Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director, Bajaj Auto has revealed in an interview with Executive Editor, Bloomberg UTV, Mini Menon that his company is burning the midnight oil to shortly introduce a new Discover. The latest Bajaj is confirmed to be a 100cc model, and aims to make it big in this high volumes segment of the market.
The Discover 100 is being built upon the recently launched, well received Bajaj Discover 125ST platform. Expect the 100 to sport similar styling to the handsome 125ST as pictured here, while both bikes shall share several key components. We know the new 100 will be generously equipped, using similar features as found on the 125ST, suitably tweaked for a 100cc commuter bike. The four-stroke, air-cooled and single-cylinder, 100cc engine will be tuned to deliver excellent performance and fuel-efficiency for this segment.
We’d expect to see upmarket kit like alloy wheels and a front disc brake available with the upcoming Discover 100, with Bajaj being clear in their strategy to ensure the Discover 100 does not become just another 100cc commuter bike, but a 100 that actually offers the best technology and specifications for its class.
The Discover 100 will slip into showrooms around this December priced around the Rs 50,000 mark, offering a whole lot more than its rivals for not so much more money.
