The Discover 125ST makes 12.8bhp and comes with a five-speed gearbox.
Bajaj’s updated Discover looks a whole lot more chiselled and definitely more modern. The additions to the bike include a new big headlamp, 10-spoke rims, a ridged 10-litre fuel tank and stepped tail lights that come together to make the bike look very attractive.
The engine is a modified version of the 125cc twin-spark motor from the earlier Discover. It has been thoroughly revised and now features a four-valve head for better breathing, and corrugated fins for improved cooling. Power is now up to 13hp and torque figures remain the same but is now developed 1000rpm higher.
The new Discover proved to be a capable commuter out on the road – it’s updated engine offers a good spread of torque for good rideability. The smooth engine and slick 5-speed gearbox work well in tandem, making your commute in the city feel like a Breeze. The handling is light yet confident. The petal-disc brake in the front has good bite, in case you need to stop abruptly. A mono-shock at the rear is a first for this class and is a useful feature, especially on our potholed roads. Bajaj claims the Discover 125 ST delivers 65kpl, which is great.
The Discover 125 ST comes with a fair amount of equipment and enough performance to take on the competition. It’s also quite fuel efficient and is available at a very competitive price.
