The Bajaj CT110 X is a commuter bike which comes with a few off-perks. It looks a lot like an off-road bike; however, the internal features indicate a commuter bike. This sort of hybrid bike is the first of its kind. The external features will allow the rider to ride the bike off-road every now and then. However, this kind of bike is more needed in rural areas, as the roads of rural areas are quite unpredictable.
Bajaj is one of the largest motorcycle manufacturers in the world and in the South Asian region. It is also one of the owners of KTM motorcycles. It has also been previously affiliated with Kawasaki motorcycles. One of the most popular motorcycle series of Bajaj is the Bajaj Pulsar series, which is one of the highest selling motorcycle series in the South Asian region, if not the world.
The Bajaj CT110 X comes with quite a few off-road features. The front of the bike gets a circular headlight, which is a refreshing look to this bike. The bike also gets bottom protection. The bike also gets a very simple yet elegant exhaust, which gives the bike a good look. The bike also gets semi-off- road tires. The rear of the bike gets a luggage rack, which you can strap your luggage with.
The Bajaj CT110 X comes with a halogen headlight. The circular headlight makes the bike quite stylish and gives it a retro view. The taillight still has the same design as the Bajaj CT110. The indicators are also bulbs and not LED. The light setup is accepted considering the price of the bike.
The Bajaj CT110 X comes with a very simple and analog instrument cluster. The instrument cluster only includes a speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge and other necessary indicators. The bike could have had a few more gauges, such as an RPM counter, and a gear position indicator.
The Bajaj CT110 X comes in four colors. They are:
The different color variants come with similar decals. The decals are quite sporty, which is refreshing
for a bike of this capacity and segment.
The Bajaj CT110 X is an average heighted motorcycle. It has an average saddle of 810mm, regardless of being somewhat an off-road bike, and anyone above the height of 5’4” can swing a leg over the bike comfortably. The bike has a ground clearance of 170mm, which is more than enough for the city commute. The bike has a fuel tank of 10.5liters, which is not much, but the mileage of the bike compensates for it.
The Bajaj CT110 X has an average-sized body compared to other bikes. The height, length, width, and weight of the Bajaj CT110 X are 1098mm, 1998mm, 753mm, and 118kg respectively. The bike is not very light when compared to most 110cc bikes, but this keeps the bike stable at high speeds. This bike also has a very short wheelbase of 1285mm, which makes it quite compact but also makes it stable at the corners.
Engine and Transmission:
The Bajaj CT110 X has a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, and 115cc engine. The engine is fuel injected and air-cooled. The engine pumps out around 8.6PS at 7000rpm and 9.81Nm of torque at 5000rpm. The power is quite adequate compared to other bikes of this range. The fuel injection of the bike allows it to be quite fuel efficient, which is why the range of the bike is expected to be around 65kmpl. It has both electric (self) and kick start.
The Bajaj CT110 X also has a basic wet multi-plate clutch system. There are 4 gears for the transmission, which means the engine is quite strong. It has a top speed of around 90kmph (Company claimed).
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The Bajaj CT110 X comes with dual brake setup. Both the rear and front brakes are drum brakes. This allows the manufacturer to save some money. However, it would have been better if the price was slightly higher with a single disk. However, Bajaj has made sure to provide the bike with a combi braking system (CBS), which puts the braking performance of the bike above basic drum brakes. It also increases the safety of the bike.
The Bajaj CT110 X comes with a telescopic fork set up at the front and a spring-in-spring twin shock setup at the rear. The overall suspension setup is expected to be slightly softer to mitigate the off-road bumps and jerks. The softer suspension also discourages the riders to lean at corners.
The Bajaj CT110 X has alloy wheels. It has 2.75/17 and a 3.00/17 tire setup. The tires are slightly thin. Slightly thicker tires would have been better for the rider’s comfort and control. However, for a bike of this caliber, the tires would be adequate.
The Bajaj CT110 X is for the adventurous people on a budget. This bike is great for the people who are looking for a bike they can comfortably ride through the bumpy and slightly adventurous rural and mountainous roads. This bike is also a good commuter, so if you are looking for a bike that looks unique when you are stuck in traffic, this bike is for you.
The Bajaj CT110 X is a very unique bike in this particular segment. However, the ones that are rivals to this particular bike are:
1) Honda Livo 110 Drum.
2) Suzuki Hayate.
3) TVS Radeon.
4) Victor-R Classic 100.

bikes. The Bajaj CT110 X is a great bike with great potential. The Bajaj CT110 X was made to squeeze
