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.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying V15 Power Up

Q. Does This bike has any type of vibration - V15?
  • At first it vibrate like hell above 80km/hr. Almost lost control of the bike. After slight tightening of the biggest bolt next to the ignition switch, it felt much better. CAn even use only one hand at 100km/hr.
  • I am riding bikes for 18 yrs. I can confidently vouch for it, you will experience lesser vibrations while riding a bullock cart or1tractor than this bike. This bike can surely claim the top reward in terms of vibrations. Good thing is, you can never get it solved once you own this.
  • Yes, the bike has little vibration problem only if you ride above 70 kmph. Its not a major problem but very little vibration kick in at high speeds. Otherwise the bike is pretty smooth with a good exhaust note.

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.
  • Hey there! Yes, you can take Bajaj V15 for long rides. I have been riding around for quite a time now, including the 900 km Ride in 24 hours which I did, with only little tea and pee breaks. You can easily cruise at the speed of 80 kph and can touch 100 kph too while overtaking. However its not a bike to cruise at 90 or 100 kph to be honest. It has shorter gear ratios. It performs well on the mountains too.
  • Its performance and comfortable in long ride is ok/average. Not bad.And no any problems/issues with gear shift.If you want to buy this bike you need to maintain its services accordingly.

Q. Which bike among Bajaj V15 and Unicorn is better?
  • Hey there, both are good bikes in the 125- 150 cc segment. They both are great commuter bikes with decent average, however the Honda unicorn leads in average. Bajaj V15 has a slightly better pick-up and of course a good attractive look and feel to ride especially with a bulkier tank. The fuel capacity is also larger than on unicorn. The build quality of Honda seems to be better as evidently its a Japanese company. Overall if you want to go for a bike with decent mileage, looks great exhaust note and better fell of riding then go for Bajaj V15. If you only want a bike with good mileage, light-weight and hard built, go for unicorn.
  • Look, some people are biased on some brand positively or negatively. So, they would just say GOOD or BAD to all variants from the company of their bias. Ignoring that, I would say both bikes are equally good; though I would give V15 a small advantage due to its retro cafe racer looks which I find very appealing. I for one chose the V15 over Unicorn and after 2 years, I am happy with my decision because I don't take too much care of my bikes and yet this has not given me any trouble yet. Cost of spares and maintenance is also low
  • Hey! Well, both bikes have their own feasibility. V15 has a good manoeuvrability and an excellent balance & stance.Its better in terms of performance with an appealing exhaust note. V15 also looks pretty attractive and has more road presence. However Honda CB Unicorn has a more refined engine with less noise and is very smooth. It also feels lighter and small but does not have a great road presence. I'd suggest you to take a test ride.

Q. Which will be best choice in 150cc bike segment among Honda, Bajaj and Hero in term of performance, maintainance and price.
  • Hey there! Different bikes offer different deals. It basically depends on your need and feasibility. Honda bikes have one of the most refined engines with good build quality, but its pretty costly and even the spares are expensive. Their bikes cannot take the hard Indian roads beating(alloy bends often). Whereas Bajaj bikes are pretty rugged and can take good beatings. The are actually meant for Indian roads. The only drawback I feel is that they don't offer good service to their customers as they should. Hero bikes on the other hand are simple and not too costly, but they're not appealed much apart from their low cc segment bikes. Hero bikes offer an excellent mileage though. All bikes have their own pros and cons irrespective of any make. What you have to decide is what suits you best. Thanks

    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.
