Bajaj has launched the all new Discover 125 and has christened it the Discover 125 ST to distinguish it from the previous version. The ST here stands for Sports Tourer and it's Bajaj's take on a sporty commuter bike. Commenting on the launch K Srinivas, President - Motorcycle Business, Bajaj said 'The Sports Tourer is an everyday fun ride to work. We believe that the sporty evolution of the commuter category will occur fast, and it is our intention to dominate this segment by introducing such breakthrough products.'

The motorcycle is powered by Bajaj's Twin Spark Technology. The 4 valve, 125 cc air cooled engine delivers 12.8 bhp of power @9000 rpm and 1.1 kgm of torque @7000 rpm to the rear wheel via a 5-speed gearbox. The good news is the addition of a monoshock nitrox suspension at the rear which should make rides more comfortable. Stopping is achieved by means of a petal disc brake at the front and drum brakes at the rear.

 

 

The bike gets an all-new front end which looks sportier than the previous model. They've replaced the rounded headlight cluster from the previous gen Discover and gone in for a more chiselled looking front end. The fuel tank is now more muscular and blends nicely with the new headlamp cluster. A dash of aluminium on the sides helps spruce things up a bit as well.

Overall, the new Discover is a good step up from the previous model and we expect it to be priced at around Rs 50,000 to 55,000 ex-showroom.
