Should Bajaj launch a disc brake variant, the new Platina 100 ES Disc Brake model will be only Rs 3,827 more expensive than the ES drum brake variant, and Rs 10,112 more expensive than the Platina KS models. The new motorcycle will become the top-of-the-line trim in Bajaj’s Platina range of motorcycles.

Interestingly, the Bajaj Platina ES Disc Brake model is only Rs 3,526 cheaper than the Platina 110 H-Gear that features a more powerful, 115.5cc engine that produces 8.3bhp and 9.81Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a five-speed gearbox.

Priced at Rs 62,899, ex-showroom, the Bajaj Platina H-Gear also features a semi-digital instrument cluster, a gear position indicator, and disc brake at the front, making it a more appealing motorcycle than the Platina ES Disc Brake model.
