On the inside, it is still a Pulsar; sporty and ready to burn some rubber!

Verdict – The Pulsar 125 Neon, a new entry-level commuter bike, has been launched to appeal to a wider audience and also avoid the ABS rule has made this motorcycle the most affordable Pulsar ever. With all the genes of the Pulsar 150 Neon, owning this motorcycle feels like owning a Pulsar 150 Neon in a smaller package. We would have loved to welcome the NS 125 too, which is sold in international markets because of its aggressive and modern design to whose comparison this Pulsar feels out-dated. Although it costs only Rs. 6000/- less than its elder sibling, once BS6 norms kick in, the price difference between the 125cc and 150cc Pulsars will widen as the former will continue with a carb set-up while the latter will have to switch over to FI. Thus for those looking for a stylish and muscular motorcycle without worrying much about mileage and purchase price, the Pulsar 125 Neon ticks the right boxes for them.

Twin LED strips on the tail-light are a Pulsar trademark

What’s Cool

* Peppy styling with neon highlights look good
* Ergonomics are comfortable with an upright seating posture
* Combi-braking system with optional front disc has good feedback

What’s Not So Cool

* Motorcycle feels heavy for the performance
* The engine feels tuned down a bit too much against its elder sibling

Old design but it still look quite intimidating!
