Bajaj Discover 100 M

Review

Since inception, Bajaj Discover has succeeded well in the Indian market by being a stylish yet performance packed commuter. Bajaj has now put its efficient player in the 100cc line-up. Cutting down on power, the new Discover 100 was launched to provide a better fuel economy along with that Discover signature style.

The bike is energized by a 94.38cc DTS-i, single-cylinder, four-stroke, air cooled engine which comes mated to a four-speed gearbox. The maximum power of the machine now comes down to 7.7Ps at 7500rpm while creating a maximum torque of 7.85Nm at 5000rpm. Apart from its reliable engine, the bike features a digital CDI with an 8 bit microprocessor chip which helps to provide optimum ignition timing for any given engine rpm.

Unlike, the SNS (spring in spring) suspension employed in the first variant, the new Bajaj Discover 100 comes with gas-filled nitrox dual shock absorbers at the rear. The front suspension remains to telescopic ones. The new avatar of Discover comes with a low maintenance battery, which is a definite pro for the common mass of the nation. The new LED tail lamps at the rear are one of the major modifications made. The instrument cluster also gets a fine finishing and a low battery indicator is now added to the set. The refreshed body graphics and an improved headlamp further adds to the visuals of this bike. Twin pilot lamps remain in existence with a DC headlight to ensure a steady light beam even in lower rpm conditions.

A pass-switch is now added to provide a safer riding experience. An Auto Choke is incorporated for easy starting in the chilly weather conditions. The front and rear brakes are drum type with 130mm and 110mm dimensions respectively with tyre size of 2.75x17” at the front and 3.00x17” at the rear end. The company claims a mileage of 91kmpl making it stand at the doorstep of other fuel saving nerds like TVS Star City and Mahindra Centuro.
