In comparison to the drum brake-equipped Platina 110, this new ABS version costs Rs 3,680 more, and it competes with the Honda CD 110 Dream Deluxe, the TVS Star City Plus and the Hero Passion Pro.
As per the government’s rules, only two-wheelers displacing more than 125cc are required to feature ABS, while those under that can make do with a CBS (Combined Braking System). Hence, it’s nice to see Bajaj go over and beyond the government’s requirements and offer ABS in a 110cc motorcycle in the interest of safety.
