Previously Rajiv Bajaj said that its company will launch very very innovative products this summer. Platina 110H is the first one
Bajaj Auto, India’s leading motorcycle manufacturer has launched its very very innovative product of the year. Priced at Rs 53,376 ex-showroom, the 2019 Bajaj Platina 110H has some striking new features. These added features make the motorcycle a premium 110cc commuter bike.
There are no significant changes done to the design. However, the 3D Platina emblem now gets golden garnish which is pleasant to look at. There are three color options to choose from – Black with Blue stripes, Black with Burgandy stripes, and Red.
The new 2019 Platina 110 H is powered by same 115cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine. This unit churns out 8.4bhp at 7000rpm and class-leading 9.81Nm torque at just 5000rpm. The engine is now mated to a 5-speed gearbox which made its way for the first time in Platina range.

Another important feature included in the new Platina 110H is the addition of a semi-digital instrument cluster. The speedometer is analog dial whereas digital display contains information like odometer, trip meters, fuel gauge as well as a gear position indicator. It is quite an irony when you see a gear position indicator on a 110cc commuter and there is no such thing on Pulsar range of bikes. The folks at Bajaj are getting too much innovative.
Speaking about the suspension, basic telescopic forks does the job up-front and twin gas charged shock absorbers at present at the rear. Braking performance comes from newly added 240 mm disc brake at the front and drum at the rear end. There is a cheaper variant with front drum brake as well. Both the tyres are 80/100-17 section tubeless shodded on alloy wheels.
The new Platina 110H is targeted at the urban commuter who look at the premium segment of commuter motorcycles. It will lock horns with TVS Victor 110 and Honda Livo 110. The disc brake variant costs Rs 55,376 ex-showroom.
