The Platina Comfortec is claimed to be 20% more comfortable than the best-selling rival.

Bajaj has attempted to improve the comfort level further by using a special seat foam which is dubbed as Soft Spring, and rubber foot pads. The overall setup is designed to offer 20% more comfort than the segment benchmark, says Bajaj.

The budget commuter features no other mechanical changes. The engine continues to be a 102 cc air-cooled 4-stroke DTS-i unit which is mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The power and torque outputs stand at 8.2 PS and 8.6 Nm respectively. The motorcycle is claimed to return a mileage of 104 kmpl.
