BA­JAJ Auto in­tro­duced its new Platina ComforTec mo­tor­cy­cle with LED day­light run­ning lights (DLR) at a price of Rs 46,656 at Delhi show­room to boost sales in the on­go­ing fes­ti­val sea­son.

The Platina ComforTec is the first In­dian bike in the 100cc150cc en­gine seg­ment to come with LED DRL. The Platina ComforTec with DRL con­sumes less power and also de­liv­ers bet­ter fuel con­sump­tion fig­ures, com­pared to other bikes with the au­to­matic head­lamp on (AHO) fea­ture, the Pune-based two-wheeler ma­jor claimed. The new Platina ComforTec is avail­able in two colours ebony black with sil­ver de­cals and cock­tail wine with red de­cals.

“With the in­tro­duc­tion of this up­graded Platina ComforTec, we have made a su­pe­rior prod­uct even bet­ter,” Eric Vas, pres­i­dent mo­tor­cy­cle busi­ness at Ba­jaj Auto, said. Rid­ers would love the com­bi­na­tion of com­fort, su­pe­rior mileage and LED DRL styling that the new Platina of­fers, he pointed out. The Platina ComforTec bike is a first of its kind tech­nol­ogy in­tro­duced in any com­muter bike that re­duces 20 per cent jerks com­pared to other 100 cc mo­tor­cy­cles in the coun­try.

It also sports a ‘spring-soft’ seat, rub­ber foot­pads and di­rec­tional tyres that en­hance ride com­fort and sta­bil­ity, the com­pany boasted. The new Platina ComforTec bike is pow­ered by the 100cc Ba­jaj DTSi en­gine. It also comes with new graph­ics, a stylish new in­stru­ment clus­ter.

The Ba­jaj Platina is pow­ered by a 102 cc, sin­gle-cylin­der en­gine which makes 7.8 bhp and 8.3 Nm. The bike gets a four-speed gear­box and has a kerb weight of 111 kg.

Total sales in Septem­ber at Ba­jaj Auto jumped 14 per cent to 4,28,752 units, up from 3,76,765 units it sold in the same month last year.
