Bajaj Auto has claimed that it has launched the world’s most
fuel efficient bike – the all new Platina for Rs 44,507 (on road price, Delhi).
The bike apparently gives 96.9 kmpl as per ARAI testing. The bike is available
in three colours: ebony black, electron blue and candy red. The new Bajaj
Platina is not just an upgrade on its hugely successful model, but also a
technological leap, said a Bajaj Auto press release.
It is an entirely new
platform developed with a new DTS-i powered engine which delivers a great mix
of power and mileage. The fuel average claimed by the company is the highest
ever among all 100cc bikes not just in India, but also all around the world!
Bajaj Auto has done a global study on mileage across more
than 50 major countries and more than 500 motorcycle models. All sources such
as country specific OEM websites, blogs, industry bodies, and certified
automotive publications were reviewed in detail. The findings prove the fact that
on mileage the Bajaj Platina ES is unbeatable. No other production bike in the
95 to 105cc range, either in India or globally, comes close, said the release. .
Commenting on the launch, Eric Vas, President Motorcycle
Business said “The original Bajaj Platina has always been known for its great
mileage and reliability. It is one of India’s most successful bike model with
more than 50 lakh bikes on road. It is seen as a low maintenance and a good
resale value motorcycle that has built its reputation through customers’
word-of-mouth. It has always been a mileage “Champion” with existing customers
acknowledging its great on road delivery. The new Platina now takes the mileage
to an unbeatable level of 96.9 kmpl making it the “World’s Mileage Champion”.”
Moreover it adds superior styling and Electric Start to make it a very
attractive proposition to the everyday commuter.”
The new Platina ES has been designed to appeal to the long
distance commuter. It gets a new long travel telescopic front suspension and
SNS (double spring) rear suspension. Moreover it has a long wheelbase and three
inch wide rear tyres for superior grip and control on uneven roads. All of
which result in a superior ride experience.
The all new Platina ES also comes with refreshed styling as
well as Electric Start. It offers new side panels, new exhaust, a refreshed
headlamp design, new graphics and alloy wheels as standard. The bike also
offers the longest seat in the segment making it the perfect commuter
