We were given a chance to take the new Bajaj Discover 100M out for quick spin soon after its launch event earlier this week. While this short test ride wasn’t enough for us to subject the bike to the scrupulous testing regime our road tests are famous for, we did manage to have a fair understanding of the latest model in the Discover line up of commuter bikes.

As we have been saying, the new Discover 100M sits between the Discover 100 4G and the Discover 100T and has been pitted against the Hero Splendor Pro, Hero Passion Pro, Honda Dream Neo and the likes. Bajaj is using the “Mileage ka Naya Satya” tagline to promote its new low-cost warrior and the bike’s claim to fame is its class leading power output, premium features and a stupendous fuel economy figure.

So, has Bajaj got it really right with its latest entry level motorcycle? Is it sufficiently potent to outclass formidable rivals such as the Hero Splendor? Read on to know about all that we managed to figure out from the short ride of the new Bajaj Discover 100M.

Looks and Ergonomics

Visually, the new Discover 100M is very similar to both the pricier Discover 100T and the Discover 125ST. This isn’t at all a bad thing, especially if you consider that the 125ST is from a segment higher. The Discover 125ST connection means that the new 100M comes with a muscular fuel tank, a petal disc, some snazzy body decals, a cool set of alloy wheels and a bikini fairing which is highly reminiscent of that of the much pricier Pulsar 150/180. However, unlike the larger 125ST, the 100M misses out on a monoshock, a rear tyre hugger, an exposed chain and fuel switch on the side panel. The bike also comes with a slightly different end can.

Ergonomically, the 100M is as sorted out as Discover motorcycles come. The bike comes with a supportive and well cushioned seat, which ensures that the rider has no reason to complain even when negotiating the larger speed humps out there. The rider, in true commuter fashion, sits very upright and can comfortably reach out to the handlebar.

The 100M comes with rubberized handlebar grips but misses out on bar-end weights. However, the latter aren’t really required as the handlebar is totally devoid of any vibrations.

Worth mentioning is that the Discover 100M comes with a hinged fuel filler cap, which means that the rider is saved from securing the filler cap during refuel-ing.

Bestowed with a wheelbase of 1255mm and a long seat, the bike offers a comfortable seating posture to the pillion too. During the brief ride, Rohan, who is very much on the taller side and finds pillion seat on most commuter bikes to be a tad restrictive, didn’t complain even once of any discomfort.

Overall, the bike boasts of pleasant looks and well sorted out ergonomics. We reckon that an average commuter would have nary an issue with either the Looks or the Ergonomics department.
