The suspension duties on the commuter bike are handled by telescopic fork up front and dual shock absorbers on the rear.
As for the pocket-pinch, the BS6 Bajaj Platina 110 H Gear is priced at Rs. 59,802. At this price point, the commuter bike takes on the likes of Hero Super Splendor, Honda SP 125, and TVS Sport.
