Low-slung entry-level 150cc cruiser in the making?
Now, we are not sure what the Pune-based major is upto here, frankly! A camouflaged test mule of a Bajaj motorcycle has been spotted by Bikewale.com and despite that not much can be made out. That’s smart! The test mule sports a lot of dummy body parts from the Pulsar series like the tank and the bikini fairing, interestingly on a low-cruiser like frame.
The rear panels appear to be model-specific and hint at a low-cost cruiser in the making. But the rider footpegs are not forward perched like a traditional cruiser and instead, they are neutrally positioned, most probably for a wider appeal. Also notice that the motorcycle gets Bajaj’s gas-charged Nitrox rear suspension which even the Avengers do not come with.
This motorcycle is running on smaller and wider rear tyre with alloy wheels and the exhaust also has some hints of the new Avenger Street range (with silver tip). The engine displacement is not known, but Bikewale predicts it to be a near 150cc motor, by the looks of it..
This looks like an incomplete mule running around in its wee days of testing and while that Pulsar tank and headlamp is definitely getting scraped out, there are clear hints that this is an entry-level feature-rich cruiser in the making.
So is this the first motorcycle from the new executive brand which will get launched soon? Or are we looking at another utilitarian model from the Avenger range, possibly to realize Bajaj’s dream of 20,000 monthly unit sales from this brand alone. We await more details on this…
