It gets exciting colour options of Neon Blue (on Matte Black body), Solar Red and Platinum Silver and is capable of power packed performance.
On board features include a colour coordinated Pulsar logo and grab rail, a 3D logo on its rear cowl, neon colour streak on black allows and clip on handlebars. It receives a single seat design unlike the split seat setup seen on the larger Pulsars and a semi-digital instrument cluster. Fitted with Counter Balance allows for less vibrations even at higher speeds.
Standing 2,055mm in length, 755mm in width and 790mm in height, the Pulsar 125 Neon gets a wheelbase of 1,320mm, ground clearance of 165mm and kerb weight of 140 kgs along with a fuel tank of 11.5 liters. It sits on 17” wheels fitted with 80/100 tyre in the front and 100/90 tyre at the rear.
Engine specifications include a 124.4 cc DTS-I, air cooled, single cylinder, four stroke engine offering 12 hp power at 8,500 rpm and 11 Nm torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine gets mated to a 5 speed gearbox with primary kick allowing the rider to start the bike in any gear by depressing the clutch.
It gets 240mm disc brake in the front and 130 mm drum brake at the rear and receives Combined Braking System as a standard safety feature which is mandatory for all bikes of 125cc capacity. This CBS system allows for a more affordable pricing as compared to the cost of a more expensive ABS unit.
Bajaj Pulsar 125 will compete with the Honda CB Shine SP and the Hero Glamour in its segment. Will the new bike help Bajaj increase sales?
