At the Pulsar NS400Z launch event, Bajaj Auto announced that it will launch its CNG motorcycle on June 18 in India. Likely to be called Bruzer, it will be Bajaj's first-ever CNG-powered motorcycle. While the exact displacement of the upcoming bike is yet to be known, it will likely be positioned in the 110–125cc space given that Bajaj intends to target semi-urban and rural markets with this bike. If so, we expect the bike to be priced above the Platina (Rs 67,808) and the CT (Rs 69,626). Both are starting prices, ex-showroom. Upon arrival in India, the Bajaj CNG bike will rival the petrol-powered bikes in the 100-125cc space.

The spy shots of the CNG bike have shown an LED headlight, bulb indicators, a small front cowl, knuckle guards, a sleek taillamp (could be an LED unit), and new 5-spoke alloy wheels. The riding position on the bike is a combination of mid-set footpegs, a long, single-piece seat, and a braced handlebar with handguards. Other bits include an upswept exhaust, a compact engine guard, and grab rails.

Bajaj CNG Bike: Technical Details

Technical specifications of the Bajaj CNG bike are under wraps. However, market reports indicate that Bajaj will offer CNG technology with a 110cc or 125cc engine capacity. Or both could be available. While this will be revealed on or before the launch date, we hope the CNG bike gets a 125cc motor, for it to achieve performance levels on par with a 110cc petrol bike. This is because CNG-powered models are usually less powerful than the petrol-powered ones.  

Bajaj will place the CNG tank under the bike's flat seat. Moreover, the bike will likely have a smaller auxiliary petrol tank, which can be used if it runs out of CNG. A blue switch on the left switchgear is also present, likely for switching between the petrol and CNG modes.

Bajaj CNG Bike: Hardware

For suspension, the CNG-powered motorcycle will likely feature a telescopic front fork and a rear monoshock. Stopping power should come from a disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear, likely mounted on 17-inch alloy wheels. It also remains to be seen whether the bike gets single-channel ABS (anti-lock braking system) or CBS (combined braking system).
