The Platina 110 H-Gear sports a digital console with a ‘Gear-Shift-Guide’, trip-meter & fuel indicator. The ‘Gear-Shift-Guide’ is basically an indicator which tells the rider which gear would be perfect depending on the combination of gear & speed at which the bike is running. This helps improve the fuel efficiency a bit and enables the rider to keep the bike on the appropriate gear. The Platina 110 H-Gear also features an all-new feather-touch gear shift mechanism for easy and quick gear changes.
