Bajaj Platina 110 CBS that was earlier announced to launch this week, eventually available to purchase at several dealerships across India. However, the product is not listed on the Official website yet. With new features such as CBS (Combined Braking System) and LED DRLs above headlamp, 2018 Bajaj Platina 110 is priced INR 49,300, ex-showroom, PAN India.
As per the rumours around, the current model is expected to be a part of the brand’s lineup due to its popularity in the market. The new model which gets new features and cosmetic touch up is priced INR 2000 premium over the outgoing model. However, the aspect which is questionable on the bike is its powertrain. the Bajaj Platina 110 CBS now packs a new 115.5 cc air-cooled DTS-i engine shared from the Discover 110. The churned power figures from the mill mated to a 4-speed gearbox are 8.6 PS and 9.81 Nm torque that is 0.7 PS and 1.46 Nm more than the model on sale with 102 cc air-cooled DTS-i engine.
Moreover, the CBS that is being used for the first time ever in Bajaj bikes is new to the bike. The feature is going to be a mandatory equipment for the bikes below 125cc from April 2019. Other than this, the drum brake units are also the part of braking in which a front disc variant is also provided as an optional extra.
Apparently, the Platina is not much different from the debuted model. However, the regular updates and recent style update keep the motorcycle appealing as per the trends. It now has sportier and bolder decals along with alloy wheels shared from the Discover family. The suspension setup is also revived with the introduction of gas inverted Nitrox chambers to the twin rear shock absorbers.
Dimensionally, the new Bajaj Platina 110 CBS measures 2,006 mm in length, 1076 mm in height that is respectively 3mm longer and 7mm taller than the previous model. The fuel tank now is a compressed unit for the fuel capacity 11 litres lesser by 0.5 litres than earlier. With the new Platina 110 CBS, it seems that it is the start of updating products in the lineup to comply with upcoming emission norms.
