It’s actually the mid-range variant that has seen a really massive price cut. With a price reduction of Rs 6,835, the CT100 KS Alloy version costs just Rs 31,802. This is almost a thousand rupees cheaper than the earlier price of the base model. Even right now, the mid-level model is only about a thousand rupees costlier than the entry-level CT100B variant. It looks like Bajaj Auto Ltd plans to cash in on the growing demand for motorcycles in the rural sectors. Moreover, many farmers are likely to purchase an entry-level motorcycle from the money earned from the Rabi crop. With the CT100s getting more affordable, there are good chances of these motorcycles finding some more takers in the rural areas.
