Bajaj Auto Limited will focus on the 125 cc motorcycle segment and Bajaj Pulsar 125 will be the next motorcycle launch from Bajaj. In India, there is a possibility that Pulsar Neon stream will be launched, maybe as soon as within the next two months, before the festive season starts.
The thought within Bajaj Auto's strategists is that new regulations have made 150 cc motorcycles costlier, in comparison to the 125 cc segment. All motorcycles above 150 cc capacity need to have ABS, and two-wheelers of 125 cc and below need to have combined braking system (CBS), if not ABS. The presence of ABS means a good ₹ 7,000-8,000 increase in prices. Apart from ABS, Bharat Stage VI emission regulations will also come into effect from April 1, 2020, and prices of all two-wheelers will go up further.
Bajaj has been one of the most popular brands in the 150 cc segment with the Pulsar 150 being sold heavily in the country. Even today, the Pulsar 150 is the highest-selling motorcycle in the 150 cc segment. Since the auto industry going through a slowdown, Bajaj has decided to use a different tactic to face an expected slowdown in sales. To keep the costs competitive, Bajaj has planned to introduce a smaller 125 cc Pulsar with CBS.
What is still not clear is what powertrain Bajaj will be using on the Pulsar 125, and if it will be BS-VI ready at launch. The Pulsar NS125 sold abroad is currently powered by a 124.45 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which puts out 11.8 bhp and 11 Nm and is mated to a five-speed transmission. The Pulsar 125 will be positioned as a slightly sportier 125 cc motorcycle than the Discover 125, but will be the most affordable model in the Pulsar family and will come with a single seat, and probably not split seats and aluminium footpegs to keep prices competitive.
The upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 125 will definitely be priced below the Pulsar 150 Neon to make it attractive and accessible to customers. It will probably be a premium model over the Discover 125 CBS with disc brakes.
