The Pulsar NS 125 launched in Poland comes with the same design theme as earlier 135 model
Bajaj officially introduced the Pulsar NS 125 in Poland and it will be the same model coming to India as a replacement for the Pulsar 135 LS. The company want to make the Pulsar brand more accessible to people and the new 125 cc variant will lower the entry-level price point considerably when compared to current models.
The government has also made it mandatory that all motorcycles above 125 cc must come with ABS system as standard and if they want to continue sales of Pulsar 135 LS, then the company need to update the model with ABS, which will increase price and makes it out of reach for many of the prospective customers.
So the company decided to introduce the Pulsar 125 LS and it will come with Combi-Braking System (CBS), which is much cheaper compared to ABS. But the Pulsar 135 LS will continue in production as it is one of the popular export models. The entry-level Pulsar model will carry forward the same design theme of its 135 siblings.
The Pulsar NS 125 launched in Poland comes with dual tone paint finish, which we have seen in other Pulsar NS models. We can expect the India spec model to come with a minor nip and tuck on the body along with some new colour options to give a fresh feel for the customers.
The instrument cluster continues to be the analogue and digital combination with a blue backlight display. Bajaj has also updated the graphics on the tachometer and the NS 125 is 4 kgs heavier than the 135. The company has also increased fuel capacity from 8 litres on 135 to 10.5 litres on Pulsar 125, which might be the reason for increased kerb weight.
The Pulsar NS 125 is powered by 124.45 cc air-cooled engine producing 12 PS of power and 11 Nm of torque when compared to the 135 model power decreased by 1.05 PS and torque by 0.4 Nm. This engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. We can expect the launch to take place early next year and the company will price the model aggressively.
