Bajaj Platina 110 Latest Updates

Taking another leap in terms of features, Bajaj has launched the Platina 110 ABS at Rs 65,926. The Platina is now the country’s first 110cc motorcycle to get ABS as part of standard equipment. For more details of the newly launched commuter, read this story.

Bajaj Platina 110 Price

The Bajaj Platina is priced from Rs 64,301 for the H-Gear and Rs 65,926 for the ABS version. The Platina 110 H-Gear gets two colours: red and blue, while the ABS version gets an additional Charcoal grey colour. The ABS model also comes with white alloy wheels to distinguish it from the other variant.

Platina 110 Specifications

Bajaj’s popular commuter comes loaded with features. To start off with, the Bajaj Platina 110 gets a DRL above the halogen headlamp unit. It also comes with a semi-digital instrument console that not only displays regular information like speed, fuel gauge, trip meter and odometer, but also has a gear position indicator and a gear shift guide in the H-Gear variant to extract maximum mileage from the bike. Bajaj has built the Platina 110 using a tubular semi-double cradle frame linked to telescopic forks up front. At the rear, the bike features dual gas-charged spring-over-spring shock absorbers. 130mm front and 110mm rear drum brakes bring the motorcycle to a halt. Bajaj offers CBS as standard to comply with the new safety norms.

Platina 110 Design

The bike gets a typical commuter styling, however, Bajaj has focused more on function rather than form. Hence, the seat is ribbed and long (longest in the segment) and the pillion gets a comfortable, flat footboard instead of footpegs. The Bajaj Platina 110 uses a tubular semi-double cradle frame linked to telescopic forks up front. At the rear, the bike features dual gas-charged spring-over-spring shock absorbers. A 240mm front disc and 110mm rear drum brakes bring the motorcycle to a halt. The bike comes with CBS as well as ABS, depending on the variant.

Platina 110 Features

The design of the Bajaj Platina 110 is pretty much like any other commuter. It sports a bikini fairing with LED DRLs just above the headlamp. The fuel tank and the side panels have a no-nonsense, slim design highlighting functionality over form. Bajaj has equipped the motorcycle with a retro-looking analogue instrument cluster which shows the speed, odometer, fuel gauge and tell-tale lights. The trip meter has been given a miss, though. In a bid to enhance pillion comfort, the rear footpegs have been replaced with flatter footboards.

Bajaj Platina 110 Competitors

The Bajaj Platina 110 goes up against the TVS Star City Plus BS6, Splendor iSmart BS6, and Hero Passion Pro BS6.

Editor's View of Bajaj Platina 110

  • Upside

    Low pricing, fuel economy

  • Downside

    Design, old school approach

  • Our Verdict

    The Platina was supposed to bring in the numbers for Bajaj and Hero a fight. But, its bland styling (borrowed from the Wind 125) and basic cycle parts haven't helped its case.


Platina 110 Detailed Review

It's always exciting to ride a motorcycle for the very first time, even if it's a humble commuter like the Bajaj Platina ES. The Bajaj competes in a highly competitive market where the margins are low and the game is based on volume... which currently the Hero Splendor and Passion, and Honda CD 110 Drean and Dream Neo dominate. With dwindling sales motorcycle numbers and no scooter model for rescue (Honda Activa was the largest selling two-wheeler in March 2015) Bajaj is again focusing at the bottom of the pyramid to strengthen its foothold in the market.

After having refreshed the Bajaj Discover range of premium commuters and the sportier Bajaj Pulsar series, the modest Bajaj Platina gets a much needed upgrade - which Bajaj now calls the Bajaj Platina ES. And here she is in my parking lot looking its best in this bright red colour scheme.

Bajaj Platina ES has a sleek tank and a long, flat seat

Design: rating_3.0_rating

It's a long and sleek motorcycle, not too tall and without the artificial bulk which has become a norm in other motorcycle segments. And though the new Bajaj Platina ES looks very similar to the older model, Bajaj has redesigned quite a few body parts.

