It is powered by an air-cooled 125cc 4-valve twinspark single-cylinder engine that produces 13 bhp and 11 Nm torque. Drive is transmitted to the rear wheel via a 5-speed gearbox, which helps the Discover 125T to cruise at a lower engine speed, thereby reducing the fuel consumed.
It comes equipped with telescopic front forks and a pair of gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear.
