The bike is powered by a 99.27 cc motor that bangs out 8.2PS of power and 8.04 Nm of torque mated to a 4 speed transmission. Bajaj Auto claims it has a top speed of 90kmph and an unmatched fuel efficiency of 89.5 kmpl.

Both the motorcycles feature 110mm disc brakes at the front and back, with no option of installing a front disc brake. Both the models are different from each other when compared closely.

The design of the fuel tank is slightly different and the capacity of the CT 100 is lower at 10.5 when compared to the Platina`s 11.5 litre tank. The Platina boasts of a higher fuel efficiency (96.9kmpl), which is 7.4 kmpl more than the CT. The tyres on the CT are Eurogrip while the Platina comes with TVS ATT 1050. The Kerb weight of both the bikes is the same but the Platina 100ES has a better ground clearance (190mm) and a longer wheelbase (1250mm).

The ex-showroom price difference between both the bikes is 10,000 which makes the CT better value for money.
