Popular Indian bike manufacturer Bajaj Auto Ltd. (BAL) has launched the new Discover 100T commuter bike in Nepal. The Bajaj Discover 100T borrows a lot from the bigger 125ST variant and is being touted as the most advanced 100cc bike in India.
Powering the new Discover 100T is a 107cc, 4 valved, air cooled (what else?) engine that has a class leading maximum power output of 10.2 PS and peak torque figure of 9.2 Nm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and BAL claims that the motor delivers a fuel economy of 87 kmpl.
The bike is similar to the bigger Discover 125 ST in looks and the biggest differences are twin gas charged rear shock absorbers instead of the monoshock that does duty on the 125ST.
The bike comes with features like a digital instrument console and electric starter. The Bajaj Discover 100T goes on sale in Nepal with a sticker price of 1.56 lakh Nepali Rupees (approx INR 97,300). The ‘not-so-pocket-friendly” price tag is thanks to the high import duties imposed by the Nepal government.
