Mumbai, May 3 (IANS) Superstar Aamir Khan has become a proud owner of the new Bajaj V, a motorcycle which contains metal of India’s de-commissioned aircraft carrier INS Vikrant.

Aamir was inspired to buy the V15 when he learnt that the new launch from Bajaj contains metal from INS Vikrant, which played a role in the 1971 India-Pakistan war.

When Rajiv Bajaj, managing director of Bajaj Auto, got to know that Aamir, a personal friend, had placed an order for a V15, he contacted Aamir and decided to have a unique customisation done for his Bajaj V.

The new V made for Aamir has a customized embossing of the initial A on the fuel tank and one-off graphic design of “Chote Lal” affectionately inscribed on the rear seat cowl.

Bajaj met Aamir at his residence here and personally handed over his customised V15 to him.

The “Dhoom:3” star was delighted to receive his new bike. He said in a statement: “The V is a special bike and I wouldn’t compare it with anything else. It has a piece of history ingrained into it. For me, it’s a proud moment to own a piece of metal from INS Vikrant which was the military pride of India for decades.”

The launch of V was announced by Bajaj in February this year. V is a 150cc commuter bike differentiated by its solid form and stand tall proportions.
