Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon has been spotted in a dealership and bookings of the same are now open
Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon was seen inside a dealership which makes it clear that the company has started dispatching sports commuter bikes to the dealers. The company has officially launched the Pulsar 125 Neon drum brake variant for Rs 64,000. Disc brake variant is priced at Rs 66,618. Prices are ex-showroom Delhi.
On the launch Sarang Kanade, President, Bajaj Auto said. “We are excited to bring out the Pulsar in the 125cc variant. The new Pulsar 125 Neon will open up a new segment targeting the premium commuters who have always wanted to buy a sporty motorcycle with outstanding performance, style, and thrill at an amazing price point.”
The Pulsar 125 which was spotted in the dealership sported matte grey color with Neon Blue details and stripes. The motorcycle looks complete copy of elder brother Pulsar 150 without tank extensions. There is a single seat rather than the split ones to keep the price lower. Handlebars are clip-ons to keep the image of the bike as sporty as possible.
If you ask what is the difference between Pulsar 150 Neon and Pulsar 125, I would say, ‘Only the Engine is different’. This platform sharing helps Bajaj to keep the prices highly competitive. The price which is Rs 66,600 is about Rs 4500 less than the Pulsar 150 Neon, whose price was hiked to Rs 71,000 ex-showroom. We made it clear that Pulsar 150 Neon’s steep price hike was to create a gap for this Pulsar 125.

Powering the new Pulsar 125 is a 124.38cc single-cylinder engine with 2-valve head. This engine develops 12bhp at 8500rpm and about 11Nm torque at 6500rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Speaking about the suspension and brakes, there are telescopic forks at the front and twin spring-loaded shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is done via front disc brake and rear drum brake. There is no ABS as bike falls under 125cc category so CBS comes as standard. The instrument cluster is the same old analog-digital unit which debuted in Pulsar range in 2006.
At last, I would like to say that new Pulsar 125 will definitely disrupt the premium commuter motorcycle segment because Indians love Pulsars. Until now, Parents were afraid to get their kid a Pulsar because they were associated will power and speed. But now, Parents can happily buy their young kids a Pulsar as it has a smaller engine.
Just wait and watch, now Honda Shine will also see a slight decline in sales. Discover is now as good as dead. Now those who are looking forward to a 110-125cc bike will jump for Pulsar 125, and that’s for sure.
