The Discover is the premium commuter brand by Bajaj Auto. It was launched in 2004 as a 125cc motorcycle. 2005 saw the launch of the Discover 110, with a 112cc engine. A 135cc Discover was launched in 2007. A new 100cc Discover was launched in 2009 with a DTS-Si engine, whose added ‘S’ meant ‘swirl induction’. In quick order, the 150cc then replaced the 135cc variant, the 125cc Discover made a comeback in 2011, and the 125ST with the monoshock rear suspension was put on sale in 2012. 2013 saw yet another batch of Discovers, the 100T, 100M and 125T, which had 4-valve engine heads.
At the start of 2018, Bajaj decided to whittle down the Discover range to just one variant of the 110 (a front drum brake) and two variants of the 125 (either a front drum brake or a front disc brake). This echoes the strategy of 2005, when the Discover 110 was the only available model. It remains the same – a stylish premium commuter for those who still demand maximum bang for their buck.
