Bajaj Auto to relaunch two-stroke Chetak Scooter, Kawasaki-Bajaj 100 Motorcycle with gasoline direct injection (GDi)engines

Bajaj Auto has introduced direct injection technology, as the GDi name suggest, replacing the carburettor which delivers better fuel efficiency and higher power (torque) than the conventional two-stroke engines.

In the GDi technology, the fuel is injected through a common rail fuel line directly into the engine’s combustion chamber where it is completely burnt unlike the conventional carburettor-run two-stroke engine which leaves out unburnt fuel and results in higher emission.
It also meets the stringent emission norms with 50% lower carbon monoxide ((CO) and 25% lower hydrocarbons and nitrous oxides (HC+NOx) than the earlier two-stroke engines, which were phased out by two-wheeler companies because they failed to meet the required emission norms.

The gasoline direct injection (GDi) engine has substantially lower emissions than even alternate clean fuels like CNG and LPG.

Additionally, gasoline direct injection (GDi) engine has lower operating costs than four-stroke technology that currently dominates the bike market.

Bajaj Auto is in the process of developing two-wheelers that will run on CNG fuel.
