Indian two-wheeler manufacturer Bajaj Auto, recently launched a new 125 cc motorcycle in the market. It is known as the NS125 and is a smaller capacity version of NS200 and NS160 motorcycle that is available on sale in the market. The new motorcycle is actually priced at Rs 93,960, ex-showroom. This is being sold as a premium 125-cc motorcycle and the price is nearly 20,000-25,000 more expensive than the regular Pulsar 125. The bike has now started reaching dealerships and here we have a video that shows how Pulsar NS125 actually sounds like.
The video has been uploaded by Biker Prakash Choudhary on his YouTube channel. The vlogger starts by showing how the bike looks from outside and then starts the vehicle to show how the bike actually sounds. As mentioned above, the Bajaj Pulsar NS125 is actually a smaller version of the NS200 and NS160. In terms of design, there is no difference. It looks similar to the much more powerful NS200 motorcycle.
The vlogger even shows the instrument cluster and switch gear in the video and even that looks similar to the original NS200 motorcycle. It gets an analog tachometer and a digital speedometer that shows many other details too. The vlogger turn on the bike using the key. Just like NS160 and NS200, the NS125 also gets an under belly exhaust and it sounds like a regular 125 cc motorcycle. It not as grunty as the Pulsar Ns200 or NS160. The video then shows how the motorcycle looks.
Apart from the KTM Duke 125, Bajaj Pulsar 125 is the only motorcycle in the segment to get a mono shock suspension at the rear. The all-new Bajaj Pulsar NS125 comes in four different shades. There is Beach Blue, Fiery Orange, Burnt Red and Pewter Grey shades on offer. The bike uses a 17 inch alloy wheel both at the front ad rear. The all-new Bajaj Pulsar NS125 can actually be seen as an alternative for those who want to buy the KTM 125 but, find it too expensive. With the launch of NS125, Pulsar range now has a total of 10 models.
Coming to the engine and gearbox on Pulsar NS125, it is powered by the same 124.4 cc, singe cylinder, air cooled engine as regular Pulsar 125. The only difference is that, it now generates 12 Ps which is slightly more than the regular Pulsar 125. The engine generates 11 Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Braking duties on this motorcycle are done by a 240 mm disc at the front and 130 mm drum brake at rear. The bike has a ground clearance of 179 mm and a seat height of 805 mm.
The Pulsar NS125 does not come with an option to have a rear disc even as an option. Bajaj is also not offering ABS with the Pulsar NS125. Kerb weight of Pulsar NS125 is 144 kgs which is 7 kilos lighter than the NS160 but, it is 4 kilograms heavier than the regular Pulsar 125. Bajaj Pulsar NS125 gets a 12 litre fuel tank and it also gets the split seat that we have seen in other NS models.
