Pulsar NS125 Launched in Poland. Reports say India Launch Could Happen Soon As Well
Bajaj has 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 also believe that the new Pulsar 125 will soon replace 135 LS in the Indian market. 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 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.
Pulsar 125 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 NS 125 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.
Bajaj NS 125 employ 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 to 17″ alloys. Bajaj has offered three colors on Pulsar 125: Blue-Black, Red-Black, and Full Black.
