Bajaj Auto has announced the launch of the new Platina 110 ABS model in India. Priced at Rs 65,930 (ex-showroom, Delhi) the new Bajaj Platina 110 ABS is the only bike in its segment right now to offer Anti-lock braking technology. The motorcycle comes with single-channel ABS technology, and the system is paired with a 240 mm front disc brake. Recently Bajaj Auto also launched the Platina 100 ES or Electric Start model, calling it the most affordable motorcycle in its segment to get a self-start system.
The new Platina 110 ABS offers unmatched safety by offering riders complete control over unforeseen braking scenarios. We hope that millions of Indians who ride across varying terrains & roads of the country would take cognizance of the need to keep themselves & their loved ones safe and upgrade to the best-in-segment braking technology. The brand Platina has an unmatched proposition of Comfort with over 7 million satisfied customers as a testament to its segment-leading attributes and now with the addition of ABS, it remains a generation ahead of its competitors.
Currently, in India, ABS is mandatory only in two-wheelers that have an engine capacity of 125 cc or more. So, offering ABS technology with a 110 cc motorcycle is certainly a welcome addition for the segment. An anti-lock braking system or ABS comes with an electronic controller that monitors the wheel speed under sudden or extreme braking, and through a feedback loop, releases and reapplies the brakes, faster than any human intervention can manage. In doing so, the system works to prevent 'locking' of the wheel, which otherwise may cause loss of control or skidding.
