2018 Bajaj V15 – Specification
The Bajaj V15 derives its popularity by using the metal from INR Vikrant, which was Independent India’s first aircraft carrier and served during various wars. Since the Navy took the decision to retire the veteran aircraft carrier, its scrap metal was bought by Bajaj Auto, that in turn recycled the metal and uses it to produce various parts of the V15. To make it stand out from the crowd the V15 features a unique design theme along with the exclusive colour scheme. These details define the character of the premium commuter.
The 2018 Bajaj V15 features a 55/60W DC headlamp with Auto Headlight On (AHO) feature. The instrument cluster holds an analogue speedometer on the left warning lights on the right. The “V” logo is featured on the newly added backrest and the well-chiselled fuel tank. Tail lamp employs LED for illumination.
