Spied – Bajaj RE60 continues testing, spotted with new alloy wheels

Posted on: Oct 30, 2013 - 12:47pm IST

The Bajaj RE60 continues to test on Indian roads. Unveiled at the 2012 Auto Expo in January last year, the quadricycle sparked a row of controversies and is yet to launch.

These images of the RE60 testing in Aurangabad were snapped by Indian Autos Blog reader, Mr. Abhishek Joshi. There appears to be a different set of alloy wheels on this test mule, compared to the versions that Bajaj has showcased in the past.

The Bajaj RE60 was unveiled at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo.

The RE60 is powered by a 200cc DTS-i engine, though Bajaj is yet to announce the power and torque outputs. Bajaj says that the quadricycle weighs 450kg and has a fuel efficiency of 35+ km/l. The top-speed is rated at 70km/h while the carbon dioxide emissions are rated at 60g/km.

As per our last update, quadricycles would be required to carry a ‘Q’ symbol on the front (unclear whether it would be required at the rear as well) and they will be restricted to commercial use only such as carrying goods and people on ‘non-highway’ stretches of cities and villages.

The passenger carrying quadricycle will be required to accommodate four passengers including the driver, while the goods carrying quadricycle can only carry a maximum payload of 550kg, apart from two passengers including the driver.

In its report, the Government has prohibited the usage of flexible materials such as resin, cloth and plastic for building the body of the quadricycle.

As of now, it remains unclear as to when the RE60 will launch.

    Do we really NEED this? Looks like another ‘mutant monster’ that will create havoc on our roads after the “auto rickshaw”.

      I will definitely buy this…I cannot afford car and I want a vehicle which is safer than Bike/Scooter. Which should be stable on road, and save me from Sun, Cold, Rain etc and should give great mileage. This car/Quadricycle definitely fits in my need. And there are millions of people in India who have same thoughts as me.

        Agree !! but nowadays even splendour Bike is seen like a TVS50, Very few like you think and buy for their purpose !! but well said its really a good and safe alternative to go anywhere at cheap cost still i find Parking and driving in congested city traffic the most hectic part in everyday travel !!

        go for a nano base model..
        its well engineered, safe and gives all ur priorities..
        these are craps meant for minting money for the makers..
        if there is a hit, we will see how this tin shrinks.. u & family will be more safe in nano (at the least)

        would you compromise your safety in a Quadricycle as only the standards of a 2/ 3wheeler are prescribed and does not have any Crash Test or roll over test prescribed
