Why would I buy the Bajaj V12 Disc?
The Bajaj V12 Disc stands out in a crowd full of conservatively designed and stereotypical commuter motorcycles. Plus, the disc brake is an added bonus.
Why would I avoid the Bajaj V12 Disc?
Unconventional riding triangle and a stiff suspension setup. The Bajaj V12 Disc doesn’t have many features or technologies that it can boast of.
The Bajaj V12 has an interesting recipe - the eye-catchy and successful styling of the V15 combined with a smaller and efficient 125cc mill at its heart. While the Discover 125 is targeted at an audience looking for a conservative motorcycle, the V12 is aimed at someone looking for exclusivity and style. However, since it was launched in January, the Bajaj V12 has failed to match the numbers generated by its rival, or its elder sibling for that matter. With the aim of catering to a wider range of audience, Bajaj launched a new disc brake variant of the V12 a couple of months ago.
I wouldn’t go as far as calling it attractive, but the fact that the V12 is a conspicuous motorcycle is undeniable. Be it the well-publicised connection with INS Vikrant or the unconventional styling, the V12 grabs eyeballs everywhere it goes. This is a feat that a Discover, Honda CB Shine or the Hero Glamour can hardly pull off.
