Bajaj Auto is gearing up to launch its first-ever CNG powered motorcycle in India on July 5th. In a recent teaser video, Bajaj revealed a key feature: a blue toggle switch located on the left-side switch cube. This switch will enable riders to seamlessly switch between petrol and CNG modes.

The upcoming bike, as seen in spy shots, boasts a circular LED headlight, bulb indicators, and a sleek tail-lamp. It also features new 5-spoke alloy wheels, and a long single-piece seat.

Recently, spy shots captured the upcoming Bajaj CNG bike, concealed under heavy camouflage, alongside the Bajaj Platina 110. One of the distinctive features spotted was a horizontally positioned CNG cylinder located beneath its long, flat seat. Images from the spy shots also revealed a significant gap on the fuel tank, indicating it’s designed for accessing the valve of the CNG cylinder. This design suggests a focus on integrating CNG technology while maintaining practicality and accessibility for riders.

Anticipation is high for the new Bajaj CNG bike, which is hoped to feature a 125cc engine to match the performance of 110cc petrol bike, given that CNG engines typically deliver less power. This new model will offer an eco-friendly alternative without direct competition, yet it will stand alongside popular choices like TVS Radeon, Bajaj Platina 110, Honda Shine 100, and Hero Splendor Plus.

Recently, Bajaj Auto has introduced its latest addition to the Pulsar line-up with the launch of NS400Z in India, boasting an introductory price of Rs 1.85 lakh (ex-showroom). This powerful naked street bike offers enthusiasts a choice of four striking colors: Glossy Racing Red, Pewter Grey, Metallic Pearl White, and Brooklyn Black.

At the core of the powerful Pulsar model beats the same 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine found in Bajaj Dominar 400 and the KTM RC 390. This engine pumps out 39.4bhp and 35Nm of torque, matched with a 6-speed gearbox featuring a slip-and-assist clutch. The top speed of the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is 154km/h and weighing around 174 kg with a 12-litre fuel tank.
