The affordable performance bike to satisfy your needs does a splendid job as an everyday commuter. The suspension of the bike offers a plush ride. Adding to it, both rider and pillion seats give comfortability while riding.

Bajaj Pulsar 125, sensible addition to the existing Pulsar motorcycles, comes in various engine displacements. Though it entails an engine displacement of 124cc, its stylish features make it a perfect roadster bike.

The premium positioning and brand distinction of the bike add to its sale. In addition to it, four distinct variants of the Pulsar 125 come with unique features.

New Pulsar 125 provides more comfortability, and all the variants have some worthy upgrades in the engine. The inclusion of the BS6 engine makes it match the industry standards, regulations and stand up to the competition.

When you have a strict budget, Bajaj Pulsar 125 gives an upgrade to your motorcycle.

What’s new In the latest Model?

  • When it comes to changes, the new entry-level Pulsar 125 split seat gets- a drum brake up front with CBS instead of a front disc brake. So, it became convenient for the manufacturers to sell the bike at a handy price.
  • The Pulsar 125 Split seat disc brake variant costs relatively more than the split seat but is affordable than the disc brake version. So, it can be a convenient option for people with a strict budget.
  • The Split Seat version also got a split grab rail, belly plan, split seat, and contrast red or silver accents on a black base.
  • Along with giving more comfort, the bike comes with some worthy upgrades in the engine. So, to go hand in hand with the industry standards and regulation, the prime change was the inclusion of BS6.
  • Coming to looks, though Bajaj Pulsar 125 without bothering for the demand of time remained unchanged, yet the use of vibrant colour and split seats enhances its looks.

    The Neon detailing on the bike appeals to many youths. But, Pulsar 150 has already come with the neon detailing, so it’s neither new.

    Even when it comes to switchgear and semi-digital instrument console, it’s also from Pulsar 150. So, both the bikes look dated but still give a good impression in the segment.

Expert Reviews

  • Meeting the zeal of youths, Pulsar 125 gets to be the most affordable version in the Bajaj Pulsar’s family. Bajaj made it very clear that 125 is not a commuter bike, but it stays true to Pulsar’s experience in the commuter segment.

  • You should not get fooled by the prefix ‘125’. The new Pulsar 125’ powerplant generates 11.8PS power and 10.8 Nm Torque (not so less than Pulsar 150).

  • Pillion seats provide enough comfortability, and the suspension offers a plush ride.

  • Pulsar 125 weighs 140kg (almost 15kg heavy than its nearest competitor). Bajaj still managed not to compromise the handling or low-speed manoeuvrability. So, the bike gets successful in becoming one of the very easy-to-ride bikes.

  • The front disc-equipped variant gets the better brakes when compared to other models in the same segment. The Euro-grip tyres do not give much confidence to the corners.

  • Compared to KTM 125 Duke (costs nearly double Pulsar 125), Pulsar 125 accomplishes what it set out to do at an affordable price. Pulsar 125 not only gets the most powerful in its segment, but it’s also perhaps the sportiest.

  • Though the bike comes economical, Bajaj has not skimped on the cycle parts. Whether suspension setup, braking hardware, wheels or the looks, get carried over from the Pulsar 150. So, in simple terms, you get Bajaj Pulsar 150 at an affordable price.

  • Talking about looks, Pulsar 125 and 150 get so similar that it’s hard to differentiate the two bikes. The sticker on both the model is what makes the difference between them.

  • Focusing on performance, the Pulsar 125 gets quick, peppy along with a typical Pulsar exhaust note. But, it’s not the swiftest bike in its segment and among its competitors.

    The chunky tyres look cool, but they increase the strain on the engine with higher rolling resistance. So, the baby Pulsar isn’t the quickest.

    Pulsar 125 has a quick-revving engine in terms of feel and swiftness. Pulsar 125 also includes a fun element that makes it above its competitors.

  • The 5-speed gearbox is enough to meet the needs. But, shifting from first to second can get notchy. Pulsar gives an enjoyable ride at 80kph at around 6,500rpm, but above it, you feel strained with minor vibes on the seats, footpegs, and handlebars.

  • Despite the high kerb weight, it’s easy to steer Pulsar 125 in traffic, but it isn’t as agile as its lighter competitors. The ride quality of Pulsar 125 feel supple at city speeds and manages well the speed breakers and bad roads in an effortless manner. The rear gets a bit firm on sharp bumps.
