Following the second wave of the health crisis, two-wheeler manufacturers across the board have been increasing the prices of their models citing rising input costs and other factors, and Bajaj Auto is no different. The Chakan-based company introduced the Pulsar NS125 in April 2021 and is currently the entry-level NS offering in the domestic market.

Within four months of its launch, Bajaj has announced a price hike for the NS 125 and resultantly it becomes Rs. 4,416 dearer. The new price has come into effect from the starting of this month. It is priced at Rs. 99,296 (ex-showroom, Faridabad). One of the key selling points with the NS125 is its affordable nature.

Courtesy of the increase in price, it is currently Rs. 1,037 dearer than the Pulsar 150 Neon ABS. The Bajaj Pulsar NS125 derives styling from its bigger brothers, the NS160 and NS200 and is retailed in four colour schemes namely Burnt Red, Saffire Blue, Pewter Grey and Fiery Orange. As for the performance, it is equipped with the same 124.45 cc engine from the Pulsar 125.
