Bajaj Launches Discover 150

As we informed earlier, Bajaj has launched a new version of its flagship brand, 150cc Discover at a shattering price tag. The new launch sports a 150cc DTSi engine. We enlist the various features of the new offering from Bajaj:
  • 144.8cc DTSi engine
  • Power output of 13PS @ 7500 rpm
  • Max Torque of 12.75Nm @ 5500 rpm
  • Claimed mileage of 65kmpl
  • 5 speed gearbox
  • 240mm front disc brake
  • Self start standard
  • 100/90 section rear tyre
  • Alloy wheels
  • Only 121 kilograms
  • Nitrox Suspension
  • BS III Compliant
All this and much more at an unbelievable price tag of 46,000 ex showroom New Delhi. 

Mileage (fuel efficiency)

Bajaj claims a mileage figure of 65 kmpl for the Discover DTSi 150, which is more than enough for a two-wheeler in this class.
Mr. S. Sridhar, CEO (2 wheelers), Bajaj Auto said that the Discover 100 was already one of the largest selling models in the Indian motorcycle market with current volumes averaging 75,000 per month.
The Bajaj Discover 150 is priced at Rs.46.000/- (ex-showroom price, Delhi) and will be launched in a phase-wise manner across the country. The bike is BS III emission norms ready.
Discover is one of the largest selling brands along with Pulsar from Bajaj in the Indian motorcycle market and has sold more than 650,000 units of the Discover 100 since its launch. The New Discover will rival its own sibling the segment leader Pulsar, Hero Honda CBZ, Honda Unicorn (which also would be upgraded to a newer variant shortly), Suzuki Zeaus and the TVS Apache 160 and the Yamaha FZ series. It would be interesting to see if the new Discover cannibalises the sales of its sibling the Pulsar 150.
