Vishal purchased the motorcycle from a seller on OLX for INR 25,000. The motorcycle is a Rajdoot Deluxe 175 which uses a stock 175 single-cylinder engine and body panels. The most standout feature of the motorcycle is the bright yellow paint that ensures that the Rajdoot Deluxe 175 is noticed everywhere it goes. The yellow paint occupies the front mounting panels, fuel tank and on the sides. The chrome finish to the fuel tank adds some contrast to the looks and avoids from making the motorcycle look monotonous. The chrome logo on the side panel looks neat and premium.

The white front and rear fenders gel well with the bright yellow paint. The fascia includes a round headlight with a grille to protect the glass. The tall set front fender hints that the motorcycle may have been used for occasional off-roading.

Stock body panels and saddle ensures that the Rajdoot looks retro. The stock suspension at the front further enhances its classic persona. The seat has a hump between the rider and pillion area with a belt that runs over the top. The rear features a rack to mount some luggage to the motorcycle.

The engine continues to run in factory tune and the 175cc, single-cylinder, 2-stroke engine paired to a three-speed gearbox. Braking department comprises drum units on both wheels.

Some chrome bits such as the rear blinker housing and the wheels need a bit of polish to bring them back to their original glory but Vishal’s newly purchased Rajdoot is quite a stunner.
