Bajaj, the shining name in the arena of motorcycles in India, has introduced a new paint scheme for the V15. Named after the country’s first warship, the INS Vikrant, the motorcycle will now also be available in Heroic Red. Other paint schemes available since its launch include Ebony Black and Pearl White.
The mechanicals remain the same 149.5 cc single cylinder, air cooled, SOHC mill churning out 12 PS of maximum power at 7,500 rpm and 13 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. The bike boasts of a part of Vikrant lying deep in it’s fuel tank which is the main USP of the V15. The bike uses a double cradle suspension and gets 33 mm front forks. The 60 watt head lamp will also help during night rides.
The V15 has played an important role in boosting their market share in the 150 cc territory. In fact, in a recent interview to MoneyControl, Mr S Ravikumar, President, Business Development, revealed that the V15 scored 26,500 units in the month of June 2016.
Before this, the company had also introduced a Desert Gold paint scheme in the Avenger Cruise 220. The Avenger is another family of product which has been recently updated and is doing rather well. Bajaj is now expected to launch the Pulsar CS 400 next.
