Bajaj Caliber name patented by the company again; it was a motorcycle it sold in the 2000s which received fair bit of popularity…
Bajaj, under its partnership with Kawasaki, used to sell a motorcycle named Caliber back in the 1998-2000 era. Based on the platform of the 4S, there were various iterations of the model. The most popular among them was the Caliber 115 which was promoted under the tagline – Hoodibaaba!
However, in early/mid 2000s Bajaj discontinued it from the market and started focusing on the Pulsar range which was doing great business for the brand. But, in an interesting move, the Pune based motorcycle maker has re-registered the Caliber nameplate for two-wheelers, electric vehicles, motorcycles, scooters, etc.

The patent application was filed in March this year and the Journal date is mentioned as 12-July-2021. The status is – Accepted & Advertised. That means Bajaj is now free to use it on its upcoming products.
