Doing a quick reminder on India’s first aircraft carrier, the INS Vikrant started life as the HMS Hercules in 1943 for the British Royal Navy commissioned during World War II. Interestingly the new Bajaj ‘V’ range is claimed to be made from the metal of the INS Vikrant, an Indian warship, which was used during the 1971 Indo-Pak war. The all-new bike will also carry a special logo to commemorate India’s first aircraft carrier that was scrapped in 2014. Having played important roles in the 1961 Goa liberation as well as the Indo-Pak war of 1971, the aircraft carrier was eventually decommissioned in 1997 and was preserved as a museum from thereon. When dismantled last year, Bajaj purchased the Vikrant metal and processed it to be a part of its new motorcycle, thereby preserving a significant part of the military history.
Bajaj V instrument cluster is expected to be an all-analog one with a speedometer, tachometer, trip-meter, odometer and a fuel gauge. The front suspension of Bajaj Valor would be a telescopic setup with twin shock absorbers are the rear end.
Bajaj Auto has announced to introduce the Bajaj V brand on February 1, 2016.
Bajaj V 150 is expected to be priced around INR 60,000.
