    Bajaj NS 400 : A Power-Packed Performer 

    The Bajaj NS 400 has been my daily companion for the past six months and it is quite the powerhouse. The bike's 400cc triple spark, 4 valve engine delivers a robust 44 horsepower and 35 Nm of torque, which means acceleration is brisk and there’s plenty of power on tap for overtaking and high speed cruising.Handling is another high point for the NS 400, thanks to its lightweight frame and responsive suspension setup. The bike feels agile and easy to maneuver, whether on busy city roads or open highways.

    Will be a high performer bike 

    There is no need to introduction of Bajaj NS which is a brillant bike in all the engine capacity and obivously 399 cc engine will hit in the market because the 200 cc engine also very great and high performer. It will come as a affordable 400 cc bike that will give us a very nice design and style and will come with full digital console and all LED lights and will come with the dual channel ABS. I feel it will be a high performer bike and the expected price is around 2 lakh.

    We are crazy about Ns. We 

    We are crazy about ns.We had expectations from the new model to have a good design.Lucky this look design is very bad.We expect bajaj to bring out another model of ns 400 which looks like the old ns.I was waiting for thin ns 400 for the last 2 years, Did it get upgraded soon? but now seeing such a bad model i would prefer to go to another company i hope the new model vibration comes out soon which is even better than the old ns we are waiting for.

    Overall The bike riding experience 

    Overall the bike riding experience in every mode is best ever in this segment i have driven dominar 400 and pulsar rs 300 but this bike duke390 is powerful naked beast and comfortable for the long rides as well better than rc390 i have also driven that but rc doesn't suits me although it is very good in segment.Duke has a little more vibration than rc 390 best thing about it is the pickup of bike in the starting gears and good accessories such as tft display and sporty lamps and indicators& look but these type have very less value after use duke 390 goes crazy on the ride mode.The power to the weight ratio is good but suits on the fit guy.
