A couple of days back, we had reported about the 2021 Bajaj Platina 110 that was snapped with an ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System). Now, the Pune-based manufacturer has launched the bike in the country officially revealing its price. The new 2021 Bajaj Platina 110 ABS has been launched at Rs 65,926 (ex-showroom Delhi) and needless to say, this is the only bike to offer ABS in its segment which makes it the safest 110cc bike currently on sale in India. At this price, the new Platina 110 ABS is Rs 1,625 costlier than the Platina 110 H-Gear, however, it still remains to be seen if the new model replaces the latter or not. The single-channel ABS on the new Platina 110 works on the front wheel of the motorcycle that gets a 240mm disc brake. An ABS prevents the wheel from skidding or locking up during sudden, aggressive, or panic braking.
The said tech involves an electronic controller that monitors the wheel speed under such braking scenarios and through a feedback loop, releases and reapplies the brakes, faster than any human intervention can manage. In the process, the locking of the wheel is prevented that eventually can avoid a lot of mishaps and accidents. 2021 Bajaj Platina 110 ABS is powered by a 115 cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that is good for producing 8.4 hp of power and 9.81 Nm of torque. The new 2021 model also gets new mirrors for better visibility along with knuckle guards.
