    Hi all xbphians.
    Thanks to all for your kind comments and helping me to choose DISCOVER 125 ST.This is my first bike and would rate this as the one of the best product from BAJAJ.
    Well the new 125 ST has certainly changed the brand image. "Discover" which was popular to known for "Deluxe Commuter" now addresses as "Stylish Commuter" with the new 125 ST. Its Handsome , muscular and bulky . The moment you sit on it you dont feel it as 125cc and can easily pass 150cc(am not mentioning R15 or CBR 150R but to basic models like discover 150 , GS150R,etc)

    I got this beauty last night only , so i couldnt experiment much with. And was given strict order that no crusing in exceed of 50 till 1000km I had to maintain in 40s. The throttle sound more like pulsars, waiting to unleash. The Riding position is very comfortable . Am 6 foot long and weigh 85kg . It suits me well. The riding was actually a pleasure. Their wasnt any false neutral , shifting was easy and good. The headlamp works soo cool . You neednt worry about the street lamp anymore, it covers ample area on the road. The highlight of this bike is MONO SHOCK Suspension Its the first in the segment and works out great . If you find this beauty very comfortable then you got to give credit to MONO SHOCK.

    By far i would say this is the best bike in 125cc . If anyone of you wants to have stylish racing and millage . I would say go for this without any second thought . More updates on millage and top speed once i finish my first service

        Don't know, but to me, it looks very similar to slingshot from side ways!!

            Thread title says "Discover 125ST First impression", was wondering why first impression is in ownership section!! I guess that needs to be changed.

            Rafirashi, congrats on your new buy. Agree with you, at the moment Discover 125ST is the best choice in 125cc segment and it looks like a big bike for 125cc.

                  congrats for the new bike and on being the first owner of Disco 125ST.

                  but frankly, this bike looks good only in pictures and on road it looks just a commuter bike, nothing more than it, and i feel words like "beauty" "Stylish Commuter" does not fit correctly.

                  even i call my P150... a little BEAST, but thats because i own it and i love it, but everyone knows a P150 is not at all be called a beast.

                          Yes i was considering other options but decided it once i test rode it . The throttle sound was awesome . For a few min i forgot i was riding 125 cc bike.
                          And this was best for the price . i dont see any other bike offering u so much feature for 63k. Am from Chennai and the On road price is 63,627 INR. I had to wait a month long to get ma bike . But it was worth waiting for. I took From Khivraj Motors which is in mount road. Its the main branch in chennai . And the experience was nice .

                              Bajaj designers inspired by suzuki ????

                              I'm not sure why Bajaj is so much kanjoos in giving Disc brakes for Lower CC Bikes?? Even Honda Twister has bigger disc than this Bike...

                              No Rear sets for a Monoshock Bike??? doesn't gives any racing look...

                              May be first of its kind a Monoshock in a 125cc bike when some manufacturers do not even have it in their Flagship models itself...
