New BS-VI Compliant Engine
The new BS-VI compliant HET engine on the SP 125 uses advanced eSP (Enhanced Smart Power) Technology to optimize performance and reduce emissions. This technology works by reducing friction and providing the bike with a smooth eco-friendly ride using an ACG starter. Unlike a conventional starter motor, ACG starts the engine in a jolt-free manner, thus, there is no gear meshing noises. Apart from this, the bike also gets a new PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel Injection) system to improve the overall fuel efficiency of the vehicle by almost 16%. This new 124cc 4-stroke engine is capable of producing about 10.7 HP at 7,500 rpm and 10.9 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. Also, this engine is now paired with a 5-speed gearbox.
