Refreshing its NS lineup, Bajaj has updated the Pulsar NS160 and Pulsar NS200 and along with the two, the two-wheeler manufacturer recently launched the Pulsar NS125. With a price tag of Rs 1,04,922, the 2024 Bajaj Pulsar NS125 is Rs 5,351 more expensive than the previous model, which retailed at Rs 99,571 (both ex-showroom Delhi). Bajaj has introduced a few updates for its smallest baby. 

In this article, you will find out what the new bike has to offer and also have a look at the motorcycle’s specifications, features and more. Let’s delve deeper and explore whether the 2024 Bajaj Pulsar NS125 can emerge as a true game-changer in the budget motorcycle segment.

A familiar silhouette but a sharper look

Talking about its looks, the new Bajaj Pulsar retains its sleek and muscular design. The fuel tank, fascia as well as the side panels remain the same. However, the internal elements of the headlight have received an update. Furthermore, the thunder-shaped LED DRLs come with low and high beam setup in between.

Engine specs remain unchanged

As far as the engine is concerned, the new Pulsar NS125 draws its juice from the same 125cc single-cylinder motor capable of churning out maximum power of 11.8bhp and a peak torque of 11Nm. The powermill is mated to a five-speed gearbox.

Feature spotlight

One of the striking features of the new NS125 is the digital instrument console with smartphone connectivity. The motorcycle also gets a USB port and ABS. It features front forks and a monoshock, while the braking duties are taken care of by a single front disc and a drum rear brake. The new Bajaj Pulsar NS125 rolls on 17-inch alloy wheels.
