Bajaj Auto had showcased Discover 125 ST (Sports Tourer) few months back, and finally they’ve launched the sports commuter in Tamil Nadu.
The Bajaj Discover 125 ST is powered by a 125cc, 4-valve, DTS-i engine which produces 13 BHP of peak power and 10.8 Nm of peak torque. According to Bajaj, the fuel efficiency will be around 65 km/l in normal riding conditions. The target competition will be Honda’s CB Shine, in which the Discover 125ST has a upper hand in the power department, thanks to the 4 valved engine.
The Discover ST is the first bike in the 125cc commuter segment to feature monoshock rear suspension. Other attractions include an all new digital instrument cluster, petal disc brakes on the front and a new alloy wheel design.
Bajaj is following a phased launch strategy, similar to what they’re doing with Pulsar 200 NS launch. Discover 125 ST will be first offered in South India with a price tag of Rs. 55,740/- (ex-showroom, Tamil Nadu). It’s worth noting that the old Discover 125 will continue to be sold at Rs. 51,127/-.
