    I have purchased v-12 in Feb 2017. But only looks is good otherwise every department its fail like performance, clutch plate required changing after 11000km , no pickup, mileage only 50km/ltr after long drive, in city only 40km/ltr, engine vibrate, gear shifting problem in 1st to 0. Small space, tail light and front bulb also fuse only 10000km. Chain tight every 500km. Quality not maintain and make us fool by bajaj. So i give only two star for looks.

    I would start the review from my bike delivery experience....

    the experience was good but the sales man was not that much interested in selling his bike ..Though the bike is high in demand these days ....

    The bike feel really good in riding ....

    However the sales man told me his own review that the bike keeps getting jerks while riding .... I also felt the same from the very first day.... Yes it takes jerks when you low down the throttle on speed breakers sometimes.... The bike is amazingly heavy in weight... However you will not feel this weight while riding on high speed... On high speed it is damn smooth ...However when you slow down the throttle after reaching 80+ ..You will feel the sound of the silencer really meaty and beefy type ... On 40 to 50 kmpl ...Sometime bike vibrates too much .... But when i take it more than 50kmpl it feels smooth again .... The breaking system is good enough but the drum breaks of the front tyre are not much good .... You may feel heaviness while breaking and using the front breaks... About the mileage ...I am using the bike since 1 month ...And i am getting around 52 to 55 kmpl ...Riding in both highway and city conditions ...Only on highway until the first service you will get more than 55kmpl.... When i ride the bike on high way on more than 70kmpl ... I feel the bike really stable and unlike the other bikes like shine, passion and glamour you feel more comfortable on high speeds as well comparing to other bikes.. About the pillion comfort... The pillion feels more comfortable then rider with the use the new back rest..Yes i got the back rest in the bike..??... I am 20 years old ...Bought the bike with my own money and i feel really proud to have this bike with me ..I commute daily 25 to 30 kms. . One more thing that you may feel regret some first days after getting the bike ...That you should have purchased any other bike like pulsar 135 ls , shine or glamour ..But believe me ..Those bike are not this much durable not even then have better riding experience than this ...Also you will feel those bikes in riding that you are riding 125cc but if you trust me ...The bajaj v12 is not a bike that feels like 125cc capacity ...When you ride it ...You feel like you are riding a mini avenger or bullet sometimes ....But even on the 5th gear you would feel that there is the need of 6th gear as the bike makes to much sound from the silencer on high speed... However the engine feels smooth on high speed..... So. Finally if you like to ride bike roughly then this bike is not made for you ...Better you go with 135ls or honda shine as their pick up is much better than this bike ... I purchased the bike for rs67000 gave 27000 as down and 4300 per month is my emi ... For 12 months ... And i am happy with the bike never feel regret .... Today i am going to get the bike serviced as its has run more than 600kms and its been 39 days when i purchased the bike ...Have a great day ahead ..Bye

    I am a proud owner of the bajaj v12 motorcycle!

    well; as we all know that the bajaj v series came with the motto of giving the great indian warship 'ins vikrant' a new life! i was most excited about the unique concept and the bike did not disappoint me any department when i took it for a test ride. You will notice one peculiar thing in my review, that i am calling this machine a 'motorcycle' and not a bike. It just does justice to the machine.

    Buying experience:

    i bought it from bajaj dealership in andheri, mumbai this year in march. The dealers were kind enough to give me a very fast delivery and believe it or not i set a trend by actually paying the entire cost of this motorcycle via digital mobile app! the final all inclusive cost of my unit came to inr 59000/- only.

    I chose the classic black with red stripes. This is by the way my very first motorcycle, hence i was not aware of the paper work or the documentation process but the dealership truly made this one a smooth experience for sure.

    Riding experience:

    the v12 rides with precise control, has great road grip and balance. The 125cc engine is adequately powered, neither too much power (as that was my mother's major concern for safety of my ride), nor too less of power that my friends would make fun of me!

    looks/styling & performance:

    i primarily use this motorcycle for my daily commute on the streets of mumbai which are a mix of smooth highways, small lanes, streets with pot holes of all shapes and sizes & those occasional water / oil spills on the road surface. Hence i can say with confidence that the v12 takes all these types of surfaces in its stride with equal ease.

    The motorcycle definitely is a head turner! the macho looks and the unique styling makes it stand out in the crowd and a second look is guaranteed for sure! the paint job is fabulous, the iconic v logo is my most favourite and i have to mention the exhaust, it looks and sounds mean! the v12 has 5 gears & all are on the upper side. (Just the new rider in me is talking)

    me being an average middle class maharashtrian boy, one thing that matters a lot to me is the running cost of the machine, and the v12 is impressive here as well. I almost consistently get 52 km for every litre of fuel! the tank can hold 13 litres and that can easily give me more than 600 kms on a full tank, making those dream cross country rides that i had in mind a reality!

    speaking of the long rides, the seat on the v12 is ergonomic and very comfortable. Am a average built, 5.7 Ft tall guy and i get a very good seating posture on the v12.

    Servicing and maintenance:

    bajaj being one of the most popular brands of our country, getting quick road side service from a mechanic & fixing minor issues is not a problem at all! i got this experience recently while i was riding in thane when i accidentally dropped my v12 while putting it on the stand, it suffered a few nicks but the local mechanic fixed them in a few minutes (i broke the mirror). The repair was light on the pocket as well! i rode the v12 at 110 kmph on the thane highway and it was a sheer joyful experience. (The top speed is 140 kmph)

    i love to take care of my machine and would service it regularly, however the v12 is a tough guy and doesn't need much pampering. Just the regular, washes, oil changes, filter cleaning and that should be good!

    i have now ridden the v12 for 4 months now & i can list more pros, than cons!

    pros:

    great styling. (Of course!)

    sturdy built.

    Great confidence & control while riding.

    Good balanced shocker (front wheel) & suspension (rear wheel)

    economical. (Purchase price as well as running cost)

    pride of owning a piece of history.

    Indian machine.

    Cons:

    no disk brake (does not matter that much actually)

    head light always on feature is missing. (I wish this was there)

    This bike has a very strong vibration at moderate to high rpm at every gear. At just after 35 kmph, the vibration can be felt. There is no pick up at all. Any overtaking is not possible. No trip meter. No tachometer. I have visited almost all bajaj service centres of guwahati. But getting no help. I have talked to other v12 owners also. Some even complaints frequent engine shut down. But i have not experienced engine stop problem till now.

Bajaj V12 Disc vs Honda CB Shine SP: Comparison Test

23 August 2017
Ranjan R. Bhat

Our previous comparison test between the CB Shine SP and the V15 gave us a prime example of how small commuter bikes have started punching above their weight. This time around, the CB Shine SP must prove its mettle against a more direct rival - the V12 Disc.

Bajaj V12 First Ride Review

18 January 2017
Ranjan R. Bhat

While the Bajaj V15 has had a good run, the mental block among customers that a 150cc motorcycle is more performance-oriented and less fuel efficient than a 125cc bike has given Bajaj’s rivals an edge. To counter this, Bajaj introduced the V12 to slot in between the...
