    Official Press Release
    New Delhi, May 14, 2012: Bajaj Auto, the world’s third largest motorcycle company today launched the ‘Discover 125 ST” designed to add a whole new dimension to the commuter segment.

    Elaborating on the company strategy, Sanjay Saraswat, GM Marketing, said that for too long the average commuter had to be satisfied with boring bikes.

    The new Discover Sports Tourer (ST) is all set to change this in a dramatic fashion.

    With the styling and performance of a sports bike, yet with the comfort and economy of a commuter bike, the “Discover ST” aims to redefine commuting from “Chalta Hai “to “Daudta Hai”.

    Powered by Bajaj’s patented “DTS-i Twin Spark” technology, for the first time in this category, the engine is designed with 4 valves. The Bike delivers a record 13 PS of power, highest in the 125cc category, without compromising on fuel efficiency.

    Bajaj Auto’s patented “ExhausTec” Technology enhances drive-ability.

    A five speed gear box ensures optimum power delivery, coupled with good fuel efficiency.

    Complementing the performance is a very sporty styling.

    The bike is defined by a chiseled muscular fuel tank.

    An aggressive fairing with sharp edged headlamp underlines the sporty look.

    Slender ribbed alloy wheels along with aluminum side sets add to the aesthetics.

    Comfort takes a new dimension with another first - a “Monoshock Nitrox Suspension”’

    A specially designed “Anti Vibration” frame ensures an enjoyable ride across all terrains.

    Another first is the “Petal Disc Brake” enhancing safety.


    Commenting on the launch K Srinivas, President - Motorcycle Business, said, “We believe that the average Indian commuter has to compromise a lot for fuel efficiency. With the Discover ST we are making a statement that mileage need not come with boring design and outdated features.

    He further added, “The Sports Tourer is an everyday fun ride to work. We believe that the sporty evolution of the commuter category will occur fast, and it is our intention to dominate this segment by introducing such breakthrough products.”

                        Now whats the difference between Discover ST and Pulsar 135LS? Both are effectively same bikes.

                          As I said somewhere else, hold onto your torque monsters (ZMA/ZMR/P220s) because the new gen bikes would all be short stroke + high revving ones like 200NS / Duke / CBR150R in order to meet oncoming Fuel Efficiency and Emission norms just like it is happening with modern cars.
                          You are right but these modern machines are much more costly than traditional performance bikes like ZMA,220

                              better looking alloys
                              more fuel tank capacity
                              commuterish looks
                              monoshocks
                              10cc less(negligible power difference)
                              petal discs
                              more comfortable looking seats
                              tube tyres

                              cant think of more...
