Save for the addition of a disc brake, there will be no other changes and the bike will feature the same styling, and mechanicals as its current drum brake version.

For the record, the BS 6-compliant Platina 100 range runs on a 102 cc, single-cylinder powertrain which is capable of producing 7.77 PS of maximum power at 7,500 rpm and 8.34 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 4-speed transmission. As per the official claims it has a top speed of 90 kmph.

Some of the key features expected on the new bike include a halogen headlight with LED DRL, tinted visor, long suspension travel and spring soft seat for comfortable ride quality. It will also feature rubber footpads for enhanced pillion comfort.

The 2020 Platina 100 ES disc brake is yet to be listed on Bajaj Auto’s official website. Expect it to be launched in the coming few weeks.
