The new Bajaj Discover 110 is ready to be re-introduced. Spy shots of the motorcycle at dealerships have emerged and the 110 will be the second Discover model to be offered by Bajaj – and the sixth commuter, in the range. The other commuters Bajaj currently has on sale are the CT100B, Platina 100, Discover 125, V12 and V15.
To be slotted between the Platina 100 and Discover 125, the Discover 110 aims to offer the styling of the Discover in a more economical package. For 2018, both Discover iterations get five-spoke (or ten-spoke, depending on how you assess the wheel design) alloys in matte black – replacing the silver five-spoke alloys on the existing 125 – and new graphics, as well.
The Discover 110 is not expected to be a feature-heavy motorcycle – although it does get a digi-analogue instrument cluster, an electric starter, a blacked-out lower half (all cycle parts, essentially), handlebar-end weights and dual shock absorbers with a piggyback reservoir. However, the 110 will not be offered with a disc brake as standard.
The DTS-i motor isn’t exactly an all-new unit but boasts substantial updates to make it efficient, as well as a relatively involving motorcycle to ride. We expect this motor to produce 9.5hp and 9.5Nm of torque and it's likely to be paired to a 4-speed gearbox with an all-down shift pattern.
The Discover 110 will compete with the likes of the Hero MotoCorp Passion Pro/XPro and the TVS Victor 110. It will be priced at Rs 50,500 (ex-showroom, Pune), at which point it will undercut its two primary rivals by Rs 3,000-4,000. That aside, the Discover also has the pricing advantage because it isn’t equipped with a disc brake. The Discover 110 will be launched alongside other updated Bajaj motorcycles in the first half of January 2018 – stay tuned for more updates!
