Bajaj Discover 100 M Drum Overview
Bajaj Auto Limited is an Indian company, which has always been a pioneer in producing and exporting scooters, auto rickshaws and motorcycles.. It has a lot of famous and legendary names in its stable, such as Chetak and Pulsar, which makes it a formidable competitor. Back in 2004, this very renowned company launched the Discover 125, which managed to change the definition of executive commuting to a great extent. In a very short span of time, the Discover became a primary choice for many commuter bikers, what the Pulsar is to performance bikers. The Discover meets conventional bike user requirements and has improved steadily over the years. The Indian market certainly has evolved in this decade, but some basics remain, with a section of practical 100cc loyalists steadfastly refusing to embrace larger capacity bikes. Owing to this mentality, the Discover clan is still going strong, thanks to its fabulous fuel efficiency, decent looks and comfortable ride. In a league with the innumerable, but successful facelifts it has undergone, the company has launched an all-new variant of Discover – the all new Bajaj Discover 100M at a press conference at their corporate office in Akurdi, Pune on October 15, 2013. This is the sixth variant of the existent family of Discovers and is primarily based on fuel efficiency. So the question arises, does this bike fits the tagline - “Mileage bikes ka naya satya” on its launch, or not? Let’s find out.
Bajaj Discover 100 M Drum Designing
Bajaj Discover 100M still looks very much like its older siblings, the 100T and 125ST versions. The 100T provides comfortable palm grips, and its switches work with positive feel also offering a pass-light flasher, which is an uncommon feature in the bikes of this segment. The edgy black colored rear view mirrors are placed on its nicely positioned handle bar, giving it a typical entry-level commuter feel. It has the same familiar angular headlight with twin pilot lamps, but what’s a bit difference here is that the headlamp is sitting in a smaller bikini fairing and a smaller visor, as compared to its elder siblings. Keeping the similarity feel, this bike too comes with the same-sized, sharper and chiseled macho fuel tank and side panels with dual tone decals, that impart secure inner thigh support. The 100T comes with several parts finished in black. Its side panels lend relief in silver, matching well with the footrest mounting sub-frame sections. The motorcycle seat is lightly stepped and noticeably long. Large side-panels flow smoothly into the swooping tail-fairing section, ending up in a nicely-styled tail lamp and clear lens blinkers. The instrument console is also the same as that of 100T, with a large analogue speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge and various tell-tale lamps, arranged in a very sophisticated manner, ending up as one of the most good-looking instrument consoles amongst the introductory commuter bikes. The side view is somewhat distinguished with 100T, with a different looking exhaust pipe, which is the same as that found in previous generation Discover 100, the cheapest Discover. The bike comes standard with the electric starter and the gorgeous black-finished web spoke alloy wheels. Bajaj Discover 100M has two variants on offer, which include 100M and 100M Disk, the disc brake version. It is available in five shades, which include Flame Red, Brilliant Blue, Midnight Black with Red decals, Midnight Black with Blue decals and Midnight Black with Olive decals.
Colors of Bajaj Discover 100 M Drum Engine & Performance
There is no question for the fact that a Bajaj motorcycle has always been known as the best fuel-efficient motorcycle amongst its competition. The Discover 100M can be started via a kick-lever, or electric start button, which is standard in both of its versions. Bajaj has provided the same 102cc, four-stroke, carburettor equipped bike with an auto-choke to aid easy starts, which is already available in 100T. This engine has corrugated fins for much better cooling purposes. Being technically sounded, Bajaj has fitted in twin spark-plugs (DTS-i) and four-valves, unseen in cheaper 100cc motorcycles. This creamy engine produces a healthy 10.1bhp at 9000rpm, while maximum torque produced is 9.02Nm at 6500rpm. Power surges through a cable driven clutch, and four-up, smooth shifting gearbox. Clutch feel is just right - positive and light. The 100M accelerates with willingness unlike any 100cc, four-stroke commuter bike in India. Credits to its better power to weight ratio and light-weighted character, the throttle response is likewise brisk for a 100, and there’s adequate bottom end grunt. Open the throttle, and power feeds in sharply with rising revs. There is no doubt that the Discover 100M is quicker than any Indian 100cc motorcycle, or actually, at par with most 125’s and even faster than quite a few. The 100M takes 6.76 seconds to pass 60kph from rest, and has a creditable, true top speed of 9.4kph on test with us. What’s the biggest and the most concerned feature of this motorcycle, which is surely going to bring smiles on the Indian customers is its mileage figures. Bajaj claims that this bike is capable of offering 84 kmpl, as certified by ARAI. Nevertheless, with offering an overall 72 kmpl in the real world conditions, the Discover 100M can be easily ranked as one of the most fuel efficient motorcycles of India.
Bajaj Discover 100 M Drum Braking & Handling
The Discovers have always had the trait of offering superior ride quality, and the Discover 100M is no exception here in the business. This bike is held together by a dual-cradle frame, with a conventional rectangular section swingarm. There’s telescopic fork front suspension and a pair of gas-charged rear shock absorbers, which offers a much plush ride than its ancestors. Its upright commuter-ish riding position proves comfortable over long distances, which gives a nice feeling of sitting in your bike, not on it. The handling can be best said as nimble; at 1255 mm, this bike has a shorter wheelbase than its 100cc Bajaj siblings. Thus, cornering takes the least efforts on this motorcycle. Ride quality is plush and good for the class, although Bajaj has used an obsolete ‘ribbed’ tread pattern tyre in front and a similar old-school thin tyre at rear, both sourced from Eurogrip. The Discover 100M corners well at speeds under 50kph, but push beyond this, and both tyres soon run out of traction. This leads to this bike as a motorcycle best ridden for city traffic conditions. Coming to the brakes section, this machine has 130mm diameter drum brakes or an option of a 200mm petal disc brake at front, while 110mm diameter drum brakes do the duty at rear. There is no complaint for the bite of the brakes, and with a stopping power of 25.37m for covering the 60-0 kmph test, the brakes are amongst the best in the 100cc class.
Bajaj Discover 100 M Drum Safety Features
100cc bikes in Indian market are not meant to incorporate sophisticated features like ABS and Traction Control, but Bajaj has managed to enhance the safety of the bike by providing a 200mm petal disc brake as an option.

Bajaj Discover 100 M Drum Updates
The ex-showroom Delhi price for Discover 100M is INR 46,000 and for Discover 100M Disk is INR 49,000. This motorcycle is slotted in between the entry-level Discover 100 and the premium 100cc commuter, the Discover 100T. Overall, Bajaj Discover 100M perfectly fits the gap between the two afore-mentioned motorcycles, being a great competitor with stylish looks, comfortable seating posture and ride, nice performing engine, high fuel efficiency and economical price. The Discovers have already proven a serious threat to the roost ruling Splendors and Passions, by spoiling up their party. And with this new offering, the strength of Discovers is obviously going to be doubled up. With the launching of the bike at the perfect time of festive season, Bajaj aims to clinch high sales figures, and going with the credentials of the Discover 100M, the intentions of achieving the target is not at all difficult for the Akurdi-based manufacturer. Time for Bajaj to burst the crackers joyfully, then.

Bajaj Discover 100M Review
Its the best value for money and most attractive one also. I went to showroom to purchase another bike, but when I rode 100M and saw the specifications, I decided to purchase it. The engine is smooth with no jerks on any road. The rear nitrox shockups are the best one..I can recommend this bike to any one who wants the real value for his money and the best and latest bike in the market. Rest, every one is free to take his decision.....
