New Bajaj Chetak 2017

We were the first to state that Bajaj has been working on scooters. We were first to get the news that Chetak will make a come back. Another MotorOctane Exclusive, we have the leaked image of the New Bajaj Chetak 2017. The Chetak was initially offered as a geared scooter, however this time it will be non-geared one. Bajaj has been working on motorcycles majorly, as they dominate the two-wheeler segment across the globe. 

We have confirmed reports that indicate Bajaj has once again re-registered its Chetak brand and we could possibly see a new generation of Chetak scooter coming in. The twist here is Bajaj is looking at getting the Chetak as classic marvel. In fact, we have got several parts of the bike and to be honest it is visible that Bajaj is gunning for brands like Vespa. Why do we think so? Read Further.

New Bajaj Chetak 2017 Design

Vespa 125 S 7

From the design it is clear that Bajaj will carry forward the classic styling for this scooter. The Bajaj Chetak in its new avatar will not just be appealing, but even trendy. A scooter that had mobilised the country for decades. A brand that has been close to many hearts back in its days. This will be coming back. The fascia looks stylish and appealing. It has a hint of sophistication to it. There is a trendy looking headlamp and two gills on the side. There are alloy wheels used to continue with the premium styling. The seat will be of different colour. It is clear that Bajaj will be targeting global buyers with this scooter, especially for European and American markets. This is where the Vespa is strong and the Peugeot scooters are looking to make an impression too.

New Bajaj Chetak 2017 Engine

Yamaha Fascino

A bit early to state the exact details. But Bajaj is likely to get the Chetak with a 125cc engine. This will be target Vespa and other premium scooters in India. At the same time, this will be the ideal option to start with in other markets. The plan will be to get a 150cc scooter and then grow in displacement capacity. Bajaj is majorly targeting exports with this scooter and it is clearly evident.

New Bajaj Chetak 2017 Launch Date

The Bajaj Chetak is looking to make an entry sometime in FY18. We expect in the last quarter of FY18 will be the timeline. At the moment, the company will want to focus on performance biking. Bajaj is slowing increasing its presence in leisure biking, first with the Dominar and then maybe a 400cc cruiser bike also. So, first quarter of 2019 will be the ideal time for the bike.

New Bajaj Chetak 2017 Price

aprilia sr 150 side 1

Bajaj has always been pricing aggressively.  We reckon with a 125cc, the Chetak should be priced close to INR 66,000 (on-road). That is only when it will be able to do justice and attract more buyers.

  1. There is no response from the company and public is be fooled as new Bajaj Chetak is coming on road in last quarter of Fy 18.The company should give some time for publicity so that people who are going to purchase other brand scooter may defer purchase and wait for Bajaj Chetak to come in market.
