Bajaj Platina 100 Features and Overview

The Bajaj Platina 100 is one of Bajaj Autos most popular offerings in the entry-level 100cc commuter segment. The 99.2cc engine that powers the Platina 100 employs technological innovations like Throttle Response Ignition Control (TRICS III) and ExhausTEC, in order to improve low-end torque and maximize fuel efficiency. A unique feature of the Platina 100 is its Ride Control Switch, which helps the rider to maintain low engine speeds, where fuel consumption is least. Other features include a long and wide seat, 125mm-travel telescopic front forks and SNS shock absorbers for ride comfort on all terrains, and alloy wheels.

The Platina 100 delivers a SIAM-rated mileage of 77.1 kmpl. The bike is priced at Rs.37,019(ex-showroom, Delhi), and is available in Black Chrome, Black Maroon and Flame Red.

The Platina 100 is targeted at the mass market, and is therefore styled conservatively, with clean lines and minimal graphics that would appeal to varied tastes. Being a commuter bike, the bike offers an upright riding position with wide handlebars and middle-set foot pegs, which minimises stress applied on the riders lower back and wrists.

The Platina 100 is powered by an air-cooled 99cc single-cylinder engine that produces 8.4 bhp and 8.05 Nm torque, and is mated to a 4-speed gearbox.

The Platina 100's front suspension employs a hydraulic, telescopic front forks suspension system with 125mm travel, and the rear part uses trailing arm with co - axial hydraulic shock absorber and coil springs.

The Platina 100 employs a 130mm drum brake at the front, and a 110mm drum brake at the rear.

Those looking for a bike primarily for commuting short distances (less than 40 kms per day) within the city, may consider buying the Bajaj Platina 100.
