Pulsar 125NS, the 150cc killer Coming soon.......

Recommended Posts

We have a very very good News for those 150cc bike lovers in 2013, who always swear by a right mix of FE & Performance.

150cc is the most conjested market in India & the most popular amongst College goers. A typical 150cc will have around 15Bhp, Disk brake, 45ish Kmpl, awesome looks, some have mono-shock.... etc. And herecomes the 150cc killer, aka Pulsar125NS.

In came the news, 2 Pulsars on Cards in 2013, so as we all know one has to be the 390cc Pulsar, so that makes us think, what the other is. If you think logically, KTM has only 3 engine option, 125cc, 200cc, 390cc.

So there comes the result, it has to be the 125cc Pulsar NS, since it would have the same mounting points, engine block, various other components as Pulsar 200NS.

So what this bike is going to be?

125cc, air cooled(to cut cost), 15HP, Perimeter frame, Mono-Shocks, rear disk(opt to cut cost), 125kg, stylish, Fuel efficient, Awesome looking,...... A killer Composition.

Wow...that would be a great combination of beauty, performance and FE. But i doubt that bajaj would do it, as it would have negative impact on its own 150CC pulsar sales chart. I mean who would like to but an expensive than 125 CC - 150 CC pulsar with lesser FE?

A FZ is low on FE & Power, but its sales chart reflects something else, why?

A 125cc hitech engine would be as FE as & as Powerful as a 150cc. With Perimeter frame & Mono shocks, its Ride & Handling will become a bench mark in 150cc flooded market.

Pulsar NS is a new platform and it needs volume to keep cost down. Though 125cc NS would cannibalize 150cc Pulsar, who cares as long as its Bajaj. Also a 160-170cc engine on NS frame will be a good bet, but who has the engine? Bajaj got only 3 engines to fit this frame. When a 125cc engine is going to kill the 150cc market & also gives volume for the new platform, why leave it?

Manufacturing a 160cc engine would consume time & resources, so its best to make use of current engine line up.

Actually FZ is a 150 CC and a distinct look that is the only thing which makes it selling...but point to note here is that Pular is the leader in the segment and bajaj may not like to loose leadership to 125 CC one and open the gate for other players in the market.

Pulsar 125 NS !

Well it would be a great replacement for Pulsar 125LS, which is still confusing itself to justify itself as a Pulsar.

& it would be challenging to see, how Bajaj manages to accomodate 4-valves, 3-Spark plugs(200 NS trademark) into its tiny head of 125cc engine.

But I still doubt that this bike can replace 150 & 180 Pulsars as still 200NS is unable to create its Marque as a evolution of Pulsar.

Bajaj needs different, low-cost, non-complex design to replace ageing 150 & 180 Pulsars.

Pulsar is the 150cc Leader, but having the Pulsar to lead 125cc is also good.

This 125cc Pulsar, though is a 125cc bike, but completely competes with 150cc in terms of performance & no other Indian Company have the access to such powerful 125cc engine.

Over the yrs, Bajaj could bring a new(ly rebored) engine in the middle of 125-200cc, say 170cc which will have 20+ PS of power to fight all 180-200cc bikes in the market.
