Bajaj Platina 2015 Details
Bajaj Auto sometime before had quite a big market share in the commuter division, gradually started seeing dip in their sales due to some really capable products launched by Hero and Honda in the entry-level space. Now the company’s cheapest offering, the Platina 100cc, however, is doing great business, but it sales have been constantly dropping due to high demand for Hero Splendor, Hero Passion and Hero’s Dream series bikes. To counter its rivals, Bajaj has now launched the 2015 Platina ES (Electric Start) variant that is claimed to be the ‘World’s Mileage Champion’.
This 100cc engine is equipped with dual spark plugs and twin valves. The engine produces maximum power of 8.2bhp at 7,500 @ rpm and maximum torque of 0.88kgm at 5,000 @ rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheel using a final chain drive and four-speed transmission that shifts in an all-down pattern. The motorcycle weighs only 108kg.
Design of Bajaj Platina
In precondition of design, it looks very similar to the current Platina except for new side panels, new exhaust, slightly different headlamp design and new graphics. The vehicle also gets an electric start feature. The Platina ES comes with new body graphics and color options (red, blue and black). The motorcycle’s grab handle will also get the corresponding body color. A completely blacked-out engine and alloy wheels add to the Platina ES’s fresh appeal.
