Bajaj Company is set to present an all-new electric bike that will be called Urbanite. This is a new bike that is believed to work. Bajaj Urbanite Electric Scooter will be the first bike to be fully EV. Recently, it was announced by Mr. Nitin Gadkari that auto manufacturers would have to move on to electric vehicles, otherwise, they would not get a chance to survive in the Indian market. For these reasons, Bajaj Auto has already started working on the electric vehicles and the first set of Bajaj motorcycles is going to its debut in the upcoming year 2020. These new bikes are going to launch under the Urbanite brand. The electric scooter has been tested in Pune.
Bajaj Urbanite Electric Scooter
Bajaj is going to work on the performance motorcycle and the company has stepped back from manufacturing scooters and it turning itself as a motorcycle brand. In an interview with the Livemint, Rajeev Bajaj said that the new bike is in the works and will be called the Urbanite sub-brand. This new generation of bikes will not be manufactured for India only but also for the other markets as well. It will have a slew of the upcoming electric motorcycle in which Bajaj could be the first bike if they get involved in the performance biking.
Specifications of Bajaj Urbanite
Bajaj is working on an electric bike and it will perform well and maybe a good replacement of the Pulsar family if all the electric bikes are made mandatory. You will already find a Tork T6X motorcycle that has been made available in the market. This bike has all the bits that would appear on a motorcycle. At the moment, we are not sure how the buyers would expect an electric motorcycle.
At the moment, it is too early to say anything. However, it will be more focused on performance than consumer-oriented. Bajaj will move towards adding more such bikes to its fleet and gradually adding 100cc replacement bikes.
Bajaj Urbanite Launch Date in India
In India, Bajaj Urbanite is set to launch on 16 October. This is an electric vehicle and by launching this vehicle, Bajaj is going to enter the Electric segment. Urbanite is a vehicle that brings back nostalgia with future hits. Rajeev Bajaj, who is the Managing Director of Bajaj Auto had hinted at an electric two-wheeler bike like Tesla, and thus we are sure that the company has been paired with some big surprise Urbanite brands. All this information said that there is no clear news about the bike that going to launch on 16 October will be an electric scooter or a regular BS6 scooter.
Price of Bajaj Urbanite
We expect that the price of this bike to be similar to a 200cc motorcycle. So, the price of this bike should be close to Rs. 1 lakh. It will be cheaper because of the lower taxes that apply to this new bike.
Colors of Bajaj Urbanite
This bike will be available in some basic colors. These would be similar to the old Bajaj Chetak. We may see the dual-tone colors. If it looks like Bajaj Chetak then this vehicle will be an eye-catcher.
Competition of Bajaj Urbanite
If the Bajaj Urbanite will be an electric scooter, then it will have some less competition. If this scooter will be a combustion BS6 engine scooter then there will be many competitors like the Jupiter, Activa, and Duet.
