Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon was recently launched for Rs 66,600 (ex-showroom), as the most affordable Pulsar. It was offered with the Matte Grey-Neon paint job, just like the scenario with Pulsar 150 and 180F.
Bajaj has now launched the regular variant of the Pulsar 125, which gets glossy dual-tone colours with decals over the body. It is priced at Rs 70,618 (ex-showroom Hyderabad) and will be only available in Andhra Pradesh and North Eastern States.
The regular Pulsar 125 comes with an engine cowl and split seats. The Neon edition gets a single step-up seat onboard. It is available in two colour options – Black with Red Graphics and Black with Blue Graphics.
Our dealership sources have suggested that they will start receiving the bikes soon and the bookings are open for amounts ranging between Rs 1000-5000. The deliveries are expected to commence in a week or two.
The engine specifications remain the same, with a 125cc air-cooled engine delivering 12 BHP and 11 Nm of peak torque, mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine is taken from the Discover 125, with some mild engine tuning.
For suspension, it continues with telescopic forks at the front and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the back. Bajaj offers drum brakes at both the ends as standard, with an option of a front disc brake, paired with Combi-Braking System (CBS).
The features on board remain the same, with a semi-digital instrument console, clip-on handlebars, pilot lamps, split grab rails and CBS as standard. The styling remains the same as of the Pulsar 150 Single Disc variant.
Bajaj is planning to upgrade its entire Pulsar lineup by early 2020 with BS-6 engines. The Pulsar 180 has already been discontinued temporarily, but all the other bikes will be upgraded.
