Bajaj V15

Complete details of V15 Motorcycle

Launched in India in February 2016. V15 is not in production now. Discontinued in 2019.

Bajaj V15 is made from the scrap metal of India's first aircraft carrier INS Vikrant. This warship was used in Indo-Pak war of 1971. In 2014 this ship was scrapped for steel and the fuel tank assembly of V15 is made from this. This 150cc motorcycle is the beginning of new commuter series from Bajaj motorcycles, which will be revealed in years to come. V15 is entirely different from all other 150cc class motorcycles from Bajaj. The new styling comprises a cafe racer attitude as well as an urban commuter.

The main attraction of this bike is the new trapezoidal headlamp with efficient brightness and the new sculpted fuel tank. Both these are standout features of the motorcycle. Megaphone style exhaust kit, multi spoke alloy wheels and new painting scheme are spot on highlights. The rear section of V15 comprises a well designed handle bar and LED tail lamps. The optional rear seat cowl too is fashionable. This can be removed just by using an allen key. The 149cc engine produces 12PS power @ 7,500 rpm and 13Nm torque @5,500 rpm with a 5-speed gear box. Bajaj guarantees a mouth watering 75 kmpl mileage and a top speed of 109 kmph.

First Impression Review

Bajaj launched their brand new commuter segment 'V15' in the year 2016. The 'V' in the V15 stands for the iconic warship INS Vikrant, which had played a keen role in the victory of 1971 Indo-Pak war. The metal parts of V15, especially the fuel tank is made from the scrapped metal parts of Vikrant when it was decommissioned in 1997.

The Design and Styling
It was a brilliant at the same time a bold move by Bajaj to develop V15. The Bajaj V15 doesn't look like any other 125 0r 150cc motorcycle that we had seen on the roads. Unlike other motorcycles, we cannot classify this bike into a particular category. It does have traits of a cruiser from the front, cafe racer from behind and shape of a retro-inspired motorcycle from sides. The large trapezoidal headlamp, neo-classical tail light and the large muscular fuel tank are the exquisite features that make V15 a superb motorcycle. In order to give a rich-premium feel, the fuel tank of V15 is decorated with a unique 'V' badge.

Bajaj V15 Console

The Bajaj V15 gets premium textured seats. Moreover, a rear seat cowl stimulates cafe racer kind of feel to this motorbike. One can easily replace the cowl and use it as pillion seat. Instrument console of the V15 looks neat and elegant. It displays analogue speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge and battery warning lamp. Moreover, the fuel refilling cap gets a unique 'INS Vikrant' badging as a homage to the vessel.

The Engine
This motorcycle is powered by 149.5cc, single cylinder, air cooled DTS-i engine delivering a maximum power of 12 Ps @ 7500 rpm and peak torque of 12.7 Nm @ 5500 rpm. The engine is mated to 5-speed gearbox found in the entire Pulsar range. It also features a new silencer delivering a punchy exhaust note. The weight to power ratio of the bike is also good, making it as a mature motorcycle.

Bajaj V15

Suspension, Chassis and Braking
It features 33 mm diameter solid front forks and Nitrox gas filled twin shocks at the rear enables the rider to travel anywhere. A 240 mm disc brake at the front and 130 mm drum brake at the rear complete the braking duties of V15. The whole bike is built around the solid muscular frame, which provides the extra toughness required to go beyond the tarmacs.

Bajaj V15

The Verdict
Altogether, it is a brave attempt by the Bajaj bi-wheelers to develop an off-beat motorcycle. The makers had deployed a new paint scheme as well as design culture to this machine. However, it doesn't have that extra element to lure the young riders. Rather, it is for senior and bit more composed category of people as day to day commuter.

Really a big stupidity on the name of nation pride. Gear, engine, body, lamp, kick seat everything is going out of expectations and news i heard before dealing. Worst range. M/s Bajaj should think what they had given to us. Within four month i m feeling.. Bus aur nahi. Lol 😁 choice was my but it was really very poor.

The V15 is a great initiative from Bajaj. It pays tribute to the INS Vikrant and in effect the sovereignty of our nation. Equally important is the message of indigenous production. Countries like Japan, Sweden, and Germany earn respect all over the world because of their contribution towards science and technology. In order to make our country truly great, innovation must come from within. The Bajaj group has been making in India long before 'Make In India' and hence they are the best people to honour our country's legacy.

I purchased V15 on April 8th 2016 at Sri Siddi Vinayaka Showroom, Begumpet, Hyderabad. For the first two days it was fine and then started showing the list of problems in it
1) Poor Pickup - On any gear it doesn't feel like a 150cc bike(not even close to a 110cc bike)
2) Gear Shifting Problem - sometimes gears doesn't shift well and they make disgusting noise when changing.
3) Exhaust Sound (Beating) - The beating which is there for the initial two days is completely changed and now it sounds like a bike which is 5 years old. Completed disgusting and annoying. It is not the original beating like when it was new.
4) Engine - Every time when you raise the bike on any gear there seems to be a annoying sound from the engine which is not so audible (you have to observe it carefully). I can easily say that this engine not for long lasting. Hardly it will last for two years.
5) Mileage - One of the worst problem i am facing now. Can you believe a 150cc bike which has no proper power, no performance just like the other 150cc bikes but still it is not giving a mileage of 40KMPL. As of now the mileage is below 40.
6) Pillion seat - When you remove the rear seat cowl and sit on it while some one is riding, you can easily slip back and may fall down. Not at all comfortable for the pillion
7) Side indicator's doesn't make sound when they are in use, just like the other bikes. Then just simply blink.
8) Fuel gauge - The digital fuel gauge which is completely useless , sometimes it shows four points and the very next minute they reduce to two points.
9) Service - The showroom guys are completely reckless and irresponsible. I have explained all the above to them with in one week (15th april 2016) but they are not answering to any of the question properly. They simply say "Go to service center" or "Wait for the first service, initially the bike will be like this only".
