Bajaj made autorickshaws (3-wheelers) were first exported from India to Indonesia in the 1970s. Over a period of time, these tuk-tuks (another word for autorickshaw) with a 2-stroke engine became so popular there that it is said that an Indonesian has sat at least once in his lifetime inside a Bajai (Ba-Jai as pronounced in Indonesian).
These Bajai taxis are restricted only to be driven in the suburbs of the capital city of Jakarta. They are also popular in other states of Indonesia. Seen in two colours orange (old 2-stroke models) and blue (new CNG driven), it is said that at one time over 20,000 existed in the capital city alone.
This metal model is a rendition of this famous 2-stroke Bajai (Bajaj).
