After the huge success of its 100cc commuter, Discover 100 4G, Bajaj released a fresh offering under the Discover nameplate called Bajaj Discover 100M. Aiming to provide more choices in 100cc commuter space, Bajaj Discover 100M has been launched to put that extra smile to the commuting section of the country.
Bajaj Discover 100M is powered by a 102cc, DTS-i motor, which is mated to a 4-speed transmission system. In addition to that, 4 valves are incorporated in contrary to 2 valves which generates greater power at higher rpm. The signature DTS-i engine from Bajaj develops a maximum power of 9.3Ps at 8000rpm with a peak torque of 9.02Nm at 6000rpm. Bajaj claims a fuel efficiency of 84kmpl with this new Discover model.
With the front fairing being the main visual modification, the Bajaj Discover 100M now has a much improved headlamp section which gives a sportier feel to it. A low maintenance battery is provided with CDI mapping which ensure zero expenditure on battery maintenance. Electric start also comes as a standard to ease the mode of starting. The tyres come with 1.4x17” alloy at the front and 1.6x17” alloy at the rear as standard. A 200mm front petal disc along with 130mm rear drum brakes are provided as an upgrade in the braking system.
The fuel tank capacity is 9.5 litres that assists the adorable mileage in long run. Front telescopic forks and Gas filled Nitrox dual shocks at the rear remain in business for a comfortable ride. With refreshed styling, the new Bajaj Discover 100M also boasts longer seat for a comfortable ride. Bajaj’s decision of powering up a mileage bike paid off quite well marking an impressive number of unit sell in the year 2014.
