One of the fastest growing segments in the motorcycle arena here in India, the current 125 cc class boasts quite a line-up of stylish motorcycles that offer a combination of style and comfort while holding true to their ability of running miles and miles on a limited capacity fuel tank. 

 

Already bubbling with well-established brands like the Yamaha (YBR 125), Suzuki (Slingshot), market-leader Honda (Shine, CBF) Stunner, and Hero Honda (Glamour), the motorcycle ‘class for the masses’ was missing but one cog in its chunky wheel, in the form of Bajaj Motors, which through its flagship products the Bajaj Pulsar and Bajaj Discover range of motorcycles has the two wheeler market in India firmly in its grasp. 

 

Having crossed the 1 million mark in overall exports and more importantly having sold more than 40 lakhs units of the Discover (125cc and 150cc models) quite recently, it was about time for the indigenous bike maker to bring in a DTS-i powered 100cc commuter that would give serious competition to existing favourites like the Honda Shine and Yamaha’s recent ET ZigWheels Executive 125cc Motorcycle of the Year, the YBR 125.

 

Behold the all new Bajaj Discover 125cc, that will join its popular siblings i.e. the Discover 100 and the Discover 150 to drive on the popularity of the Discover brand and fulfill the requirements of a significant chunk of customers who are looking to up the ante from their 100cc two wheeled transporters, to 125cc appealing yet cost effective commuters.

 

With outstanding power and pickup at the slightest twist of the wrist, the new Discover 125cc offers the customers the best of both the worlds i.e. Mileage & Power.

 

Commenting on the launch Mr. S. Sridhar, President Motorcycle Business, Bajaj Auto said, “Although we are riding high on the success of the Discover 100 and the Discover 150, there is still a significant base of commuters who prefer an optimum combination of mileage & power. The Discover 125 is expected to cater to the unfulfilled need of the above set of commuters and spread the Discover excitement across the commuter segment.”  

 

Equipped with a 5-speed gear box, the all new Discover 125cc DTS-i will retail at a marginally higher price as compared to its younger 100cc sibling. Being offered at a price tag of Rs.45,500/- (ex-showroom price, Delhi), the Discover 125cc will be available phase-wise manner across the country.
