This upcoming larger capacity Pulsar will share its basic, four-stroke and single-cylinder engine platform with the KTM 390 Duke, so expect a full complement of close to 45 aggressive horses, with ample modern technology packed in, including a liquid-cooling system, four-valve equipped head and a six-speed, close-ratio gearbox, apart from an array of other goodies. Final drive will be via an exposed chain running back down the left of the motorcycle, and expect a compact, sporty exhaust system. The big Pulsar’s engine will be tailored to suit its new role and having recently ridden and experienced the 390 firsthand, you can expect a refined, rev happy powerplant that will deliver blistering performance for the class, with urgent acceleration and a top speed in excess of 150kph.
