Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon Latest Updates

There’s a new baby Pulsar NS in town. Say hello to the 2021 Bajaj Pulsar NS125 that looks like a scaled-down version of the Pulsar NS160. This new Pulsar comes in at Rs 93,690 (ex-showroom Delhi), making it nearly Rs 13,000 dearer than the top-spec Pulsar 125. If you want to know more about this baby Pulsar, check out this story.

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon Price

At Rs 73,363 for the standard drum variant, the Pulsar 125 is the most-affordable Pulsar that you can buy in the country. It also gets a split-seat version that costs Rs 76,045. Both of these prices are Rs 1,747 more than their March 2021 price tags. You get disc options in both of these trims as well, the new prices for which are yet to be shared but expect them to carry the same premium.

Pulsar 125 Neon Specifications

Powering the Bajaj Pulsar NS125 is a downsized version of the NS160’s 160.3cc engine. You get a brand new 124.45cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, 2-valve SOHC unit that makes 12PS at 8500rpm and 11Nm at 7000rpm. It comes mated to a 5-speed transmission. This new motor is housed in the traditional perimeter frame found on all Pulsar NS models. It seems that the slim telescopic fork, skinny tyres, and braking hardware have been lifted straight off the regular Pulsar 125, while the monoshock sourced from the NS160.

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon Variants

The Pulsar 125 Neon is available in both drum and disc variants, with each trim arriving in a standard single seat or a sportier split-seat option. Prices for the Pulsar 125 now start at Rs 73,363 (ex-showroom Delhi).

Pulsar 125 Neon Design

The Bajaj Pulsar NS125 follows the same design ethos as its other NS siblings. The same wolf-inspired headlamp, muscular tank, chunky body, and split-seat setup make their way into the NS125. However, blame it on the skinny tyres and a slim telescopic fork, the proportions of the bike do not seem quite right.

Pulsar 125 Neon Features

Features on the Bajaj Pulsar NS125 are scanty. There’s no LED headlight or a full-digital dash. Even the semi-digital console misses out on the range indicator and gear position indicator. The halogen headlight and LED tail light are pretty much identical to the NS160 and NS200.

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon Competitors

The Bajaj Pulsar NS125 is a sportier and more youthful alternative to the regular Pulsar 125. In the 125cc space, it is dearer than the Hero Glamour 125, BS6 Honda Shine, and Honda SP125. However, while these are primarily commuter-centric, the Pulsar NS125 is meant to be a performance-oriented learner’s bike. And in that sense, it is a lot more affordable than the more powerful and highly sophisticated KTM 125 Duke and RC 125, which are currently priced upwards of Rs 1.50 lakh.

Editor's View of Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon

  • Upside

    The matte black shade with blue highlights really is a head-turner, Features clip-on handlebars, a first in its segment, The plastic quality feels top-notch.

  • Downside

    The cushioning in the seat feels a little hard, Engine feels a little strained at high speeds, Price is a little on the higher side

  • Our Verdict

    The Pulsar 125 Neon gives enthusiasts a taste of the Pulsar’s sporty DNA but in a less intimidating and more affordable package. However, its lower-than-its-class fuel-efficiency may not appeal to the more conservative 125cc buyers -- from that aspect, the Glamour and CB Shine SP are still better bets.


Pulsar 125 Neon Detailed Review

Accessibility! Now, this is a word which has been popular over the past few years. From premium smartphones to luxury cars every brand wants to make their products more accessible and thereby increase sales. Bajaj too have done the same by making the Pulsar brand easier to access by riding in the new Pulsar 125 Neon.

Another reason for launching the new bike is that the introduction of the new ABS norms for bikes above 125cc capacity have made them more expensive. Understandably it’s the most affordable Pulsar that you can buy, but has Bajaj gone too far in milking the Pulsar brand or are we in for a surprise?

New beginnings

The most interesting aspect of the Bajaj Pulsar 125 as its name suggests is its new 125cc engine. The 124.4cc motor is based on the Pulsar 150’s powerplant and has the same bore but the stroke is shorter. In terms of numbers, the baby Pulsar is the second most powerful 125cc bike on sale in India after the KTM 125 duo and it isn’t too far off from the Pulsar 150 which produces 14PS and 13Nm.

Specs

Engine 124.4cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled
Power 12PS @ 8500rpm
Torque 11Nm @ 6500rpm
Gearbox 5-speed

In terms of performance, the Pulsar 125 does feel quick, peppy and that typical Pulsar exhaust note adds to the drama. But, there’s one problem, it isn’t the quickest 125cc bike out there. And no, I am not talking about the KTM 125 duo. In our performance test, the Glamour managed to out accelerate it and now that's something we never saw coming for a Pulsar! But I must mention that the engine is quick revving and in terms of feel, the Pulsar does feel swift and has a fun element something that its rivals don’t offer.


Acceleration

8.20 seconds

40-80kmph in 4th gear 11.33sec NA 9.57sec

And if that wasn’t enough, even in the roll-ons (40-80kmph) the Pulsar is slower. Surprised? Let me explain, the Pulsar 125 shares its underpinnings with larger displacement Pulsars and this has resulted in a high kerb weight of 140kg. In fact, the Pulsar 125 is the heaviest 125cc bike on sale and that too by a significant margin.


