At its peak, the Chetak enjoyed unprecedented popularity with waiting periods exceeding 10 years and a resale value greater than its purchase price. No wonder that more than 1.3 crore Chetaks were sold in India. Its incomparable popularity earned it the endearing sentiment of ‘Hamara Bajaj’.

Its iconic design lends the Chetak with a beauty that transcends time. Simple lines and smooth surfaces are woven together softly to create a classic style that democratises distinctiveness.

In the new Bajaj Chetak, this timelessness has been updated with exquisite detailing, the use of premium materials & finishes, and a choice of 6 eye-catching colours that embellish its familiar form to achieve exceptional visual delight and touch & feel quality.

The new Bajaj Chetak scooter features a hypnotic horseshoe-shaped LED headlight with DRLs, feather touch-activated electronic switches and sequential scrolling LED blinkers. A large digital console intuitively displays vehicle information with crisp clarity. Moreover, fine craftsmanship is visible in the smallest of details – from handlebar grips, levers and mirrors, to the softly opening of the glove box and the damped seat closure mechanism.

At the heart of the new Bajaj Chetak electric scooter is an IP67 rated high-tech Lithium-Ion battery with NCA cells, The battery is easily charged using a standard household 5-15 amp electrical outlet. The on-board Intelligent Battery Management System (IBMS) controls charge and discharge seamlessly. Additionally, an elegant home-charging station is available at a nominal cost.

The Chetak electric scooter offers 2 drive modes (Eco, Sport) and a reverse assist mode to ensure that all the demands of a rider are satisfied. Regenerative braking via an intelligent braking system that converts braking heat into kinetic energy helps maximise its range.

The new Chetak also offers a fully-connected riding experience by virtue of being embedded with mobility solutions like data communication, security and user authentication that will enable customers to have a seamless ownership and riding experience. The Chetak mobile app gives the rider a comprehensive overview of all aspects of his / her vehicle and its ride history.

A rigid frame clad with sheet metal body panels and a tubular single-sided suspension give the new Bajaj Chetak scooter with the uncompromising strength and durability that it is famous for. The powertrain similarly employs a unique single-sided cast aluminium swingarm which houses the traction motor that drives the wheel through a high-efficiency automated gearbox.