New solid fairing looks better, but wonder why Bajaj didnt use clear lens indicators instead of these old school orange ones

Take for example the solid front fairing, which has replaced the older, visor equipped cowl, and the happy face headlight. The streamlined fuel tank is narrow and flat, and is not as curvaceous as on bigger bikes. Similarly the seat doesn't have much contour and is pretty long. These along with the forward position of the foot pegs and tall handle bar create an upright, commuter friendly riding position. Wonder why Bajaj didn't think of using clear-lens indicators, instead of these old-school orange ones?

Rear design of the new Bajaj Plaitna ES

Almost the entire rear panels have been redesigned and which give the Bajaj Platina ES a more muscular form and appeal. While the pillion grab-rails, engine, chassis, rear brake and gear levers along with the exhaust employ an all-black theme, overall, the Bajaj Platina ES hasn't been designed to wow customers. Nobody is expected to put up a Platina posters in the bedrooms, but it's a decent looking bike, with more features now and is expected to ferry people to their destination expeditiously... which it does.



Bajaj Platina comes with rubber mounted rear brake pedal

Features: rating_3.0_rating

So, the name Bajaj Platina ES is an acronym for - Electric Start, a convenient feature the older bike lacked. It now also gets a maintenance free battery, hinged fuel filler car and improved seat cover material. You also get rubber on the rear brake pedal and on the toe and heal of the gear-shifter, which will be handy during rains by offering better grip.

Twin-pod instrument cluster with chrome rims of the new Bajaj Platina ES

The twin pod, chrome rimmed instrument cluster is still old school with an analog speedometer and fuel gauge read outs. The grips are soft touch, but as in the segment do not sport bar-end weight to fend vibration, nor come with an engine kill switch. The buttons and switches are on par to competition and it also comes with a door-bell type headlight pass switch, instead of the usual trigger button.

Headlight pass switch on the new Bajaj Platina ES

Overall, there is nothing path breaking here, as the new Bajaj Playina ES is on par to competition and sits right in the middle of the segment.



Test riding the Bajaj Platina ES in India for performance and mileage

Engine: rating_3.0_rating

I hop on to the bike. Time to use the 'ES' and wake up the neighbourhood. After a couple of failed attempts and some more closer looking around I discovered the choke tucked under the fuel tank on the carburettor. Could have been more conveniently positioned. With the chokes prodding the Bajaj Platina ES comes alive and placidly idles, as I adjust the large and useful rear view mirrors.

It runs a newly developed 102cc single cylinder, 2-valve, DTS-I which is based on the Bajaj Discover engine, chucking the 99cc motor found on the regular Platina. Though the new motor develops similar 8.2PS of peak power at 7,500rpm, it's torque has been marginally improved to 8.6NM at 5,000rpm. The idea behind the new engine isn't just to improve the fuel efficiency but to make the bike more rideable and peppy.

Bajaj Platina ES comes with a new 102cc air-cooled engine

Time to taste the pudding, as I shift down to first gear, and keep shifting down to shift-up as the Bajaj Platina ES gains momentum. The four-speed gearbox shifts in an all-down pattern, which not just takes time getting used to (being the opposite of usual gearbox action) but if you're new to this setup you'll be unconsciously gear-locking till you get familiar.

A tip to get over this quickly is to change the left foot position slightly, keeping your heel off the gear shifter and only bring it back when you want to shed speed and 'shift down'. I found the the clutch action to be light and easy but it could have a more progressive release action.

The new 102cc motor of the 2015 Bajaj Platina ES feels spirited for its puny size

The new 102cc motor feels spirited for its puny size, and is quick to reach the 60kmph mark where it's most comfortable. So, overtaking within the city should be a breeze. And there's ample torque to carry the Bajaj Platina ES from city crawling speeds to beyond 80kmph on the highway, but then it starts to protest and sends shudders through the footrest. The exhaust note is nice for a 100cc bike and has that typical Bajaj texture to it.



