Bajaj Auto will expand its range of 125cc Pulsar engines. The current 125cc Pulsar range includes the OG Pulsar 125 (which this is set to replace) and the Pulsar NS125. The latest entry in this highly competitive segment will be Bajaj after its rivals. The launch has to be soon because the test mules have no camouflage. Expect this motorcycle to get P150 design elements all around.
The 125cc Pulsars are the most popular. The sales charts reflect the same, with the Pulsar 125cc being Bajaj’s bestseller with 35% of the company’s total sales in September 2023. The launch is expected to happen soon and will be positioned between the OG Pulsar 125 and Pulsar NS125. The price around Rs. 90,000 (ex-sh) would be the case.
The first set of spy photos shows a silhouette similar to that of the Pulsar P150. This test mule shows no camouflage. We can bet that none of the body panels and components of the Pulsar P series will be changed. It has a attractive LED headlight with large projector and signature single-over LED daytime running lights, extended fuel tank covers, clip-on handlebars, engine cover, one-piece seat, conventional grab handle and a semi-digital instrument cluster. It also has a USB port, and two LED tail lights are only some of the most notable features.
Component-wise, the upcoming 2024 Bajaj Pulsar 125 will feature a telescopic fork at the front, a single-disc with single-channel ABS, a rear drum brake, a conventional box swing arm and similar 17-inch alloy wheels as the P150. The same single-cylinder engine with a displacement of 124 cm3. The engine will develop a maximum power of around 11 HP and a maximum torque of 11 Nm, mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Fuel consumption should be class leading, which will be around 50 km/l! The main competitors are TVS Raider 125, Honda SP 125 and Hero’s Glamour.
