With the recent teaser of Modenas’ two, new for 2017, full-sized motorcycles, in naked sports and full-fairing formats, we now have spyshots of the upcoming third model, a 150 cc cruiser-styled machine. Said to be based on the Bajaj V15, the Modenas version looks to be styled closely on the bikes of yesteryear, notably the Moto Guzzi of the 80s.

Carrying a 149.5 cc, air-cooled, SOHC, two-valve engine, the V15 as listed on the Bajaj website is claimed to put out 12 hp at 7,500 rpm and 13 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. Rolling on an 18-inch wheel in front and a 16-inch hoop at the rear, braking is with a single disc on the front wheel, and drum at the back.

Fuel is carried in a 13-litre fuel tank with a 1.7-litre reserve, and seat height is set at 780 mm. Kerb weight is rated at 135.5 kg.

What do you think? Is this a worthy successor to the Modenas Jaguh, which proved to be popular in its market segment some 15 years ago? Leave a comment with your thoughts and opinions, below.
