Bajaj dealers have begun selling a new higher-spec variant of the Pulsar 125 at Rs 70,618. While the company hasn’t yet officially announced the new model, its official launch is expected to come soon. The higher-spec variant costs Rs 4,000 more than the Pulsar 125 Neon that only made its debut back in August 2019.
The biggest change on the new variant is the split seat that comes in place of the single-seat unit. Other visual changes include tank shrouds and a belly pan, both of which the 125 Neon misses out on. This version of the Pulsar 125 also features a regular chrome-finished tank badge and not the neon-coloured one like on the 125 Neon. The centre panel on this variant also features a carbon-fibre finish and the graphics all over are different.
Bajaj has done something similar with the Pulsar 150 range, where the 150 Neon misses out on additional bodywork, just like the 125 Neon, and the more-expensive 150 model features it. However, the price difference between the 150 Neon and the more-expensive Pulsar 150 is a lot larger (Rs 13,760).
It is expected to be powered same 124.4cc, single-cylinder, two-valve air-cooled engine that makes a peak power of 12hp at 8,500rpm and 11Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Click here to read our review of the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon.
