Guys, Discover 100 is going to be released on July 12, today!

Source: http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/Bajaj-to-launch-new-100-cc-bike-on-12th-July/videoshow/4737676.cms

I personally feel its a great move by Bajaj to name the bike as Discover, since Discover has a good brand value already.

Although, existing owners might feel dissatisfied.

Also, The Ninja is ready and expected with a 2 Lac Ex-Showroom Price, in the next 3 months finally!

Sorry to inform that the launch has been postponed... It will happen sometime before 27 July for sure. It is expected that the bike will have DTS-Si 2.0, and possibly high gearing for the so-called "long distance bikers".

Also, it is expected to return 80 kmpl in general riding conditions, which is almost 11 kmpl more than Platina 125 gives generally.

Guys, read Mr. Rahul Bajaj's interview here :-->

@ 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?

-------
NEWS: 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.

Check out the article. There's more to read. Also, Check out the Discover 100:-->













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!

See, it is not meant for most of us... I have seen people travelling 80-100 kms on 100cc bikes at one stretch.

So, its better than any Hero Honda, etc. in this matter. Choices are always good.

This bike gives an extended 5th gear mainly for better mileage claim. I'm noticing that all recent bajaj bikes are getting overgeared compared to earlier. It seems they have found the secret to good mileage and speed together.

As for us, it is still ZMA or that R15 ...

most people who make long intra city trips are not used to long gears - they'll just end up screwing up the gearbox....

just my opinion
