Having said this, this upcoming 150cc bike will be equipped with 300 mm front and 230 mm rear disc brakes with ABS. In addition to this, the improved suspension for better control and stability.

The current iteration of this motor generates a peak power and torque output of 14 Ps and 13.25 Nm respectively in the present Pulsar 150. This engine comes mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.

The Pulsar 125, just like the other two models, will get a new platform and updated engine options. At present, this bike is offered with an air-cooled, single-cylinder, 4-stroke motor. This engine churns out 11.8 PS and 10.8 Nm of peak torque output. It is also expected that the brand will be tuning this motor to offer better response and higher fuel economy.
