The Bajaj V15 has been spotted in Malaysia signalling that the Bajaj Dominar 400 launch in the country may be pushed to a later date.

Set to be introduced in collaboration with Malaysian two-wheeler maker Modenas, the Bajaj V15 could be the third motorcycle, the other two confirmed as the Bajaj Pulsar 200NS and Bajaj Pulsar RS200. This also means that the Bajaj Dominar 400 may be launched at a later date in Malaysia.

The Bajaj V15’s key selling point in India is the use of metal from the INS Vikrant in the fuel tank. While that may have helped Bajaj Auto garner a healthy sales volume and the differentiating factor in India, it will be interesting to see what the marketing is in Malaysia.
