The Bajaj Pulsar 125 has started reaching dealerships across the country; launched in the drum as well as in disc brake variants

The automotive industry might be going through one of the worst slowdowns in its history in India, but when it comes to the ever-green Pulsar series of motorcycles, they have been managing to take the punch quite sportingly. So much that the entry-level Bajaj Pulsar 150 is still managing to sell over 60,000 units a month, making it the most popular Pulsar out there right now!

So it is no surprise that Bajaj would want to come out with a smaller capacity version of the Pulsar series of motorcycles, especially given the tendency with which Bajaj launches and discontinues motorcycles, for India. As a result, the new motorcycle launched from Bajaj’s stable is the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon. Priced at Rs. 64,000 for drum brake variant and Rs. 66,618 for disc brake variant (ex-showroom), the Pulsar 125 is now the most affordable Pulsar you can buy in India.

The Pulsar 125 Neon is available in three colours choices namely Neon Blue with matte black body, Solar Red and Platinum Silver. It tips the weighing scale at 140 kilograms and sits in a mass market space where the volumes are coming in thick and fast. It also comes as a result of the new safety standards mandating CBS for all bikes of 125 cc capacity and above.

And the motorcycles having engine capacity of 150 cc and above should stick with ABS. The engine in the Pulsar 125 will eventually be updated to meet BSVI emission regulations coming into effect from April 2020 onwards. Bajaj is exploring a lot with the Pulsar brand name by utilising its popularity and the Pulsar 125 could turn out to be a success.
