This is the second time in 2021 that CT and Platina range have undergone price revision
As may be recalled, Bajaj had increased prices of its motorcycles earlier this year in January. Along with CT and Platina range, prices were increased for most other motorcycles such as Pulsar range, Avenger and Dominar. Now, prices have been increased once again for CT and Platina range. It is possible that other Bajaj motorcycles may also witness a price hike in the coming months.
Bajaj’s move to increase prices is in line with industry trends. Most other two-wheeler manufacturers had increased prices at the time of New Year and later as well. In most cases, the price hike has been attributed to rising input costs. It includes higher cost of raw materials as well as increased handling and transportation charges.
