Bajaj Discover is a successful series of bikes from the house of Bajaj Auto Limited, who is the second largest producer of motorcycles in India. Bajaj launched the Discover in the year 2004 when the Indian motorcycle market was badly awaiting for a new façade in the commuter segment. The Discover was that new face and it instantly made its way to become a national bestseller.
The Bajaj Discover 100 was launched in 2009 and it soon went on to become one of the top selling bikes in the segment and in the country. Bajaj Discover 100 was the first of the Bajaj bikes to feature the improved version 2.0 of the DTS-Si engine. The Discover 100 is also one of the few bikes to have a five-speed gearbox in its segment. Even after so many years since its debut, Discover 100 cc bikes are still running quite popular here.
Bajaj Discover 100 has striking resemblance to its 125 cc bikes in appearance. The alloy wheels, elevated exhaust and colour graphics all lend a stylish look to the bike. The rider as well as the pillion seat is pretty much comfortable with an upright riding position and raised handle bar.

The stopping power is managed effectively by 130 mm and 110 mm drum brakes on the front and rear respectively. The light handling is sure to delight riders of all age groups.
