Bajaj has introduced a more utilitarian version of its CT110, called the CT110X. The motorcycle gets key features and equipment to distinguish it from the standard motorcycle on sale.
Bajaj has launched the CT110X in the Indian market for the price of Rs 55,494 (ex-showroom). The motorcycle sits at the top of the CT vertical in Bajaj’s motorcycle line-up.
The CT110X is pitched as a more durable motorcycle, which can withstand rougher use than the Bajaj CT110. The motorcycle also sports the necessary changes to make its utilitarian intentions explicit. The front gets a restyled headlamp assembly with a thin protective grille. The front mudguard has been raised to offer more clearance for the tyres. Speaking of which, The CT110X comes equipped with semi-knobby tyres on both ends.
The CT110X gets a thicker leg guard and a bash plate, which is wider than the one seen on CT110. Bajaj has done away with the rear cowl, and the motorcycle gets a rear-mounted carrier in its place, which can carry up to 7kg of weight. The CT110X gets a wider tank than the CT110, with thicker tank grips. The wheelbase is longer than the CT100 as well and measures 1,285mm. The ground clearance is marked at 170mm.
In terms of powertrain and cycle parts, the CT110X is identical to the CT110, except for one minor change in terms of engine tuning. The CT110X uses the same 115cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine block. The power output is 8.4bhp at 7,500rpm (500rpm more than that of the Bajaj CT110); however, the peak torque remains the same at 9.81Nm at 5,000rpm. The engine comes mated to a four-speed gearbox.
The key rival to the Bajaj CT110X is the Hero Passion Pro TR; however, the latter has been discontinued in the Indian market. This positions the Bajaj CT110X in a niche market space, considering its features and pricing.
