Acts as the entry model in the Platina 100 range
Continues to be available only as a drum brake model
The company hasn’t added the new variant of the motorcycle on their website yet. At present, the company only has electric-start variants of the Platina 100, available with a drum and disc option, priced at Rs 59,904 and Rs 62,125, respectively. The competitive pricing brings it closer to Bajaj’s most affordable bike – the CT100 – which costs Rs 46,432.
Powering the commuter is a 102cc, two-valve, single-cylinder engine that makes 7.9hp at 7,500rpm and 8.3Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. This engine comes paired to a 4-speed (all-down) gearbox. Brakes remain drum units at both ends.
The 2020 Bajaj Platina 100 KS is available in two colours – Ebony Black with silver decals, and Cocktail Wine Red – just like the older model.
