Bajaj Auto launched the Pulsar 125 for the first time in the Indian market in August 2019. That was the Pulsar 125 Neon and a month later, the Pulsar 125 Split Seat was also introduced in the market. While the former received a BS6 treatment earlier this year, the Pulsar 125 Split Seat BS6 was recently launched in India. At that time, it was launched only in disc variant. Now, the company has launched the Drum Brake variant of the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat. Also, Bajaj is offering big cash discounts on Pulsar 125 Series.
First of all, starting with the newly launched Pulsar 125 Split Seat. So, the new model doesn't get any major cosmetic or mechanical changes, only the front braking system has been changed. The Pulsar 125 Split Seat BS6 was earlier available in only one variant with 240 mm disc brake at the front and 130 mm drum unit at the rear. Now, it gets a new affordable variant with 130 mm drum brakes at either end with CBS or combined braking system. The new Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat Drum Brake variant is priced at Rs. 73,274 while the Disc Brake variant retails at Rs. 80,218. Thus, the drum variant is around 7,000 rupees more affordable than the disc brake model.
The new Bajaj Pulsar 125 Split Seat is powered by a BS6-compliant 124.4cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected DTS-i engine. This motor churns out 11.8 PS of maximum power at 8500 RPM and 10.8 Nm of peak torque at 6500 RPM. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. For suspension duties, it gets telescopic forks at the front and twin nitrox gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. It rides on 17-inch tubeless tyres. The front tyre measures 80/100-17 while the rear one is a 100/90 section 17-inch unit. Also, it gets a semi-analogue semi-digital instrument cluster.
Lastly, talking about the discount offers, so Bajaj is offering cash discounts of up to Rs. 3,000 on Pulsar 125 Split Seat. The Pulsar 125 Neon BS6 is also getting cash discounts of up to Rs. 2,500 and the Bajaj dealerships are giving cash discounts on the Platina series too. One can get even more discounts and a nice deal if you bargain properly with the dealer this festive season. What are your thoughts on the new variant of Pulsar 125 Split Seat?
