About V12

The Bajaj V12 is a scaled down version of the company's popular premium commuter – the V15. While it carries over most of styling cues, at the heart of the V12 is a 125cc engine which makes it a rival to the Hero Glamour, Honda CB Shine, Yamaha Saluto, TVS Phoenix and the Suzuki Slingshot+.
The Bajaj V12 gets a neo-retro look thanks to the muscular fuel tank, trendy removable rear cowl and the chrome-rimmed headlamp, all borrowed from the V15. However, a few bits like the alloy wheels and the instrument cluster have been revised to cut cost. It rides on tubed tyres in place of tubeless ones on the V15, while the aluminium finish on a few componensts have been replaced with a gloss black finish.
Powering the V12 is a 125cc single-cylinder engine, delivering 10.5bhp and 11Nm of torque. Unlike its rivals in the price range, the V12 gets a five-speed gearbox. However, a front disc brake is an option now. The engine has been tuned to offer ample torque in the low-end and mid-range. Efficiency is also a priority considering the target audience. The V12 is offered in four paint schemes – blue, red, black and white. The V12 is priced at Rs 58,300 for the drum brake version and Rs 61,000 for the disc brake version (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
