Bajaj Pulsar 125: Bajaj Auto is all set to release the small edition of Pulsar as they are readily struggling with the construction of a latest Pulsar 125. It will be the most smaller Pulsar manufactured till now. Previously, the company has stopped the production of Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS in India. It was also removed from the official website. However. the company made it clear that the production Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS is not stopped and will be available globally, except some countries. According to the latest vehicle safety norm, every motorcycle featuring 125cc and higher engine displacement should have ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) system. The mandatory norm has hit from April this year so, the upcoming vehicles should be manufactured as per the rules. Whereas, the bikes sporting less than 125cc displacement should be equipped with CBS.
Without any doubt, the price of the 125cc and higher engine motorbikes will be increased. It seems that Bajaj Auto will also be affected by the latest norm. The Pulsar 135 LS is one of the most affordable bikes along with a top-specs variant tag so, the company will think about the price. The increased price could result in sales drop as the Pulsar 135 LS will also have to feature ABS system. The same rule will be accomplished for the upcoming bikes which are expected to hit the road by 2019.
When it comes to Bajaj Pulsar 125, the company has decided to offer the same 124.5cc engine which was powered in Discover 125. So, the company will not make other powerful engines for the smaller model. The price of the 2019 variant will be affordable as it doesn’t have to feature ABS norm. As told earlier, all the bikes less than the 125cc engine will be featuring CBS which comes at an affordable price compared to ABS. The Pulsar 125 will b equipped with a 124.6cc, 4-valve, twin-spark, air-cooled engine which will produce 13 hp of max power at 9,000 rpm and 10.8 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm. The power figures of the Pulsar 135 LS is 13.5 hp and 11.4 Nm of torque, which are not extremely higher than Pulsar 125.
Bajaj Auto has not disclosed all the details of the smallest upcoming Pulsar. The engine spec of the bike is average so, the overall design will decide that its worth purchasing or not. The bike is expected to come in a naked-style version. As said earlier, it will hit the road by 2019. The latest bike will be competing with the tough rivals in the market such as the Honda CB Shine SP and the Hero Glamour 125.
