Bajaj To Use V As A Platform To Launch Several Variants

Written By:

Bajaj Auto launched the V-15 motorcycle in India during February 2016. Now reports suggest that the Indian two-wheeler manufacturer could spawn more models under the V badge. The V15 executive commuter is the first product under the V-Series and several more are expected soon.

The V-15 motorcycle from Bajaj Auto has an unique selling point, which sets it apart from other bikes. Bajaj Auto has used scrap metal from the iconic INS Vikrant, which served the purpose of an aircraft carrier during wartime. The metal of the battleship was used for the V-15's tank by Bajaj.

Powering the V-15 motorcycle is a 150cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine. Bajaj engineers have tuned the engine to produce 11.8bhp and 13Nm of peak torque. The motorcycle receives disc and drum brake combination for efficient braking ability.

So far, Bajaj Auto has not confirmed what specification will their next motorcycle in the V category be. There is a possibility that engineers could lend their 200cc engine to V-Series for a V-220. Bajaj could also introduce a smaller capacity V motorcycle for a larger audience.

A lot of this news depends on the response Bajaj Auto receives with their V-15 bike. Bajaj Auto has a realistic goal of achieving 20,000 sales per month with the V-15. We will have to wait and see as to how fast Bajaj Auto will introduce new models within their V-Series of motorcycles.
