Bajaj Auto’s entry-level commuter motorbike, the CT100, has now received an update in the form of an electric-start. This new CT100 Alloy ES has been launched at a preliminary price of Rs.38, 806 and will be obtainable at all authorized Bajaj Auto dealerships across India. The CT100 Alloy ES is powered by Bajaj’s 4-stroke, 102cc, single-cylinder engine, which produces 7.7hp of peak power and 8.24 Nm of highest torque, and is mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The new CT100 ES also gets a new set of decals, three color options, a new fuel gauge and flexible side indicators. The CT100 ES also gets an extra-long seat.
The manufacturer claims a 90kpl fuel economy and a top speed of 90kph. Eric Vas, President Bike Business, Bajaj Ltd said, “The CT100 is the most convincing offering in its segment; it delivers clienteles with superior mileage and now comes with the convenience of electric start. At an introductory price of Rs.38, 806- we expect the CT100 Electric Start version to gain a large number of customers at the entry-level 100cc commuter segment, just the way the CT100 kick-start had done two years ago.” CT100 Alloy (Rs.36, 521) and CT100B (Rs.32, 028) in kick-start versions will continue to sell alongside the new variant.
