Electric Start on the XCD 135 DTS-Si

Electric Start

The XCD 135 DTS-Si comes with the option of Electric Start. It comes as a boon in stop-start traffic conditions as it gives a one touch quick start and a hassle free ride experience.

Auto Choke

The XCD 135 DTS-Si also has an “Auto Choke” feature. This intelligent feature activates the choke whenever there is a need for it. There is no need for manual activation of the choke on the XCD 135 DTS-Si.

In low temperature conditions the fuel doesn’t vaporize properly, resulting in difficulty in starting the engine. To start the engine in such conditions, the Choke is usually activated. This device helps pulling in extra fuel to make the air fuel mixture richer, which is required to sustain operation at low engine temperatures.

In most other current Indian bikes the Choke has to be activated manually by the rider. But in the XCD 135 DTS-Si, there are temperature sensors which sense the low temperature and accordingly will automatically activate the “Auto Choke” for the rider.

    In my bike, this autochoke is misfunctioning. After riding the bike for half an hour, engine behaviour changes completely. I shown it to the authorized bajaj service center, they have identified it is due to autochoke technology implemented in this series. Service engineer raised the accelerator to some level and kept it at the same level for some time, engine doesn't rise constantly - means RPM is not constant. I have to show it to sai service center,phugewadi - pune.
