Discovers in various avatars have swung by ever since Bajaj introduced them way back in 2004. Since then, Bajaj has been at it, tinkering the Discover over time to suit rapidly changing tastes of the commuting class. The new Discover 150 twins are Bajaj’s new jab at the premium commuter segment, and now form the flagship of the Discover lineup- the range now starts with the 100T and these new 150 twins top it off.
The Discover 150 comes in two flavors- a half-faired F and the more skimpily dressed S, which does away with the fairing.
What’s the difference?
The 150 F’s half-fairing shows a modicum of sporty intent, while the partly digital instrumentation and LED tail lamps add some more finesse. The 150 S gets a smaller bikini fairing, but retains the F’s headlamp cluster along with the pilot lamps, yet does away with the LED tail lamps. The S also gets a regular analog instrument cluster. Apart from that, both the bikes share the same cycle parts. Also, all that paraphernalia also makes the F 5 Kgs heavier than the S- that does very mildly reflect on the dynamics a tad, but more on that later.
