This engine is perfectly paired with 5 speed gear box. This 5 speed gear box gives enhanced pick up even at lower rpms which makes it possible to ride with minimum gear shifts. The graceful DTSi technology which is considered as patent of Bajaj is once again used in this power plant to make it more efficient and handy. This power packed engine is capable of generating 23.7 hp at 9000 rpm and 11.4 Nm at 7500 rpm. This youngest cousin of Pulsar 150 is assembled with DTSi , 4 valve technology, that makes it the first of its kind. With two exhaust valves intake and exhaust, this bike performs its best, when compared to two valve engines. With such advancements in technology the bike is assured of better fuel efficiency and power. The hammering torque which this bike produces is result of the improved induction and evacuation of exhaust gasses that is attained at a much higher pace than it earlier did. The smoke is efficiently combusted and cleaned and is therefore claimed as environment friendly bike from Bajaj.

Bajaj has claimed this bike with minimum efforts can attain a top speed of 111 kmph.
‘Honda Stunner CBF’, without this the 125 segment bikes of India would have been incomplete. This premium bike from Honda is witnessing its best phase in its lifecycle with such good response from Indian buyers. Honda Stunner CBF is powered by Air cooled, 4 stroke, OHC, single cylinder engine. This 124.7 cc displacement power plant was capable of engineering 11 hp at 8000 rpm and generated hammering torque of 11 NM at 6500 rpm. This Honda engine was mated with 5 speed gear box that was guided 1 down and 4 up. Coming to the acceleration this bike was capable of attaining naught to 60 in 5.4 sec which is quite impressive for a 125 cc bike. But as it is said nothing is Impossible when you have Honda on your side. Honda Stunner CBF in India has got a top speed of 102.2 kmph. Honda in every sense is the best deal if you are considering bikes in the 125 to 135 cc segment.
Bajaj has always made it big when it comes to fuel economy, with its ExhausTEC and DTSi technology in its power plant. Bajaj Pulsar 135 LS in India has got a healthy fuel efficiency of 50 kmpl on city roads and upto 60 kmpl on highway road conditions.

This Japanese make has claimed to deliver fuel efficiency of 55 plus on city road and up to 70 on highway road conditions. With such good fuel efficiency gone are the days when you had to stop at every petrol pump that comes in your way. Definitely Honda ranks first on the chart of mileage conscious buyers. For speed and power, packing a deal with Bajaj Pulsar is the best choice.
