2017 Bajaj V15 BS4 – All You Need To Know
In order to keep sales going post Supreme Court decision of banning BS3 Compliant vehicles, Bajaj Auto has introduced BSIV engine in its entire range of motorcycles in India. The company has also launched the 2017 Bajaj V15 equipped with BS4 engine and AHO (Automatic Headlamp On) function. As a reminder, the V15 is the first motorcycle from the homegrown two-wheeler maker in its new ‘V’ brand. Positioned between the Discover and the Pulsar range, this motorcycle has been marketed as lifestyle commuter. The most interesting aspect of this bike is that it contains metal from the INS Vikrant – India’s first aircraft carrier.
Just so you know, the INS Vikrant had played a crucial role in 1971 Indo-Pak War. First commissioned in 1961, the INS Vikrant served the country for over 36 years before finally getting decommissioned in the year 1997. After that it was kept as a museum ship in Mumbai, and was sent to scrapyard in January 2014, but Bajaj didn’t let that happen.
First launched on February 1, 2015, Bajaj has managed to sell over 2 lakh V15’s in the Indian market. The company has also introduced a new dual-tone color – Ocean Blue – to celebrate the success of this motorcycle. Adding to it, Bajaj Auto has introduced the new V12 motorcycle which is positioned below the V15. The 2017 V15 motorcycle is priced at Rs 63,001 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Though it was claimed a niche bike, it has also affected the sales of mass-segment 150cc bikes like Suzuki Gixxer, Yamaha R15, etc. The company is offering a compulsory accessory package that costs an additional Rs. 1,000, while the stock Bajaj V bike is priced at Rs. 62,001.
