'Bajaj Chic electric' name registered

In 2017, Rajeev Bajaj, Managing Director, Bajaj Auto stated that the company intends to be the Tesla of two-wheelers. That said, we expect the upcoming Bajaj Chetak Chic electric to come with good build quality and multiple premium features under its sleeve. The Chetak Chic Electric will sport a retro-modern design language and looking at the spy images, the scooter seems to have taken styling inspiration from the Vespas. The front gets a rounded headlamp which is expected to be an all-LED unit with LED DRLs. The spy images also revealed that the front suspension of the scooter is a single side trailing arm unit like the ones that you must have seen on the Vespas.
