Bikes > Bajaj > Chetak > Bajaj Chetak

Launched in 1972. Chetak is not in production now.

For Indians, scooter means nothing but their own Bajaj Chetak only. This renowned scooter served as a car for many families. The father, mother and the two children traveling on a Chetak was an every day scene in all Indian villages as well as cities.

This particular scooter was probably one of the longest running model for Bajaj from 1972 to 2009. It was then discontinued due to the rising competition from bikes of other brands and also from Bajaj as well. “Chetak” is named after the legendary war-horse of Indian warrior 'Rana Prathap Singh'. This particular horse stood for bravery and hard work. The famous tag line of Bajaj, “Hamara Bajaj” is also associated with Chetak.

This 145 cc scooter was originally based on the Vespa Sprint from the Italian company Piaggio. In 1980 this design was replaced with an all new in-house design. In meantime the licensed copy of Vespa PX 150 was also introduced in the market by their chief competitor LML, in the form of LML NV.

Chetak used a 145.45 cc petrol engine capable of delivering 7.5 bhp of raw power @ 5500 rpm and a maximum torque of 10.8 Nm @ 3500 rpm. Engine is mated with a 4-speed gearbox. The gear is shifted using, twist-shift mechanism within the handlebar. The front and rear brakes uses 150 mm drum brakes and the suspension system consists of variable rate coil in front and rear part. With a wheelbase of 1230 mm and a weight of 103 kg, this big scooter can hit a top speed of 85 kmph.

Chetak was the most affordable as well as the most desired mode of transportation in the late 19th century. It has been more than 15 years since it was discontinued. Like all other oldies, this one too is a good mover in second hand markets.

I have a 2002 Legend and a Chetak. I love them both but the Chetak has that vintage look. The ride of the Chetak is a bit less refined than the Legend. Still has plenty of get up and go. The pres of our local scooter club has 25k on his original Chetak motor. You cannot go wrong with a Bajaj scooter! Both models have been a pleasure to work on.

we have a bajaj chetak 1999 model which was
purchased by my dad during my child hood and i used to go out with my father and I enjoied the trips. Now I am studying B.Tech.Mech. The vehicle is very much comfirtable for family ride. I request BAJAJ to re start to produce the BAJAJ CHETAK with 150cc manual transmission for loving people like me and to create a demand.

I had purchased bajaj chetak in 2000. It is very special for me since it is my first vehicle out of my earnings. It is now almost 16 ys old and my sweet memories are associated with it since I had roamed around in and around Guwahati where I was posted by my Bank. very good condition till now and also no manitance for my work horse. It is providing 50 mileage. I would never sell this scooter even though I hardly ride it for few years. Very sturdy yet lighter in weight as compared to Honda Activa which has smaller engine.
