Here Are The Top 5 Reasons To Buy Bajaj CT 100

India imports a majority of its crude oil reserves from other nations. It means that the retail price of essential fuels like petrol will always be expensive here, for the foreseeable future.

Hence, it is no wonder that Indians will always consider mileage as a USP. Especially, when they are purchasing a personal vehicle like a motorcycle! Taking this mindset into consideration, Indian motorcycle manufacturers introduced quite a few mileage bikes in India. One of those bikes is the Bajaj CT 100.

The following sections will shed light on some aspects that make the CT 100 a bestseller from Bajaj.

Ride quality and handling are superb

The CT100 is built on a single-cradle frame. Truth be told – the cradle frame chassis is borrowed from the Platina range. Hence, it is natural for the CT 100 to offer amazing ride quality. At low speeds, the CT 100 feels well-balanced.

Hence, manoeuvring the bike in the crowded streets of the city will be pretty easy. The best part is that even at high speeds on the highway, the rider can quickly overtake other vehicles. The sudden changes in the lean angles are buffered seamlessly by the bike without scaring the rider.

The suspensions of the bike are set for comfort. To put things into perspective, the front fork suspension travel has been increased by 125 mm. The increase in suspension travel allows the bike’s body to remain relatively steady even on rough roads. The twin rear Sprint-iN-Spring suspensions are set to keep the rider(s) comfortable on both short and long trips.
