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.

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.
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
The bike doesn't have good power over 50 -55 kmph speed it starts vibrating on foot peg , seat , handle bar and everywhere . And beyond 60kmph the vibration gets really uncomfortable to drive . The seat height is low so it's very easy to use and commute in city . But it is really not for the youth . 40 years + age people will have fun ride riding it . Because below 50 km on the bike performed really good .
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 good between 70-80km/h vibration above 80km/h not that much hard to achieve 100km/h service cost is low,easy to maintain, styling is good with cowl headlight is powerful brakes are ok disc perform quite well if they offer same power as they offer in pulsar it is definitely the best bike in 150 cc segment.
Bajaj’s second offering in its ‘V’ Series is a smaller 125cc commuter. Here’s what it feels like to ride
Can the new Bajaj V15 which has been positioned by Bajaj as a premium commuter bike upstage the premium variant of the highest selling 125cc motorcycle in India?
Bajaj got the marketing spot on with the new V15 motorcycle. But can the new 150cc motorcycle deliver similar performance on the tarmac?
