Bajaj Auto Limited is a world renowned Indian three-wheeler and two-wheeler manufacturing company with its headquarters in Pune, India and is a part of Bajaj Group. It was founded in the 1930s by Jamnalal Bajaj in Rajasthan and became the world's largest three-wheeler and second largest motorcycle manufacturer. It has its plants in Waluj near Aurangabad, Chakan in Pune and Pantnagar in Uttarakhand and the oldest one at Akurdi (Pune) which has now become a R&D center. Bajaj has also acquired a large number of shares in Austrian company, KTM Power Sports AG, thus started a joint venture in November 2007.
Recently, Bajaj Auto Limited has surprised everyone by unveiling two models which will soon be a part of their line-up, the naked cruiser Pulsar CS400 and the sports bike Pulsar SS400 on February 5, 2014. Both of these were also on display at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. While, Pulsar CS400 will be launched next year, Pulsar SS400 will be making its way to the market in the second half of this year. Both the bikes are the perfect blend of sportiness, style, aggressiveness, technology, performance and speed and have attracted everyone's interest due to their stunning design and a powerful 373.2cc engine from KTM 390 Duke which may get a little tweaked for better figures. Let's check Pulsar CS400 in detail.
