Bajaj Auto has launched the new V15 Power Up variant in the country. The Bajaj V15 motorcycle was launched in back in February, 2016 and now the power up variant comes with a marginal increase in the power output and enhanced torque figure. The new Bajaj V15 Power Up will replace the V15 model. The new Power Up variant has been priced at Rs 65,700. The kerb weight of the bike stands to 137 kgs.
The V15 Power Up variant is dimensionally similar to its sibling V15, currently on sale. The new V15 Power Up will come with cosmetic modifications along with new colour options. Besides that the new motorcycle also features enhanced body graphics and a pillion backrest. Most importantly, the new V15 Power Up continues to carry the iconic ‘V’ plaque from the legendary INS Vikrant aircraft carrier. The unique design on the new power up variant makes it appropriate for city as well as town trips.
The new Bajaj V15 Power Up variant is powered by the air cooled 149.5 cc engine, which churns out a power of 12.8 bhp at 8,000 rpm and produces a peak torque of 13 Nm at 6,000 rpm. Therefore, it is clear that the power up variant makes 1 bhp power more and 0.3 Nm torque than the regular V15 model. A five speed gearbox comes coupled to the engine along with revised gearbox shifting pattern. The gearbox shifting pattern is now ‘one – down; four – up pattern’ while the regular V15 variant had an ‘all – up’ pattern. The discredit of the new Bajaj V15 Power Up Variant is that the company has failed to equip the bike with ABS. According to the new safety rule which will enforce from April 2019, all the two wheelers of and above 125 cc must come with atleast a single channel ABS feature. The new Bajaj V15 Power Up variant is likely to be the most affordable bike from Bajaj Auto to come with ABS. Bajaj Auto is yet to introduce ABS feature across a long range of its products before 1st April, 2019 to comply with the new safety norms.
