Bike and Car Mileage Reviews

Bajaj Discover 125ST

This has been the year of low range motorcycles. Bajaj Auto launched the new Bajaj Discover 125ST motorcycle in May of this year – around the same time other bikes in the category like Hero Ignitor and Honda Dream Yuga were launched. Despite launching before these other bikes, the Discover 125ST still offers the highest power in the category; apparently without compromising on the fuel consumption metrics. Is that true?

Our mileage review based on test drives by various customers and publications will show.

Official Bajaj Discover 125ST Mileage The Bajaj Discover 125ST comes in the same price range as the Hero Ignitor. The bike comes at an ex-showroom price of around Rs.52,000 and offers a mileage of between 65-70 kilometers per liter in ideal test conditions. Put another way, this is the maximum you can ever hope to achieve and the actual fuel consumption is going to be much lower than this – mainly while travelling in the cities.

What Customers Say About Bajaj Discover’s Fuel Consumption

Most of the Discover range of bikes from Bajaj are known for their great mileage. MouthShut, the website that covers reviews from actual customers has an overall fuel consumption efficiency rating of 4 stars on 5.  In fact, almost every other reviewer has raved about the bike consistent at least in terms of mileage. Except for one user who has noted a mileage of 48+, almost every other user has noted a mileage of above 50.

At least two of the reviewers have observed a city mileage of above 60 kmpl. Overall, the users who have reviewed the bike seem to have extracted 55 kmpl in the city and 60 kmpl on the highways.

The Bajaj Discover 125ST bike has also been reviewed by most of the reputed auto magazines and blogs in the country. According to Motorbeam, the fuel consumption in the city is around 55kmpl while driving over the highways can get it as high as 60 km/l. ZigWheels though had an extremely amazing outing noticing a pretty impressive 62kmpl on city roads and an even more impressive 77kmpl on the highways.

That’s even  more impressive than Bajaj’s official claim.

BikeDekho, one of the popular destinations for online bike trading, the highways can get you as much as 65kmpl while the city roads can bring the fuel efficiency down to 50kmpl. Most other portals have stuck to the company line claiming a mileage of 56kmpl on city roads and 67 kmpl on the highways – so nothing much to takeaway there.
