Launched earlier this year, the Bajaj V12 looked like a potent commuter with just one missing feature when compared to its competititors. Looks like customer feedback did not go unnoticed because Bajaj is now offering the V12 with a front disc brake.
The front brake is a 240-mm disc while the rear has the same 130-mm drum as before. The disc-brake variant is priced at Rs.60,00 (Ex-showroom, Delhi), around Rs.3000 more expensive than the standard drum brake version. Bookings for the same have commenced at the dealerships.
The Bajaj V12 uses the same components as the V15, but gets a black painted mudguard, revised paint stripe on the fuel tank and slimmer tube-type tyres. The telescopic forks are slimmer as well at 30 mm, while the instrument cluster misses out on the LED tell-tale lights. The V12 uses a 13 litre fuel tank and has a kerb weight of 133 kg.
