The uniqueness of Bajaj V lies in the fact that it uses metal from INS Vikrant, which was independent India’s first aircraft carrier. The design of the motorcycle is also different from the run-of-the-mill commuters. The motorcycle comes with a 55/60 W DC headlamp with AHO feature. The instrument cluster houses an analogue speedometer on the left and tell-tale lights on the right. The pillion back rest bears a ‘V’ logo at the back, and the logo is present on the fuel tank as well. The tail lamp is LED. Bajaj unveiled the 2018 model recently.
