The Bajaj Auto has begun its new model offensive in India to take on its rivals. We have been talking about how Bajaj will be launching 6 new motorcycles in the country in next 6 months and Bajaj has started off with a bang. Platina has arrived in a 100cc avatar and now claims to be the most efficient motorcycle that has seen a launch in the country, at 96.9kmpl. The new Platina is currently on its way to dealerships and would be available for sale at an ex-showroom (Delhi) price of Rs 44,507.
Apart from the changes in the engine, the new Platina ES as the name suggests, gets an electric starter alongside the standard kick starter. In terms of overall design, not much has changed, although it receives new side panels, brighter graphics and a slightly tweaked exhaust. With such fuel efficiency claims and the much respect brand name of Platina behind, this launch from Bajaj is aims squarely at destroying the competition and with the looks of it, Bajaj auto might just be back with a big bang.
