The Wind 125 feature front disk brake and the conventional transmission (one down and four up with a clutch) as compared to the rotary transmissions found on most underbone and tricycle model motorcycles. The front head cowl conceals a set of functional clocks that provide motorcycle speed, engine revolution counter, odometer and fuel gauge. The Wind 125 retails for P54,000.

The Byk 100 is the entry-level motorcycle of Bajaj. The defining feature of the Bajaj's motorcycle is the head cowl which is also present in the Byk100. The Byk 100 uses a drum brake system for the front and a rotary type transmission with a clutch. The retail price is P34,000. However, this particular model has regressed and was replaced with the CT 100 model, which has typically the same specifications.
