How much the design of the Bajaj Platina looks appealing to anyone is a matter of personal preference. Because the motorbike remains in the lower-tier motorbike segment, the outlook hasn’t been paid much attention but the mileage and engine specifications had been. Yet the design is impressive for a motorbike of this class, there’s enough style elements that Bajaj Platina has. The spokes on the wheels have more gap than the more powerful ones, that’s because this motorbike wouldn’t need very compact spokes to offer protection against breaking in much higher speed. The cowling in front, domed headlight housing, protruding indicator stands and the rear view mirrors are all suited to the main body color – nothing looks unadjusted or weird on top of the basic design language. The seat is pretty much straight, unlike the motorbikes with divided seats. For family usage, this wouldn’t create an issue. However, it’s a matter of personal preference and if someone prefers the rear pillion seat to be in higher levels than the rider seat, the Bajaj Platina might not be the motorbike they are looking for.
The regular Bajaj Platina comes in three colors – black maroon, black and flaming red. However, there’s a DTS-i engine version of the Bajaj Platina that comes in three different colors – ebony black, electron blue and candy red.
