8 Rajiv Bajaj: The Man behind the Pulsar

Know Mr. Rajiv Bajaj better, the young MD of Bajaj auto..

How much does Bajaj pay you to write in their favor..??"

Did Bajaj Auto gift you with the Pulsar 220 because you write for them..??

This blog (The Bike Chronicles of India) is maintained by Bajaj Auto guys..!!


These are the a few of the Cynical Comments that I have got off late.

Why..?? Maybe because I have recently purchased a Pulsar 220. Maybe my posts seem like its biased towards Bajaj Auto..

You know what? Such comments make me laugh. I know that Indians are really very good at sitting and making comments.. To the cynics out there, please continue to amuse me.

Rajiv Bajaj, Bajaj Auto MD

My admiration for Bajaj Auto stems from the following..

  • Bajaj is the only Indian company which has so far known exactly what "I" need before I go bald.



  • There is a very proud Indian in me which doesn't feel shy to endorse a Made in India product.



  • Because the MD is someone like Mr. Rajiv Bajaj..!!











  • I had previously posted "The inspiring story of the Birth of Bajaj Pulsar" which showed that if you believe in yourself, there is nothing one cannot achieve. The Pulsar went on to prove this and the credit for making this happen goes to Mr. Rajiv Bajaj. Rajiv was in his early 30's back then.

    Rajiv Bajaj, Bajaj Auto MD receiving CNBC TV18 Award

    He is in his 40's now, but compared to his contemporaries who are old enough to be grandpa's, Rajiv is still very young. Maybe that's why he knows exactly what young guys want from their two wheelers.

    To know Mr. Rajiv Bajaj better, just watch (& hear) Rajiv receive the CNBC Best Motorcycle 2007 award (awarded to Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi).



    When the other guests come dressed in their formal suits, he (Rajiv Bajaj) goes on stage dressed informally in jeans, takes Mr. Abraham Joseph (R&D Head) and Pradeep Srivastava (President, Engineering) on stage. He displays excellent leadership skills by making sure that he acknowledges their contribution to the company and then proceeds to literally speaks his mind off.

    Mr. Rajiv Bajaj even ends up making an "innocent" pass at Shereen Bhan (of CNBC TV 18) who was there to give away the award.

    The main reason why the western countries like the US is so developed and prosperous because the people over there support their countries in every possible way, right from toothpast to guns!!! I do accept the fact that Hero Honda bikes are great, but I cannot accept the fact that what's the reason to hate Bajaj bike and specially the ones which are recent from it's stables. The recent Bajaj bikes - right from the Platina to Pulsar are great bikes and we should be proud of them.
    Why can't we understand that showing patriotism is not a matter of social status or publicity, it's a matter of acceptance and showing regards even to pin which has been made in your country.

    So Payeng how much does Bajaj pay? ;)


    Jokes aside, Bajaj is a quality bike maker. Honestly Bajaj or Hero Honda would be the 2 bikes I'd get these days.

    very well said payeng, very well said.

    u buy a bajaj bike and people think you are biased towards bajaj. and it takes no time to rattle off insensibilities. what sajal has pointed out is also true. HH bikes are good, but that doesnt mean bajaj bikes are bad.c'mon now, bajaj bikes come from a totally home grown stable - give THAT due credit and weightage dudes. i have been saying that i ride a p200, but i dont go about bad mouthing a ZMA.

    when will people grow up?

    And you know what..?? Sajal had previously owned a Hero Honda Super Splendor and now he owns a Pulsar 200.. (Check it out in his blog)

    Actually most of the noise usually come from the "Empty Vessels"..

    its really nice to see Mr Rajiv Bajaj giving credit to his team and introducing them to the general mass. Very few people do that.
    Usually its the boss who takes the cake and the icing too, isnt that universal?

    But really good to see him passing credit to his team.

    Wow man, I'd love to have a chilled out boss like Rajiv.

    Loved Rajiv's last line to Shereen Bhan: "Aati Kya Khandala"..??
