Mileage, Price & Colours
Discover 100 delivers a SIAM-rated mileage of 91.1 kmpl.The 100cc Bajaj Discover 100 is priced at Rs 44,001 (ex-showroom, Delhi), and is available in black/blue, black/green, black/magenta, and red.
Design and Ergonomics
The bike is targeted at the mass market, and is therefore styled conservatively, with clean lines and minimal graphics that would appeal to varied tastes. Being a commuter bike, the Discover 100 offers an upright riding position with wide handlebars and middle-set foot pegs, which minimises stress applied on the rider’s lower back and wrists.
Engine & Transmission
The bike is powered by an air-cooled 94cc single-cylinder engine that produces 10 bhp and 9.2 Nm torque. Drive is transmitted to the rear wheel via a 5-speed gearbox, which helps the bike to cruise at a lower engine speed, thereby reducing the fuel consumed.
It is equipped with telescopic front forks and a pair of gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. Although they use hydraulic fluid, gas-charged shock absorbers are better than pure-hydraulic units, as they improve the damping characteristics by reducing the build-up of air-bubbles in the fluid, helping to retain its optimum viscosity.
The bike employs a 130mm drum brake at the front, and a 110mm drum brake at the rear. A front disc brake option is not available on the 100.
It comes fitted with standard features such as alloy wheels, auto-choke, LED tail-lamps, battery charge indicator, pass light switch, and a low-maintenance battery.
Who should buy one?
People who want a feature-loaded and fuel-efficient 100cc commuter bike for short commutes (under 30kms), should consider the Discover 100.
