Pune-based bike maker Bajaj Auto Ltd has unveiled CT110X at a price of INR 55,494 in an effort to boost sales of its 100-110cc bikes while capitalising on demand for luxury models and introducing an all-new top-end model to its mass commuter CT lineup (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The CT110X will be positioned above the CT100, Bajaj Auto’s most affordable motorcycle, as well as the CT110 ES or electric start models. The CT110 ES version has been in higher demand than the CT100, according to the company.
CT and the Platina series sold more than 7.34 lakh units in 2020-21, and Bajaj is the second-largest player in the entry-level motorcycle segment after Hero MotoCorp Ltd, with the Pulsar range of motorcycles.
The latest CT110X features a larger fuel tank, thicker crash guard, dual texture and dual stitched premium seat, and is powered by the validated 115cc DTS-i engine, which produces a peak power output of 6.33kW at 7500rpm and a torque of 9.81Nm at 5000 rpm.
CT110X comes with a rear carrier that can accommodate up to 7kg and is available in four different colours. The latest model features a semi-double-cradle structure, which adds flexibility and sturdiness while providing balanced rider power, according to the brand.
The semi-knobby tyres, along with a ground clearance of 170mm and a wheelbase of 1285mm, provide stability and solid grip on rugged terrains, while the incorporated tank pads and a raised front fender give the model durability, according to the company.
“With the introduction of the CT110X, we are introducing a unique model that adds value through superior features, increased ride convenience, and reliability without sacrificing mileage. We’re putting rider-centric creativity at the heart of the CT brand, and we’re sure that our newest offering, the CT110X, can help us better serve our customers in this segment,” said Sarang Kanade, Bajaj Auto’s president of motorcycles.
