It is one of the few oldest model of motorcycle in Bajaj company in Bangladesh after separating with Japanese Kawasaki company. Due to most reasonable price, CT 100 dominated Bangladeshi market once. Though, currently, it’s demand is not so smarter because people wants to but latest models of motorcycle nowadays.

So, though many latest models of motorcycle are currently available in market but it does not mean that CT 100 is losing their dominance. Still now, among 100 cc bikes in Bangladesh, it is one of the most reasonable price motorcycle along with powerful engine. So, before making any final comment, let’s find out below about the positive and negative sides of the bike below.
Design & looks: Due to be the old model bike, Bajaj CT 100 is a bit old looks motorcycle with simple category fuel tank. Though, it completely familiar with standard category bikes. It would not be the first choice of young generation but for bit older people those who has small budget for motorcycle can easily buy this.
Engine performance: The engine of the bike is almost meet all the demands of standard category which has 99.27 cc that can generate 8.1 Bhp @ 7500 rpm maximum power along with 8.05 @ 4500 rpm maximum torque. Besides, the bike consists of natural air cooling system with single cylinder, four stroke engine technology. Digital CDI ignition system proves the bike as standard quality which has 53 mm bore and 45 mm stroke.
Dimensions & seating position: 1945 mm length, 770 mm width and 1072 mm height, the bike seems bigger than looks. It’s ground clearance is 169 mm which is pretty enough to avoid speed breaker easily. Besides, it has 1235 mm wheelbase which is just like as standard bike. As 100 cc bike, it’s net weight is 108 kg which is completely suitable for the bike and there is a good seating position which can take more than one pillion on it. It’s fuel tank is bigger than looks which can contains 10.5 litres fuel along with 2.4 litres reserve fuel capacity.
Suspension & Brakes: The front suspension of the bike is hydraulic, telescopic type and the rear suspension is Trailing arm with coaxial hydraulic shock absorber and coil springs. The suspensions are good which will help the riders on high low and the rural streets and causes no pain. However, the both brakes are drum where if there is disc brake used in front, it would be better for controlling. Though, wheels are made by spoke but the company should use alloy wheels instead of spoke.
Mileage: Most of the Indian motorcycles are better for heavy mileage and in the case of CT 100, it can provide more than 67 km mileage average which would cross 72 on the highway. It is a great mileage for middle income people who needs to run plenty km per day.
Instrument Panel & Features: The instrument panels are good but completely analog. It consists of analog speedometer and analog odometer. The headlight quality is comparatively lower which needs to improve.
Colors & Price: Two colors of Bajaj CT 100 is currently available in Bangladesh which are Red and Black. The current market price of the bike in Bangladesh is BDT 95,500 which seems completely affordable for mid income people.
