Besides the BS6-complaint motor, the 2020 Bajaj Platina 100 receives minor cosmetic upgrades. The coloured cowl has been replaced with a tinted windscreen. While the headlamp unit remains unchanged, the LED DRL has been moved slightly towards the headlight. The commuter also gets a new seat with ribbed pattern as we have seen in the Platina 110 H-Gear.
With features such as extra-long double spring rear suspension, spring-soft seat, directional tyre and rubber footpad are claimed to improve its riding comfort. The commuter derives its braking power from 130mm front and 110mm rear drum brakes, further assisted by CBS (Combi braking system). No changes have been made to the 2020 Bajaj Platina 100 dimensions.
