Bajaj V, the motorcycle from the Pune-based two-wheeler maker that has been tailored to keep the legacy of INS Vikrant -- India's first aircraft carrier -- alive, is proving to be unstoppable in India. The V, which made its market entry in India in March, has notched sales figure of 2 lakh so far and seems to be gearing up to add a new body shade in its line-up.
Bajaj recently released a new advert of the V, which is sure to give goose bumps to the owners of this motorcycle. But what is intriguing is that the new TVC of the V, produced by Nirvana Films, also gave a glimpse at an interesting blue colour of the model, telling us that it could be in the offing. If this turns out to be true, the V will be available in four body colours including the existing Pearl White, Ebony Black and Heroic Red.
Bajaj V managed to become one of the best selling motorcycles in India within two months of its entry into the market and the company is said to have ramped up the production of the motorcycle from September owing to the skyrocketing demand.
Priced at Rs 62,132 (ex-showroom Delhi), the V measures 2,044mm in length, 780mm in width and 1,070mm in height. It comes with a wheelbase of 1,315mm and offers a ground clearance of 165mm.
Powering the V, the bike made from the metal of the dismantled INS Vikrant, is a 149.5cc single-cylinder four-stroke air-cooled DTS-i engine that can churn out a maximum power of 11.8bhp at 7,500rpm and 13Nm of torque at 5,500rpm.
