Bajaj Platina 100
Introduction: Platina is a reliable name in the biking industry of Bangladesh. When bikers think about this name, a modest looking, reliable bike from BAJAJ comes onto their mind. Uttara Motors Ltd. is the distributor of BAJAJ Platina 100 in Bangladesh, as like other BAJAJ bikes. It was an upgraded version of one of the most sold BAJAJ bikes in Bangladesh in the commuter segment.
History: BAJAJ had first started the Platina series back in 2006 with a 100cc model both in India and Bangladesh. Following its success path, the company has launched many new models in its timeline. The engine capacity of these variances ranged from 100cc to 125cc in different times. The version we are discussing about has a 100cc DTS-i engine and was first launched in India in 2009 and it was also launched in Bangladesh the same year.
Features: Key feature of BAJAJ Platina 100 are its looks and ergonomics. The bike provides a very good commuting experience and the looks and dimensions helps in this matter too. The bike has a decent analog instrument cluster which are reliable and standard. Apart from these, the bike resembles a very commuter-friendly stance and hence, the looks are very likeable by the riders. The bike comes with 5-spoke alloy wheels and refreshed colors too.
The available color options of BAJAJ Platina 100 in Bangladesh are:
- Black with Red decals
- Red with Silver decals
- Blue with Silver decals
This bike has a familiar yet not so familiar stance of the traditional rider-friendly bike it has ever been. The newly painted body and sporty-looking decals have increased the presence of the bike on the street. All these changes make up for a good facelift from the previous version.
Body Dimensions: The BAJAJ Platina 100 is a great performing motorcycle. Thanks to its Single Down Tube frame, it ensures proper handling dynamics while riding the bike. The wheelbase is 1255 mm which helps keep the 108 kg bike stable while riding. The bike has an 11.5 liter fuel tank to feed the engine through the carburetor.
The overall length of BAJAJ Platina 100 is 2000mm while the width and height are 840mm and 1060mm. The ground clearance is kept at 190mm for optimum performance in every road condition.
Engine & Transmission: BAJAJ Platina 100 possesses a 102 cc, 4 Stroke, single cylinder, DTS-i Twin Spark ExhausTEC engine that is air cooled. This mill’s Power & Torque figures are as follows: 8.02 PS @7500 RPM & 8.06 Nm @ 5000 RPM. The engine is mated to a 4-speed transmission and can be started both with a kick starter as well as an electric starter.
Suspension, Brakes, Wheels: The suspension system has a dual telescopic system up front with 125mm travel and an SNS suspension set with 100mm travel at the rear. The front and rear brakes are both of 110mm Drum type. Both the wheels have 5 spokes and are 17” in diameter. The front tyre is 2.75*17 41P and the rear wheel comes equipped with a 3.00*17 50P tyre, which both are unidirectional and provides adequate support and confidence while riding.
Best For: The BAJAJ Platina 100 is targeted to the commuters of the country. City riding is a breeze in this motorcycle. Service holders and small business owners are the main customers of this motorcycle who need to commute reliably and comfortably in and around the town. Many middle aged users also use this bike daily for their need of commuting and short inter-city riding.
Many people in small town and rural areas of the country, take a Platina for granted when they think to go for a 100cc commuter. The motorcycle easily allows the user to do in-city and some inter-city commutes too, thanks to its comfortable seating arrangement for both the rider as well as the pillion. So, young family persons and couples would be thankful to BAJAJ for thinking about their needs of love & care.

The competitors were having a tough fight from BAJAJ Platina 100 for their price for its commuter-friendly styling bits and the trust of the reliable motor Platina 100 has.
