New Bike Launched by Bajaj Freedom Bike 125 with CNG

Bajaj CNG Bike Summary
Price: Bajaj Freedom price for its variant - Freedom Drum starts at Rs. 95,000. The price for the other variants - Freedom Drum LED and Freedom Disc LED are Rs. 1,05,000 and Rs. 1,10,000. The mentioned Freedom prices are the average ex-showroom.

Bajaj Freedom is a street bike available in 3 variants and 6 colours. The Bajaj Freedom is powered by 125cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 9.3 bhp and a torque of 9.7 Nm. With front disc and rear drum brakes, Bajaj Freedom comes up with combined braking system of both wheels. This Freedom bike weighs 149 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 2 liters.

The Bajaj Freedom is not just India’s but the world’s first CNG motorcycle. It gets a petrol tank as well to augment its riding range and is poised to revolutionise economical commuting. The bike has been launched in three variants.

Starting with the design, it blends form and function quite seamlessly. You’ve got an LED headlight in the top two variants, dirt bike-style fuel tank, a long seat that Bajaj claims is the longest in the segment, and a sleek tail section. There’s a neatly integrated grab handle as well. 

Under the bodywork, there’s a tubular trellis frame that’s suspended by a telescopic fork and a linked monoshock. This is the first bike in the segment to get a linked-type rear suspension. It rides on a 17-inch front and 16-inch rear wheel, while the braking duties are taken care of by a disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear. The base variant, however, has a drum brake at the front as well. 

The Bajaj Freedom gets a 2kg CNG tank that’s been cleverly positioned in the central area of the bike. A 2.0-litre petrol tank is placed above and in front of the CNG tank, where you usually find fuel tanks in conventional motorcycles. Together they offer a claimed range of 330km. There is a common filler cap for both CNG and petrol and the rider can switch between the two fuels with the flick of a switch.

Powering the bike is a 125cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces 9.5bhp at 8,000rpm and 9.7Nm at 6,000rpm. The engine is linked to a five-speed gearbox. 

In terms of features, you’ve got an LED headlight in the top two variants and a reverse LCD display with Bluetooth connectivity. 

Bajaj is offering the Freedom in seven colours – Caribbean Blue, Pewter Grey-Black, Cyber White, Ebony Black-Grey, Racing Red, Pewter Grey-Yellow, and Ebony Black-Red.

hmm... only if : 1. had a higher petrol tank 2. rear disc (abs, single channel would also do) 3. 17" rear wheel 4. a windshield 5. sporty looking front, not enfiled like 6. atleast 150cc with liquid cooling, would have given 35k extra and bought...

But the concern is the gas cylinder, if a ravaging accident happens, it'd burn up...

This is just a start of new segment in vehicle, and other manufacturers will soon follow the steps.

But i wonder how econimical is it when we compare it with EV, and while EV has a good response and evergrowing market share already. Even a rough calculation shows that if one just consider the cost of fuel its way more costlier.
