Bajaj V Review

23 Dec, 2021 03:08 PM

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

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.

Bajaj V 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.

Bajaj V 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.

Bajaj V Colours 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).

Bajaj V15 is a great bike with a classic and retro style

Animesh Choudhary | 6 months ago
helpful 0

I bought the Bajaj V15 in 2016 and was really impressed with the classic and retro style of the bike. I knew that I couldn't afford a Royal Enfield, so I thought this was the closest I could get. The pick-up of the bike is a bit lower than other 150cc bikes, but the mileage is quite satisfactory. I have used the bike both in the city and on road trips and it works quite well. The only feature that is similar to a Royal Enfield is the firing sound that the bike makes when the speed goes up to 50-70kmph. The bike vibrates a lot at this speed, but after that it runs smoothly.

The only problem I have faced with the bike since the past year is the back and neck pain that I experience after riding it for long hours. After taking a Royal Enfield training program, I was told that this is because of the improper functioning of the rear suspensions. The pillion seat is also quite uncomfortable and it causes back pain after an hour or so of sitting on it.

Overall, the Bajaj V15 is a great bike with a classic and retro style. It has a good mileage, runs smoothly and has a good sound. Despite the minor issues, it is a great bike for those who want a classic and retro look.

Long distance journeys were very uncomfortable

Agha Saquib Raza | 6 months ago

Buying the Bajaj V15 was a comparatively good experience, as it cost lesser than other 150cc bikes. The locking system was also good and stylish. However, the riding experience was quite bad, as even in 5th gear, it made a sound as if it was in 3rd gear. The backseat passenger was very uncomfortable while riding. If they don't hold on properly, they could easily fall off even at low speeds. The seating design was also very bad. The fuel indicator was not accurate either, showing full even when in reserve. This caused much confusion when it came to placing the fuel indicator. The performance was also not up to the mark, as the pick up was not great and after riding for more than 15 kms, the mileage dropped to 40 km/l. The service centres were also not good, as they didn't respond promptly and even during free service, they would charge a lot. After a free service, they would charge more than 3500Rs for normal service. The tyre was also of very poor quality, making it hard to ride. Long distance journeys were very uncomfortable and gave back pain. The main problem with the bike is that it has very low resale value. It is recommended that you do not purchase this bike.

Bike is good but the performance is not good, as soon as the speed goes above 50 kmph the bike gets vibrate. Looks wise is good but performance is worst. In 9 months I am planing to change the bike in next few month. The seats are very small. It's engine produces bad sounds also it is not comfortable for 2 people. Backseat is very short.

Total waste of money

V is totally bad. The thing which dislike the most is mileage, not crossing 35-36 kmpl in any condition. Gear shifting and vibrations are big problem.

Pick up is good but not great. 5. Exhaust noise :- awesome Cons :- 1. Mileage :- 40 kmpl (normal riding without trying to get good mileage) 2. Weight :- The bike is definitely heavy 3.
