Bajaj Pulsar NS125 vs TVS Raider: Looks

In terms of looks, the NS125 takes its design inspiration from the elder Pulsar NS models such as NS160 and NS200. Yes, the design is quite old now but it still looks quite aggressive and striking mainly because of the angular design and paint schemes.

The Raider is all-new with a design that might be overkill for some people. Nonetheless, it seems like a good take on commuter motorcycles which usually are made to appeal to the mass market. The Raider does stand out on the road especially in the yellow paint schemes and because of its radical design.
