A CNG motorcycle that consumes little fuel and costs 1,000 euros

Last Friday, July 5, the launch of one of the most anticipated new features of this year was made official, the Bajaj Freedom 125. A mount that uses a hybrid power supply system, and about which we have previously informed you in detail as its development progressed:

The event was held in the brand’s homeland, India, and was attended by specialized media from the country and the rest of the world. Now we finally know the model and its variants, as well as the most relevant technical data, including those related to its final performance: 9.5 hp at 8,000 rpm and 9.7 Nm at 5,000 rpm, with a declared maximum speed of 93.4 km/h (running on gasoline).

Bajaj Freedom 125: Saving as the main mission

As we have already mentioned, the new Freedom 125 is equipped with a 4-stroke, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine. It is coupled with a 5-speed gearbox and is fueled by separate petrol and CNG tanks, of 2 and 12.5 litres, respectively.

The Freedom 125 is approved for a gasoline consumption of 1.5 l of gasoline per 100 km routes, while if we are using CNG we would need 6.2 liters to cover an equivalent distance. We can switch from one system to the other by simply pressing a button on the handlebar, without having to stop the bike.

Bajaj has announced three different versions of the model, each equipped with a specific level of equipment:

  • Freedom 125 NG04
  • Freedom 125 NG04 Drum LED
  • Freedom 125 NG04 Disc LED
