Bajaj Auto has
unveiled its new 150cc commuter bike ‘V’ in the capital city of New Delhi. The
metal used in building these motorcycles has been sourced from the erstwhile
INS Vikrant. The V will be priced between Rs. 60,000 to Rs. 65,000
(ex-showroom) and will come in two colour variants Ebony Black and Pearl White.
The V features large fuel tank which can
hold 13 litres of fuel and the metal sourced from the INS Vikrant gives the
bike strength and solidity. The bike also features a double cradle design which
offers outstanding rigidity and strength while the ergonomics enables
the rider to ride up-right with a proud stance. The V rides on large 33 diameter front forks
and rear shock absorbers. The bike will also offer wide front and rear
tyres for better grip and traction. The wheels are aluminium die-cast 5 double
spoke alloy design which adds flavour to the bike.
The V is powered by a 150cc DTS-i engine which
produces a maximum torque of 13Nm at 5500rpm and a peak power of 11.8bhp
power at 7500rpm. The V will also come with a stylised removable rear seat
cowl, which can be instantly detached to seat a pillion rider. The new
speedometer cluster comes with a dual colour LED fuel level indicator and a
classy looking LED tail lamp. Eric Vas, President (Motorcycle Business), said,
“The Bajaj V shall usher a new era in commuter motorcycling. We believe the
Indian customer buying a commuter motorcycle deserves something that is
substantial, solid and which moves with a sense of purpose. The V was designed
and built to be invincible, and will change the experience of commuter biking
much like the Pulsars changed sports biking.”
