Bajaj Discover 150

1. The 144.8cc, 12.8 bhp, four-stroke motor is exceptionally frugal. Not the most exciting of the bunch in the performance aspect though.

2. The ride quality of the Discover 150 is more than just adequate, soaking up the bumps and potholes with stuning alacrity.

3. The build quality of the Discover gives away the fact that this motorcycle is built to a price.

4. Styling comes off as quite dated

5. The Discover 150 could be a much better handler than it is, had it been shod with grippier tyres.

6. Price, ex-showroom, Mumbai - Rs 50,456


Yamaha SZR

1. Although this motor displaces 153cc, it produces only 11.9 horses - the result of a retune of the FZ engine for better fuel consumption for the commuter segment.

2. Ride quality is at par with the Discover but the Bajaj feels lighter and more nimble than the Yamaha.

3. Build quality has never been an issue with Yamahas and this one is no exception, although certain bits could have been better.

4. Although the styling is not exactly conservative, the SZR is pleasing to the eye. But it's about time the trend of those hideous plastic tank extentions comes to an end. And now!

5. The tyres of the SZ R are adequate and do the job. Push them hard and they'll give up, though.

6. Price, ex-showroom, Mumbai - Rs 58,663

Hi, I own a Bajaj Discover 150, which I Bought 2 Weeks back. Man, it is a mean machine! It has smooth riding quality at low speeds even in 5th Gears! Also, mileage is good at 55 - 58 (approx.,) Discover is the bike! With bigger rear tyres it is more attractive. I am bored with all similar kind of shapes of bikes, like SZ, SZ-S, Shine, etc., All are dumb bikes.... Discover is the best!

I own the Yamaha SZR. It's really good in looks and performance. Travelling with SZR is easier in traffic as well as highway. Discover is truely an old school bike. That's very much far behind SZR.

I own a Yamaha SZ-R, Its awesome!!!, Many of them are speaking about mileage,what is the use of mileage when u r bike dosen't give a feel like its something wonderful? SZ-R gives good mileage and gives great looks when compared to the oldest Discover style and performance.

This the on-road price for bikes in Bangalore with Self-Start and Disk Brake. Honda Twister 110cc costs 55k Suzuki Slingshot 125cc costs 56k Honda Shine 125cc costs 63k Honda Stunner 125cc costs 66k (analog meter, no kicker) Yamaha SZ-R 150cc costs 67k (analog meter, but no kicker) Suzuki Gs150r 150cc costs 72k (digital meter, with engine balancer, with 6th gear for highway) Honda unicorn 150cc costs 73k (analog meter) Bajaj Pulsar 150cc costs 73k (digital meter) TVS Apache 160cc costs 73k (digital meter) Honda dazzler 150cc costs 77k (digital meter, with rear disc, but no kicker) HeroHonda Hunk 150cc costs 77k (digital meter, with rear disk, but no kicker) Yamaha Fz16 150cc costs 78k (fully digital meter, but no kicker) Clearly, Suzuki and Yamaha offer better value and features for money. Honda is overpriced.

  Honda is not overpriced. What Stunner and Unicorn offer for that price no bike offers. In fact Stunner features such goodies tht it can be compared only to Yamaha Fazer and not with SZR. Honda bikes are recognized for true quality, value for money, low in maintenance, good service network. Yamaha is ok in quality but no match with Honda, high in maintenance and worse in mileage to any company. Thats why people but Honda. Just compare sales of Honda with sales of Yamaha and esp Suzuki then you will know who is the winner. Honda has best refinement. Yami is good, suz is ok but no match for Honda. Quality means Honda. ;-) Bajaj is also good in performance though not on some quality issues.
