Bajaj is one of the most popular two-wheeler manufacturers in India. It is the world’s third largest two-wheeler manufacturing company and the second largest two-wheeler manufacturer in India. The Bajaj group was founded by the famous Indian industrialist, Jamnalal Bajaj in the year 1930. The automobile wing of the company, Bajaj Auto was started in the year 1945 as Bachraj Trading Corporation Pvt Ltd. It became a public limited company in the 1960s.
Bajaj Auto was involved in the manufacture of scooters and three-wheelers. It was in 1986 that the first bike from Bajaj hit the roads. This launch was instrumental in establishing the company as a two-wheeler company – an image makeover from scooter maker to bike maker. The company went on to make many budget friendly bikes as well as three-wheelers. It soon became the largest exporter of bikes and three-wheelers in India.
Some of the popular models manufactured and sold by Bajaj in the past included the likes of Kawasaki Bajaj KB100, Bajaj Sunny, Kawasaki Bajaj 4S Champion, Bajaj Boxer, Kawasaki Bajaj Caliber, Bajaj Classic, Bajaj Super Excel and many more. However, all these models were withdrawn from the market at various times. New and improved bikes with latest technologies and state of the art features took their place.
