Bajaj V12, the new 125cc premium commuter from Bajaj Auto has now officially gone on sale in India.
Priced at Rs 56,283 (ex-showroom, Delhi), Bajaj Auto silently put the new Bajaj V12 on sale back in December 2016.
Bajaj dealers in Mumbai and Pune have already started the deliveries of the bike. Now almost a month later the home-grown bike manufacturer has posted the price and specifications of the new Bajaj V12 on its website indicating an official launch.
The Bajaj V12 is essentially a downsized version of the Bajaj V15, the popular 150cc commuter bike in the V series which gets some metal from the decommissioned aircraft carrier INS Vikrant. The overwhelming market response to the V15 prompted Bajaj to introduce a bike in the 125cc space, which has proven to be a hot segment in India.
And now with the V12, Bajaj has a strong rival for the likes of Honda CB Shine SP, Hero Glamour 125, and the Yamaha Saluto.
