Eyeing 50,000 unit sales in the next 12 to 18 months, Bajaj Auto has launched its 150 cc sports bike V in Kolkata at Rs 64,498 (ex-showroom). Bajaj V has already created quit a hype as the bike has been built with the metal of INS Vikrant – India’s first aircraft carrier.

 

At an event in Kolkata, Bajaj Auto has also announced the booking window from March 10 to 20. Deliveries will be made on March 23, Martyrs Day.

 

“The Bajaj V has has drawn unprecedented interest and enquired from all over the country. At a price of Rs 64,498, we are looking it as an attractive upgrade for 100-125cc customers,” Sumeet Narang, VP (Marketing), Motorcycle Biz of Bajaj Auto.

 

The Bajaj V will serve as a more premium yet affordable executive segment bike that will attract buyers looking for a slightly premium motorcycle at an affordable price. Positioned above the Discover 150, the new Bajaj V bike takes head on against the likes of Suzuki Gixxer and Yamaha R15.

With such power figures, this will be a slightly less powerful than the Gixxer and Yamaha R15.

 

The Bajaj V15 bike looks like a Scrambler which also has Cafe Racer-inspired styling elements. Other interesting elements are INS Vikrant badge, 5-twin spoke alloys, etc. Some key design elements that help it stand out are – lean and bold body lines, premium texture material, removable rear cowl, LED tail-lamp, 5 double spoke alloys, bold graphics, premium instrument panel with color changing LEDs, pumped up fuel tank, ergonomic handlebars for wide open chest feeling, etc. Bajaj V is made available in two colours – Ebony Black and Pearl White.
