Why to opt?
Bike refers to be the best mode of traveling, but when it comes to buying bikes then things are a little bit confused as there are several options available. This is a first class bike with inbuilt great features or specifications which makes it a great choice for all.
For power development, Bajaj has employed a new 149.5cc, single cylinder, four stroke, SOHC 2 valve, air-cooled DTS-i engine capable of generating maximum power output of 11.83 bhp at 7500rpm along with 13Nm at 5500rpm. The engine comes paired to a five-speed transmission. The bike does fairly well between 40 to 70 kmph, however, vibrations can be felt post 70 kmph leaving the engine fatigued. Carrying out suspension duties are telescopic forks in front and twin-spring gas-filled shock absorbers at the rear. The gear shifting is a tad clumsy, although it isn’t all bluntly rubbery, there is still some room for improvement here. The carburetted engine yields promising mileage of around 70 kmph which is imposing.
