Bajaj Platina And CT100 New Variants Launched To Keep The Volumes Flowing to make them more approachable and easy on the pocket
Possessing a focused target of setting up their niche in the desi market, Bajaj Auto has now come up with two all new modifications of their entry level offerings, the CT 100 and Platina on their official website. The CT 100 has been designed especially for the bucolic kin while the Platina ES seems to be a higher level, prime contribution. The closemouthed amendment has popped up soon after MD Rajiv Bajaj’s announcement of adaptation of the entire range of products in Bajaj’s AGM. The two alternative addendums comprise of the CT 100 ES Alloy and Platina ES Spoke.
Bajaj CT 100 underwent its revival in the year of 2015, which is almost after a decade. The Platina was also re-modelled in the same year in accordance with Bajaj’s diminishing market share. Every variant of the CT 100 was void of the electric start capability since its debut. The new variant, which was then priced at rupees 41,997 had presented an added advantage of an electric start on the top-of-the-line alloy wheel version.
On the other hand, Platina got a new base alternative in the form of the Platina ES Spoke, in which the alloy wheels of the other variants were replaced with normal spoke wheels, whilst holding onto all the other frills. Bajaj was able to bring down the prices by removing the alloy wheels.
The Bajaj CT 100 produces 8.2 PS of power and 8.05 NM of torque, geared up by a 99.3 cc four stroke engine. The Platina’s 102cc DTS-i engine is capable of developing 8.2 PS of power and has a larger torque rating of 8.64 NM. Considering the other entry-level mopeds in the market, a 4-speed transmission comes mated to air-cooled single-cylinder motor.
While the power figures are mediocre, low kerb weight of these two motorcycles makes them perky and fun to ride. The company boasts a fuel efficiency of 89.5 km/l for the CT 100 and 96.9 km/l for the Platina, both of which are considerably larger when compared to the competition.
Owing to the affordable pricing, both CT 100 and the Platina are very much crowd pleasing. Authenticity, easy maintenance and low initial investment are the basic traits expected by the customers of entry level commuter bikes.
What serves as an addendum to the performance of the two bikes in the sales charts is that they are grey haired and devoted. Indeed the new variants sum up to the value of the moped, but simultaneously it would lead to product fold over. Nevertheless, Bajaj Auto would be satisfied and happy as long as the buyers are with the brand. Bajaj CT100 Electric Start variant is priced at Rs. 38,806 (ex-showroom Price Maharashtra)
