DO SCOOTER owners need sops than mere to tempt them to switch to a Apparently so! Well, motorcycles do not the same load carrying that scooters inherently with (thanks to the foot and floor design) and the more handling that bikes may not be suitable for older users.

But the of better comfort and much fuel efficiency should the bike’s package beguiling for the most hard-nosed scooter What is better, add a sweetener in the of pricing that is very to the average scooter, and we could be about the preferred mode of transport, somewhat like the tag in the ad for the Hero Honda CD Dawn.

this kind of a promising it is a race to stretch the litre and a decently built entry-level Coming into the battlefield, the Hero Honda CD Dawn and to extent the TVS Max 100 were slugging it out for the entry-level bike slot, is the new CT 100.

After the lacklustre performance of the Byk and the success of the Boxer series, has been under pressure to up with a more energetic and entry-level bike. Of course, to its experience with the Boxer the mandate for the CT 100 was clear even it actually rolled out of Bajaj assembly line.

Target the economy and value-for-money young bike buyer, new technology features but carefully so as not to the on-road price of the two-wheeler, build quality and trim closer to bikes in the higher ranges and at the same time it as close as possible to the price of a metal-bodied scooter.

These have been quite a mélange parameters to achieve for Until the company’s research and department discovered a new way to boost the fuel efficiency without much with the engine. As a the USP that was built into the CT 100 around these mileage-boosting

After all, with petrol prices, the need to the most out of every litre of is fast becoming the key determinant for a bike.

`Caliberisation’ of the Boxer

The CT design clearly takes a cue the Bajaj Caliber’s original The round headlamp with twin-pod instrument cluster, turn indicator lamps, the body side panels and the are giveaways. In fact, except for the rectangular fuel tank the design of the CT 100 is heavily accented the original fairingless looks of the

The build quality is a big plus Bajaj has managed to bring in to the This is also a crucial that buyers in this are beginning to expect despite the restraint of a competitive price. the quality of plastic parts and the are not on a par with bikes in the higher range, it is definitely a notch than the others in the Rs 28,000-32,000

The eye-catching decals on the fuel and body side panels and the wide seating that slopes upward and the chrome rail at the rear give the CT 100 the of a more expensive bike.

The series bikes were more austere and the seat was ergonomic, looking like a monolith in rubber. Thanks to the new and the handle that has been right, the riding posture in the new CT 100 is comfortable.

Chassis and build

The in the new CT 100 is the same tubular-type, with down tube and the traditional swing arm that the older bikes used to feature. The has been marginally cut to about compared to the Caliber’s wheelbase is some 20mm longer.

The set up is identical to the Boxer series telescopic in the front and the hydraulic, acting, swing arm type in the Overall, the chassis, slightly wheelbase and the saddle position go on to rider comfort and, it does not allow you to challenge turn and curbs the urge to up, it still gives the ride the amount of stiffness for a bike in its

The improved engine mounts reduce the vibration in the CT 100. previous attempts at manufacturing in the entry-level have been to considerable levels of vibration and in the long run. But the company’s RD has obviously worked on the CT 100’s mounts and chassis to considerably the vibration levels.

It is only the 70 km per hour mark that our bike showed signs of vibration setting in.

Engine and

The new CT 100 sports the same four-…, engine as on the Boxer. Only the of the block is a bit squarer than the burner. The new construction enables the engine to better burn the in the combustion chamber, enabling the to generate more power and torque.

This has been by tinkering with the engine and without employing more technology such as the Bajaj’s twin-spark ignition (DTSi) or the digital ignition maps TVS employs on its Centra and the new Victor GLX 125

The CT 100’s engine develops a leading 8.2bhp of peak at 7,500 rpm and a maximum torque of at 5,500 rpm. Though the peak power kicks in at a rpm-level, the loads of low-end that it comes with it come up with the right of performance for the rider whose is largely restricted to commutes the city. Compared to the CT 100, the TVS and the Hero Honda CD-Dawn peak power of only 7.5bhp.

The CT 100’s low-end torque the rider to get a near knock-free at speeds that would been impossible with the Boxer engine.

This torque spread gives the quite a high level of tolerance. As a result, frequent into a lower gear is not The feel of this performance is when the rider can let the bike to just 25-30 km per hour while continuing to be on fourth on a flat stretch.

Focus on efficiency

The low-end torque is one of the features that add to the CT 100’s to come up with a high number. Of course, the most bit of equipment in the CT 100 that aids in the bike’s mileage is the Ride switch.

The CT100’s unique control switch enables the to select between the economy and mode. It effectively gives the two options to choose — the economy for outstanding mileage or the power for pick-up and performance.

According to it is observed that inadvertently riders speed up in a lower or cruise at lower speeds in gear. This causes a of the bike’s performance in terms of and mileage. To achieve the best efficiency, motorcycles need to be in a specific range of rpm or speed in gear.

This is what manufacturers do testing the bike’s fuel under standard test

In the CT 100, unlike other where the rider has to take his off the road to look at the speedometer for deciding the range of best efficiency or where the bike’s selection system kicks in to the mode of operation (economy or as in the TVS Victor and Centra), the ride switch acts as a virtual

Bajaj’s RD, which came up the blue manual selection has achieved a lowering of fuel by simply reducing the play of the When the ride control is flicked on, the rider feels a resistance at the throttle whenever a change is required. The mild somewhat like the tightening of a mechanism, reduces the amount of wastage during quick of acceleration and when the bike is down.

The advanced throttle ignition control system technology, which helps in ignition map selection based on or operating conditions, has also introduced on the Bajaj CT 100. Thanks to its ignition with twin that helps in ensuring delivery of fuel economy, the control switch, the TRIC and the low-end torque, the CT 100 manages to up with a decent mileage

Good buy?

Our test managed about 68 km to a litre in riding conditions with a mix of when the ride control was either on or off.

Priced at Rs 31,500 (ex-showroom), the CT 100 is, as yet, best bet at taking on the strong of the Hero Honda CD-Dawn, the latter is priced a shade at Rs 31,000.

The CT 100 also seems to be the package of good looks, technology (though not in the league of its and high mileage, features should be attractive for the entry-level buyer.
