Bajaj Auto has launched the Platina 110 H-Gear in the country. The new 110cc motorcycle is priced at Rs 53,376 for the drum brake variant and Rs 55,373 for the disc brake-equipped version (both, ex-showroom Delhi). Bajaj offers a 5-speed transmission in the new bike, which makes it the only bike in its segment to get the feature. Like other commuter motorcycles, the gear shift pattern is all down, and the engine continues to be an 115cc unit.
It generates 8.6PS at 7000rpm and 9.81Nm at 5000rpm. The addition of the fifth gear should improve the motorcycle’s highway efficiency. The highlight of the new Bajaj Platina H-Gear is the inclusion of a shift prompter which Bajaj calls it the ‘Gear-Shift-Guide’. This feature lets the rider know when it is time to upshift or downshift and avoid engine lugging. Other notable features include a semi-digital instrument cluster with a gear position indicator (a segment first), a clock and other run-of-the-mill information.
The new bike’s underpinnings have been carried over from the earlier model. It comes with the same telescopic front fork and rear twin spring-over-spring Nitrox shock absorbers as before. Brakes include drum units on both ends with combined braking system as standard. A 240mm front disc brake is available as an option and is Rs 1,997 more expensive than the drum brake-equipped variant. This is the first model under the Platina family to get an optional disc brake. The motorcycle rolls on alloy wheels wrapped with Ceat tyres.
The design language of the Platina H Gear is more or less similar to its predecessor but the graphics has received a subtle revision. The aforementioned updates have resulted in a price hike of Rs 2,624 over the previous-gen Platina 110.
