2017 Bajaj Platina Comfortec BSIV Launched With DRL Lights – Price, Specs, Images

2017 Bajaj Platina Comfortec BSIV comes with a new DRL LED light and a revised instrument cluster and yellow tit-bits all around the bike

The Story Unfolded Here First. Bajaj has been on a spree of updating its motorcycles. One of the few things that it is doing what the market does. Everything else seems to be different in the offering from Bajaj for its customers. In this step, Bajaj has yet again improved the Platina and now called it Platina Comfortec. We think most likely the Platina ES has been replaced with this new name nomenclature. The new nomenclature comes from subtle changes to suspension and seat of the motorcycles. Bajaj says comfort has increased and given it the tag ‘Comfortec’ Everything other detail is also listed below.

Bajaj Platina Comfortec Design and colors

Not much has changed in terms of the design. Headlamp fairing and headlight unit now get a large DRL to make sure it meets 2017 safety norms. The tail-lamps and side panels, rear tail-piece all remain the same. The new Platina name decal on the tank is now golden in color and the graphics on rear-tail piece are different then before. Springs of the rear shocks are golden in color to suggest that they are new. There are new foot rests which Bajaj calls Foot pads for pillion rider for vibe free ride. Changes are made to the front rider foot pegs as well. Red, Black and Blue are new colors available with the motorcycle.

Bajaj Platina Comfortec Chassis, suspension and brakes

The chassis continues to be the same as before as the ES model. The suspension however has been revised along with the seats. New springy seats, 28% more travel in the front and 22% more travel in the rear suspension claimed by Bajaj says that ride quality and jerks are down by a good 20%. Brakes continue to be drum on both sides and should provide enough stopping power.
