Bajaj Auto has launched what it claims is the World’s most fuel efficient bike – the all new Platina.

2015-BAJAJ-PLATINA-ES

“The 2015 Bajaj Platina is not just an upgrade on its hugely succesful model, but also a technological leap. It is an entirely new platform developed with a new DTS-i powered engine which delivers a potent mix of superior power & world champion mileage. In fact, this new motorcycle has broken all the benchmarks on mileage to deliver 96.9 kmpl as per ARAI testing. This is the highest ever among all 100cc bikes not just in India, but also all around the world,” the company claimed.

Platina is Bajaj’s entry-level brand, while Discover occupies the mid-range and Pulsar, the premium range.

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, it added. “No other production bike in the 95 to 105cc range, either in India or globally, comes close.”

Commenting on the launch Mr 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 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 motorcycle.

The new Bajaj Platina is available in three colours: ebony black, electron blue and candy red.
