Bajaj Auto, one of the largest two-wheeler manufacturers in the world, has launched the CT110 motorcycle at an ex-showroom starting price of INR37,997. The bike will be available in the ES Alloy and KS Alloy versions. The top-specification KS Alloy trim is priced at INR44,352. The CT110 has been positioned between the premium Platina 110 and the CT100 standard bikes.
Bajaj has lent a number of cosmetic updates to the CT110 to differentiate the vehicle from the CT100. These include a fresh treatment to the handlebars, suspension setup, engine, and alloy wheels. The new CT110 also comes with new body graphics and decals that make the bike more attractive to customers hunting for a basic commuting motorcycle.
The CT110 is hauled by an 115cc engine which produces 8.6PS maximum power at 7,000rpm and 9.81Nm peak torque at 5,000rpm. The motor is mated to a 4-speed gear system. While the CT10 had 110mm drum brakes at both ends, the CT110 has bigger 130mm drum units on either wheel. Bajaj has retained the suspension setup of the CT100 in the CT110. It comprises of a front telescopic unit and a dual SNS shock absorber at the back. The bike has the combined braking system (CBS) unit as mandated by the ministry of road transport and highways for all sub-125cc bikes.
The CT110, on the design front, sports blacked-out parts like rubber tank pads, alloy wheels, fork gaiters, the grab rail, and a braced handlebar. The commuting bike will be available in the Gloss Flame Red, Matte Olive Green, and the Gloss Ebony Black colour schemes. The company has added extra cushioning to the seats that offer additional comfort to the rider.
The Bajaj CT110 will compete with the Hero Splendor (INR51,290) and the TVS Radeon (INR50,430) in its segment. With the launch of the CT110, Baja Auto now has four bikes in this segment.
