- Uncamouflaged video details the specifications available on the BS6-compliant Bajaj CT100.
- The BS6-compliant version of the bike cost more by Rs 6,000-7,000.
- Mechanical and cosmetic changes make the Bajaj CT100 a BS6-compliant bike.
The BS6-compliant version of the Bajaj CT100 has been spotted at the Bajaj manufacturing unit in its complete avatar without camouflage. There are detailed mechanical changes required for the existing Bajaj CT100 to become a BS6-compliant bike.
The Bajaj CT100 is a popular bike that comes in both the 100 and 110cc formats. Even in the present BS4-compliant variant, it is one of the most fuel-efficient bikes available in India.
This motorcycle has just been launched in the BS6-compliant version today at Rs 40,794, a considerable hike over the previous model's price of Rs 33,402.

Apart from a couple of cosmetic changes in the form of a blacked-out styling instead of the silver backing, the motorcycle gets the required mechanical changes to comply with BS6 norms.
The additional catalytic converter necessary for compliance with BS6 regulations makes the bend-pipe noticeably broader. Besides the second catalytic converter, the BS6 version comes equipped with an e-carburettor, an oxygen sensor, and a refreshed Evaporative Emission Control System unit.
The engine output will remain the same at 7.7bhp and torque of 8Nm. The only difference between the Bajaj CT100 and other bikes is that Bajaj has opted for an electronically-operated carburettor instead of a fuel-injection system. The e-carburettor can improve the combustion efficiency levels by providing the ideal mix of air and petrol. The ECU or the Electronic Control Unit plays a vital role by providing the appropriate signals in different riding conditions.
The present versions of the Bajaj CT 100 are available from Rs 32,000 for the Kick Start version and Rs 41,000 for the Electronic Start variant. The BS6-compliant Bajaj CT100 will also come with these features. The mechanical changes carried out to the vehicle could make it dearer by Rs 2,000 to 4,000.
A round headlamp-equipped Bajaj CT 100B is also available in the BS4 version. One is not sure whether a similar variant will be available with the BS6 portfolio. The best aspect of using the e-carburettor instead of a fuel injection system is that it saves on the pricing aspect.
