In December 2016, Bajaj Auto announced a 125 cc version called Bajaj V12 and launched it in January 2017. The Bajaj V12 gained a front disc brake version earlier this month.

The USP of Bajaj V is the use of metal from INS Vikrant in its fuel tank, which was independent India’s first aircraft carrier. The marketing idea clicked, and the Bajaj V15 sold 1 lakh units in the first 120 days in the market, with riders feeling that they brought home a piece of Indian history.
