Not only the Bajaj Discover is one of the best commuter-centric motorcycles, but it’s also a ubiquitous motorcycle in sights. Interestingly, consumers in this segment demand a product with certain familiarity and minimal changes in the design. So, is it the same Discover we saw years ago?
Indeed. And that alone makes it a hit in the Indian market. It still flaunts that chunky headlamp that now comes fitted with LED DRLs, the alloy wheels are minimalistic in design, and the overall stance is more or less unchanged. What’s changed though is the line-up.
Gone are the multitude of options that left the consumers in absolute confusion, for the Discover is now available with a 110cc and a 125cc powertrain. So, here’s a quick overview of what the Discover 110 brings to the table. Read on.
At the heart of the Bajaj Discover 110 is an all-new 115.5cc single-cylinder engine that churns out 8.6bhp and 9.81Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a four-speed manual transmission. As its on-paper figures suggest, this motor delivers the best power in the segment, while the torque is class-leading. Therefore, there is urgency in the way the Discover 110 pulls off the line. Refinement levels are also quite sufficing, for there are vibes that can be only felt past 6,000rpm.
Accompanying that commuter stance is 2,035mm of overall length, 760mm of overall width and 1,087mm of overall height. Furthermore, it has a ground clearance of 165mm, seat height of 805mm, and a wheelbase of 1,305mm. The Bajaj Discover 110 is also a lightweight motorcycle with just 117kg of dry weight.
Fuel tank capacity
Since it is a commuter-centric motorcycle, the ARAI-claimed fuel efficiency figure of 82.4km/l is simply stellar. The fuel tank capacity is rated at 8 litres.
The Bajaj Discover 110 sits on a semi-double-cradle frame chassis. The braking duties are taken care of by a 130mm drum at the front and a 110mm drum at the rear. As for the suspension, the bike rides on telescopic forks upfront and nitrox gas-charged twin-shocks at the back. The front tyre is 2.75×17 in size and the rear tyre is 3.00×17 in size. The suspension setup is pliant and it makes sure the high-speed stability is not compromised. The steering is well-weighted allowing the rider to have some fun around the corners.
As for the safety net, the Discover 110 gets Combined braking system (CBS) as standard, although a front disc brake – even as an option – would have been a nice addition. The instrument cluster is a part-digital unit with an analogue tachometer that sits right next to a small digital display for the essential information. Apart from the LED DRLs, the halogen headlamp remains unchanged. On the other hand, the taillamp is also unchanged and comes fitted with a conventional bulb.
You can grab the Discover 110 in four different colours: Blue, Black with Grey Decals, Black, and Red. Personally, the Black Discover looks the best with its subdued graphics and stealthy looks.
