Many teasers, a few spy shots, and a comprehensive leak later, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z has finally been launched, priced at Rs 1.85 lakh (introductory). 

Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z price, features, bookings, delivery details

The Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is powered by the same liquid-cooled, 373cc, single-cylinder engine as the Dominar and it makes the same 40hp at 8,800rpm and 35Nm at 6,500rpm. Bajaj claims that the NS400Z has a top speed of 154kph. 

The 6-speed gearbox setup and slip-and-assist clutch is also carried over here. However, unlike the Dominar 400, the Pulsar NS400Z uses an underbelly exhaust muffler, similar to the smaller NS200. 

Suspension duties are handled by a 43mm USD fork finished in gold and preload-adjustable monoshock. Braking duties are handled by a 320mm front disc mated to a 4-piston Grimeca axial caliper and a 230mmm rear disc. With its 12 litre fuel tank fully brimmed, the NS400Z wighs 174kg, which makes it 19 kilos less than the Dominar. It has an accessible seat height of 805mm, which should make it a fairly approachable machine for shorter riders. 

Tyre sizes are 110/70-17 (front) and 140/70-17 (rear) on the NS400Z. This makes the NS400Z one of only two 40hp bikes to run a 140-section rear tyre, the other being the Yamaha R3.

The Pulsar NS400Z’s headlight is a very unique thing with a central LED projector headlight flanked by two very edgy lightning bolt-shaped DRLs. The tank extensions are also quite sharp and the NS400Z’s overall design is very edgy.

The riding aids on the Pulsar NS400Z comprise 4 riding modes (Sport, Road, Rain Offroad), 3 levels of traction control and switchable dual-channel ABS (only in the Off-road riding mode). All these rider aids are controlled through a colour LCD dash, which has largely the same layout as the smaller air-cooled Pulsar models except for the little screen on the right hand side which shows you navigation data, allows you to to control music playback and even has a lap timer. Switchgear too is brand new for the NS400Z and it also gets adjustable brake and clutch levers. 

The Pulsar NS400Z can be had in 4 colours and all are priced the same at Rs 1.85 lakh, although the company has not revealed when this introductory offer will end. At its introductory asking price, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable way to access the exciting world of 40hp performance. Bookings are open for a token amount of Rs 5,000 across all Bajaj showrooms and on the companies website. Deliveries are slated to begin in the first week of June for the Pulsar NS400Z.

All prices ex-showroom, Delhi.
