Design

The majority of the praise from the scooter is due to its sophisticated and well-sound design. It is a retro-themed scooter with an all-metal body. It is spacious enough to allow one person to sit comfortably.

It’s a stylish, classy, and chic model, like a Vespa. The design and style inferences are apparent since the gasoline-powered Chetak was an ancestor of that Vespa 150 of the time.

Bajaj certainly has done an excellent job blending vintage charm with modern design nuances, such as the C luggage hook attached to the seat or the triangular rearview mirrors mounted on thin metal stalks.
