Bajaj Pulsar 125 BS6 Specifications:
Talking about its mechanical department, the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon is powered by a 124.4 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces 11.8 bhp of peak power at 8,500 rpm and 11 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm, identical to its previous BS4 compliant version. The new fuel-injected power-plant comes mated to a 5-speed transmission which sends power to the rear wheel. Now the engine comes equipped with Fuel injection (FI) systems instead of a carburetor.
Bajaj Pulsar 125 BS6 Features:
Apart from the updated BS6-compliant engine, the motorcycle remains unchanged in terms of styling and design. The new BS6-iteration of the Bajaj Pulsar 125 continues to feature the same equipment as its BS4-iteration. The bike features a comfortable single-piece seat, black alloy wheels with neon streaks, wolf-eyed halogen headlight with two pilot lamps, a semi-digital instrument cluster, dual-LED taillights, muscular fuel tank and Neon coloured Pulsar logo and rear pillion grab rail.
Suspension duties are handled by the conventional telescopic forks up front and gas-charged dual shock absorbers at the rear. Braking duties are performed by either a single 240 mm disc or a 170 mm drum brake at the front and a 130 mm drum brake at the rear. There’s also the CBS (combined braking system) for enhanced braking performance.
Dimensionally, the BS6-bound Pulsar 125 measures at 2,055 mm in length, 755 mm in width, 1,060 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 1,320 mm. Despite the above-mentioned changes in the engine, the kerb weight – 140kg – stays the same as before.
In the Indian lucrative market, the new BS6-bound Pulsar 125 will compete against the KTM Duke 125, KTM RC 125, Honda SP 125, and Hero Glamour i3S among other commuter level offerings as well.
