Mr. Eric Vas, President (Motorcycle Business), Bajaj Auto, said in an earlier interview that the strong market response and positive forecast meant that the company would increase production of the Bajaj V by September. The ongoing festive season is bound to reflect in good numbers for the Bajaj V.
The Bajaj V is now available in a range of four colors – Ebony Black, Pearl White, Heroic Red and the new Ocean Blue. The premium commuter is powered by the 149.5 cc DTS-i single-cylinder air-cooled engine that produces 12 PS (11.83 hp) and 13 Nm of torque and sends drive to the wheel via a 5-speed transmission.
The motorcycle’s tank is built from metal of India’s first indigenously-built aircraft carrier, INS Vikrant, which was decommissioned in 1997 after 36 years of service.
