Default Bajaj Platina 110 with single-channel ABS launched

Bajaj has silently launched a new variant of the Platina 110. The bike now comes with single-channel ABS.

The ABS on the Platina 110 is unlike most bikes. It has a single 240 mm disc brake at the front and a drum brake with an ABS ring at the rear. Bajaj calls it the "Anti-Skid Braking System".

The Platina 110 gets LED daytime running lights, quilt-stitched seat, wide rubber footpads and tank pads. The bike also gets a redesigned analogue instrument cluster and painted alloy wheels.

The Platina 110 is powered by a 102cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled DTS-i engine that produces 7.8 BHP @ 7,500 rpm and 8.3 Nm @ 5,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 4-speed transmission.

The bike is equipped with 135 mm telescopic fork suspension at the front and gets 110 mm Nitrox shock absorbers at the rear.

Wow! Brilliant!
I've seen a lot of videos on Youtube where the reviewers mention that since most Indians majorly use rear brakes most of the times instead of using both according to situations, the rear wheel often tends to lock up and skid.

Having such a low-cost set-up may provide a good amount of safety during panic braking. I've been in a situation when my friend's Honda Unicorn skidded under hard braking and the rear hit an auto-rickshaw. I was the pillion and my leg somehow escaped being banged against it.

This feature is more important than blinding the oncoming traffic with LED light headlamp which is restricted to DRL here methinks.

Kudos Bajaj!

For a lowly eco-commuter that bike has surprisingly nice looking alloy wheels!

Don't mistake this for rear wheel ABS. The ABS works only on the front hydraulic disc brake. The rear is a conventionally operated drum brake.

The purpose of the wheel speed sensor ring on the rear wheel is prevent the rear wheel lifting under very hard front brake actuation.

I see it's not available on the H-Gear variant. Maybe they are looking at the cost factor. Taking this as reference, it will be good if other manufacturers can also think of doing this at least as an optional variant.

What's a H-gear variant? I've heard about a "5 speed H-gear" variant, but don't know what it means.

H-Gear stands for Highway gear. As you correctly told it has the 5th gear and expected to have less strain on highway speeds (whatever that is platina capable of). This also comes with elongated seat padding but I haven't commuted in that so cannot comment if it's useful. The online ownership reviews claim some out of the world fuel efficiency in this bike but we need to also understand it certainly is influenced by the usage pattern and purpose used for commutation.

H means "Highway" gear
Normal Platina: 4-speed gearbox
H-gear Platina: 5-speed gearbox, the 5th one being the H-gear.
So basically an overdrive gear like they had in old 3-4 speed AT cars.

Rear Wheel Lift Protection is just a fancy way / marketing speak to say the Front Wheels has got ABS (Stoppies aren't possible on a front wheel with ABS)

ABS operates when the System detects that the Front and Rear wheels starts to rotate in different speeds, which means that one of the wheels might be locking up. The Rear Wheel on this bike like any other Single Channel ABS bike has to have the rear wheel speed sensor and that's why the rings.

Why not? A stoppie doesn't need a locked front wheel.
