Bajaj Auto enters the commuter-centric segment with the Pulsar 125
With the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon, the Pulsar motorcycles now range from 125 to RS200. Prices start at Rs. 64,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
If you've ever come across the Pulsar 150 Neon – or any of the Pulsar derivate for that matter – the Pulsar 125 feels right at home. In fact, it's very easy to mistake either of these bikes for one another. They both have the same design, dimensions, brakes, tyres, and equipment. Even the bright neon accents – barring the 125 moniker – are exactly similar to its elder sibling. And even though the design is a little long in the tooth, some elements like the chunky headlamp, muscular stance and fatter rubbers are a welcome change for the 125cc segment. Now, if you look closely, the bikemaker has also reduced the fuel tank capacity by shaping it a little narrower than the 150. As a result, the kerb weight automatically reduces by about 3 kilos.
Built on the same architecture, the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon borrows its motor from the Pulsar 150, albeit with a shorter stroke (50.5mm instead of 60.7mm) but identical bore (56mm). As a result, the engine has a cubic capacity of 124.4cc. This tweaked motor is capable of churning out 11.8bhp and 11Nm of torque, which makes it the most powerful bike – barring the super expensive KTM 125 Duke – in the segment.
