The Bajaj V is currently produced at the manufacturer’s Pantnagar and Waluj plants. Over 2,500 units of the motorcycle were made last month with a plan of selling 50,000 units in the next 18 months. However, Bajaj is hoping to increase production to 1,000 units a day.

Bajaj has priced the V (V15) at INR 61,999, ex-Showroom, New Delhi and INR 62,820 ex-Showroom, Mumbai. However, sales of the Bajaj V are banned in New Delhi as the motorcycle is only BS-3 compliant (a new ruling dictates new two-wheelers to be BS-4 compliant to be eligible for registration in Delhi).

Aside from selling it in the domestic market, Bajaj also plans on exporting the V15 to markets in Africa, Latin America. West Asia and Turkey next financial year.
