Rumour: Bajaj Pulsar 125 to be launched in the coming months
According to media reports, Bajaj is likely to launch a 125cc version of the Pulsar in the coming months. The NS 125 that is sold in international markets was expected to be offered in India, however that does not seem to be the case.
It is believed that Bajaj may have taken the decision to introduce a smaller capacity Pulsar, since 150cc bikes have become more expensive in recent times. The rise in prices can be attributed to safety regulations that mandate ABS on these bikes. On the other hand, 125cc bikes are only required to have combined braking systems, which are comparatively less expensive. Besides, prices are expected to go up further once the BS-VI regulations come into effect.
Reports suggest that the Pulsar 125 might look similar to the Pulsar 150 Neon and could get a single seat instead of a split seat design. It is expected to be powered by a 125cc engine similar to the one on the NS 125, which is a 124.45cc, single-cylinder unit that puts out 11.8 BHP and 10.7 Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
