Though Pulsar 125 tends to be the smallest member in the Pulsar era, Bajaj enhanced it with design and features similar to the Pulsar 150. Both, Pular 125 and 150 have many similarities. So, it’s harder to differentiate the two if kept side by side.
The only visible difference between the two includes the difference in stickers.
The sporty Clip-On handlebars, neon colour, and neon graphics give the motorcycle a peppy look. The bike gets a wolf-eyed halogen headlamp with twin pilot lamps.
In addition to the above features, Pulsar 125 includes:
- Position lamps
- An LED tail lamp
- A semi-digital console
- An engine kill switch
- Backlit switchgear
Though the bike’s standard trim has a single-piece seat, it comes in a split-seat variant. The split-seat variant includes split grab rails and an engine cowl.
To meet the need of mass Bajaj Pulsar comes in six colours in India, namely:
- Solar Red
- Platinum Silver
- Neon Blue
- Black red
- Neon green
- Black Silver
The four variants of Pulsar 125 includes:
- Pulsar 125 Neon Drum CBS BS6
- Pulsar 125 Neon Split Seat Frum CBS BS6
- Pulsar 125 Neon Disc BS6
- Pulsar 125 Neon Split Seat BS6
As the name suggests, the most prevailing aspect of Pulsar 125 includes the 125cc engine. The 124.4cc motor gets the same bore (56.0mm) as Pulsar 150, but the stroke is shorter (50.5mm).
The 4-stroke, 2-valve, and Twin Spark BS6 compliant DTS-i engine give the necessary power to the bike.
The Pulsar 125’s engine behaved very much similar to Pulsar 150 except for the lower top-end performance.
In Pulsar 125, the power delivery gets linear, and at higher revs- the engine gets largely unstressed (which gets common in the bikes of this segment).
The 124.4cc engine develops a power of 11.8bhp and a torque of 10.8 Nm. The Pulsar 125 has a fuel tank capacity of 11.5 litres (the largest fuel tank in its segment). The motorcycle gives a mileage of 51.46kmpl (city).
Pulsar 125, the most powerful of its class, comes with the patented DTS-i technology giving it a power of 11.8 PS and torque of 10.8 Nm. The combination gives an unmatched pick up to the motorcycle.
When it comes to comfort, Bajaj didn’t compromise for it. The smooth suspension and contoured seat give comfort and an upright seating position.
The telescopic front forks with anti-friction bushes, and 5-step adjustable Nitrox rear shock absorbers, enhances the features of Pulsar 125, making a perfect ride for the city or on the highway.
Pulsar 125 entails 240 mm ventilated front disc brakes to ensure quicker and safer braking. The bike offers great day-night visibility. The anti-skid braking technology provides an ultra-safe braking experience regardless of the surface.
1320 mm wheelbase and tubeless tyres with a frame enrich the bike to provide better strength and stability.
Transmission duties of the motorcycle get handled by a five-speed gearbox. Getting underpinned by a single down tube chassis, the bike rides on 17-inch allow wheels at both ends. The wheels get suspended by telescopic forks and dual shock absorbers.
The braking system of Pulsar 125 includes a drum at both ends and entails a front disc as an option. At the front, the bikes give you an option of a 240 disc or a 170mm drum, while at the rear, you have constant 130mm drum brakes. All variants of Pulsar 125 have CBS as a standard.
