The Bajaj V is a motorcycle that is partly constructed out of recycled metal sourced from India's first aircraft carrier, the INS Vikrant -- which had ended up in the scrapyard after being decommissioned from active duty.

This elegant motorbike is powered by an air-cooled single-cylinder 149.5 cc motor that is already in use in several other Bajaj motorbikes. The bike features a steel double cradle frame and offers a basic suspension and brake setup which makes it ideal for budget commuting.

Clearly, the big highlight of the Bajaj V is the fact that is features metal from the INS Vikrant, an aircraft carrier that gained legendary status for its role in the liberation of Goa from Portuguese Imperialists and the India-Pakistan War of 1971. This motorbike appeals to the patriotic sensibilities of young Indian men, who are the target demographic for this bike.
