Bajaj Auto is working on an onslaught of new generation of Pulsars that will find their underpinnings being borrowed from the all-new Pulsar 250s. The most powerful Pulsars not only debuted with a bigger engine but also a chassis that will make it to other motorcycles in the Pulsar portfolio. And now, spy shots have emerged of the next generation Bajaj Pulsar 125 being on test in Pune. The big update on the new Pulsar 125 will be the new styling that appears to be more flamboyant than the current model. The test mule also appears to be in the finishing stages and the overall quality levels appear to be quite good.
The cosmetics of the new 125 and 150 of the same platform as the 250 and 160 motorcycles are going to be different. The upcoming new Bajaj Pulsar 125 is likely to carry a derivative of the new Pulsar 250’s frame and swingarm. The hardware also gets noticeable changes such as smaller forks, brakes wheels, and tires. The chassis and the swingarm are the two things that will taken from the 250/160 motorcycles.
The test mule also gets a single-piece seat instead of split units seen on the Pulsar 250s. Bajaj is likely to retain the heel-shifter on the next-gen Pulsar 125 that also makes an appearance on this test mule, along with the chain cover. Power will come from a 125cc motor that will be air-cooled making around 13 PS of power and 13 Nm of torque from 2-valve DTSi engine.
There’s no word on when the new Pulsar 125 will arrive but the model appears nearly production-ready and could arrive in the second half of the year. The bike maker is certainly planning a busy year and we can’t wait to see what more is in store for the Pulsar clan.
