2. Bajaj Platina 100 (47,264)
The Platina 100 by Bajaj Auto is a commuter offering that sits above the entry-level CT100 and CT110 models. The motorcycle is a basic, no-frills machine that is available in Kick Start and Electric Start versions. Bajaj has also equipped the 2021 version with knuckle guards to add value to the package. The motorcycle is targeted at consumers who are looking for a commuter motorcycle that is rugged, easy to ride and frugal to own.
The highlight of the Platina 100 is its extremely frugal engine which is a BS6-compliant 102cc, fuel-injected unit which produces 7.8bhp and 8.34Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a four-speed manual gearbox with an all-down pattern. The motorcycle features a 13-litre fuel tank and it is meant to be profoundly fuel efficient. With the shift from carburetor to fuel-injection owing to the new BS6 norms, the Platina should deliver more mileage now.
The motorcycle comes with a Comforter package that offers long travel front forks and rear springs for a supple ride quality. It also gets a soft seat cushion, rubber footpads and directional tyres to further improve comfort levels. The frame, exhaust and the grab rails of the Platina are painted in black, while the engine crankcase and wheels are finished in silver. The rest of the design is pretty basic and Bajaj has maintained a very conventional look.
The Platina 100 rides on 17-inch alloy wheels at both ends suspended by telescopic forks and dual shock absorbers. It comes equipped with Bajaj’s comforted suspension technology for better ride quality.
