It has been known for some time now that Bajaj is planning to launch a new 125 cc bike in the market under the Pulsar brand. Now, the bike has been spied up close sans any camouflage revealing several details about the motorcycle. According to a report by BikeDekho, Bajaj will launch the Pulsar 125 later this month and the bike will also probably have neon colour variants as seen on the bigger 150 cc Pulsar. The bike you see here might seem to be the BSVI version of the Pulsar 150 but according to the report, it is the Pulsar 125 being tested before its launch without anybody announcing that it’s a 125 cc bike.
As seen in these spy shots, the design of the motorcycle is almost identical to the bigger Pulsar 150 in all aspects. This is in contrary to a few claims made before saying that the styling of the bike will be inspired by the now discontinued Pulsar 135. This could give a boost to the bike in terms of sales as the muscular design of the Pulsar 150 will make the 125 cc bike look much bigger and meaner than the competition. The Neon colour scheme will further help the case and the Pulsar logo on the fuel tank and he pillion grab rail could get bright neon shades if Bajaj decides to launch the colour scheme on the Pulsar 125.
As of now, there are no details out regarding the mechanical aspects of the Bajaj Pulsar 125. A few reports, though, were found saying that the Pulsar 125 will have similar engine specifications as the Pulsar 135. Therefore, the single-cylinder, air-cooled engine on the Pulsar 125 could have a power output of around 13.5 Bhp along with 12 Nm of peak torque. The engine will be paired with a five-speed gearbox. The bigger Pulsar 150 gets powered by a 149.5 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that churns out 13.8 Bhp of power at 8,000 rpm and 13.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. Also, the 125 cc model will get a carburettor system but fuel injection will be added to it before the BSVI norms kick in.
Like the recently launched Bajaj Platina H-Gear, the Pulsar 125 is likely to feature the CBS safety tech that will keep prices in check. Braking duties will be done by a disc brake at the front and a drum unit at the back. Shock absorption units will comprise of conventional front forks and gas-charged twin-sided springs at the rear. When launched the Pulsar 125 will take on other popular 125 cc models in the premium category. As of now, there is no word upon the pricing of the bike by Bajaj but expect it to cost approximately around Rs. 61,000, ex-showroom.
