New Bajaj CT100 and CT100B Expert Review - Check Advantage and Disadvantage
Keeping in mind the need of many Indians, Bajaj has launched one of the most fuel efficient bikes in the country(Actually, relaunched after discontinuing the same variant in India). The CT100 priced at Rs 33,632(Ex-Showroom, Delhi) and CT100B(Beta) at Rs 30,990(Ex-Showroom, Delhi) is the best ever price in the industry, claims Bajaj.
New Bajaj CT100 and CT100B Design & Exterior
There isn't much changed in looks than the outgoing model. With the addition of Alloy wheels(wheelbase 1235 mm and ground clearance of 169 mm), new body graphics and a new exhaust which directly taken from the Platina. Now, Bajaj has further cut down 3000 in the CT100B which makes it the best deal. But, it also gets a cosmetic makeover(on the lower side) in the process. Basically, it is the more basic variant of the CT100 with spoke wheels. Aluminum grab handles are replaced with plain steel. The chrome rear has also been replaced with tinted black one. Another major difference between the two is the headlight. While the CT100b gets a round headlamp the CT100 gets a cowl. The CT100B gets a rear carrier instead of a grab handle on the CT100.
Dimensionally, CT100B measures 1975x770x1065 mm whereas CT100 measures 1965(1945 mm for the alloy wheels)x770x1072 mm. Both the bikes get a simplistic instrument cluster with Speedometer, Odometer and another dial for the basic indicators like Upper Beam, Neutral, and blinkers. Also, there is no auto return switch for the blinkers neither push button switches for canceling the blinkers.
New Bajaj CT100 and CT100B Specification
All the variants of CT100 get the same 99.27cc single cylinder, air-cooled engine which produces a power of 8.2 PS @7,500 rpm and torque of 8.05 Nm @4,500 rpm which is mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The engine is bit altered in Bajaj CT100B to offer more mileage. The CT100B offers a great fuel efficiency of 99.1 kmpl as claimed by Bajaj whereas the standard CT100 offers 89.5 kmpl(as tested by ARAI).
Like the engine, all the variants get a hydraulic, telescopic type suspension at the front and trailing arm with co- axial hydraulic shock absorber and coil springs, SNS type suspension at the rear which will absorb the potholes more effectively. Both ends receive the 110mm drum brakes which are sufficient for a bike of this caliber.
