    Default Bajaj Discover 125ST Domestic Sale stopped: xBhp News

    Bajaj Auto has stopped domestic sales of the Discover 125ST, but will continue to produce it for exports




    Poor sales performance in the domestic market has forced Bajaj Auto to pull its flagship Discover model, the Discover 125ST off the market. The Discover 125ST which was launched around two years back (in May 2012) was targeted at the enthusiast on a budget. It had the most powerful engine in its class with a 4-valve head and twin spark plugs. It was also the only motorcycle in its class to come with a monoshock. However, the relatively higher pricing of the Discover 125ST is the main reason for its poor showing. Another factor that contributed to the Discover 125ST's dismal sales performance was its high rear seat height, which made it difficult for the pillion, mainly ladies, to mount the bike.

    The Discover 125ST is based on the more expensive of the current Discover platforms which it shares with the Discover 125T and 100T. It produces 13PS of max power coming in at a high 9,000rpm and has a claimed top speed of 105kmph. The fuel efficiency for the motorcycle under test conditions is rated at 77.1kmpl. To convey its intentions of being a sporty commuter, the Discover 125ST also only came with a 200mm petal front disc brake and no drum brake option. Bajaj has now pulled the Discover 125ST, which was priced at Rs 53,730 ex-showroom in Pune, off its website. This now limits Bajaj's 125 domestic range to three models: The Discover 125T now sits on top followed by the Discover 125M or new Discover 125, and the old shape Discover 125.

    There must have been an error of some sort, because i have not seen this news on the forum before.

    This was to happen as launching too much model will only ensure that not a single model sells in huge number.

    Also with this much models customers get problems in obtaining spares and service for bikes. Bajaj has always stopped selling their good bikes just in order to experiment.

    Some of its succesful models like caliber, caliber 115 and wind 125 were pulled to stop when they were selling in good numbers. This has led to customers not gaining trust in buying as they do not know when their bike will be stopped and resale value will go and also spares availabilty will become a problem.

    This frequent launching of different models is actually a curse for bajaj as it has let the public to lost faitj in the products life cycle.

    sad to know that, however, seat height is definitely one of the criteria in budget motorcycles, what is the use if saree clad women cant sit on it, in india it matters.

    When I bought the 200ns, I had fear that 99% it'd stop by the year end, and when bajaj announced dual tone colours, I literally thought this is the end (dual tones on a 1.5yr old bike that didn't sell much) ,but still right now, everything's fine but I'm constant at fear.
    And yeah, launching more varieties of discover than human race, it was bound to happen.
    Though 125 ST was the only discover, that I've ever liked. Sad it's out.
