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

But it is what lies beneath the gloss and glaze of the Discover 100T that will set it apart from the current crop of minimalistic commuters that have been hounding our roads for decades now. The heart of the matter – indigenously developed next generation engines from Bajaj Auto which hold the power to pave the path towards the Indian maker churning out world class level of motorcycles in the years to come.


And as seen on the Pulsar 200NS and then followed up on to the Discover 125ST, the smallest of the Discover now gets the new advanced  4-valve air-cooled DTSi single cylinder engine with corrugated fins (for better cooling) but with reduced engine capacity to 102cc.

Traditionally associated with performance-oriented higher revving engines, the 4-valve head is known for its peaky nature and lack of grunt in lower revs. But running a long stroke arrangement with a bore into stroke configuration of 47mm x 58.8mm has allowed Bajaj Auto to counter this trait since long stroke engines make more torque which in case of the Discover 100T has been put to use at lower engine speeds, thus giving it the ability to pull right from 20km/h in fifth gear devoid of any knocking or hiccups and not compromising its in-town drivability - a key factor in decision making for the commuter class of motorcycles. Of course the ingenious twin sparkplug DTSi tech from Bajaj Auto whips up support to the cause of torque and seamless power furthermore while keeping the critical emissions in check.
