Priced at Rs 49,197, the new Bajaj Platina 110 gets anti-skid brakes as standard
Bajaj has now entered the Platina in the 110cc class to compete against the likes of the Honda CD 110 Dream and the Hero Splendor iSmart. The Platina 110 has been launched at Rs 49,197 (ex-showroom Delhi), considerably more affordable than its rivals in question. Despite being more affordable, the Platina 110 packs a lot of goodies.
Commenting on the introduction of the new variant, Eric Vas, President Motorcycle Business said “Bajaj Platina has always been synonymous with exceptionally high mileage and superior comfort. The Platina 110 now joins the highly successful existing Platina 100 ES to offer a premium option to 100cc consumers. Freedom from jerks due to rough roads is a necessary requirement for motorcycle customers, the new Platina 110 is the best product for customers who value ride comfort and safety.”
First things first, in line with the upcoming norm that makes combined braking system (CBS) mandatory for all two-wheelers less than 125cc, Bajaj has introduced their version of CBS – Anti-Skid Braking System, in the new Platina 110. Other notable features include tubeless tyres as a standard fitment and 110mm dual spring nitrox shock absorbers. While Bajaj promises 20 per cent lesser jerks on the Platina 100 ES, they claim this 110 to be even more comfortable thanks to the suspension hardware. At the heart, the Platina 110 makes 8.6 horses and at 9.6Nm makes more torque than any other motorcycle in its class. The engine comes paired with a 4-speed transmission.
To ensure that the Palatina 110 is distinguished well from its 100cc sibling, Bajaj has draped it in new decals. The Platina 110 is available in three colour options - Ebony black with grey decals, Ebony black with blue decals and Cocktail wine red.
