At first glance, the Discover 100 M looks no different from the Discover 100 T. It shares the same DNA of the Discover family. But there are certain utilitarian changes made to the 100M that makes it more affordable and practical. You will probably not even notice them at the first glance, but the aluminium foot pegs are gone and they have been replaced by standard rubber on metal pegs, the grab rail is basic and it is evident that the paintjob is done with cost restraints in place. The side panels get body colour treatment on the 100M and Bajaj has decided not to include the bar-end weights that are standard on the 100 T. The 100 M gets a regular seat which offers more utility as against the sportier one of the 100T. But the changes do not make the product any inferior to its competitors, as Bajaj has managed to put together a very nice package.
The muscular tank is the best feature of the motorcycle. The bikini fairing along with the twin pilot headlamps, spider-web alloys, aluminum cast side steps and a decent decal job makes it a very trendy 100cc commuter. The 100 M gets full chain cover case, aluminium rear foot pegs and a simple grab rail. The non-Led tail lamp and the turn indicators look very nice and the electric start comes as a standard fitment. The instrument console looks very basic that has an analog speedometer, fuel indicator and the quality of the switch gear is nothing to talk about.
The overall looks of the motorcycle are quite appealing, especially when pitted against the bikes in this segment. We only wish Bajaj had made a little more effort to distinguish it from rest of the Discover line-up.
