One of the most anticipated motorcycle for 2016 is Bajaj V15. Here V stands for Vikrant and right from its promo, the emphasis has been loud and clear that by launching V15, Bajaj wants the INS Vikrant to live forever in hearts and mind of every Indian.
I will give you a piece of information if you aren’t aware of INS Vikrant, HMS Hercules was actually commissioned by the British Navy while World War 2 but the war ended before the ship was completely built. India purchased the incompleted ship and completed it as INS Vikrant and commissioned it to Indian Navy in 1961. INS Vikrant was our first aircraft carrier, served the nation for over four decades protecting and shielding boundaries from any sort of threat.
Seeing the motorcycle you can easily figure out Bajaj’s nobel intent to immortalize the legend.
