We have spotted new details about the seat profile, switchgear, tank design and more

(Update: Here’s our analysis on what we know so far about the upcoming Bajaj CNG bike.)

Bajaj CNG bike spied testing

Quite a few upcoming Bajaj bikes are in the pipeline to be launched this year and one of them, the Bajaj CNG bike, has recently been spotted testing again. 

The CNG bike has been spotted alongside a Bajaj Platina 110. This means Bajaj was benchmarking the CNG bike against the Platina, so expect the performance to be equivalent to that of a 110cc petrol-powered bike. That said, the displacement of the CNG bike could be higher in order to extract 110cc petrol-bike-levels of performance as CNG is not as power dense as petrol. The seat profile is quite long and as flat as possible to accommodate the CNG cylinder underneath and there’s a large panel gap on the fuel tank, which could be a large lid that opens to access the CNG tank’s valve. 

Bajaj CNG bike spotted for the first time

The upcoming bike probably get a smaller petrol tank as well, to be used whenever the CNG runs out. We have spotted a blue switch on the left switchgear and according to us, it could be used to switch between the CNG and petrol modes. The bike gets a fully digital instrument console (likely to be LCD), raised handlebar, heel and toe shifter and mid-set footpegs suggesting an upright riding posture. The handlebar is also braced and it gets hand guards for a rugged look. It gets a front disc and a rear drum brake setup, along with a telescopic fork and a monoshock. The alloy wheel design is similar to when the bike was spotted earlier and the bike also gets an upswept exhaust on the right hand side. 

The upcoming CNG bike from Bajaj will be launched in the next few months (between April and June 2024) and will likely be priced around the Rs 80,000 (ex-showroom) mark. It will be India’s first CNG bike, which means there will not be any direct rivals. However, it goes up against other fuel-efficient 100-110cc bikes like the Hero Splendor Plus, TVS Radeon, Honda Shine 100, and also Bajaj Platina 110.
