Bajaj Discover 135: Some details

Bajaj Discover 135That's the current image at the Bajaj Discover site home page. I am told that Bajaj has already shoved the Discover 135 into showrooms, but this has been a low key affair, on the lines of what is called a soft launch. I am still waiting for more details but here's what I've dug up so far.

The motorcycle has had its valves redone, bore and stroke changed and now displaces 135cc. That brings the power up to 13 PS (Bajaj directly converts PS to bhp, so that's 13 bhp). Since the bike is only marginally (if at all; this is unconfirmed) heavier than the 125, it should prove very peppy. The bike is also making a lot more torque so it should prove to be a fun ride. From the pic, I think there is no disc on the front wheel, but I know for sure that there is a tacho.

The marketing perspective is to create a 125 that's more than a 125, so to speak. The Disco 135 will be priced close to the 125s but at a slight premium. The Disco 135 is also supposed to return phenomenal economy (which means at least at par with the 125s). More as soon as I get some...

Thats the Discover 125 DTSI pic with black treatment from the Bajaj Website ..

The Discover 135 probably sports a disc brake at the front.

See the pic of the Discover 135 at my blog: Indian2Wheels.Blogspot.Com

I just saw one in a moto show in Mexico and it's got a disc brake on the front and the nitro suspension on the rear wheel. It looks like a really nice option if you can't afford a Pulsar or for some other reason you want a smaller engine.

I am owning it for 8 months now,riding qualities are high and u can beat anyone but pulsar /apache 160.

But millage is a bit problem,though i have done all necessary maintanence but it gives only 50kmpl.{without disc brake,avg speed 53 kmph in city roads

its a nice bike. in my view the same madel should be redefined with new features like that of pulsars i.e with 5 speed,max power, milage,looks,2piece handels,wide tyres etc.so it would attrack the customers specially youthsat affordable price
