Bajaj Auto has silently launched its all-new affordable commuter bike in the country. The all-new model is called the CT 100B motorcycle and is priced attractively at Rs. 31,888 ex-showroom (Pune). It is currently unclear what the 'B' in CT 100B motorcycle stands for.
Powering the CT 100B will be the standard 97.2cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that does duty in the regular CT 100 model. The engine produces 8.08bhp along with 8.04Nm of peak torque output and is paired to a four-speed gearbox. Bajaj claims a fuel economy of 89.5 km/l with the new motorcycle.
In terms of design, the CT 100B will be identical to the regular CT 100 with a few omissions. A new round headlight replaces the bikini-type fairing. Bajaj Auto provides the CT 100B with an a steel grab rail and luggage rack instead of an aluminium grab rail.
Bajaj will continue offering same colour options on both the CT 100 and CT 100B. The engine will receive silver colour and the exhaust pipe is painted black. An extra long seat and stickers across the fuel tank will be standard between both motorcycles.
On February 1, 2016, Bajaj Auto will be showcasing its all-new executive commuter motorcycle. The new motorcycle will be made from the metal salvaged from the recent scrapping of India's first ever aircraft carrier, the INS Vikrant, which was decommissioned in January 1997. Recently, Bajaj shared a short teaser of the motorcycle via various mediums.
