Bajaj V Review

Overview

Bajaj has finally launched the motorcycle made from the Invincible metal of INS Vikrant in India and named it 'V'. The motorcycle is different from others at it carries a feel of patriotism and proud in itself. Bajaj says that the fuel tank of the motorcycle would be made from the recycled metal after the dismantling of the retired warship.

The design is a one of its kind offering in this new segment, termed as premium commuter by the motorcycle maker. The classic feel missed with the modern approach of Bajaj has made the V a special one for 2016. Bajaj also hints at a limited production of 20,000 units a month and the exact price of V is INR 62,002 (ex-showroom Delhi). The motorcycle would definitely be special for those who are firmly attached with the stories of the war hero, INS Vikrant.

Design and Style

Bajaj has presented the new V with a totally new design for the segment it would be rivaling in the near future. Defining the design of the bike is a bit difficult task as it would look a new thing whenever you see it from a different angle. Starting from its front view, it looks more like a commuter motorcycle with premium finish and design. The headlamp is actually the most debatable part as it could have been a round headlamp with Avenger styling, reminding the times when Boxer used to rule the Indian streets. Many would miss the V because of its headlight only as no other part seems odd to the new name. Looking from the side, the headlight assembly carries a Benelli like design and looks great from its side view. The three quarter's for the headlamp are neither odd nor perfect. Leaving its headlight behind, the best part comes in the form of an all-new fuel tank, made from the metal of INS Vikrant. It is special and it's design speaks clearly for itself.

The fat looking tank is well chiseled from certain angles and provide a premium look to the motorcycle. It resembles to those on expensive Bonneville range from Triumph, with an Insignia of the INS Vikrant. It comes with a dual tone finish and also houses the all new V logo on both of the sides. The seat of the new V is a straight one and comes with a panel for converting the motorcycle into a single seater. The seat being a single piece houses the panel on its rear end, providing the cafe racer feel whereas with a key, it can be removed within a minute and the bike is ready for the pillion rider. The rear end of the bike is futuristic and beautiful, with Mahindra Mojo style extended panel right from the middle of the motorcycle's seat. It houses an excellent looking tail lamp and comes with a great overall panel designs.

Instrument Console

The instrument console on the new V is relatively simple and classic in design. Two division, one round on the left and oval on the right houses all that's counted as the instrument panel for the motorcycle. The round dial gets an analogue speedometer and odometer. The neutral light and fuel indicator is housed in the oval surrounding. Both the areas are silver outlined and looks good with the overall design of the motorcycle.

Engine and Gearbox

The engine powering the Bajaj V is a 149.5 cc, 1-cylinder air cooled unit with twin spark technology. It produces just 11.83 BHP @ 7500 rpm and 13 NM @ 5500 rpm. The gearbox used is a 5-speed manual unit and the motorcycle gets a conservative approach towards the overall power delivery. Commuter style riding and relaxed sitting posture makes it a good one for those who need a decently powered and differently designed machine.

Dimensions and Weight

Bajaj V measures 2044 mm in length, 780 mm in width and 1070 mm in height. The overall stance is quiet low and the seat height is very comfortably placed at 780 mm. It gets a wheelbase of 1315 mm and the bike weighs just 135.5 kg. It comes with a 13 liter fuel tank and a usable reserve of 1.7 liters.

Brakes, Tyres and Suspension

Bajaj has equipped the V with 240 mm of front disc brake and 130 mm drum brake for the rear wheel. The front wheel is 90/90-18 whereas the rear wheel is a cruiser style 120/80-16 unit. It uses star shaped 10 spoke alloy wheels and comes with 33 mm front telescopic forks. The rear suspension is gas filled, twin-spring loaded hydraulic type.

Shades and Price

Bajaj offers the V in four shades: Ocean Blue, Heroic Red, Pearl White and Ebony Black. It comes with Red inserts in White and Black shade, and uses a Red rear grab-rail. Bajaj V offers a very good value for money, it carries a price tag of Rs. 62,000 (ex-showroom Delhi), INR 62,820 (ex-showroom, Mumbai), INR 63,682 (ex-showroom, Chennai), and 65,495 (ex-showroom, Kolkata).
