Bajaj Re 4S

Bajajrepic“The Bajaj RE 4s LPG,” haven’t you always wanted to ride in one of these. Wondering what I am talking about, then just have a ride in one of these 3 wheelers and you would know. It’s no ordinary Auto rickshaw; this had advanced quite a bit from the ordinary RE 2s version with its four stroke SI engine. Highly advanced dashboard features with an electric start facility that does not leave you stranded in the middle of signals.

It comes with dual Gas/Petrol mode switching features and is tested safe. It is very Eco friendly considering the LPG mode. The LPG cylinder comes with a 1st stage regulator so there are no hassles of leakage. Also provides ample seating area compared to the usual cramped area that you receive in the RE 2s. So head out to the streets and look out for that instant start rickshaw you can ride in right away!
