The Bajaj Platina Now Costs Rs 8,000 Less!


The introduction of a new kick start variant has drastically reduced the starting price of the lineup

 

On its Pulsar range, Bajaj might get away with the sort of price hikes it has implemented recently, but the 100cc commuter segment is a far more price-sensitive affair. The Platina 100 is Bajaj’s ‘premium’ 100cc commuter, and to make it that much more accessible, the company has rolled out a new kick start (KS) variant. Doing away with an electric starter has allowed Bajaj to shave a good Rs 8,237 off the bike’s price, meaning the KS variant sells for just Rs 51,667 (ex-showroom), making it the entry-level offering in the Platina range.

Like the electric start variants, the KS features an LED DRL above the headlight. To help tell the KS apart, Bajaj has thrown in hand guards, just in case CS Santosh decides to end his association with that other Indian motorcycling behemoth. On the engine front, the KS is powered by the same 102cc DTS-i motor as the other variants, producing 7.9PS and 8.3Nm. A comparable rival is the Hero HF Deluxe in its Kick Start Drum Brake Alloy Wheel variant which costs Rs 49,950 (ex-showroom). Full details are available in the press release below:

16th Dec 2020: Bajaj Auto, The World’s Favorite Indian, has launched the New Platina 100 Kick Start (KS) which offers great comfort with the proven ‘Comfortec technology’ of the Platina brand. The bike comes with ‘Spring-on-Spring’ Nitrox suspension that offers 15%* more comfort on long rides, taking up the comfort proposition for both, rider and pillion. It also comes equipped with tubeless tyres, assuring a safe and hassle-free ride.

The new Platina 100KS also gets a refreshed look due to its unique and stylish hand guards which offers great comfort by protecting the hands from wind blasts. Priced at Rs 51,667 (Ex-Showroom), the new Platina 100KS comes in two exciting colours - Cocktail Wine Red, & Ebony Black with Silver decals, and is available across all Bajaj Auto dealerships in India.
Commenting on the launch Mr Narayan Sundararaman, Head of Marketing, Bajaj Auto Ltd mentioned, “The Brand Platina has made a notable presence with its unmatched proposition of Comfort making it one of the best motorcycles in the commuter segment.
