Introduction of Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon

Bajaj is an expert at creating genres and even using those that already exist to their advantage. A good example is the brand-new Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon.

A more powerful engine than the competition, a less expensive pricing than products from other manufacturers in the sector, and a recognisable larger motorcycle style. These accurately describe the new Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon.
It should be noted that Bajaj has made previous attempts to dominate this market, albeit with limited success. Will their most recent attempt to enter the growing 125cc market succeed?

The Pulsar 125 Neon is the model in the Pulsar lineup with the lowest price. The bike’s main feature is that it looks just like the Pulsar 150. As a result, owners of the Pulsar 125 Neon receive the aesthetics of the more expensive Pulsar at a lesser price.

A 124.4cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine coupled to five-speed gearbox power the Pulsar 125 Neon. The engine can produce 12 horsepower and 11 nm of torque, respectively.

In short, the bike looks like the perfect new-age ride for comfortable city and highway rides.

What’s new in Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon?

Although this design has been around for a while, the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon shares many similarities with the Bajaj Pulsar 150 Neon, which is not necessarily a negative since it is still a beautiful motorbike.

The 125 Neon has a smaller gasoline tank than the 150 Neon, which is the sole distinction between the two motorbikes. Additionally, because it is the new Neon model, the motorbike also features several striking highlights.

Although the Pulsar Neon 125’s kerb weight has decreased by 4 kilogrammes due to its smaller fuel tank, it still weighs more than any other motorbike in its class by at least 15 kilos.

Contrary to one may anticipate, Bajaj did not make any compromises to keep the bike’s pricing competitive. The Pulsar 125’s build quality has a new feature that puts it above the rest of its competitors.

Highlights of Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon

Design of Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon

The Pulsar brand has completely transformed the Indian two-wheeler sector. The Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon is introduced to appeal to the same customers who adore the classic style and intimidating appearance of the original Pulsar.

Compared to the majority of 125cc bikes in the nation, which are pretty plain-looking, it has a bigger, more aggressive, and hence more imposing appearance. The side panel mesh, Pulsar logo, and pillion grab rail are all colour-coordinated.

The front headlight of the bike is a conventional halogen unit, while the rear light is an LED. The dual-LED taillamps ensure the design is balanced and doesn’t appear overly threatening despite the aggressive appearance.

Colour and variants of Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon

The Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon is available in 12 colours:

  • Neon Green
  • Neon Silver
  • Solar Red
  • Neon Silver
  • Solar Red
  • Neon Silver
  • Solar Red, etc.

The Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon is available in two variants

  • Drum
  • Disc

These versions of the 125 Neon are offered, with each trim coming with either a basic single seat or a sportier split-seat option.

Engine of Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon

The Bajaj Pulsar NS125’s 160.3cc engine is a scaled-down version of the NS160’s. Hence you receive a brand-new 124.45cc, air-cooled, 2-valve SOHC engine that produces 11Nm at 7000 rpm and 12PS at 8500 rpm. It has a 5-speed gearbox built in.

The conventional perimeter frame used on all Pulsar NS models houses this new motor. The monoshock appears to have come from the NS160, while the thin telescopic fork, narrow tyres, and brake components appear to have been taken directly from the standard Pulsar 125.

Features of Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon

Contrary to popular belief, Bajaj made no concessions to maintain the bike’s affordability. The only visual differences between the Pulsar 125 and Pulsar 150 are the badging and coloured accents on the motorcycles.

The semi-digital cluster appears a little old, with just two trip metres, an odometer, and a few warning lights transmitted back to the rider.

For an upscale touch, Bajaj gave the Pulsar 125 illuminated switches.

The more costly Split Seat model includes a split-seat arrangement, split pillion grab rails, and an engine cowl.

The LED tail light and halogen headlight are nearly identical to those on the NS160 and NS200.

Brakes and transmission of Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon

The 125 Neon have dual gas-charged rear shocks and a traditional telescopic front fork on a double-cradle frame.

At the front, you may choose between a 240mm disc and a 170mm drum brake; the 130mm drum brake is unaffected. All variations have CBS as standard.

Expert Reviews for Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon

  • The only significant changes between the new Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon and its predecessor are the neon detailing and the absence of a belly pan or tank shrouds. The new Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon has remained intact and unaffected by the passage of time.

  • The engine is identical to that used in the 150s, but Bajaj decreased its cubic capacity to just under 125 by reducing the stroke, which went from 60.7mm to 50.5mm.

  • The 125 will excel as a daily commuter because of the suspension’s soft ride and the comfort of the rider and pillion seats.

Conclusion

The Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon succeeds in achieving its goals. It is the most powerful bike in the 125cc market and may even be the most sporty, except the KTM 125 Duke, which costs almost twice as much. However, Bajaj has once again outperformed the competition with pricing comparable to competitors like the Honda CB Shine SP or the Hero Glamour.

In the end, the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon makes sense for someone searching for a bike in the commuter market that is less ordinary and gives an experience that keeps loyal to the Pulsar legacy, even if it is done in a more subdued and cheap way.
