Bajaj Auto has just launched the all-new CT110 commuter motorcycle – an entry level offering. The 2019 Bajaj CT110 will rival the likes of the Hero MotoCorp Splendor and the Honda Dream 110 range of commuter motorcycles. The new CT110 is priced at Rs. 37,997 ex-showroom Delhi for the kick start variant while the electric starter equipped variant is priced at Rs. 44,480. The motorcycle is available in three colours: green, black and red. It’s powered by a 115cc DTSi four stroke engine that puts out 8.6 PS of peak power and 9.81 Nm of peak torque.
A four speed manual gearbox is standard with this single cylinder engine, whose biggest selling point is its stunning claimed fuel efficiency of 104 Kmpl. With a 10.5 liter fuel tank in tow, the Bajaj CT110 can technically go over 1,000 Kms without having to refuel. In the real world, such a high mileage figure is difficult to achieve, but the CT110 should be about to deliver between 70-80 Kmpl consistently, which still makes it one of the most fuel efficient motorcycles on the planet.
Mr. Sarang Kanade, President – Motorcycle Business had this to say about the all-new Bajaj CT110,
The CT range was conceptualized for those customers who demand a robust bike at a reasonable price. Till date more than 50 lakh customers are riding the CT and appreciate it for its durability and outstanding mileage. We have continuously invested in the product both in terms of technology and style without losing the core value of delivering the Best Value Motorcycle on the Indian roads. We believe that the tough new CT 110 provides an even better value with superior performance – a great combination of mileage and power – all at an attractive price.
The Bajaj CT110 gets a few changes. These changes include revised colours and body graphics, semi–knobby tyres, a raised ground clearance, new crash guards that Bajaj claims are stronger than before, upswept exhaust, rubber mirror covers and fork gaiters on the front suspension. The suspension continues to be telescopic front forks and twin rear shock absorbers.
The motorcycle is aimed at both city and rural buyers. In terms of pricing, the Bajaj CT110 undercuts the Hero Splendor massively, with a near Rs. 7,000 price difference. Among commuter motorcycle buyers, this is a large amount of money, and is likely to be the CT110’s biggest selling points. The CT110’s launch comes just ahead of India’s festive buying season, a time when sales typically spike if the monsoons are good.