ZigWheels tests the ride and handling of the new Bajaj Platina ES

Ride and handling: rating_3.5_rating

It's only while cutting through traffic, and even more so riding on the curvy mountain roads, does one realise the work put in to improve the new Bajaj Platina ES' riding dynamics. Bajaj has tweaked the chassis and the box-section swingarm to make the ES more rigid and nimble compared to the last generation bike.

The Platina is light to steer and at the same time does not twitch and twist like the older bike, when ridden hard on the hills. While the short turning radius and light weight of just 108kg make it a naturally apt for the city. The only grouch is that the riding position is way too commuter-ish and dull, as you don't have much groove in the 11.5-litre fuel tank to sink your knees in, nor is the seat carved out to provide a snug posture. The counter argument of 'consumer demand' is also not valid here, specially if you look at more ergonomically sound offerings like the Honda Dream series and TVS Star City Plus. Clearly the market and consumers have also evolved.

The twin-spring shock absorbers of the 2015 Bajaj Platina ES offer a pliant ride quality

Ride quality is on par to competition, though as the well cushioned seat along with the telescopic front forks and dual-spring rear shock absorbers make for a comfortable ride over most sections of road. With two average built adults on board, the suspension doesn't bottom out nor is it too firm for comfort.

2015 Bajaj Platina ES comes with black alloys, 17 inch ceat tyres and telescopic forks

The 17-inch wheels come wrapped with decent Ceat tyres (ribbed 2.75 x 17 in front and 3.00 x 17 at the back) which do a fair job of keeping the bike connect to the tarmac. However, the 110mm drum brakes are just about average, since the front brakes feel spongy and one has to depend on the rear brakes to come a halt urgently.



Bajaj Platina ES claims and ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 96.9kmpl

Verdict: rating_3.0_rating

The new Bajaj Platina ES costs Rs 45,431 (ex-showroom, Mumbai) and is a clear improvement over its forebearer - offering the ease of a self-start, a peppier engine, better tyres and vastly improved handling. And like all Bajaj bikes it will be easy and affordable to run and maintain.

Claiming an ARAI certified 96.9kmpl, Bajaj terms the Platina ES as the 'world's mileage champion', a title soon clinched by Hero's Splendor iSmart. However, we managed to squeeze out 85kmpl riding the Bajaj Platina ES very cautiously on the highway and it dropped a couple of kilometres to a litre in the city when ridden with a light hand.

Bajaj Platina ES is one of the most fuel efficient motorcycles available in India

But since the motor is now tuned to sense the throttle input faster and deliver the desired power quickly it forces the fuel efficiency figure to drop considerably, bringing it closer to the 70kmpl mark. Still the Bajaj Platina ES remains one of the most fuel efficient motorcycles available in the country today.

Q. Which is the best bike in India?
  • Preferably buy a 125 cc bike as it is more stable and gives good mileage too. You can consider Honda CB Shine or Hero Glamour. If you wish to go for even heavier bike then consider the latest entry Suzuki Gixxer qhich has a 150 cc engine, or Bajaj Pulsar 150, or Honda Livo. If you have a liking for cruiser then consider Bajaj Avenger which comes in two engine options 160cc and 220cc.
  • Pulsar 220F is a good motorcycle as it is high on power but not too low on mileage either. The cheaper price that it came with adds its a good value for money bike. But the design is more then a decade old and its not a good performer on twisty roads either. What makes things worse is the launch of a pulsar 180f which destroys the value of P220f.

    Bike gives better milage. (but no where around the company's claimed figure). Riding position is upright. No backpains for average usage. if there was a thigh support , it'd be better. There is a major issue i faced several times with the tyre. I've to refill the air every week otherwise tyre will slip from the rim. Not sure if it persist only with my bike. other than that, one of the best commuter.
