The new Bajaj 125cc commuter bike has been spotted testing in India, and a look at the bike suggests that it is the upcoming Pulsar P125 in the Chakan-based manufacturer's Pulsar P range of motorcycles. The first set of spy shots shows a design similar to that of the Pulsar P150. Therefore, expect the production-spec P125 bike to get a sleek body, a single-piece headlamp with LED daytime running lights, extended tank shrouds, a single-piece saddle, an engine cowl, clip-on handlebars, and twin-LED taillamps. Other bits could be a semi-digital instrument cluster, a USB port, as well as a similar-looking alloy wheel design.
Bajaj Pulsar P125: Engine
In terms of powertrain, the new Pulsar P125 could be powered by the same 124cc single-cylinder engine linked to a 5-speed transmission. For reference, this engine available with the Pulsar 125 churns out about 12bhp and 11Nm of peak torque.
Bajaj Pulsar P125: Hardware
The suspension setup of the Pulsar P125 consists of RSU telescopic front forks and a rear monoshock, while the stopping power comes from a single-disc setup at the front with single-channel ABS and a drum brake at the rear. The bike will feature the same 17-inch alloy wheels as found on the Pulsar P150.
Bajaj Pulsar P125: India Launch Details
Market reports suggest that the new P125 could arrive on Indian shores next year. Upon launch in the Indian market, the Bajaj Pulsar P125 will sit between the Pulsar 125 and the Pulsar NS125. In terms of market rivalry, the new 125cc Pulsar will be Bajaj's answer to the likes of the TVS Raider 125, the Honda SP 125, and the Hero Glamour XTEC.
Another Bajaj Commuter Bike Spied – Could Be CT150X
In related news, a heavily camouflaged test mule has been spotted in Pune, Maharashtra. It appears to share design similarities with the existing CT125X, however, it is speculated that Bajaj could use a 150cc engine for the new bike – hence, could be named the CT150X. According to the spy shot, the 150cc bike had a round headlamp with the license plate mounted on top, a single-piece handlebar with a brace, an engine crash guard, a single-piece seat, and a rear tyre hugger.
After the removal of the Pulsar P150 from its official website, Bajaj's 150cc portfolio now includes only the Pulsar 150 and the Pulsar N150. But, the launch of the CT150X will fill the void.
