The website’s source reveals that the brand will position the new variant of the Bajaj V between the Bajaj CT100, Platina and the V15. Based on that information, it is possible that the upcoming bike will be a lower displacement version of the Bajaj V. This would enhance the affordability of the Bajaj V product family. Currently, the company sells the V12 at a festive price of INR 55,060 (INR 1,900 discount); and the V15 at INR 61,580 (down by INR 2,100). Both prices ex-showroom, New Delhi. In the previous financial year, Bajaj sold 2.34 lakh units of the V15 and V12.

The new products are expected to bolster the brand’s sales in this half of the fiscal. This month, Bajaj beat Eicher Motors in market capitalisation.
