About Pulsar 125

Bajaj Pulsar 125 is a commuter bike available at a starting price of Rs. 76,503 in India. It is available in 4 variants and 6 colours with top variant price starting from Rs. 85,672. The Bajaj Pulsar 125 is powered by 124.4cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 11.64 bhp and a torque of 10.8 Nm. With both front and rear drum brakes, Bajaj Pulsar 125 comes up with combined braking system of both wheels. This Pulsar 125 bike weighs 140 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 11.5 liters.

The Pulsar 125 is the most affordable Pulsar one can buy in India. It is also one of the most sought after motorcycles in the segment, thanks to the usage of brand Pulsar. Bajaj believes there’s a market for a sporty 125 cc in the country. In fact, it also believed that fuel efficiency isn’t a big deal in this segment.

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Colours & Design
The Pulsar 125 is available in three colours - blue, silver and red. Despite being a 125 cc offering, it boasts a design and features identical to the Pulsar 150 that has been a huge success for the Chakan-based brand for years. The Pulsar 150 has mainly been popular for its muscular styling and boisterous appeal. The usage of matt as well as some gloss paint has made the Pulsar 125 quite enticing to look at.

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Mileage and Performance
The Pulsar 125 returned a city fuel efficiency of 42 kmpl which is decent for a bike this size. Powering the smallest Pulsar is a 124.4 cc, air-cooled, DTSI engine that produces 11.64 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 10.8 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. Transmission duties are handled by a five-speed gearbox. The power delivery is quite linear which makes it quite accessible. Plus, there's a good amount of low and mid torque that aids in city riding.

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Specifications and Features
The Pulsar 125 is built on a single down tube chassis, it rides on 17-inch alloy wheels at both ends that are suspended by telescopic forks and dual shock absorbers. Braking is handled by a drum at both ends while a front disc is also available as an option. The Pulsar 125 tips the scale at 140 kgs.

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Alternatives
The Pulsar 125 goes against the Honda SP 125 and the Hero Glamour. However, when it comes to after sales service, the Pulsar 125 is one of the most affordable ones.

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • The 125cc motor has good low and mid-range
    • Decent riding position
    • Cheap to maintain
  • Could be Better

    • Lack of modern features
    • Still has the crude engine sound

BikeWale's Take

The Pulsar 125 is the most affordable Pulsar one can buy in India. It has a bit of sporty nature, and with class leading performance, it makes it a good product. Plus, it’s quite easy to ride it on city traffic as well. However, the design is too old now, and due to lack of modern features, the Pulsar 125 isn’t very exciting. 

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Review

The Pulsar 125. It looks exactly like the Pulsar 150 Neon because, well, Bajaj hasn’t bothered changing anything in terms of design or even a single body panel. But it has a smaller engine, a 125cc single cylinder air-cooled unit. 

Introduction

The Pulsar 125. It looks exactly like the Pulsar 150 Neon because, well, Bajaj hasn’t bothered changing anything in terms of design or even a single body panel. But it has a smaller engine, a 125cc single cylinder air-cooled unit. 

Now, I know what you might be thinking - this is just the Discover 125 in Pulsar clothing, right? Wrong. This is, in fact, the Pulsar 150 for all means and purposes down to the engine, but with a shorter stroke.

So, it weighs almost the same as the 150. And it uses the same chassis, the same wheelbase, the same brakes and the same tyres as the 150 as well. In that sense then, the 125 is a proper Pulsar.

But, does it have the same boisterousness, the same enthusiasm, and the same raw charm that Pulsars have been known for? 

Well, it’s time to find out...

The Visuals

There’s no doubting the fact that for a 125, the Pulsar has good road presence. The bulbous tank, the large bikini fairing, and its overall length help give it that. Now, the design is more than just old in the tooth. But then, there’s nothing else that’s cutting edge in terms of design in the 125cc class, in any case. And for what it’s worth, the Pulsar 125 does have good proportions. 

The Package

Let’s get the engine details out of the way first. Like we said earlier, this new 125cc engine uses a shorter stroke than the Pulsar 150 but has a similar bore. Which should make it more rev happy. And it comes with the typical Bajaj engine jargon including DTS-i and ExhausTEC.

The power and torque figures are naturally down compared to the 150, but excluding the expensive and tech packed 125 Duke, the Pulsar 125 is, in fact, the most powerful, the most torquey motorcycle in its class. It makes almost 12bhp and an exact 11Nm of peak torque. But, the good thing is these figures aren’t delivered at an extraordinarily high rpm. And that should make the bike usable. 

In terms of cycle parts, the chassis is a double cradle unit suspended in telescopic front forks and twin gas charges dampers at the rear. 

Features wise, there’s nothing really new here. Like the Pulsars of yore, there’s backlit switchgear, a part-analog-part-digital display, an engine kill switch, and some neon highlights. And as mandated, there’s CBS or combined braking system as well.

The Ride

The first thing that strikes you as good on the 125 is the seating triangle. Neutral set footpegs, high clip-on for a handlebar, and a seat height that’s under 800mm, which makes it easily accessible.

As far as engine goes, this two-valve unit might sound gruff - like most Pulsar engines do - but it doesn’t transmit any of that gruffness in terms of vibes on the bike. Even on the redline, the tank is almost vibe free. And though you can feel some vibes via the seat, handle bar, and the footpegs, these aren’t high enough to call the bike vibey. The five-speed gearbox though, is a little clunky for our liking. 

Performance wise, the Pulsar 125 has decent low and mid range performance. For a 125, it doesn’t struggle anywhere in the rpm band. It pulls cleanly, it takes on inclines without a bother, and if you take it out on the highway, it will comfortably do 80-90kmph without a fuss.

Now, the Pulsar 125 won’t win any awards for its ride and handling prowess, but it is an easy bike to manoeuvre in the city. It feels light and agile, and easy to park. 

The setup works adequately over almost any surface. We won’t term the ride plush, but it isnt jarring either. And the seat cushioning helps take the edge off when one hits severe potholes. 

Handling again, is par for the course. It’s not exactly very involving or exciting, but it is safe. So, the 125 doesn’t set any new benchmarks, but it is also hard to fault with. 

If anything, we would have liked more bite and feel from the 240mm single disc upfront.

Conclusion

The Pulsar 125 is priced at a little over Rs 66,000 ex-showroom. Now compared to the highest selling 125cc motorcycle in the segment, the Honda CB Shine, that’s a premium of Rs 3,000. 

For this extra money, you get 150cc styling, more power and more torque. Now feature wise neither bike really makes a mark, but for those looking at better highway manners, a bigger bike feel, and aren’t completely consumed by fuel efficiency, the Pulsar 125 is certainly worth a look in. 

In case you are interested, the ARAI figure for the Pulsar 125 is 57kmpl, and the same for the Shine is 64kmpl.
