Bajaj re-launches Discover 125 at Rs. 52,002
After reviving the good old CT 100 from the ashes, Bajaj has once again played the card of re-launching a previously discontinued model by introducing the Discover 125 once again in the Indian market. The motorcycle, which was discontinued in 2012 to make way for more premium next generation models of the Discover range like the Discover 125M and Discover 125T, has been brought back in the market with a price tag of Rs. 52,002 (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
The motorcycle retains the basic silhouette and body panels from the previous Discover 125, though there are several changes which differentiate it from the latter. To start with, the headlamp is now a DC unit to avoid the fluctuations in its illumination. The body panels now get a new set of body decals. The five spoke alloy wheels and the engine are now finished in grey, unlike the black finish on both these components. The bike now comes with a 30 per cent wider rear tyre (100/90x17) and offers electric starter and front 200mm disc brake as a part of the standard equipment.
Powering the Discover 125 is a single cylinder, air cooled, 2-valve, 124.6cc DTS-i engine, which churns out a maximum power of 11 PS and peak torque output of 10.8 Nm. The engine is mated to a five speed gearbox. Bajaj claims a top speed of 100 kmph for the motorcycle, though the fuel efficiency figure is still undisclosed by the company. The bike is available in two paint schemes – ebony black with red graphics and ebony black with blue graphics.
The motorcycle has been listed on the official website of Bajaj Auto, and is being dispatched to all the dealers of Bajaj Auto across the nation. Like before, the Discover 125 will provide stiff competition to the Hero Super Splendor, TVS Phoenix and Yamaha Saluto.
