The new variant features a split seat in place of the single-seat unit. Other cosmetic updates include tank shrouds and a belly pan which were missing on Pulsar 125 Neon.

Bajaj has also followed this practice with its most popular 150 range as well where the Neon variants didn't feature additional bodywork, just like the 125 Neon while the top variant came with it. The top-end Bajaj Pulsar 150 price was nearly Rs 13,760 more than that of the Neon variant.
Mechanically, it is powered by the same BS 4 124.4cc single-cylinder two-valve air-cooled engine which develops top power of 12bhp at 8500rpm and peak torque of 11Nm at 6500rpm. The company is planning to launch this new variant in all the states of India by the festive season. The company has confirmed that it will introduce the BS 6 compliant petrol engine with the 125cc model before March 2020.
