Bajaj Auto, which had earlier announced that it would be launching six new products under the Discover brand name kept its word as it unveiled the Discover 100M. Visually the bike looks similar to the Discover 100T but according to Bajaj it has been based on a completely new platform featuring a shorter wheelbase of 1255mm. Powering the 100M is a 102cc, four-stroke, 4-valve, DTS-i engine pumping out 9.3PS @ 8,000rpm and 9.02Nm@ 6,000rpm and mated to a 4-speed transmission unlike its elder siblings 5-speed one. Though the engine is similar to the 100T, the boffins have reduced the torque by 0.5Nm while peak torque is achieved at 500rpm lesser than its elder sibling. This according to the company has been done to make the bike more rideable in heavy traffic conditions while commuting.Bajaj claims a top speed of 95km/h and overall fuel efficiency of 85kmpl.
