Bajaj CT110, a new entry-level commuter has been introduced to the brand’s portfolio for India. However, the automaker did not make any official announcement reportedly. But its availability at the numerous dealerships is confirming that the new addition to brand’s commuter segment, 2019 Bajaj CT110 Bike is available to purchase at an introductory price of INR 38,300 for the kick-start variant and maximum of INR 44,500 (ex-showroom, Pune) for the electric-start variant. Meanwhile, both these variants cost around INR 53,261 and INR 56,781 respectively, in terms of on-road prices.
If the pricing of the new CT110 is compared with the ongoing Bajaj CT100 variant, the former is around INR 3,000-6,000 (based on the variants) dearer over the latter. The CT110 is packed with 115cc, single-cylinder, DTS-i engine, the powertrain unit which was initially employed to the Discover and further makes its way to the Platina model late last year. Those who are on a tight budget, the CT110 is the right choice as it features identical powertrain among all and attracts an easily accessible price tag. Priced at INR 53,376-55,373 (ex-showroom Delhi), the Platina is the second best option, it uses the power churn of 8.6hp and 9.81Nm of torque from the said engine. We expect similar power output for the CT110 as well. However, it will make use of a 4-speed unit instead of a 5-speed gearbox setup on the Platina.
At the skin, the CT110 observes a few new fitments and distinct treatment over the CT100. It gets a rubber tank pads as appeared on the outgoing TVS Radeon model along with the fitment of a larger crash guard, rubber mirror covers, upswept exhaust and thicker padding on the seat. Where the significant underpinnings including the engine, gearbox, fork and wheels got an all-black treatment.
Among others, the fork gaiters and semi-knobby tyres are a few which are not only new to the CT110 but also can easily be observed in a glimpse. Also, it ensures a comfortable ride on the toughest of terrains. Furthermore, the CT110 receives a marginal increase in ground clearance which now stands at 170mm.
Bajaj CT110 is being offered with three colour options of ebony black (with blue decals), Matte olive green (with yellow decals), and Gloss flame red (with bright red decals). It is available to purchase at a number of dealerships, however, the remainings would also witness its presence in less than a week as reported from the dealer sources’.
