Spied – Bajaj Discover 150 S delivered to customer ahead of launch
As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
In an interesting development, a forum member of TheAutomotiveIndia.com claims that he is the first customer to ride home the new Bajaj Discover 150 S which is yet to officially launch!
The forum member has images of the motorcycle to back his claim. However, he hasn’t revealed the pricing or specifications of the 150 cc commuter motorcycle. The Discover 150 S along with the Discover 150 F (faired) would be launched on August 11.
The motorcycles are powered by a 150 cc air-cooled DTS-i 4-valve engine whose specifications are not made public yet. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox with an all-up pattern, and is expected to develop close to 15 PS. Further details will be revealed at the launch.
The Discover 150 F which would be positioned higher than the 150 S gets a newly designed semi-fairing. The rest of the bike stays true to the regular Discover which in turn derives its looks from the Discover 125 ST. Both motorcycles are equipped with rear monoshock.
The base Discover 150 S employs drum brakes while the top-end variant comes with a front disc brake. It remains to be seen if the 150 F also has two variants.
