Bajaj working on a 110cc CNG-powered motorcycle

The Bruzer E101 CNG bike is rumoured to go on sale in the next 6-12 months.

According to a media report, Bajaj Auto is developing a 110cc motorcycle that can run on petrol and CNG.

Bajaj’s upcoming CNG-powered bike is known internally as the Bruzer E101, but the production version could adopt the ‘Platina’ name. The report claims that a few prototypes of the CNG bike have been built and that it is in its final stages of development.

The Bruzer E101 CNG bike is rumoured to go on sale in the next 6-12 months. Initially, the bike could be manufactured at Bajaj’s Aurangabad plant and eventually at the Pant Nagar facility as well. It is said that the company had planned to produce around 1-1.2 lakh units per annum, but has now revised its production plan to build 2 lakh units per year.

Bajaj has neither denied nor confirmed these reports. Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director of Bajaj Auto said, “We certainly want to extend this capability to cover two-wheelers which is not easy due to space, size and usage differences. We definitely want to expand the share of 'cleaner fuels' in our portfolio which includes the full spectrum of EV, ethanol, LPG and CNG. You can be sure of this in both 2WS and 3Ws - this alignment with society and government is very important for us.”
