Bajaj CT110: All You Need To Know
Bajaj’s newly launched commuter is more than just an engine swap job
Bajaj recently launched the CT110 at Rs 37,997 (ex-showroom Delhi). As the name suggests, the motorcycle comes with a bigger 115cc engine borrowed from the Platina 110. However, there’s a lot more to this motorcycle than just the engine transplant and here’s everything you need to know.
Price and variants:
Bajaj offers the CT110 in two variants: kick start and electric start. The former costs Rs 37,997, making it the most affordable 110cc motorcycle in the country. On the other hand, the electric start version retails at Rs 44,352 (both ex-showroom Delhi). The price difference between the kick start alloy wheel version of the CT100 and CT110 stands at Rs 4000. For that extra money, you get plenty of additional features.
The Bajaj CT110 is powered by a Platina 110-derived 115cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which churns out 8.6PS of power at 7000rpm and 9.81Nm of torque at 5000rpm. The engine works in conjunction with a 4-speed transmission. The bigger engine makes 0.9PS and 1.57Nm more than the 102cc CT100 ES variant.
Just like the CT100, the CT110 comes with a telescopic fork up front and spring-in-spring twin shock absorbers at the rear. However, unlike the CT100, the bigger bike comes with gaiters on the front fork which protects the seals from dust. At the rear, Bajaj has changed the colour scheme of the shock absorbers from black and red combination to black and grey.
Brakes include 130mm drum on both ends with combined braking system as standard. For more premium looks, the 17-inch alloys feature colour coded dual-tone rim stickers as well. To ensure better grip on bad roads, the alloy wheels are shod with semi-knobby tyres. Bajaj has raised the ground clearance by 10mm, to 170mm.
Premium colours and features:
The Bajaj CT110 gets a thicker seat, covered with Rexine fabric (a type of artificial leather). Its fuel tank comes with rubber pads on the sides for additional grip, just like how it is in the TVS Radeon. There's a bigger, sturdier crash guard for better protection too. The Chakan-based brand offers the motorcycle in three premium dual-tone colours: gloss Ebony Black with blue decals, matte Olive Green with yellow decals, gloss Flame Red with bright red decals.
