Struggling to hold on to their market share, seems like Bajaj has struck the right cord with the 150cc Discover models. Launched a couple of months back, the Discover 150F and 150S are off to a good start.
Reports suggest that Bajaj has already managed to sell over 70,000 units of the 150cc Discovers. Another reason for the popularity is that it is the cheapest 150cc motorcycle in the segment. Being commuter centric, it offers good fuel economy backed with punchy performance. The other reason why customers are looking at the bike with a keen eye is the semi-fairing on the 150F model. This adds a lot more style in the rather plain Jane looking commuter segment bikes.
The 150cc Discovers have surpassed the sales of the smallest Pulsar, the Pulsar 135LS.
Powering the Discover 150F & 150S you have a newly developed 144.8cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, DTS-i engine producing 14.5 PS of power @ 8,500 RPM and 12.75 Nm of torque @ 6,500 RPM. Engine is mated to a constant mesh, all-up, 5-speed gearbox.
