- Bajaj CT 100 BS6 prices increased for the second time
- Kick-start and electric-start variants are Rs 1,497 more expensive now
- Competes against the Hero Splendor Plus and TVS Sport
Bajaj Auto has increased the price of its entry-level commuter, the CT 100 BS6, in India. The motorcycle has become Rs 1,497 more expensive now. It is available in two variants – kick-start and electric-start which are priced at Rs 42,790 and Rs 50,470 (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). Notably, this is the second price hike it has received after the recent one last month.
In spite of the increased prices, the Bajaj CT 100 BS6 continues to be one of the most affordable motorcycles on sale in India. It is largely targeted at customers who want an affordable, low-maintenance and fuel-efficient motorcycle for daily use. A majority of its demand comes from rural markets where durability and reliability of two-wheelers are top priorities.
The CT 100 is underpinned by a single down tube chassis which cradles a 102cc, air-cooled, electronic injected engine that comes mate to a four-speed gearbox. This mill produces 7.7bhp at 7,500rpm and 8.34Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. Weighing at 114kgs, it rides on 17-inch wheels which are suspended by telescopic forks up front and dual shock absorbers at the rear. Stopping power comes from drum brakes at both ends with combined braking setup.
