Bajaj Pulsar is an Iconic nameplate in the Indian Motorcycling History. The Pulsar moniker is associated with motorcycles of different engine displacements ranging from 150cc to 220cc and also 125cc. Bajaj launched the Pulsar 125 Neon in August 2019 and it received a great response. Buoyed by the success of the Pulsar 125 Neon, Bajaj also launched the Pulsar 125 Split Seat in India and it made everyone go crazy. However, this bike wasn't available nationwide and also until now, Bajaj didn't upgrade it to BS6. But now, we have got our hands on the Price, Specs and other details of the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat BS6. This bike has started arriving in dealerships and we have got exclusive images too.
Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat was first launched in September 2019 but it wasnt available across the country. Initially, it was available only in some limited places like in Telangana, Maharashtra and some North-Eastern states. Bajaj also brought in the second batch of Pulsar 125 Split Seat in January this year but again it wasnt available nationwide. The prospective buyers were expecting its BS6-compliant model to launch but that also didn't happen hitherto. However, the BS6 Pulsar 125 Split Seat has now arrived in Bihar. It has also got quite a lot of changes compared to the BS4 model. Like the changes? Share your opinions in our 91W Two-Wheeler WhatsApp Group
As you can see in the above picture, this is the new 2020 Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat BS6. The BS4 split seat model was completely identical to the Pulsar 150 Twin Disc in terms of appearance. But, for the BS6 model, Bajaj has kept it simply plain with very minimal body graphics. The BS4 model was available in Blue with Black and Red with Black colour options. While the BS6 model is available in Black with Orange and Black with Silver colour shades.
We have also highlighted the main cosmetic differences that differentiate the Pulsar 125 Split Seat from the Pulsar 125 Neon. Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat BS6 gets an engine cowl, 125 monikers on the body panels, split grab rails and also a split seat set-up. The BS4 Pulsar 125 Split Seat was hampering the sales of the Pulsar 150. And, we believe this is the reason why Bajaj has kept the BS6 models look a bit simple to differentiate both of them. Keeping those things aside, it still looks very sporty, considering it is just a 125cc commuter.
Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat shares its powertrain with the Pulsar 125 Neon. It is powered by a BS6-compliant 124.4cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected DTS-i engine. This engine churns out 12 PS of maximum power at 8500 RPM and 11 Nm of peak torque at 6500 RPM. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The Pulsar 125 Split Seat offers good ride quality with telescopic front forks and nitrox gas-charged rear shock absorbers. For braking duties, it gets a front disc brake and a rear drum brake along with combined braking system (CBS).
The new 2020 Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat has been priced at Rs. 78,643, Ex-showroom, Bihar and the on-road price will cost you around Rs. 94,738. After the recent price hike, the BS6 Pulsar 125 Neon is priced at Rs. 70,995 (drum) and Rs. 75,494 (disc) and the Pulsar 150 BS6 Series starts at Rs. 90,003 (Ex-showroom Delhi). This means that the Pulsar 125 Split Seat is around 3,000 rupees dearer than the Pulsar 125 Neon Disc Brake model. We spoke to various Bajaj dealerships across Assam and Bihar and most of them said that the Pulsar 125 Split Seat BS6 will arrive in their showrooms within 10-15 days. However, we still don't have any official confirmation on its pan-India launch.
