Bajaj Pulsar 125 to get a new split seat variant
Bajaj Auto is working to introduce a new split seat variant of the Pulsar 125 motorcycle. The new model will come with a bunch of design tweaks including a split seat design and contrasting decals while retaining the mechanics of recently launched Pulsar 125 Neon. Meanwhile, the motorcycle has reached some dealerships and select dealers are also accepting unofficial bookings for the upcoming bike.
Here's a look at the upcoming Pulsar
The new variant of the Pulsar 125 will come with extended fairings around the fuel tank, split seats as well as split grab rails, and blacked out alloy wheels. The motorcycle will also get Red contrasted decals on the rim, front guard, and around the engine. Further, it will sport a digital-analog instrument console, halogen headlamps as well as turn indicators, and LED taillight.
Power and performance
Just like the Pulsar 125 Neon, the upcoming model will be powered by a BSIV-compliant 125cc air-cooled engine which churns out 12PS of power at 8,500rpm and 11Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. For transmission duties, the motorcycle will get a five-speed manual gearbox.
What about safety and suspension setup?
On the safety front, the new Pulsar 125 will come equipped with disc brakes on the front, drum brakes on the rear, along with single-channel ABS to avoid skidding while braking. Further, the motorcycle will house telescopic fork suspension on the front along with dual-shock absorbers on the back to handle the suspension duties.
And, what about pricing?
There is no official word about the pricing of upcoming Pulsar 125 at the moment. However, considering the cosmetic upgrades, we expect it to carry a little premium over the Pulsar 125 Neon which is priced at Rs. 66,618.
