Bajaj has unveiled a big part of its range for this year – the 2018 V12 and V15. Both the V range bikes (with and without disc brake option) now feature a pillion backrest.
The new backrest sits on extended grab rails and uses a black cushion. We spoke to a few dealers and they told us that the backrest can be retrofitted to older models of both bikes. The retrofitted backrest will set you back around Rs 1,200. Barring the backrest, the motorcycles remain visually and mechanically unchanged.
The black, blue and red colour schemes are carried over and with same decals. Instrumentation, headlamps and tail-lights are also the same. There are no changes mechanically, with the V12 using a 124.5cc engine that makes 10.5hp and 11Nm of torque, and the V15 using a 149.5cc mill that produces 12hp and 13Nm of torque. The V15 continues to be equipped with a front disc as standard, while the V12 has it as an optional extra.
Interestingly, the V12 and V15 are part of Bajaj’s one-year free insurance offer, with each model benefitting with savings worth Rs 1,500. However, these prices are for Delhi and may, hence, differ across the country as they are provided at the discretion of the Bajaj dealer.
