The one spotted on street featured a CNG sticker on the rear and front windscreen which indeed indicates that the vehicle would be offered in CNG variant right from time it goes on sale. The interior carries minimal features looks fairly decent to keep the overall price in-check.

Bajaj RE60 is likely to be powered by 216cc water cooled engine that would generate about 20 Bhp of power. T he Quadricycle is expected to return about 30 kmpl in petrol alone, whereas in CNG, the vehicle may return about 50 - 60kmpl.
