Yesterday, we saw the first spy shots and a spy video of the upcoming Bajaj electric scooter that will arrive under the Urbanite brand. Today, PowerDrift has published the first spy shots of the front-end of the vehicle.

As seen in the sketches that were leaked in February, the first Urbanite scooter will feature retro styling. The front fascia will include a headlight in a pentagon shape with curved lines that hits a balance between retro and modern styling. While it isn’t clearly visible from the photograph, we expect to see full LED headlight on the upcoming electric two-wheeler. The front blinkers will be installed on the apron.
Closer inspection also reveals a disc brake at the front – a feature that was not seen on the leaked sketches. A front disc brake will most likely be available optionally. The safety net will include CBS/ABS tech as standard.
The previous spy images of the Bajaj Urbanite scooter had revealed a split style LED tail light and backlit switchgear – features that are seen on Bajaj range of motorcycles - as well as the pillion grab rail design with a thicker centre portion. The aforementioned leaked sketches and spy video have shown show a circular shape for the instrument console. The scooter may come equipped with a fully digital display. The rear-view mirrors, as seen in the sketches and the new spy shots, are in a triangular shape to further enhance the retro styling of the scooter. Expect to see chrome highlights on them and various other parts. An under-seat USB port for charging smartphones is also expected.
The scooter in the leaked sketches had a conventional exhaust. Thus, it is safe to assume that the Bajaj Urbanite brand will spawn internal combustion as well as electric powered scooters. Both scooters will feature retro styling. A single-sided front suspension with anti-dive and multi-spoke alloy wheels are visible in the spy shots of the electric model.
