The new variant gets split seat, making the Pulsar 125 more aggressive. It is only available with the disc brake variant and is priced at Rs 75,462. It is about Rs 3,600 more expensive than the single-piece seat version of the bike. It also gets a host of new features.
The other cosmetic changes that differentiate the split-seat version of the Pulsar 125 compared to the regular single-piece seat version of the bike. The Pulsar 125 gets changes like split grab rails and an under-engine belly pan that makes it look muscular.
