@ rockets we ride:
If you ride long distance, in the max torque spot or a bit above, I think it would be a great concept... Only that, you should not change speeds.
After all, you do have choice of not shifting to 5th, within the city... right?
: Country’s leading two-wheeler maker, Bajaj Auto launches the 100CC version of its popular model, Discover in the Indian market. Discover 100cc comes with DTS-Si version 2.0
(first version launched with XCD 125cc). The DTS-Si gets an oval pent roof combustion chamber
and Molykote Piston
. Discover 100cc comes with a 5-speed tranmission
which is a segment first.
Under ARAI – IDC the discover returns an incredible mileage of 89kmpl and Bajaj claims the mileage would be around 80kmpl
in actual driving conditions. The discover 100cc comes with electric start
,alloy wheels and auto choke
as standard option. The discover 100cc also comes with segment first LED tail lamps,twin pilot lamps and maintenace free battery.
The new Discover 100CC bike is available in 5 colors, Black green , Black red, Black blue, Red and Blue. Discover 100cc is priced at Rs. 40,000 (ex- showroom Chennai)
What will emerge on July 17, is an all new 100cc engine with more power and torque
, even better engine response than any other 100cc engine in the country and surely a bike which should break the ton, not in speed, but in fuel efficiency. In fact, while the ARAI figures for ideal fuel efficiency under standard test conditions could exceed the three-figure mark, the bike has already set an 89 kmpl figure in the Indian Driving Cycle tests.
The same ARAI gave a figure of "56 kmpl" for Pulsar 220, and Media Personnel did achieve 50 kmpl real in mixed riding. So, 80 kmpl seems achievable for this bike.
Again, Its' not for the performance minded. It's only a 100cc after all.

Everything looks cool. I only hope that the Ride Quality and Reliability should be similar to the new P220.
Otherwise, if quality is compromised, they are done for!
