Bike variant reviewed for: Bajaj V
Year of Manufacture: 2015 | Driven no. of Kms. : 230
Pros: Value for money.
Cons: Fuel gauge meter is based on LED which is not quick and accurate.
Gear shifting (up and down) is not smooth but this the story of all bajaj bikes.
It has Eurogrip tubeless tyres which is product of stupid TVS company. Poor cutting on the types front and rear both that is not antiskid. Not at all good material. Bajaj saved money here.
First of all let me tell you this is my honest review after buying this bike:
Good bike in 72k on road in Delhi. I have bought this on 6th June 16 and just run 230 km in local. I will give you next review update after first service and in future to.
I had bajaj discover 125 earlier and used for 11 years and ran 1,50,000 km.
Bike has very good sound.
It has good shockers for local broken roads. Give you pleasure riding on patches on the road without reducing rev.
Nice and stable balancing to switch between vehicles and changing lane while riding.
Average: You will be shocked to know, I am getting 68 kmpl avg. From reserve to reserve mode. I didn't cross the 40 kmph speed as engine is new and will be running it as it is till 500 km.
Though I had bajaj discover 125 earlier with had all the gears up at front but this V15 has gear up at back on the gear leaver. I am taking time to be habitual of this.
Bike comes with 5 gears speed. You will be surprised that all gears applies up to 40 kmph. It means the sweet spot for 5th gear is between 35 to 45 kmph. You feel the gear movements while shifting gear up and down which is the problem with most Bajaj's bike.
Side stand is very light which should be heavy with hard spring.
