Bajaj Platina 110 H-Gear: Photo Gallery
These shot-by-shot details should give you a better idea of what Bajaj’s newest commuter packs
Bajaj recently launched the Platina 110 H-Gear, starting at Rs 53,376 (ex-showroom Delhi). We will be putting up the first ride review soon. But until then, here are some detailed shots of the motorcycle which should give you a fair idea of what’s new in the commuter.
The overall design scheme of the motorcycle has remained more or less unchanged. Bajaj has used plenty of graphics in a bid to make the bike feel fresh amidst the competition.

The bike gets an LED DRL strip above the headlamp which also serves as the AHO feature. As a result, there is no need to keep the power-consuming halogen headlight illuminated when the bike is idling or when the engine is turned off.
The handlebars are easy to reach and the wide rear view mirrors offer a greater degree of visibility, thus minimising blind spots.
The semi-digital instrument cluster comes with a segment-first feature called Gear Shift Guide which lets the rider know when it is time to shift, thus preventing engine lugging. It also features a clock and a tripmeter - something you don’t usually see in motorcycles of its class.
The switchgear quality is pretty much what you expect of a budget commuter. However, it is functional and comes with a nifty pass-beam switch too.
The fuel tank can hold 11 litres of fuel. In our tests, it returned 71.06kmpl of mileage in city and 76.82kmph on the highway.
Bajaj claims the Platina 110 H-Gear has the longest seat in class and we found the cushioning to be one of the most comfortable in its segment, that too over different terrains.
Powering the motorcycle is a 115cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which produces 8.6PS at 7000rpm and 9.81Nm at 5000rpm. It is paired with a 5-speed transmission which makes the Platina 110 H-Gear the only bike to get a 5-speed gearbox in its segment.
Up front, it gets a telescopic fork which offers 135mm of wheel travel.
Bajaj also offers a 240mm front disc as an option. Otherwise, it features a 130mm drum up front as standard. The combined braking system is of mechanical type, for which Bajaj has filed patents as well.
At the rear, the Platina 110 H-Gear comes with twin spring over spring gas-charged shock absorbers with 110mm wheel travel. Currently, no other commuter offers this kind of a setup.
Instead of traditionally-designed footpegs, Bajaj offers flatter pillion footpegs for better comfort and grip.
