There’s a new Bajaj Platina 100ES in the Indian market. The updated commuter has been launched at a very competitive price which makes it the most affordable motorcycle currently on sale in the country to feature an electric start system.
Speaking at the launch, Narayan Sundararaman, Head of Marketing, Bajaj Auto Ltd, said:
The brand Platina has an unmatched proposition of comfort with over 7 million satisfied customers as a testament to its segment-leading attributes. The new Platina 100ES offers yet another compelling proposition at a ground-breaking price that allows the vast majority of kick start riders to upgrade to the much-sought convenience of self-start along with the Comfort-Tec technology.
