Bajaj Pulsar 125 with split seats and tank shrouds priced at Rs 4000 more
In August, Bajaj finally launched a Pulsar in the premium commuter segment, the Pulsar 125 Neon. Now a premium version of Pulsar 125 is reaching dealerships and launch is imminent. This new variant is priced at Rs 70,618 ex-showroom. This was the main reason why Bajaj hiked the price of Pulsar 150 Neon by Rs 4000 to create space for the new bike.
The Pulsar 125 Neon, on the other hand, is priced at Rs 64,000 for the drum brake variant and Rs 66,600 for the Disc brake variant. The Neon paint scheme was inspired by the more affordable version of the Pulsar 150 Neon.
The Pulsar 125 Classic looks more premium with the added features. Main visual cues of the bike are split seats, tank shrouds, and engine belly pan. Pulsar 125 will now come with gloss paint with striking colored graphics coupled with chrome pulsar logo on the fuel tank.
Powering the Pulsar 125 is the same 124.4cc 2-valve unit which does the job on Pulsar 125 Neon. This powerplant makes 12bhp at 8500rpm and 11Nm 6500rpm twisting force. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox and we expect the bike to have a true 100 kmph top speed.
Speaking about the rivals, the main rival to the Bajaj Pulsar 125 is the premium variant of Honda CB Shine SP which is priced at Rs 68,900 ex-showroom Delhi. Anyone looking for a sporty premium commuter motorcycle can now have the taste of Pulsar 125 Classic.
