If you want to enter the world of Pulsars, Bajaj has a sweet surprise for you. The bike maker has finally launched the Pulsar 125 Neon in India. While the drum brake variant is priced at Rs 64,000, the disc brake variant is priced at Rs 66,618 (both prices ex-showroom Delhi). At this price, the new Pulsar 125 Neon is around Rs 20,000 more affordable than the Pulsar 150.

On the visual front, it looks eerily similar to the Pulsar 150 Neon. You get the same black paint scheme and yellow decals as seen on the Pulsar 150 Neon edition. However, to set apart from the bigger Pulsar, it gets a new neon blue/black paint job and some ‘125’ stickers on the body panels.
The Pulsar 125 isn’t powered by an all-new engine; instead, the powerplant is based on the Pulsar LS 135’s engine and makes 12PS of power and 11Nm of torque. That’s just 2PS and 2Nm less than the Pulsar 150! So what Bajaj is offering is an entry-level performance motorcycle which could be almost on par with the Pulsar 150, but a whole lot cheaper. Sounds like a cracking deal to us.
This motor isn’t BS6-compliant for now, but we could expect Bajaj to launch an updated version of the bike before the new emission norms kick in. You can read our detailed story on the baby Pulsar when it was first spotted out on Indian roads for testing purposes.
In terms of rivals, the new Pulsar 125 goes up against the conventional 125cc crop such as the Hero Glamour FI and the Honda CB Shine SP.
