When you buy a 110cc motorcycle, it is mostly to ensure that you get a reliable set of two-wheels. This explains why a majority of the sales in India for two-wheelers still is for the 100-110cc segment. Manufacturers are keen on ensuring that this stays and while at it, the feature set of the motorcycles increases. For example, customers will get dual-tone colours now as well as a semi-digital instrument console. The more ambitious of them also offer a disc brake at the front. A disc brake is something that enhances safety if used in a proper fashion. The right pattern is to always use the front brake along with a slight touch of the rear. Now, with CBS as a standard fitment, the pressure applied on the rear brake also dials in some percentage of the front. Here is a list of five affordable bikes that come with a front disc brake.
The Bajaj Platina 110 is an able commuter and in late 2019, the bike also got a H-Gear variant. Essentially the H-gear means one with five gears. Bajaj sells this version only with a front disc brake and hence it is a tad costlier than the other Platinas. The Bajaj Platina 110 H-Gear price in India is Rs 64,301, ex-showroom.
Interestingly TVS with its Radeon offers customers a Commuter Of The Year version. While this may lead customers to believe that the COTY has got all the bells and whistles, that isn’t the case. In the COTY edition, you also get a disc brake option and that is priced at Rs 68,037, ex-showroom.
The Hero Splendor i-Smart was the first BS6 bike to be launched in India and it brought in a whole lot of new features. While it is not at par in terms of looks with its stablemate, Hero Passion Pro, the motorcycle still falls in the premium category. Especially after you see the price tag of Rs 68,850, ex-showroom.
The Hero Passion Pro is an all-new bike for the year 2020. It boasts technologies like Autosail and i3S. Hero offers the Passion Pro at Rs 69,600 for the front disc brake version. This makes it the second-costliest bike here.
Honda’s premium offering in this segment happens to be the Livo. The Honda Livo in its BS6 form received many updates. It is the costliest 110cc bike on offer with the disc brake version priced at Rs 75,748, ex-showroom.
