We brought to you the details of the new Bajaj Boxer 150 a few days back. While we had some info and pics back then, we didn’t have any official communication from Bajaj in that regard. Now we have received the official images, specs and details of the bike, exclusively on Motoroids.
The new Boxer 150 is powered by a 144.8 cc single cylinder air cooled engine with peak power output of 12.01PS at 7500 rpm and peak torque output of 12.26 Nm at 5000 rpm. Carburetion is taken care of by a Ucal UVD20unit. The bike has a four speed transmission with an all down shift pattern. The bike comes with electric start as a standard fitment.
Front wheel of the bike is shod with a 3.00 x 17 spec tyre while 100/90 x 17 rubber does duty at the rear. 130mm drum brakes do stopping duty both at the front as well as the rear wheel.
Bajaj is focusing at the rural market with the new Boxer. The bike is meant to handle the ‘tough terrain outside the cities’ according to a company statement. Bajaj Auto have tried and made the bike as strong as possible to be able to endure the rigors of the rural lifestyle and conditions. A rugged chassis + swing arm, use of metal in most parts and twin spring SNS suspension together work towards offering additional ruggedness.
The bike is priced at Rs 42000 ex-showroom. Click here to read our earlier post which had more pictures and some additional details on the bike.
Here’s the official press release, followed by the specification sheet
Brings Power to the People with the mighty 150cc ‘Bharat Bike’ at Rs 42,000 only
Positioned as the ‘Bharat’ bike, the Boxer is designed to provide a comfortable riding experience in all kind of demanding situations and to reach out to customers beyond the big cities and towns.
The new Boxer is the first of its kind – designed for use and abuse in all kinds of terrain. Conventional 100 cc bikes perform adequately on smooth roads but are not geared to handle the tough terrain outside the cities. The Boxer’s 150cc engine delivers 12 Ps power and 12.26 Nm torque – nearly 50% more than the standard 100 cc’s – to make a demanding commute with any kind of load and on any kind of terrain situation far easier. The bike boasts of host of other strength advantages in terms of its rugged frame, swing arm and chassis, metal body parts, twin spring SNS suspension and a heavy duty carrier. The wider tyre ensures both grip and stability for any road and load condition.
What more the Boxer 150 with an electric start sports an attractive price tag of Rs 42,000 – a customer can now a own a 150 cc at the price less than that of most 100cc bikes.
This launch is a part of our strategy of providing relevant differentiated products to meet the needs of a variety of consumers. A significant segment of consumers in the smaller towns need a powerful, rugged utility bike. The Boxer has been designed as an “SUV on two wheels” to specifically meet their requirement.
The focus of the bike is on performance with a bigger engine, a bigger frame, bigger tyres, bigger suspension, bigger headlights and a bigger seat, we feel that this one fits the bill for the mighty “Bharat” bike that the real India needs.”
Currently smaller 100cc bikes are dominant in the towns and villages across the country. This big Bharat bike with a bigger heart provides Bajaj Auto with a huge opportunity to attract consumers looking out for a safe comfortable ride on the roughest of roads.
