For any country to progress, its transport system plays a significant role as it’s the backbone of the running system of the country. India is a developing country, and its daily transport system revolves mostly around the three-wheeler auto-rickshaw. The form of transportation is mostly referred to as ‘auto’ or ‘tuk-tuk’. These are a cheaper and efficient mode of transport in and around the city. Its demand has soared quite high, given the rising traffic on city roads. It has made the larger automakers to take notice and put their top of the line-up technologies to use and make these more efficient, comfortable and more customer-friendly.
Bajaj has been a frontrunner in the auto-rickshaw manufacturing sector and constantly keep on updating their technology used in these auto-rickshaws and now have a fleet of rickshaws to offer. Two of the best that Bajaj produces are Bajaj RE Compact and Bajaj RE Maxima. We are going to compare these two based on performance, design, comfort, and others.
Both the auto-rickshaws come with a similar fuel capacity with a fuel tank size of 8L and a reserve capacity of 1.5L.
The Bajaj RE Maxima and the Bajaj RE Compact both come pre-installed with foot clutches but the working system underneath is different.
On the design front, the differentiating features are less. Both the autos are built on approximately the same design language.
This isn’t much of a discussion point when it comes to auto-rickshaw so to be precise they both have handlebar steering type for precision handling. Both the versions have Hydraulic Expanding Friction Shoe Type with TMC – Foot-operated braking system and parking brakes. The rear suspensions are Independent swinging arms & shock absorbers with rubber spring and for the front its helical spring & hydraulic shock absorbers.
Both the autos can be bought from a Bajaj Dealership near you. Nowadays financing has become quite feasible with the easy availability of three-wheeler loans at low-cost E.M.I., allowing an interested driver to purchase the vehicle with easy instalments.
