The newly launched Bajaj Pulsar NS125 borrows its styling cues from the Pulsar 135 LS but is powered by a newly developed 125cc, single cylinder engine
While we are still waiting for the replacement for the Pulsar 135 LS in India, Bajaj has launched the Pulsar NS125 with CBS in Columbia after launching it in Poland last year. The Bajaj Pulsar NS125 that was launched in Columbia recently is powered by a new 125 cc, single-cylinder, 4-valve air-cooled, DTS-i engine.
The newly developed 125cc unit paired with a 5-speed gearbox produces about 11.8 hp of peak power at 8,500 rpm 10.8 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm. Nothing much has changed in terms of styling though, the Pulsar NS125 looks identical to the Pulsar 135 LS. The front profile gets a sharp halogen headlamp design and a small flyscreen positioned on top of it.
The motorcycle borrows its semi-digital instrument cluster from the 135 LS which is surrounded by a faux carbon-fibre texture that helps in adding a sporty appeal. The tachometer is available in the analog format while the rest of the information is available on the digital display unit. Besides the instrument cluster, the fuel tank and the rear panels are also identical to the Pulsar 135 LS as well.
The motorcycle gets split seats while the tank shrouds help add a muscular stance. The motorcycle also features a split grab rail bar which can also be found on the Pulsar 135 LS as well. The Pulsar NS125 also gets an additional engine cowl as well which is not available in the 135 LS though. Lastly, it also features a new dual tone paint finish that adds a premium appeal to the motorcycle.
The motorcycle uses a conventional telescopic fork at the front and twin sided nitrox shock absorbers at the rear. The braking duties are handled by a 240 mm single disc brake at the front and a 130mm drum brake at the rear. The motorcycle also features a combi-braking system for the safety of the rider. The Bajaj Pulsar NS125 is priced at 4,699,000 Colombian pesos (around Rs. 97,245).
