Bajaj Auto Ltd has never been the one to rest on its laurels. Less than a year after launching the very successful V15 premium 150cc motorcycle, the manufacturer has now revealed the second model in its ‘V’ bike range. Dubbed as the Bajaj V12, the new entrant is a 125cc bike that makes the Bajaj V range a lot more accessible to an average bike buyer. The Bajaj V12 is priced at Rs 56,283 (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Here are all the details on the upcoming 125cc commuter motorcycle from Bajaj Auto. Also See- Bajaj Dominar 400, Upcoming Bajaj Pulsar Bikes in India
Powering the Bajaj V12 is a new 125cc engine that possibly comes from the Discover 125. V12 also shares much of its design with the V15. However, the V12 misses out on the rear seat cowl that’s available on the V15. The extensive parts sharing between the two V bikes should help Bajaj keep a check on production costs. The V12 will rival some established players like – TVS Phoenix, Honda Shine and Hero Glamour. However, the V12 is expected to repeat the success story of the V15.

Bajaj V12 Design Review
The new Bajaj V12 looks almost exactly like the V15. The two V bikes share in plenty to keep the production costs low. The V12 too boasts a classic retro look that should find many takers. The V12 becomes the only bike in the 125cc segment to have a retro design. However, the V12 has a different design for the alloy wheels. Also, its front forks get rubber covers. However, the V12 still looks a lot like the V15, which should impress the prospective customers.
