  • Bajaj Auto extends its Pulsar 125 portfolio by adding a Split Seat variant

    Bajaj Auto has extended its Pulsar 125 portfolio by adding a new ‘Split Seat’ variant. The new Pulsar 125 Split Seat is powered by 125cc BS6 DTS-i engine with a power output of 11.8 PS, making it the highest in this segment, and 10.8 Nm of peak torque.

    The exciting new offering also dons a wolf-eyed headlamp cluster with twin pilot lamps and infinity twin-strip LED tail lamps. The 3D logos on the tank, the rear cowl, sporty split grab rails and the highlights on the black alloy wheels give this new bike a sporty and vibrant look.

    Commenting on the launch, Mr Sarang Kanade, President, Bajaj Auto said, “We are excited to bring out a new Pulsar 125cc variant offering. Pulsar 125 launched in August last year, soon became one of the fastest-growing Pulsar variants with more than 1 lac bikes sold within 1st 6 months of launch. The new Pulsar 125 Split Seat will attract premium commuter segment customers who have always wanted to buy a sporty motorcycle with outstanding performance, style, and thrill at an amazing price point. While the last few months have been testing times for both the industries and consumers alike, we hope the new Pulsar 125 Split Seat variant will re-ignite consumer interests and receive an equal amount of love, admiration and acceptance such as that of the Pulsar 125.”

    The new Pulsar 125 spilt seat variant has a 5-speed gearbox with a primary kick to enable the rider start the bike in any gear, clip-on handlebars on a 31mm front fork; a class-leading feature in the M3 segment, a wide digital console with trip meter, anti-skid braking system to avoid skidding or slipping and a BS6 compliant electronic injection that ensures a smooth running of the bike are some new features that the new variant boasts about.

    Priced at INR 79,091/- the new Pulsar 125 split seat will be available in Neon Green (on Matte Black), Black Silver & Black Red colour options across all Bajaj Auto dealerships in India.

      You're right, a part of it is due to BS6 compliance. Even 180's used to be around 134 kgs in the glorious past...

      But I also think it might have a structural advantage due to components from the senior Pulsars. Its not made ground up with 125cc capacity in mind. How this translates to a real world benefit, or even if it does benefit at all, we never know.

      Underboring always gives this problem. Remember, Ninja 400 weighing 200kgs+, because it was based on 650R platform?

      Of course, choices exist. Honda SP 125 in comparison is 118 kgs wet, while being BS6. Scooters are further lower, upto 104 kgs for 125cc.
      BS6 however has made sure we need to accept higher kerb weights to be at peace..
