as exactly 15 years back in November 2001 the company had launched its iconic brand Pulsar which went on to define the sports motorcycle market in India. The Pulsar was a make or break model for the company which has scripted a success of its own.
Pulsar continues to be a market leader in the sports segment for 15 years. The new big bike model, which is scheduled to be launched around mid-December 2016, is also expected to dominate Indian roads in this segment for the coming decade.
First showcased as a concept at the 2014 Auto Expo as Pulsar CS 400, the new brand will be called Dominar.
The Dominar 400 will be powered by the KTM Duke’s 373.27 cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine. The motor will be de-tuned to 34.5 hp and will be paired to a 6-speed transmission.
