Bajaj Auto has officially launched the Platina 100 Kick-Start or KS variant in the Indian market for a price tag of INR 40,500 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and this machine now gets a CBS (Combined Braking System). The bike can now be booked across all Bajaj dealerships throughout India and is cheaper by roughly INR 7,000 as compared to the Platina ES (Electric Start) model.
