Popular Indian bike maker Bajaj Auto Ltd has today launched a new variant of Discover in Indian bike market. While the silent launch surely comes across as sudden to us, we aren’t really surprised to see yet another motorcycle in the Discover line up of bikes.
It may be noted that Bajaj has always been pretty vocal about its plans of launching as many as four new variants in the Discover range of bikes this year.
The latest variant, which has been christened as the Discover 125T, can be seen as a Discover 125ST minus few frills.
Powering the new Bajaj Discover 125T is the same 125cc, 4-valve, twin-spark engine that powers the 125ST. This engine has a max power output of 12.5PS@9000RPM and a peak torque curve of 10.8Nm@ 6500 RPM.
The biggest difference between the 125T and the 125ST can be found in the rear suspension setups. While the 125ST employs a mono-shock suspension at the rear, the 125T makes to do with a more conventional gas filled twin shock absorbers.
The new Bajaj Discover 125T will be sold in both disc brake and drum brake variants, with a starting price of INR 52,500/- (ex showroom, Delhi). The Bajaj Discover 125T will be seen bridging the gap between the Discover 100T and the Discover 125ST and is a part of bike maker’s plans to spoil the exec-commuter bike buyer silly with choices and confusing him enough to make him stick to Bajaj line up of bikes. A la Maruti Suzuki? Definitely.
