Bajaj Vikrant has updated its V15 model with new gearing pattern and increased performance.
Vikrant V15had created a hype during its launch. Apparently, Bajaj had used the metal from INS Vikrant, a warship which onceserved during many battles in the Indian Army. The bike itself was a new design depicting a cruiser styled commuter. It also had a distinct thump soundfired from the exhaust while riding.
Now, Bajaj has given it a minor update that isn’t negligible. The updated version sees a little rise in the horsepower by 1bhpcompared to the outgoing modelthat results in a revised output of 12.8bhp and 13Nm of peak torque from its 149.5cc air-cooled engine. The gearing pattern as well has been revised from an all down pattern to a 1 down and 4 up pattern that has been trending in all bikes now.
Along with the small mods in the engine and gearing setup, updated V15 receives new graphics on the fuel tank and side panels. Other than that, everything remains the same with telescopic forks at the front and twin shocks at the rear for suspension. Braking is done by 240mm discs in the front and 130mm drum brakes at the rear and reports claim that we can expect an ABS on this motorcycle by April 2019.
The 2019 Bajaj V15 has been released at a price of Rs.67,187 and it is available now at all Bajaj showrooms in the country. The main competitors for V15 are Honda Unicorn 150, Hero Achiever and Yamaha SZ-RR.
