About Bajaj V15

The Bajaj V15 could be your option, if you want to stand out in the clutter of the 150cc commuter motorcycles. Its flamboyant styling surely makes heads turn and Bajaj’s cut-throat pricing makes it a great bargain in its segment. For that tempting price tag you have to compromise on engineering finesse and performance. But what you get is a real-world fuel economy of close to 55 kmpl, good ride quality, and a proud piece of Indian history in the form of the INS Vikrant's metal.

Bajaj V15 Overview

Bajaj will soon be launching the V15 Power Up. This new model makes 13PS and 13Nm of torque which is 1PS and 0.3Nm more than the current V15. While mechanically the rest of the bike remains unchanged, it gets new and larger graphics.The Bajaj V15 has been positioned as a 150cc commuter offering and the fuel tank has been crafted using metal from INS Vikrant, the country's first aircraft carrier.
It has a 149cc air cooled motor that makes 12PS and 12.7Nm of torque. The bike comes with a dual cradle frame and has 33mm front forks and dual rear gas charged shock absorbers. It gets 18-inch front and 16-inch rear alloy wheels fitted with tubeless tyres. Braking is via a 240mm front disc and 130mm rear drum. We expect Bajaj to launch the V15 with a single channel ABS soon.
The V15 will compete with the Honda Unicorn 150 and Hero Achiever 150.

Q. Is it comfortable for long rides, like 100 KMs non stop? And how is gear shifting? I have heard some problems in 2 or 3 gear - V15?
  • HI Vinayak! Yes it is very comfortable for a long ride with a wide seating and handle bar angle which you can adjust accordingly based on your preference. Gear shifting is slipping sometimes. Stuck in free position. But that's normal if you push the gear lightly. Just make sure you use specified engine oil as recommended by the factory or of better quality. Just remember the bike is for leisure ride at 100km/hr normal speed, and can go to 110km/hr in short period for overtaking. If you intent to drive it at higher speed, just be prepared to spend some money for modification. Engine oil circulation to the top section of the engine block is very poor. Thats all I can say for now.
  • Actually It is very comfortable for any of the long rides without a pillion seat. with pillion it may feel heavy and exhausting after a quite a time. Gear shifter feels sometimes twitchy in heavy traffic. The gear ratios for this motorcycle have been kept small by bajaj, so we have to shift gears at lower speeds. we can not stretch or rev too much for any of the gear. it's best to shift gears in shorter speed ranges and speed up in fourth and fifth gears.
  • Honestly I suggest for city commutes. As comfort in this vehicle is not bad I have driven 130km a single stretch, But I never received comfortable ride on this. Gears Bajaj has a s****d mechanism 40% of time it goes false netural, gear range very very low after 60kmph vehicle starts crying out loud of an extra gear. But vehicle harshly reved never notices that cry for the extra gear.2nd to 3rd gear never felt any major issues gliding there

  • Wow dude, did you buy your bike from a Chinese shop? I use V15 for 3 yrs now, never had to do any of the things you have listed. I too ride at 100 KMPH + and have taken multiple long trips along with my wife on my bike

Q. I like V15 model and design and planning to purchase it. But my friend say that engine is not much powerful as 150 should have. Is it right. Please comment on it.
  • Well, then tell your friend that he should stop confusing people without knowledge. V15 has one of the most balanced and fuel efficient engine in the 150 CC segment. Add to it the low maintenance in comparison to other brands. I am using this bike for over 3 years and I would strongly recommend this to anyone unless they fall into one of the following category: 1) Overweight riders will experience handle vibration because of a flaw in design, normal wight people won't realise this. 2) Riders who want to ride at persistent speeds on 105 and above. Around 105, the engine starts showing signs of stress. I personally never had any problems riding with a pillion at a persistent speed between 95 - 100 for over an hour. Hope this helps...
  • I purchased the bike due to the same reason as yours even though my wife strongly objected to it because she knows of my riding attitude. The key here is the pricing compared to other models with the same cc which costs much higher. If I need to replace the engine with a more powerful one as told by your friend, the total cost would be cheaper. Else I would have bought Yamaha R15 or R25.
  • Don't purchase i did this mistake its not a power full bike

    nice bike but meanwhile after 2 years maintainence cost getting high spending more than 30k for maintainece where I bought bike for 72k.. it's awesome for ride look very stylish.. where I using daily travelling minimum 30 km to 40 in a day. its usual when I travel too much most problem you can face like chainpacket.. some time you cant able to recognise petrol meters.. usual bike got normal pickup not too much impressive and m not keen to run so speed very very moment i tried maximum speed whwhich is 80. bike will shake when you cross above 80 it will take max 100 if you keep moving.. road grip is quite low where I faced fearistic moment when I crossing in the curves in little high speed .. some times experienced back pain who sits behind now I have changed and altered seat which is quite ok.. overall it's good bike if you use for office to home... rough use no problem but it will increase maintenance cost.

    Bajaj V15 is wonderful daily commuter bike. I love riding it because of its agility and manoeuvrability. It has a good road presence and attraction. I"ve done some rigorous and hard-core interstate rides like Kaza, Himachal to Delhi via Shimla in 24 hours continuously and my bike still runs well. I keep riding around for long tours and it has not created any problem as such. However there"s a little minor pickup lag due to its heavy rear tyre and heavy fuel tank with a capacity of 13 litres. The gear does creates some problem while down shifting which can be minimised with proper chain adjustments.

    It generates optimum Noise only on a medium speed of 55-60 Km. per hour. It appears that Engine is doing a1very very hard work to reach a speed of only 55 to 60 km. per hour. How poor performance of Engine after a1huge expensive Advertisement. It is really Shameful to Team engaged in Programming such worthless product.

    Bike is hardy and here are the pros and cons based on my 2yrs of experience:-Pros----------- Great cafe racer looks- Hardy body- No performance trouble in long trips. I have gone non stop at 126 kms between 95 and 105 KMPH- Strong engine- Good grunt.Cons---------- Extreme vibration at 3rd gear for heavy riders as front gets lighter than the rear.- Uncomfortable seat for long drives- Mileage is around 40kmpl against the company claim of 60kmpl- No gear indicator is a problem- Fuel indicator is unreliable
