Ever since its announcement on January 26, the Bajaj V has been the most talked about two-wheeler brand in the country and rightly so since it’s made from the metal of INS Vikrant – India’s first aircraft carrier.

Bajaj V15 Inspiration

As mentioned earlier, the Bajaj V is made of the Indian Navy’s first aircraft carrier – INS Vikrant – that has served the nation for almost 4 decades. Known for its crucial role in 1971 Indo-Pak war, INS Vikrant is hailed as the ‘war hero of 1971’. The icon was finally decomissioned in 1997, preserved as a museum ship till 2012 and was sent to be scraped in January 2014.

In the words of Bajaj Auto, “For decades, she remained invincible bravely guarding our seas. However in 2014, this iconic war hero was sent to the scrapyard. But we, at Bajaj, were determined not to let history fade away into oblivion. So we took INS Vikrant’s metal, melted it and gave it a new face – Bajaj V.”
