The split seat variant of the BS6 Bajaj Pulsar 125 is Rs 3,597 more expensive than the single seat variant and has been priced at Rs 79,091 (ex-showroom). It is hands down one of the most sporty looking affordable commuters around.
Bajaj Auto has launched the split seat variant of their entry-level BS6 Pulsar 125 motorcycle in India today. The BS6 Bajaj Pulsar 125 split seat variant is now available in India for a price of Rs 79,091 (ex-showroom, Delhi). This split seat variant comes with front disc brakes as standard and it is Rs 3,597 more expensive than the single-seat disc brake variant of the Pulsar 125. It is also Rs 8,096 more expensive than the single-seat drum brake variant of the Pulsar 125.
This split seat variant of the BS6 Bajaj Pulsar 125 also comes with some other additional cosmetic features. This includes a sporty looking belly pan and a split grab rail instead of the one piece grab rail seen on the regular model. Although quite minimal, they still help the Pulsar 125 look a lot more sportier. The new Bajaj Pulsar 125 split seat variant will be available in three color options – Neon Green (on Matte Black), Black and Silver and Black and Red colour options.
Commenting on the launch, Sarang Kanade, President, Bajaj Auto said, “We are excited to bring out a new Pulsar 125cc variant offering. Pulsar 125 launched in August last year, soon became one of the fastest-growing Pulsar variants with more than 1 lakh bikes sold within first 6 months of launch. The new Pulsar 125 Split Seat will attract premium commuter segment customers who have always wanted to buy a sporty motorcycle with outstanding performance, style, and thrill at an amazing price point. While the last few months have been testing times for both the industries and consumers alike, we hope the new Pulsar 125 Split Seat variant will re-ignite consumer interests and receive an equal amount of love, admiration and acceptance such as that of the Pulsar 125.”
Although the Pulsar still carries on with a design that is more 10 years old, it is still one of the sportiest looking commuters around. The wolf-eyed headlamp cluster with twin pilot lamps still look sharp and mean and the infinity twin-strip LED tail lamps at the rear will always remain the Pulsar’s signature. The motorcycle also gets 3D logos on the tank and rear cowl, clip on handle bars, and matching neon highlights on the black alloy wheels depending on the colour you choose.
The BS6 Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split seat variant is powered by the same 125cc DTS-i engine that makes 11.6bhp and 10.8Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. In terms of underpinning, the Pulsar 125 uses 31mm telescopic forks at the front with twin gas shock absorbers at the rear. There’s a single 240mm disc up front and 130mm drum brake at the rear. The motorcycle rides on 17-inch wheels shod with 80/100 section tire at the front and 100/90 section rubber at the rear. The motorcycle however weighs 142 kg, making it the heaviest in its segment.
