    Nice post arnuld. I'm waiting for the launch of new platina. I'm confused between Ct100b and platina 100es. I want a bike for touring. My budget is 50k. So these two bikes seems to be best. They both are leading in terms of power and mileage. Platina have advantage of alloy wheels, high ground clearance (190mm),self start and dtsi engine. Where as Ct100b is 16k cheaper than platina.

    Expereince After 1600 km


    There are somethings I have learned about biking now:

    1. Mileage: After I hit reserve then I rode for another 25 km and then filled 1.5L petrol because I could not find a petrol pump nearby. I put it in normal ON position and I hit next reserve after 88 km more. How you calculate mileage with this data ? I did simple (88+25)/1.5L = 75.3 - 5 (for error) = 70 L per km. Before 1st service mileage was 80 because I filled 3 liter of petrol and it went for 240 km before stopping. Why mileage reduced ? check next point.
    2. Driving Style vs Mileage: I rode rough after I filled 1.5L of petrol . Rough means I will go at speeds beyond 50 on fly-overs/empty-roads/ROBs/OBs (Railway Over-Bridge/Over-Bridge). I will speed when I empty space in front of me and then suddenly brake and slwo down to 10-15 km lesser speed and shift gear then. All in 10 seconds. Looking at traffic light still RED, I will go at high speed and then slow down very fast to stand in front queue. This style of riding was just for the mileage test. This all affects the mileage by 10-15 km. So I guess, 80-85 is still the mileage this bike has.



    Riding-Method:
    Generally, I ride like a real, boring commuter :
    1. I will not go over speed 45-47 even if I am on empty roads.
    2. I will observe from 1/2 km away that traffic lights are RED now, so I will slowly de-accelerate and then at speed 30 I will shift to gear 3 and then use the 3rd gear to slow down more and then below 20 I will shift to 2nd and so on. This way I take help of low-gear to slow down rather than like my fellow commuters around who go very fast at first and then slow down using brake and suddenly shift all gears at very low speed.
    3. When I see GREEN light from 1/2 km away then I don't accelerate like crazy, I will just go at my ususal riding-method
    4. I observe the traffic from 300-500 meters away, where it is more crowded, where they are slowing down and speeding up, I also notice the bumpers. You can't see the bumber but you can see vehicles bumping at some distance. Looking at all this I get mentally ready to change my speed & gear beforehand.
    5. I never ever ride according to how the fellow commuters are driving. I just try to avoid habits that lead the road accidents and above are 4 of them. People drive too dangerous on the road I observed. They drive like they don't care about their legs or hands or face and neither for the other riders. They just don't want to give a thought on the reasons behind road-accidents in general. 90%of the deaths that happen in road-accidents, happen on 2-wheelers. So, don't ride looking at how others are driving around you, use your common-sense on your ability to control, your reaction-times to sudden changes/brakes/pots/ swoosh-ing bikes/cars that pass beside you without honking. Practice a bit of sudden braking and gear shifting at some safe place and learn to control the bike. Everyone has different way of using clutch/brake/gears and reacting to sudden changes on roads. Practice it.
    6. When you are behind a car, just keep some good distance like 50 meters because if you are nearer to the car and there is some pot or broken road or lot of water then he will just get over that part of road by keeping that part in the middle of his car because he got 4 wheels, he can just get away with it easily but you cant and you will hit that part most probably. I hope you understand my English .
    7. Don't drive some else's bike at high speed because you don't know how it behaves and how it reacts to your hands/feet and how much it can support your method of riding.
    8. You need to drive safe and slow not just because you dont want to do any mistakes. It is because you want to save yourself from other rider's mistakes and there gonna be lot of them on road.


    What I learned is: it is all a matter of habit how you drive and habits are formed unknowingly for sure but then again you can be concious of the way you ride your bike and see if you riding rough, fast, too much brake, etc. and last but not the least, many tips and real life experiences in xbhp threads teach a lot about bike and riding

    Thanks. I am very Happy for finally took out time and wrote this. Your comments are appreciated.

    @arnuld
    Bro very good review. I have a Bajaj Platina and it gives me around 70km/l(R2R Method). because of my driving style i get little bit low mileage. It can easily give 75km/l with good driving.

    One thing i dont like about platina is the seat height which is not very suitable for me(I am little above than 5'1"). One question is the ct100B have lower seat height than platina?

    Hello Rahul.

    My Platina is of 2012 Model which is a kick start version. Model Name is Platina 100. I bought it in the same year. There is no irritating vibration i felt till now but there is mild handle vibration when at idle. Top speed is 90+ km when riding solo but it takes time after 75km/h to reach that point. The bike is smooth at 60-65 km/h. you can cruise all the day with that speed. mileage is 70+ km/l. but i believe that one can achieve better fuel economy with sedate driving(Its hugely depending on driving style). About highway behavior i can say that it is not for cruising but for commuting. I do not recommend you to drive it above 70 or 75kmph because there is no disc brake and also the drum brakes are of 110mm(you can go with higher speed if the road is empty)Also if there is sand or mud then dive very slowly as it have tendency to skid on sands and mud but on road it is good. However the brakes are adequate for stopping. I always use double brake technique in any bike(It is my habit). About long journey, i did a 500+ kms round trip (which is of Purulia to Kolkata and back with pillion) with some halts (for some butt break and pea break also for some food) and there is no problem found. The bike is good, but my problem is the seat height as i am a short person.

    Any particular reason to buy scooty. Apart from its luggage carrying abilities and gear free riding.

    No. My Platina is comfortable for me. But its height is a bit more for me (sometimes i dont get confidence in crowded area with pillion due to this). my area is now more crowded and its increasing insanely so i have to find an automatic with space(for groceries and all that).
