The Bajaj V15 executive commuter with a retro classic design appeal is all set to be launched in Nepal. The news was confirmed by a Bajaj dealer in the nation’s capital.
The Bajaj V15 commands a premium in India for its patriotic element – the inclusion of metal salvaged from INS Vikrant naval aircraft carrier. The battleship played a crucial role in the Indo-Pak war of 1971.
Bajaj is marketing the V15 as a limited production model until the metal runs out (expected to last for 2 years of production before losing its special value). So we wonder, why would the company waste the special ingredient of the motorcycle by shipping it to a market where it bears no emotional quotient? Having said that, it remains to be seen whether the export spec V15’s fuel tank gets the metal from INS Vikrant or not.
While Bajaj can’t woo buyers with the emotional quotient in Nepal, the V15’s unconventional looks and proven mechanical bits would be the primary selling points. The motorcycle features dual-tone color themes, a semi-long slung stance, and color-coordinated pillion seat cover.
