About Pulsar 125
The Pulsar is one of the long-running series by Chakan-based bike maker Bajaj Auto. The range begins with the Pulsar 150 and goes up to the Pulsar 220F in terms of displacement. Now, it seems the manufacturer witnessed a growing demand in the 125cc and, hence, is reportedly working on a 125cc derivative of the Pulsar. Besides that, with the introduction of the Pulsar 125, the Pulsar brand will be more accessible to buyers in the market.
The move to introduce a 125cc model can also be partly attributed to the mandatory inclusion of ABS for motorcycles above 125cc and also the impending BS-VI norms. Both factors have resulted in a rise in the overall cost of motorcycles, across brands, thus impacting sales figures.
The company hasn’t yet disclosed any details of the motorcycle but it is expected to be powered by a 125cc air-cooled mill derived from the Discover 125. In the latter, the motor registers a max power output of 11bhp and a peak torque of 11Nm. Transmission duties will be handled by a five-speed gearbox.
