The Vektorr, in DNA, is the Bajaj Chetak. This is pretty easy to miss, what with the company’s majorly squared-off panels and white and fluorescent paint-work, but Chetak can be seen in the front single-side trailing link suspension, swing-arm mounted motor, 12-inch alloys and even the circular instrumentation.

The concept scooter has a claimed range of 95 km and a limited top-speed of 45 km/h. The Chetak does the same in Eco mode, but in Sport mode speeds up to 70 km/h which also cuts down the range to 85 km/h.
