Discover 125 – the New Bike from Bajaj First Impressions
With the tremendous success of its Discover series of bikes and its well accepted DTSi technology (digital twin spark ignition), Bajaj has recently launched a latest version of its Discover 125 cc with DTSi.
We took the Discover 125cc DTSi for a spin. Read on for our experiences with the new Bajaj Discover bike.
Appearance and Features of the Discover 125
The styling of the new Discover is on par with the styling of other bikes of the series such as 135,150, and 100 cc versions. The bike has a simple design with all necessary accessories like Headlight doom, wide handle bar, black alloy wheels etc.
When observing the Discover 125, it can be seen that with the intention of inducing some specialty at a low cost, Bajaj has used a lot of black colour in the bike, such as in the wheels, engine, frame, front and rear fenders. Graphic strips have been introduced across the fuel tank which run till the tail lamp assembly.
The Handle bar of the Discover is made a bit wider and gives a good grip. The instrument cluster is just a normal cluster with no special features. It carries odometer, speedometer and separate Fuel gauge meter.
The Discover 125cc carries a switch to start for ignition. Besides, one more feature has been introduced, viz. the ride control ON/OFF switch.
The advantage of the ride control feature is that when in ON condition, the bike will be ridden at a max of 40KMPH, no matter how much we pull the acceleration. This saves a fuel which could have been wasted by unnecessary acceleration in traffic conditions, so that there is no chance to waste fuel since the speed has been controlled. It’s somewhat like the Cruise control technology in cars which has been simplified to meet the requirements of a bike.
However, on highways the same can be switched off and can be accelerated with will and wish.
Details of the Discover 125
The Discover 125 as the name itself suggests, comes with a single cylinder air-cooled 124.6cc engine with a Twin spark engine delivering power output of 11PS @8000 RPM and Torque output of 10.8NM@5500RPM. The gear box is of a conventional 5 speed version with all down option to increase speed and up for decreasing.
