Know more about Bajaj
Bajaj Auto is an important automobile manufacturing arm of Bajaj Group. It was founded by Jamnalal Bajaj in 1940s and currently operates three manufacturing plants in Chakan (Maharashtra), Waluj (Maharashtra) and Pantnagar (Uttarakhand). Apart from these three facilities, they have a research and development center named ‘Ahead’ in Akurdi, Pune.
Bajaj Auto is one among top 5 manufacturers of India and when it comes to exports, they almost have 40% of the motorcycles exported to various global market. Their powerful Pulsar lineup helps them beat any other performance bike under 250cc segment in the country. The motorcycle range practically starts from just INR 33,715.
Bajaj Group currently owns majority stake in KTM and that resulted in breakup of 33 year old tie up with Kawasaki. Bajaj was focusing more on KTM as Probiking dealerships were almost entirely favoring KTM bikes all over India.
This has almost zero effect of Kawasaki in present days as they are retailing equal number of bikes through their limited number of dealerships. In other words, it was entire wastage of funds for them to retail just 2-4 products from 350+ Proking dealerships. Rahul Bajaj (one among top 50 Indian Billionaires) is the chairman of Bajaj Group.
Bajaj Pulsar series offer bikes with engine capacity of 135, 150, 160, 180, 200 and 220cc. Avenger is a cruiser sub brand with three different variants while commuter lineup is handled by Platina, Discover and CT100 series in India. Apart from all these, Bajaj Auto retails V15, V12 and Dominar 400 in India.
They are popular for NS200 and RS200 in certain South Asian, European and Latin American countries. The engine size of these 200cc Pulsar are identical to KTM 200 series while that of Dominar 400 matches to KTM 390 series. Bajaj Auto also retails four wheeled Qute in selected markets while their three wheeled options are very popular in India.
