Bajaj’s new CT 125X model has been spotted at a warehouse in an undisclosed form, indicating that a launch could be just around the corner. It is not yet clear whether this new model will completely replace the CT 110X or be sold alongside it.

The bike that has been spotted has a “125X” nameplate on the side panels, but is equipped with a drum brake at the front. This is a clear indication that the engine capacity of the new motorcycle will be slightly less than 125 cc. as per government regulations that motorcycles above 125cc must be fitted with ABS and therefore front disc brakes.

The increase in displacement also means that the CT 125X will have more power than the CT 110X’s 115cc engine, which develops 8.5 hp. at 7,000 rpm and 9.8 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm. While details about this engine have not been revealed yet, it may share components with other 125cc models in Bajaj’s lineup, such as the Pulsar 125.

While the engine is the main talking point here, the CT 125X has also received a few cosmetic changes to differentiate it from its younger sibling. For starters, this model gets different paint options compared to the smaller CT, as well as a much thicker, double-stitched seat. There’s also a USB charging port on the handlebars, which the CT 110X doesn’t have.

Apart from these changes, there is not much that differentiates the future CT 125X from the CT 110X. The overall silhouette as well as the underpinnings bear more than a passing resemblance to each other, indicating that the price tag of this new model won’t be too far from the Rs 66,298 (ex-showroom, Delhi) you’ll have to shell out for the CT 110X. If the CT 125X does make it to the showrooms, it will compete with the Honda SP125, TVS Raider and Hero Super Splendor.

Bajaj Auto sold a total of 469,541 motorcycles in the first four months of the current fiscal, down 5.53% year-on-year (April-July 2021: 497,061 units). Bicycle exports also fell to 683,410 units, down 6.52% (April-July 2021: 731,090 units) over the same period.
