Bajaj V15: 9 Quick Pointers You Should Know – Pics Gallery [Video Updated]

Has V12 ended up eating V15's sales?

Barely a few days back, Bajaj has officially launched the V15, the first motorcycle from the new family. V15 is a retro-modern design which, we believe, got inspiration from Bajaj’s Boxer Cafe Racer of CNR Expo Turkey.

Nonetheless, here are a few quick pointers of V15 that you should know..

  1. Upon first look, V15 may not look as striking but in flesh it appears to be put together well and remember this is not a flashy design that Bajaj had in mind. V15, right from its promotional campaigns, confirms that Bajaj has chosen function over form. They call it a ‘neo-Classic’ design.
  2. Only the tank or a part of it is made from the metal of INS Vikrant, the warship and not the whole motorcycle.
  3. V15 gets 33 dia front forks and dual rear shock absorbers, which Bajaj claims are the largest in the segment.
  4. V15 comes with a 60 watt trapezoidal headlamp – the best on a 150 cc commuter yet. Bajaj claims it is 60% brighter than other bikes.
  5. The engine specs reveal that this will be an interesting traffic-beater and load-hauler. Though 12 PS from the 150 cc motor may not sound luring, 13 Nm from that 135.5 kg (kerb weight) metal sounds yumm and let us tell you it is more than Pulsar 150’s 12.5 Nm and equal to the most modern Pulsar AS150!
  6. Bajaj says they will make more ‘V’s in the future if there is demand and acceptance.
  7. A few of you may mistake it as a single-seater but that is a cowl on that rear seat. Bajaj says it is easily removable to liberate space for the pillion. We have shared a pic below without it.
  8. Bajaj will start production of V15 very soon and deliveries will commence from next month (March 2016) onwards.
  9. Bajaj confirms that V15 will be priced slightly over Rs 60,000.
