2022 Platina 110 ABS Changes
Here are all the changes that the new model now comes equipped with…
- ABS – Off-coarse the biggest change is the introduction of the Anti-lock braking system on the entry level motorcycle. It features a single channel ABS system and comes with a disc brake at the front. The rear makes do with the conventional drum brakes.
- New Cluster – Platina 110 ABS also comes equipped with a new digital instrument console. It shows information like gear position indicator
- More Features – With the new console, the Platina 110 ABS also gets features like ABS light as well as gear position indicator and gear change indicator.
- Colors – The Platina 110 ABS is offered in four colors – Ebony Black, Gloss Pewter Grey, Cocktail Wine Red, and Saffire Blue. It also gets few ABS stickers for differentiation apart from slightly refreshed decals.
- Price – Bajaj has priced the Platina 110 ABS at Rs 72,224 ex-showroom Delhi and it becomes the costliest version of the motorcycle to be on sale. The standard variant is offered at Rs 69,216. This means that for all the added features, Bajaj is charging a premium of Rs 3008 over the standard Platina 110 variant.
Apart from this, the rest of the motorcycle appears to be unchanged. That means that it carries forward the same 115.45cc engine that churns 8.6 PS of peak power at 7000 rpm and 9.81 Nm of max torque at 5000 rpm.
It must be noted that Indian government has mandated motorcycles over 125cc capacity to come equipped with ABS and smaller models can do with cheaper CBS tech. And frankly, ABS may not be needed on a ~9 hp motorcycle that will live most of its life in traffic doing smaller speeds but it does not hurt to have more safety, no?
