Bajaj V unveiled in India
Bajaj Auto has unveiled its new commuter motorcycle, the V. The motorcycle incorporates the metal of the legendary Indian warship, INS Vikrant. The Bajaj V retains the air-cooled 149.5cc two valve, four stroke engine from the Pulsar 150. The V’s engine makes 11.8bhp of power at 7500 rpm and 13Nm of torque at 5500rpm.
The Bajaj V will feature a semi-double cradle chassis, 33mm forks up front, twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. It will have the conventional disc drum setup with 240mm disc in front and 130 mm drum at the back. On the design front it mixes a sporty and power-cruiser aspect which brings a new design language to the Indian commuter segment. With the 13 litre fuel tank, removable rear seat cowl, LED tail lamp, new instrument cluster and dual colour tone the overall design of the motorcycle is quite unique.
The bikes gets shod with 90/90-18 inch tyre at the front and 120/80-16 inch tyre at the rear. The overall length, width and height of the bike is 2,044mm, 780mm and 1,070mm respectively. The V weighs 135.5kg.
