Bajaj’s iconic Chetak brand will soon be revived with the all-new Bajaj Chetak electric scooter that will first go on sale in Pune. Bookings of the vehicle will be commenced in January 2020, followed by its launch.
Interestingly, the home-grown two-wheeler maker is also working on a high performance version of the Chetak that could be retailed either under the KTM or Husqvarna brand. The platform of the new Chetak high performance scooter will remain unchanged. It’s likely to carry bolder stance and sharper design language than the standard Bajaj Chetak electric.
The performance-oriented version of the Chetak will have more premium components and efficient braking and suspension mechanism. However, it’s currently in its inception stage and it will take a few years to hit roads. Read – Bajaj-Triumph First Motorcycle Testing Begins
