A few days ago (26th January) a teaser image was revealed on the web showcasing Bajaj’s new Bajaj V motorcycle brand. The Valor is the first motorcycle to debut under this new brand.
The V stands for Vikrant which is India’s first air – craft carrier a huge role in 1971 Indo – Pak war by not only deriving its brand name from it but also using the metal from the vessels remains.
The teaser which surfaced on the web shows a marine decal on the motorcycle which reads ‘’Made with invincible metal of INS Vikrant’’. The low slung motorcycle features retro classic styling with a bikini fairing, a long slender fuel tank, and low set handlebars completes the design.
Bajaj says they have enough raw materials to last for two years. The new bike will therefore preserve a significant piece of Indian Military history.
Power for the Valor V150 could be derived from the Discover 150F. The 14.3 bhp 150cc air cooled engine is mated to a 5 speed gearbox. Bajaj V brand or the Valor will co-exist with the Discover and will most likely be positioned above the Discover brand.
