Bajaj has launched a CBS-equipped version of the Bajaj Platina (Kick Start) at Rs 40,500 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The 100cc entry-level commuter motorcycle gets the safety tech less than a week before the government's ABS/CBS deadline of April 1, 2019.
The company hasn’t added the new variant of the motorcycle on their website yet. At present, the company only has an electric-start variant of the Platina 100, which is priced at Rs 47,405. This makes the Platina 100 Kick Start CBS Rs 6,905 cheaper. The competitive pricing brings it closer to Bajaj’s most affordable bike – the CT100 – which costs between Rs 32,000 and Rs 40,883.
Powering the commuter is a 102cc, two-valve, single-cylinder engine that makes 7.9hp at 7,500rpm and 8.3Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. This engine comes paired to a 4-speed (all-down) gearbox. Brakes remain drum units at both ends. The Platina 100 has a fuel-tank capacity of 11.5 litres.
2019 Bajaj Platina 100 KS CBS is available in two colours – Ebony Black with silver decals, and Cocktail Wine Red.
