Bajaj has confirmed the new motorcycle from its stables that would join the V brand, the V12. The new motorcycle was confirmed by Eric Vas, President (Motorcycle Business), Bajaj Auto at an event recently held in Mumbai. The motorcycle, which has already started rolling off the production line, will be launched in December 2016 and will be priced at INR 56,200 (ex-showroom Delhi).
The motorcycle will come equipped with a 125cc engine which will be a scaled down version of the V15’s motor. The 124.6cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine on the V12 will deliver 11 PS of power at 8,000 RPM and 10.8 Nm of torque at 5,500 RPM.
Visually, the motorcycle is not likely to look much different than the V15. So expect to see same trapezoidal headlamp and curvy design. Being a V series motorcycle, the V12 will also receive from the scrapped metal of INS Vikrant. But unlike the V15, the V12 will not receive the rear cowl and will come equipped with a different set alloy wheels.
The V15, dimensionally, measures 2,044 mm in length, 780 mm in width and 1,070 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 1,315 mm. Ground clearance is rated at 165 mm, while kerb weight stands at 135.5 kg. These dimensions are likely to be carried to the V12 as well.
