Design and Features

This particular motorcycle, as noted from the spy shots circulated online, will have a very practical and commuter-friendly design. It will target the entry-level budget segment with practical features.

Spy shots have revealed that this Bruzer CNG bike will get elements such as halogen turn indicators, telescopic forks, monoshock rear suspension, multi-spoke alloy wheels, a long single-piece seat, and a combination of disc and drum brakes.

User Experience

As you may have understood by the idea of this bike, it has been designed with cost-conscious buyers in mind. It will ensure high fuel efficiency and lower emissions. It has not been designed for performance-oriented buyers. The Bajaj CNG bike will mainly focus on functionality and practicality, making it an ideal commuter bike.

Performance and Usability

While CNG engines typically experience a power drop compared to petrol engines, reports have suggested that Bajaj aims to minimize this impact. The Bajaj Bruzer is expected to deliver sufficient power for city commuting, balancing performance with fuel efficiency. Despite the additional weight from the CNG cylinder, sources have stated that the bike’s handling and ride quality are expected to remain uncompromised.

Market Positioning and Pricing

In terms of pricing, the company is expected to price the Bruzer CNG motorcycle at around Rs 80,000. This means it will compete with the likes of the Hero Splendor Plus, Bajaj’s own CT125, TVS Radeon, and Honda Livo along with many other commuter motorcycles. It will also take on a number of popular scooters such as Honda Activa, Ola S1X, and others.

Additional Features

From all the spy shots of this bike we have seen so far, it has been noted that it will come equipped with a round LED headlamp, a fully digital instrument cluster indicating fuel levels for both petrol and CNG, a raised handlebar, and knuckle guards. It will also include mid-set foot pegs and a raised handlebar to ensure an upright riding posture suitable for city commuting.
