  • Bajaj lookin to produce 250 to 650 CC engines!

    Hey Guys...

    An interesting article in the Economic Times....(tho' many of you must've read it already.... You can read it in the transcript or the link below... But what makes it really interesting is... the first para...Read it again!...

    Yes it says 250 to 650 CC range... Rub your eyes and read it again...

    Well if Bajaj really does begin to produce good, high torque (required for an ATV) engines in that range...we are in for luck...

    All you need to do is plonk that engine in the Pulsar and/or Eliminator and there you have it.... the large capacity bike that you all are looking for! Can we expect that from Bajaj! Of course it will not be all that easy, a lot of chassis redesign and strengthening will be involved esp to ensure stability.

    But once the large capacity engine is in place... everything can fall around it.

    Lets hope for the best....

    Interesting... Very Interesting.
    But I don't think it is gonna happen soon. GOd knows how long their study of the ATV market goes on and then the actual of thought of producing a 250+cc bike has to enter their heads.
    Bajaj does have it in it to do that ultimate thing but when?

      The'll have todo it Biju,

      Esp when HMSI rolls in their large capacity CBUs. Yam has already some line ups planned and so does Hero (Munjal) group with their proposed venture with Aprilia.

      But if Bajaj does manage to get these engines on to their bikes... it will only mean one thing....good VFM bikes.. :-) A little problematic, a little unstable...but overall good VFM :-)
