Pulsar NS125 CBS Launch in Poland was done last year. India launch will happen very soon says a source within Bajaj to us
Bajaj had launched the Pulsar NS 125 in Poland to get hold of the popular 125 cc segment in the two-wheeler segment and launched it in Poland at Rs 1.58 lakh (PLS 7,999). The introduction is aligned with the popularity of the 125cc segment in the international markets. Until now, the Pulsar 135 LS was the entry-level bike but now with NS 125 joining forces, Bajaj is hoping to make big in Poland.
We now know that the new Pulsar 125 will replace 135 LS in the Indian market in the form of Pulsar NS125 CBS. The new Indian safety norms on vehicles mandate the motorcycle with more than 125 cc engine to offer ABS as a standard part of the equipment. This would have certainly inflate the price of 135 and it may end up with a retail price close to the 150cc model. The sub-125cc segment, on the other hand, doesn’t require the costly ABS and can easily make do with a cost-effective Combi-braking system which the Pulsar NS125 CBS is.
Pulsar NS125 CBS is based on the design of 135 though it gets dual-tone graphics. However, the most important difference is in the cubic capacity which is rated at 124.45 cc. This single-cylinder air-cooled DTS-i motor in Pulsar NS125 CBS makes 12PS and 11Nm, and comes with a 5-speed transmission. 125 is identical to 135 in dimensions but in weight, it is heavier by 4kg. This could be because of a larger 10.5-liter fuel tank compared to 135’s 8-litre and addition of CBS.
Pulsar NS125 CBS employs telescopic fork and twin shock absorber at the front and rear respectively. A 240 mm disc and 130 mm drum brakes provide the stopping power via 17″ alloys. Bajaj has offered three colors on Pulsar 125: Blue-Black, Red-Black, and Full Black. India spec is still unknown when it comes cosmetic design or mechanical changes, which are expected to make this more value and performance oriented.
