Default Yes possible

I have done this chennai to bangalore trip on Pulsar 200 thrice without any problem.
I have seen people doing chenna to bangalore run in their Yamaha RX100's and splendors so i guess your bike can take this on easily.

Just take your bike to a bajaj showroom or any good mechanic and check with them about this before you travel.

First off all, this bike is not 115cc, its 111.63 cc. The bore X stroke dimensions are 53.0mm X 50.6mm.
It is one of the last good built bike from bajaj.
You can go ahead and do this journey without any problem. I have seen people doing 400 kms+ in a day on 100cc bikes, and caliber 115 is reasonably high geared, so it can do it in rather a bit more relaxed mode as compared to other 100-110cc bikes.

Carry ORS mixed water to drink.
Wear your helmet.
See if you can manage knee and elbow guards.
Wear gloves.
Get your bike checked at a good service center for the long drive readyness.
I have owned a caliber, it rides very well. You can comfortably do 500 km in a day on it. I did 300 km on quite a few occasions.

I have a 2003 Caliber 115 with 77k on the odo. Long drives are not really an issue. Get your bike serviced and change all the cables if they are tight. Replace brake shoes if needed. Carry a spare spark plug.

Drink lots of water. Halt every 100km for about 15-20 mins.
