The Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split-Seat has arrived at dealerships. The motorcycle will be positioned higher than the Pulsar 125 Neon and has a few subtle differences. The motorcycle might cost around Rs 3,000 more than the Neon variant.
Bajaj Auto made headlines last month when it launched the Pulsar 125 Neon. The least powerful motorcycle in the Bajaj Pulsar range didn't exactly appeal to enthusiasts, but it did appeal to those wanting to have a Pulsar, with budget restraints. That was in-fact the purpose of launching the Pulsar 125.
The Pulsar 125 Neon was launched on 14 August, 2019 at a starting price of Rs 64,000 (ex-showroom). It immediately became more affordable since there was no necessity to have ABS because it had an engine capacity of under 125cc.
Now, Bajaj plans to add yet another variant to the Pulsar 125 line-up. Images from Dino's Vault give us a closer look at the new variant in the Bajaj Pulsar 125 line-up. The changes on this variant is just aesthetic in nature. The overall design of the motorcycle too remains the same.
Up front, we still get the familiar Pulsar face, with a reflector headlamp and pilot lamps. The fuel tank still comes with the sharp, angular cowling. The biggest change in design comes through the addition of cowling at the bottom of the engine.
At the rear, we still get the ever-so familiar LED tail lamps, but this variant gets the stylish split grab rails compared to the single-piece grab rail on the Pulsar 125 Neon. The biggest change to the styling comes in the form of new, attractive graphics.
The graphics can be seen on the front mudguard, the tank, the engine cowling, tail lamp cowl and the wheels as well. Yet another change comes in the form of a split seat while the Neon variant makes do with a single-piece seat.
As stated earlier, the Pulsar 125 split seat variant features the same mechanicals as the Neon variant launched last month. The motorcycle measures 2055mm in length, 765mm in width and has a wheelbase of 1323mm. It weighs in at 139 kilograms.
It is powered by an air-cooled, 125cc, single-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 11.8bhp and a peak torque output of 11Nm. The rear wheel is driven by a 5-speed gearbox. Suspension duties are handled by a telescopic fork up front and twin gas charged shock absorbers at the rear.
Braking is taken care of by a 240mm disc up front and a 130mm drum at the rear. It comes with a combined braking system as safety regulations require it to be so.
Thoughts On Pulsar 125 Split Seat Variant With Sporty Graphics Launching Soon
The Pulsar brand is one that changed the Indian motorcycle scene nearly two decades ago. Competition in the market has certainly increased over the years. However, the Pulsar brand still commands certain respect and people still aspire to own a Pulsar.
The new variant of the Pulsar 125 will be for those who cannot afford a Pulsar 150 but still want one at a lower price. With this new variant, they will be able to get the same styling and design but with lower performance and prices.
