The 125M suffers from body vibrations to a certain extent, but the overall ride comfort is decent for a commuter bike. Suspension includes telescopic forks at the front and gas-charged shock-absorbers at the back that can handle bumpy roads without upsetting the rider. As for handling, the bike is light and nimble and makes it through safely when thrown into a corner, but it doesn’t feel sure-footed when leaned.
The base variant of the 125M comes with drum brakes on both the wheels and its on-road Pune price is Rs 54,744 while the optional front disc brake costs Rs 2,200 more. Bajaj have perfectly squeezed the 125M into the little gap below the 125T in terms of performance and price. To be honest, the marginal difference in performance doesn’t really matter given that these are commuter bikes, but the slightly better fuel efficiency and lower price do make the 125M a value-for-money option in the segment.
