The new Bajaj Pulsar 125 split seat variant has been launched in India starting at Rs 79,091 (ex-showroom).
The Bajaj Pulsar 125 has become a very popular model since its launch in India and is also the most affordable motorcycle offered by Bajaj in the Pulsar range. The bike was recently spotted at a few dealerships sporting a split-seat setup and has finally been launched for the Indian market.
As the name suggests, the main difference in this variant compared to the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon is the use of a new split seat and many design and styling cues taken from the Bajaj Pulsar 150. This includes the use of an underbelly-cowl, split grab rails at the rear and the use of panels extending from the 15-litre fuel-tank to give it a more sporty look. The Pulsar 125 split seat will get three colour options on offer – Neon Green (on Matte Black), Black Silver and Black Red.
The engine used in this variant will be a BS6-compliant, 124.4-cc, single-cylinder, DTS-i twin-spark engine that produces 11.8 hp at 8,500 rpm and a peak torque of 10.8 Nm at 6,500 rpm mated to a five-speed gearbox.
Commenting on the launch, Sarang Kanade, President, Bajaj Auto said, “We are excited to bring out a new Pulsar 125-cc variant offering. Pulsar 125 launched in August last year, soon became one of the fastest growing Pulsar variants with more than 1 lac bikes sold within 1st 6 months of launch. The new Pulsar 125 Split Seat will attract premium commuter segment customers who have always wanted to buy a sporty motorcycle with outstanding performance, style, and thrill at an amazing price point. While the last few months have been testing times for both the industries and consumers alike, we hope the new Pulsar 125 Split Seat variant will re-ignite consumer interests and receive an equal amount of love, admiration and acceptance such as that of the Pulsar 125.”
Currently, the Pulsar 125 Neon is priced starting at Rs 70,995 (ex-showroom) and this indicates a premium of around Rs 8,000 for the BS6 Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat variant.
