Bajaj Auto launches XCD 135 DTS-Si

Bajaj Auto has today launched Bajaj XCD 135 DTS-Si at Rs. 45,000 (ex-showroom Delhi).

135cc XCD 135 DTS-Si produces 10.2 bhp at 7500rpm and 11.58Nm of torque at 5000rpm.

Speaking on the launch Bajaj Auto CEO (two-wheeler) S Sridhar said, “The industry is expected to witness a growth of two per cent this fiscal. Our company’s performance will also be at par with the industry but we are positive of good growth in 2009. Bajaj Auto expects to sell about 20,000 units of XCD 135 DTS-Si a month on an average but declined to set an overall sales target for the company for the year.”

The company is also ramping up production at its Pantnagar facility, where it enjoys a 10-year tax holiday, and expects to achieve full capacity utilisation in the next five-six months.

“Currently about 30,000 units of motorcycles are produced but in the next five-six months it will produce full capacity of 60,000 with the shifting of the new XDC 135 there from Waluj plant at present,” he added.
