Pulsar 125 price difference with other Pulsars in the range is the main reason of its existence. It comes equipped with CBS.
New Bajaj Pulsar 125 dons the exact same look of the Pulsar 150 Neon and Bajaj has announced its official launch through a press release moments back. The smallest Pulsar has also started reaching dealerships. This 125 segmenter is now available for bookings & quick view at many Bajaj dealers.
The bike features conventional headlamp, clip-on handlebar, semi-digital speedometer, single piece seat and black alloy wheels. It also has primary kick which will allow riders to start the motorcycle in any gear by pressing the clutch.
It comes with the 124.4 cc engine which can churn out 12 PS of peak power at 8500 rpm and 11 Nm of max torque at 6500 rpm. It has been paired with a 5 speed gearbox.
The motorcycle also gets front disk and rear drum brakes and this is where the big change and the basis of existence of Pulsar 125 lies. This baby Pulsar comes equipped with CBS (Combined Braking System) in place of ABS (Antilock Braking System) of Pulsar 150. Indian government has set the baseline for ABS motorcycles as 125 cc. Any motorcycle or scooter under this displacement need not be equipped with ABS.
And since CBS is a simpler technology, it is a lot cheaper than ABS which means that Bajaj can pass on the benefit to the end customer and still remain competent. Pulsar 125 also comes with a counter-balancer which will reduce vibrations at higher revs.

The motorcycle is being offered in three colours – Neon Blue (on Matte Black body), Solar Red and Platinum Silver. Since there has been no mention anywhere, we are assuming that the new Pulsar 125 remains a BSIV compliant motorcycle for now.
Will the Pulsar nameplate in the ‘commuter’ segment earn Bajaj good sales or will it end up diluting the brand remains to be seen…
