Bajaj has announced a price hike in the month of May 2020
World’s third largest motorcycle manufacturer with presence in more than 70 countries, Bajaj Auto has increased prices on several of its motorcycles. The revised prices are effective from May 9, 2020. Prices have been hiked only marginally, so it’s unlikely to have any significant impact on sales.
Bajaj’s popular commuter bikes CT 100 and CT 110 are now pricier in the range of Rs 499 to Rs 749. The most affordable products in Bajaj’s portfolio, CT 100 and CT 110 are counted among the most fuel-efficient bikes in the country. Many users have claimed to have derived 100 km per litre from their Bajaj CT 100.
Bajaj had updated both bikes to BS6 in January 2020. To comply with the new emission norms, the bikes are equipped with new components such as catalytic converter, oxygen sensor, revised EVAP (Evaporative Emission Control System) unit and e-carburettor with electronic injection (EI).
Prices of Platina and Platina H Gear have been increased in the range of Rs 498 to Rs 749. Bajaj Platina has the same BS6 102 cc air-cooled engine as that of CT 100. On the other hand, Platina H Gear comes with a 110 cc engine. Apart from BS6 update, Bajaj has introduced 13 changes in the new 2020 Platina.
