We take the latest offering from Bajaj Auto, the new Discover 100T for a spin to find out what sets it apart from the other commuters in the country

The neatly carved bikini fairing upfront houses twin parking lights and a large headlight which runs on DC for uninterrupted throw of light even at lower speeds. Incorporation of clear lens indicators is in line with the classy and trendy look of the motorcycle while the tinted windscreen above the headlight looks uber cool in its curvy aggressive form and does a brilliant job of keeping the wind blast at bay. The fuel tank design, akin to the 125ST, looks chunky and sizable to go with the motorcycle’s overall poise hiding the real size of the motorcycle but handing it a solid big bike feel.

 

The knee recesses on the fuel tank are accurately designed to accommodate tall and short riders alike while the slight dip in the rider’s seat teamed up with the raised handlebars (which get bar-end weights for vibe-free riding) and feet forward positioning of the foot pegs, makes for a commuter-friendly ergonomic geometry. The fully analogue console upfront is basic but sophisticated in its design and houses a speedometer, fuel gauge and the tell-tale lights.

The centre panels are finished in silver to give the bike a two-tone paint scheme gelling neatly with the subtle and sophisticated graphics while the tail panels stretch till the end holding the contemporary tail light in place. Fashionable and fancy, the grab rail finished in silver paint compliments the styling but is a bit of a stretch to reach, especially when placing the bike on the main stand.

 

Visually, the bike looks more like it belongs to a segment higher than a mere 100cc commuter. With its sizably large proportions, an aggressive bikini fairing and gorgeously crafted 17-inch ten-spoke alloy wheels. A big and much-needed change that was long overdue in this space.
