UPDATE: Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon review, test ride
It has been less than a month since Bajaj launched the Pulsar 125 Neon, and there already appears to be a new version making its way to dealerships. This new version, which will most likely be called Pulsar 125, appears to be a higher-specced model with a number of visual differences.
The biggest change on the new variant is the split seat that comes in place of the single seat. 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 quite substantial (Rs 13,760) and we don’t expect the 125 models to be priced that far apart.
The new Pulsar 125 is expected to be powered by the 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.
