10Bajaj Platina 100 ComforTec
The mass market motorcycle segment in India is one such category that is majorly responsible for keeping the cash register ringing of two-wheeler giants. In a price sensitive economy like ours, where people are too conscious about the value for money quotient, auto companies are left with no option but to deliver products that not only prove their worth but also go less hefty on the pockets.
And when we talk about motorcycles, thankfully, the options are good even when you have a not so high budget. Having said that, here we bring you the list of five best two-wheelers in India that you can buy for under Rs 50,000.
Bajaj Auto launched the more comfort oriented version of its popular entry level commuter Platina with a suffix ComforTec next to ita few months back. The motorcycle flaunts of a better suspension set up than other motorcycles in this segment and Bajaj claims that this bike minimises the jerks by 20 percent in comparison to its rivals.
The Pune-based manufacturer further claims that the Bajaj Platina 100 ComforTec has been fitted with longer front and rear suspension and the latter being the dual spring type, offers a much comfortable ride.
