Bajaj Platina Bike Review
The Bajaj Platina 110’s engine is borrowed from Discover 110; in that sense, the bike is not distinct. Even its design aspects have not changed much. The overall element that makes a bike look outstanding is missing.
The fuel tank capacity has reduced to 11-litre; meanwhile, the standard variant was initially at 11.5 litre. Slight modifications are made to the Platina 110, and the bike is now 7mm taller and 3mm longer when compared to the previous version. The combi-braking system’s safety networks along with drum brakes at the rear and front.
However, the suspensions are conducted by traditional telescopic suspension, while Bajaj’s patented S&S shocks have secured the rear. A very crucial factor that gives the Bajaj Platina 110 an edge is that it offers 75 kilometres per litre. Servicing the bike and maintaining is not that expensive. Overall, the Bajaj Platina 110 is good but in its segment.
The on-road experience of the Bajaj Platina is overall very satisfying. The front suspension displays 125 mm forks, while the suspension in the rear side is well equipped with SNS or Spring in Spring technology of Bajaj. There is another unique thing about the bike, its ride control feature. The switch helps the rider stay in the required rpm range, enforcing an optimal use of fuel. Meanwhile, the 1275 mm wheelbase provides more safety and reliability compared to its opponents.
The Bajaj Platina claims to offer 104 kmpl, and the brand does provide the same with the help of its unique features. The Platina is equal part substance and style.
