No reported changes to the mechanicals of the motorcycle.
Discontinued back in 2006, Bajaj Auto seems to have relaunched its entry-level CT 100 motorcycle. Updated for 2015, the new CT 100 has already started arriving at dealerships, and deliveries are underway.
Speaking to Indian Autos Blog, a dealership in a Tier III district who received the motorcycle said that the bike has been priced at INR 35,801, ex-Showroom. The dealer confirmed that the bike is a relaunch, meaning that there are no changes to the engine.
The CT 100 is powered by a single-cylinder, four-stroke 99.27 cc engine capable of 8.2 hp and 8.05 Nm of torque, matched to a 4-speed gearbox. Bajaj has included alloy wheels and new graphics on the motorcycle to give it a fresh appearance.
While there are no reported changes to the mechanicals of the 2015 CT 100, the dealer informs us that the suspension has been tuned for better comfort.
Bajaj has seen its market share fall from 24 percent in 2010 to 17 percent percent this fiscal. It is strategically targeting rural markets with entry-level products such as the new CT 100, and hence dispatched the bike to these areas first.
