Bajaj Pulsar NS125 was launched in Poland last year. Reportedly, the smallest Pulsar is going to make a debut in India by the end of 2019.
In 2018, Bajaj Auto discontinued the smallest model in the series, Pulsar 135 LS. It was discontinued because of declining sales and is now available for export markets only.
Last year, Bajaj Pulsar NS125 was launched in Poland. It looks very similar to 135 LS, copying the sharp and compact styling. Now, it is reportedly launching in India by the end of 2019.
Pulsar NS125 could fill the space that 135 LS left in the Indian market. A 125cc Pulsar would be considered a good buy owing to the sporty design with a even more fuel efficient engine.
The NS125 uses a 124.6cc air-cooled DTS-i engine, that is capable of producing 12 BHP at 8500 RPM and 11 Nm of peak torque at 6000 RPM. The motor comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The engine will get fuel injected engine as an update for the BS-6 emission norms. For suspension purposes, the bike comes mated to telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the back.
Since it is a 125cc motorcycle, Bajaj Pulsar NS125 will be equipped in India with CBS. In this case, 135 LS would have been costlier to upgrade to ABS. Combined Braking System is comparatively cheaper.
Features onboard include split seats, a semi-digital instrument console that comes on other Pulsar, sharp tank shrouds, CBS and a small tinted visor. The NS character lines can be very well seen here.
In India, we can expect a price of Rs 60,000 (ex-showroom). Do keep in mind that the most affordable Pulsar 150 Neon is priced at Rs 67,000. In order to keep the competition intact, Bajaj needs to undercut the prices of Pulsar NS125.
NS125 will actually face no strong competition in the 125cc segment, because all of the models are commuters. Still, it will go against Hero Glamour 125 and Honda Shine.
