Last-month, Bajaj Auto launched two new models under the Discover moniker with new styling and bigger engine, in the form of Discover 150S (standard fairing) and Discover 150F (half fairing). Here are the pictures and details of the latest and most powerful commuter-focussed bike in India.
Bajaj Discover 150F is inspired from the Discover 125ST and shares design similarities, graphics, web-spoke alloy wheels and body panels with it. This is easily the most matured look in entire Discover portfolio. Thankfully, the fairing doesn’t look much like something weird fitment on the front; it blends into the overall design well.
Rest of the design came from its sibling 125ST which comprises of muscular fuel tank, front and rear mudguards, a long seat, silver finished grab rails, plain side cowl, sleek tail piece, LED tail lamp, clear lens indicators, rear monoshock, alloy wheels, front disc brake and the like. The 150F also gets the traditional decals that make it look quite appealing.
The Discover 150F features a digital-analogue instrument console that comprises of a digital fuel gauge, clock, odometer, trip-meter along with an analogue speedometer. The 150F also comes with low fuel and low battery indicators. An electric starter, maintenance free battery and tubeless tires are the other noteworthy equipment highlights.
Powering the Discover 150F is an all new 150cc, air-cooled, 4-valve, DTS-i engine, mated to a 5-speed gearbox that has an all-up shift pattern. The air cooled engine puts out 14.3 BHP at 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 12.75 Nm at 6500 rpm. The motorcycle has an average mileage of 55-60 kmpl and can reach a top speed of 110 kmph.
The Bajaj Discover 150F is the only 150cc semi-faired offering available in the Indian market, however, it might steal the customers of Hero Ignitor and Honda CBF Stunner, which comes in the 125cc semi-faired segment. At ex-showroom Delhi price of Rs. 59,034, Bajaj Discover 150F is a good value for money product.
Bajaj Discover 150F is marketed has a premium commuter bike and it surely keeps up to that tag. One shouldn’t make the mistake of assuming Discover 150F is a proper 150cc segment motorcycle at a much affordable price. It is rather a high standard Discover with appreciable level of style, build quality and features for the premium it demands.
