Bajaj has introduced its new Discover 100M, 'M' for mileage, the drum brake variant of which is priced at Rs 46,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi), while the disc brake equipped 100M will retail at Rs 49,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
 
At a glance, the 100M is unmistakably a Discover, retaining much of its family DNA. A familiar and angular headlight with twin pilot lamps sits within the 100M bikini fairing, behind which is located a familiar, nicely laid out and easy on the eye instruments bay. The rider controls include crisp working Bajaj typical switches, adequate palm grips and functional mirrors. There's a muscular fuel-tank with hinged filler lid that leads back to a sharp, neatly designed tail. An electric-starter is offered as standard with the 100M, as are web-spoked alloy wheels that are black finished, along with the motorcycle engine and exhaust.
