New Delhi: Bajaj Auto has launched Platina electric start. The company claims it to be the most fuel efficient bike in the 100 cc segment to deliver 96.9 kmpl as per ARAI testing.
The Platina ES, which is priced at Rs 44,272 (ex-showroom, Pune) is said to be a low maintenance and a good resale value motorcycle.
Eric Vas, president (Motorcycle Business), Bajaj Auto, said: “The original Bajaj Platina, which has sold over five million units, has always been known for its great mileage and reliability. The new Platina now takes mileage to an unbeatable level of 96.9kpl.”
The new Platina ES has been designed to appeal to the long distance commuter. It gets a new long travel telescopic front suspension and SNS (double spring) rear suspension. Moreover it has a long wheelbase and three inch wide rear tyres for superior grip and control on uneven roads. All of which gives a superior ride experience.
The Platina ES gets refreshed styling (new side panels, new exhaust, refreshed headlamp design, new graphics and alloy wheels) as well as electric start and the longest seat in the segment.
The new Bajaj Platina is available in three colours: ebony black, electron blue and candy red. The new Platina ES will compete against the likes of TVS Star City +, Hero CD Dawn and Honda Dream Neo.
