Thanks to an announcement by Rajiv Bajaj, it is pretty much a well known fact by now that Indian bike maker Bajaj intends to come up with as many as 6 new models in the Discover range of bikes during this fiscal.
Hardly a couple of months after this revelation, our good friends at BikeAdvice have spotted a Discover test mule doing rounds near Pune. At first glance, this bike looks just like any other Discover 100T variant, which was launched earlier this year. However, a closer inspection reveals that the test bike sports commuter-class rear foot pegs, which are decidedly less appealing than the sporty looking units on the Discover 100T that we all know of. Also, the test mule appears to have black painted tubed metal side sets instead of the aluminum units on the 100T. Also, the test mule seems to sport a different (and less interesting) side cowl. All this means that Bajaj might be busy readying a cheaper, entry level Discover 100T variant to slot in between the last gen Discover 100 and the new Discover 100T.
A look at the price sheets is enough to point out that there exists quite a gap between the prices of Discover 100T and the Disco 100 (Price of Discover 100T is INR 49,000 whereas the price of Discover 100 is INR 43,820, both prices ex-showroom New Delhi.) All this means that if the bike in the pics is actually an upcoming entry level model of the Discover 100T, it could be positioned somewhere around the INR 46000 mark.
