Bajaj CT100 ES has been spotted testing in Pune with some minor changes. The entry-level workforce of the company is yet to be updated with CBS.
Bajaj Auto is gearing up for launching its updated lineup this month. Ahead of an official launch, its entry-level commuter motorcycle, CT100 was spotted testing in Pune.
Bajaj CT100 ES is the top-end variant that has been spotted. Visible changes onboard include a refreshed exhaust system and the inclusion of Combined Braking System (CBS).
From next month, as per the safety regulations, two-wheelers under 125cc should be equipped with CBS and above 125cc motorcycles with ABS. Post April 2020, all the engines will be updated as per the BS-6 norms.
Speculations suggest that the spotted Bajaj CT100 might be carrying a tuned engine, for the BS-6 norms. To keep the carbon emissions under control, most of the two-wheelers will soon get fuel-injection system.
That said, it has been spotted testing with CBS. The another brake wire flowing from the rear brake to the front brake confirms the safety feature.
Other than these two upgrades, we cannot spot any further changes. Overdrive has spotted the Bajaj CT100 in the top-end ES variant which gets alloy wheels and an electric starter.
CT100 is the most affordable Bajaj motorcycle, which is followed by Platina and Discover. It remains the third best selling motorcycle from the company, behind Bajaj Platina and Pulsar 150.
Bajaj CT100 ES gets a 102cc natural air-cooled engine, that delivers 7.7 BHP and 8.24 Nm of peak torque. The other two lower variants use a 99.27cc engine that delivers 8.2 BHP and 8.05 Nm of peak torque.
For suspension it uses telescopic forks at the front and twin-coiled shock absorbers at the back. Braking is handled by 130mm drum brakes at both the ends.
Bajaj CT100 is priced starting from Rs 32,000 up to Rs 40,883 (ex-showroom). It goes against the likes of TVS Star City and Hero Splendor.
