“The brand Platina has an unmatched proposition of comfort with over 7 million satisfied customers as a testament to its segment-leading attributes,” Bajaj Auto Head of Marketing Narayan Sundararaman said in a statement.
According to Sundararaman, the new Bajaj Platina 100 ES is targeted towards existing kick-start bike owners. The price point of the new bike is the reason why owners of kick-start bikes will want to make a switch to the new Platina 100 ES, Sundararaman claims.
