The Bajaj Platina 110 is powered by 115cc single-cylinder 2-valve air-cooled DTS-i engine. It produces 8.6PS of power at 7000rpm and 9.81Nm of torque at 5000rpm. This, coupled with a 4-speed transmission allows the motorcycle to reach a claimed top speed of 90kmph.

The Hero Splendor Plus has been updated with IBS (Integrated Braking System). IBS is essentially Hero’s jargon for Combined Braking System (CBS). This system applies the front brake partially when the rear brake is applied, thus giving greater confidence to the rider while coming to a halt.

The former is priced at Rs 50,860 while the latter costs Rs 52,860, both ex-showroom prices.

It starts the engine back up automatically when the clutch lever is pulled. This helps in conserving fuel, especially in places where there’s a lot of traffic.
