The Bajaj V12 is the latest addition from Bajaj in the commuter bike segment and the 125cc motorcycle has been priced at Rs 56,283 (ex-showroom, Delhi)
After tasting success with the Bajaj V15, it was inevitable for Bajaj Auto to cash in on this positive momentum. What made the V15 a hit among the commuter buyers was the fact that it was offered at the price of a 125cc motorcycle while having a displacement of 150cc along with its café-racer inspired styling. Now, Bajaj has launched the second bike under the “V” family, the new V12. Pricing for the V12 was announced last month and it carries a sticker price of Rs 56,283 (ex-showroom, Delhi) which makes it almost Rs 6,000 cheaper than the V15. While the Rs 6,000 difference might not seem much but in the fiercely contested commuter segment, consumers are cost conscious and every rupee is significant.
Specifications of the new Bajaj V12 have been posted online by the Chakan-based two-wheeler giant. The new motorcycle is powered by a 124.5cc, single-cylinder motor, delivering 10.7PS at 7,500rpm and a peak torque of 11Nm at 5,500rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear-wheel via a 5-speed gearbox. Cosmetically, the new V12 looks similar to its 150cc sibling, except for V12 badge, fork gaiters and the smaller 110-section rear tyre that are exclusive to the bike. Bajaj has only provided drum brakes on both ends and disc brake isn’t available even as an optional extra. Also, the tyres aren’t tubeless as seen on the V15 and mileage figures for the V12 will be around 60kmpl. The new Bajaj V12 will compete against the Honda CB Shine SP, TVS Phoenix 125 and the Hero Glamour. We will be riding the new Bajaj 125cc motorcycle in the third week of January.
