In terms of mechanicals, the bike draws power from a 115 cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine featuring an electronic fuel injection system. The engine is rated to deliver 6.33 KW (8.6 PS) of power at 7000 rpm and 9.81 Nm torque at 5000 rpm. Its transmission unit is a four-speed unit.
Apart from ABS, the new Platina also comes with the company's 'ComforTec package' which includes features such as quilted seats, a Nitrox spring-on-spring suspension and tubeless tyres. The new ABS safety on the Platina comes coupled to a 240 mm front disc brake.
