Bajaj Freedom 125 CNG bike to be exported to 6 countries

  1. Claimed combined range of 330km
  2. Freedom can run on both petrol and CNG

"Our initial focus will be India, which is a massive market in itself," said Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director at Bajaj Auto, acknowledging the limited global reach of CNG refuelling networks. "A few stand out: Egypt, Tanzania, Peru, Colombia, Bangladesh, and Indonesia."

"Once we've established a strong presence in India, we'll begin exploring these markets," Sharma said. This strategic approach leverages Bajaj's experience in the CNG segment. The company already offers bi-fuel CNG options for its three-wheeler range, and the CNG-powered Qute is expected to enter markets such as Egypt.

The initial rollout of the Freedom 125 will be concentrated in states with robust CNG networks, such as Maharashtra and Gujarat. Production is expected to begin with a capacity of 10,000 units in the first 2-3 months, and the company plans to increase it to 30,000-40,000 units by the end of the financial year.

Bajaj, India’s largest two-wheeler exporter, consistently exports 35-40 percent of its total two-wheeler sales.
