It may fit but for what purpose? The 105 is a Road derailleur and are made for 9 or 10 speed rear wheels. The Next bike you are asking about is a six speed rear wheel. The appropriate replacement rear derailleur would be a lot less expensive than a 105 and easier to make work correctly with the rest of your drive train.

Next Power Climber is an X-Mart Full suspension MTB selling for around $75. It uses a six speed drive-train. I'm not sure what shifters you have so it may or may not be compatible but my question is what issue are you trying to solve? Is the current derailleur broken? Are you looking to gain some performance?
