The Bajaj V22 / V20 could look like this, or not.
Rendered based on the wild imagination of artist Oberdan Bezzi, these pictures may show a ‘near impossible’ Bajaj bike but it’s exciting to ponder on the idea. The Indian manufacturer is currently having a great run in the market with their premium ‘V’ commuter and the recently launched Dominar 400. They have maintained that the ‘V’ brand is exclusive to the commuter space so possibility of a higher displacement variant needs to be seen.
Three rendered images show a Bajaj V22 in gorgeous Scrambler and Cafe Racer forms. These are exactly what India need right now but is unlikely to get, at least in the predictable future. Although, their sister company ‘Husqvarna’ could debut models like the Svartpilen and Vitpilen 400 on a much higher price bracket in 2017.
The bikes in picture are seen with upside down front forks, rear mono shock, Brembo brakes, off-road tyres and ABS but obviously production models will be much toned down. Design is similar to some bigger Scrambler and Cafe racer motorcycles we’ve seen.
Powering the Bajaj V22 is a 220cc oil cooled engine offering 21.05 PS power at 8,500 rpm and 19.12 Nm torque at 7,000 rpm, mated to a 5 speed gearbox. Bajaj could also go with the RS200’s 199.5 cc single cylinder, liquid cooled, Fi mill that produces 24.2 BHP @ 9750 rpm and 18.6 NM @ 8000 rpm (and call the bike V20).
