A new branding from comes to Indian road titled Bajaj V Brand on 01 February 2016. The new Bajaj V Brand is likely to be placed between the Bajaj Discover and Bajaj Pulsar models. As per the promo video published it seems that the V brand model is made upon metal of INS Vikrant as they have titled the teaser as “Rebirth of INS Vikrant”. Thus the name comes Bajaj “V”.
INS Vikrant played an immense role in the 1971 Indo-Pak war. The Seahawk fighters of INS Vikrant had completely devastated Pakistani forces. Thus, Bajaj means to say that the V brand will devastate all its enemies (competitors) on the road. The decommissioned and scrapped parts of INS Vikrant is now used to make Bajaj V brand bikes. Thus, the V takes part in future history. Bajaj decided to go for this novel ideas as they wanted to have the aircraft carrier alive.
A retro classic styling is adopted by Bajaj V Brand to captures a spot in every youth’s heart. With the single seat and comfortable handle Bajaj V gives a complete cafe racer feel. As part of the cafe racer styling, the V bikini also features attractive rear cowl, an upswept exhaust, fairing, single piece tail lamp unit, alloy wheels, front disc brake etc.
The engine specifications are not yet revealed. However, we can expect a 150cc for V as power matters for the iconic youth. The engine will be most probably the one found in Bajaj Discover 150F model. Thus, with powerful engine, heavy body and styling the V brand is expected to be the most selling bike of 2016 academic year in colleges across India commemorating the pride of soldiers of INS Vikrant. Thus, Bajaj V becomes part of history and Indian Navy – the heroes of 1971.
