Bajaj BS6 discontinued motorcycles – The Pune based auto maker had seven sub-brands – Two of them have been killed in the recent times!
The Bharat Stage 6 emission norms which got enforced on 1st April 2020 in India have brought with them a death knell for many ailing products in the 2-wheeler market. Almost every maker has dropped some models from its lineup. In this story, let us talk about the country’s largest 2-wheeler exporter – Bajaj Auto!
Bajaj has a big linup of motorcycles in its portfolio starting from 100 cc all the way till 400 cc. Its most popular Pulsar series has retained all models, barring one of the oldest variant which was on sale since 2001. Let us list which models are not a part of the arsenal now, at least in this first phase…
Bajaj BS6 Discontinued Motorcycles
- Bajaj V15 & V12
- Discover 110
- Discover 125
- Pulsar 180
Actually, the V brand was discontinued long back and Bajaj is not producing it any more. However, it continues to find a place on the website for unknown reasons. Bajaj may consider bringing the brand back but not in the same format for sure.
Apart from the initial few years, the Discover range has always found the going tough. The new Discover twins introduced in 2018 have been ditched within a span of only two years. Will Bajaj resurrect it again? No clues!
The oldest Pulsar – naked Pulsar 180 is no more in the market. Last year, Bajaj launched its faired sibling Pulsar 180F which is what will now carry the baton forward.
This means that out of the seven brands Bajaj had – two (V and Discover) have been dropped whereas the remaining – Dominar, Pulsar, Avenger, Platina and CT, transition to the greener era.
