Report – Bajaj Discover 150 F and 150 S to be launched on August 11

Posted on: Jul 31, 2014 - 9:29am IST

The new Bajaj Discover 150 F (faired) and Discover 150 S motorcycles are scheduled to be launched on August 11, reports Overdrive.in. The duo have already started reaching dealerships across the country.

The Discover 150 S looks exactly like the Discover 125 ST with subtle changes like a bigger rear tyre and a black theme for the grab rail, rear foot peg mounts and centre panel. The Discover 150 F too derives majority of its styling cues from its smaller sibling but has an entirely new identity, thanks to the newly designed semi-fairing.

The new additions to the Discover family would be positioned right on top of the vast commuter bike segment. While the 100 – 110 cc sub-segment is where core volumes lie, Bajaj is looking to cater to customers who look for more performance from their commuter motorcycle.

The new 150 cc air-cooled single-cylinder DTS-i engine employs 4-valves. Bajaj hasn’t revealed the specifications of the soon-to-be-launched motorcycles yet but expect the power output to be in the vicinity of 15 PS (14.78 bhp). A 5-speed gearbox with heel-and-toe shifter transmits the power.

Competitors: Honda CB Unicorn, Yamaha SZ series

Expected Price: INR 55,000 to 65,000, ex-showroom

    5 Aug I have Purchase the New Bajaj Discover 150S, in Ahmednagar

    The Engine is smooth and very responsive. Braking is good with Disc brake on it. The bike is looking sturdy (solidly built, strong, rugged) and very comfort as well. Overall it’s a Quality Product. On Road Price is 63,000 in Ahmednagar

    The bike is simply rocks. Congratulations to BAJAJ team for building such a nice commuter bike by incorporating the better technological features within the affordable price range.

    This bike will give a tough competition to Honda Unicorn, Hero Glamour, Hero Ignitor, Yamaha SZ

    Instead of experimenting with so many variants of discover, Bajaj should resurrect the old and successful model – Caliber (with this new 150cc engine) as a powerful and macho commuter to counter Honda unicorn and Suzuki GS150R. I am pretty sure many people would love to see Caliber with 150cc.

    My only complaint with this launch is.. Bajaj shouldn’t have discontinued old Discover 150 till they came up with these launches. Now it feels like.. they have discontinued a model and then again re-launching it.
