This engine is capable of producing a top power output of 8bhp and 8.7Nm. The same engine also powers the Discover 100M, but it offers high state of tune- 9bhp and 9.02Nm of torque.
Talking about styling, the new Platina looks largely remains the same. However, the company has added new side panels, tweaked headlamps, new body graphics and new exhaust system to keep things fresh in the market.
