About Bajaj Pulsar
The Bajaj Pulsar is, without a doubt, one of the longest-running motorbike in the Indian two-wheeler space. The Pulsar began its journey way back in 2001.Who doesn’t remember the ‘definitely male’ tagline… It was an instant hit and became the benchmark for ‘sporty’ looks and performance for entry-level bikes in the Indian market.
The single-cylinder air-cooled engine is based on the Pulsar 150’s architecture, but because it has a shorter stroke of 50.5mm, instead of 60.7mm (bore is identical at 56mm), the cubic capacity stands at 124.4cc. The engine has a rated power output of 11.8bhp and gives out 11Nm of peak torque. At 140 kilos, it’s the heaviest motorcycle in the segment. That said, it’s a very relaxed motor and the power delivery is linear. The NVH levels are quite impressive too. The motor feels happiest when cruising at around 80km/h.
For a 125, it doesn’t struggle anywhere in the rpm band. It pulls up cleanly, it glides on inclines and if you take it out on the highway you will get to feel the power of this machine.
