Bajaj, India's largest manufacturer of two-wheeled vehicles and holder of a 14.5% stake in X-Bow maker KTM, is known not only for innovations like adding fuel injection to small-bore motorcycles and introducing dual spark technology, but also for producing excellent advertisements and commercials for television. We highlighted one of their better videos a little over a year ago, and today we've run across another great one.

It seems Bajaj is trying to capitalize on Transformers mania with this video, and that's fine by us. We're not sure what three lonely bikes were doing hanging out in an abandoned gym, but every story needs a plot, right? Click past the break to watch the video in all its computer-generated glory.

      That was one badass commercial.

      I love small displacement bikes...Bajaj should sell them here in the U.S. Hey, Honda can make a business case out of selling the crappy Rebel unchanged for 20 years, so why don't we get cool fuel injected sport bikes that Bajaj sells?

        Here is what will piss you off more. The 220 probably costs less than $2,000 in India. That is in a country where an Accord V6 or the Passat 2.0 retails for $50,000+.

        Draw your conclusions.

        Kawasaki had a collaboration with bajaj initially but now bajaj has outgrown its inhouse technology to create good bikes themselves..
        I guess kawasaki now sells bikes made by bajaj in other countries too..

        Btw, does Bajaj have some sort of association with Kawasaki?

        Guys who are interested in these bikes and are google-ing them for kicks might wanna check out the TVS Apache as well... :o

      Some corrections:

      Bajaj is in fact, India's third largest two wheeler manufacturer.

      That picture someone posted of a 300CC version is a bogus photochop. It has been around for ages on los intrawebz. Can't believe people still fall for that!

      Kawasaki and Bajaj indeed have a tech transfer agreement. Last I heard, Bajaj was planning to manufacture the Ninja 250 in India under license. Kawasaki also sells some bajaj motorcycles (rebranded) in some markets.

      Abandoned gym? Looks more like a manufacturing plant.