Kerb weight

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon Honda CB Shine SP Hero Glamour Fi
140kg 123kg 125kg

And while the chunky tyres do look cool, they also increase the strain on the engine by offering higher rolling resistance. So on paper, it leads the charge, but in the real world, the baby Pulsar isn’t the quickest.

Front 80/100 - 17
Rear 100/90 - 17

Fuel efficiency

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon Honda CB Shine SP
City 51.5kmpl 62kmpl
Highway 57kmpl 65kmpl

One aspect of the motor that impressed us is the refinement and that can be credited to the counter balancer. At city speeds NVH levels of the new offering are among the best among all Pulsars on sale.The 5-speed gearbox is up to the task, however shifting from 1st to 2nd sometimes can be notchy and the heel-n-toe shifter looks very commuterish on a Pulsar. The Pulsar 125 feels comfortable cruising at 80kph at around 6,000rpm, but once you go above it, the engine starts feeling strained and one can feel minor vibes on the seat, footpegs and handlebars. Talking about fuel efficiency, the Pulsar 125 returned us 57kmpl on the highway and 51.5kmpl in the city. Compared to its traditional 125cc rivals, the figures are slightly low. However, the baby Pulsar does have a slightly larger tank capacity than its competitors at 11.5 litres.


On the move

The Pulsar 125 is the only 125cc bike on sale to get clip-on handlebars. However, the bars are raised and the footpegs are centre-set, which means the riding position is upright and comfortable. Seat height of the Pulsar 125 is low at 790mm and it’s accessible for most riders, but, the seat cushion is on the stiffer side.

Suspension

Front Telescopic fork
Rear Twin shock absorber

The chassis, suspension and the tyres on the new bike have been carried forward from the Pulsar 150 Neon. Despite its high kerb weight, it feels easy to steer in traffic, however it isn’t as agile as its lighter rivals. And show the bike some fast sweeping corners and it faces it rather well, but push a bit hard and the tyres start feeling nervous. Suspension setup consists of telescopic fork and twin shock absorbers. Ride quality feels supple at city speeds and the bike manages speed breakers and bad roads in an effortless manner. But on sharp bumps, the rear does feel a bit firm.

The Pulsar 125 gets disc brake as an option and in our opinion the Rs 2,600 premium is well worth it given the better braking performance. The disc brake offers good bite, but the lever action is slightly soft. This has been done as most commuter owners are used to drum brakes and this will aid them in modulating the disc brake in a better manner. Also, the CBS unit works well in avoiding the rear tyre from sliding. In our braking test, the Pulsar 125 took slightly more stopping distance and this can be due to the soft lever action and the TVS rubber which isn’t the grippiest tyre available.

Brakes

Front 240mm disc / 170mm drum
Rear 130mm drum
Braking Test
80-0kmph 34.51m
60-0kmph 18.81m

The Pulsar Look

In terms of styling the baby Pulsar looks the same as the Pulsar 150 Neon and that isn’t a bad thing. Despite being present for over a decade, the Pulsar styling is still appealing and by 125cc standards the Pulsar 125 does make a statement. It’s also available with two gloss paint options, but our pick is the matte shade as it makes the bike look sportier.

Talking about features, the bike gets a semi-digital instrument cluster with a large tachometer and digital display for speed, fuel gauge, trip meter and odometer. It gets a standard halogen headlight, while the taillight is an LED unit. Fit and finish levels are acceptable for a bike of this segment and the Pulsar 125 is also the only bike in its category to get backlit switches.

Standout features

  • Backlit switches
  • Clip-on handlebar
  • LED tail light

Final call


As a 125cc bike, the baby Pulsar does impress with its performance, styling, fuel efficiency and features. And being a Bajaj, the Pulsar 125 offers good value as well. While it does have the Pulsar feel, there’s one problem and that’s the Pulsar 150 Neon.

Price (ex-showroom)

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon (disc) Bajaj Pulsar 150 Neon Honda CB Shine SP
Rs 66,618 Rs 71,200 Rs 68,938

You see for a premium of Rs 4,500 what you get is more power, better performance and not to forget the safety of a single-channel ABS. If fuel efficiency is your main priority, then the Pulsar 125 makes more sense. But, do you really want a Pulsar purely for fuel efficiency?

    I brought PULSAR 125cc drum single seat black n silver variant onroad at 90k hyd. Exshowroom price was 73k. I exchanged my 2016 model bajaj Platina 100c at 25k.Pros:Nice design and looks,Comfortable seating position,Handle is also nice,Head light and tail light is awesome,Speedometer is digital having nice features like rpm and side stand indicator,BS6,Combi braking system,Tubeless tyre,Back tyre is wider and has good turning grip,Cons:Engine heat,Engine sound,Gear shifting is not upto the mark,Logo and other accessories quality is not that good,Speedometer should have gear indicator,Headlight by default is always on and no option to turn it off, i think this is due to BS6 requirements but still this is bad for battery life.

    After running 3000+ kms I can say that it was a good call to buy pulsar 125 over other 125 bikes. In Kolkata my total cost price was 82k(on road) back in January 2020. A very good power on the highway as well as in the city. Average speed is 50kmph and above 70 not much shivers.. even at 80kmph with a pillion my bike was stable. another thing is wheel base.. rear wheel base is as same as pulsar 150 and it makes easier to curve and ride and get passed other vehicles during city ride.
