Bajaj has launched its new Discover 150cc motorcycle in two variants – the 150F and the 150S for the Indian market. These new 150F (faired) and 150S (standard) variants sport an all new 144.8-cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine which is capable of producing 14.4 PS and 12.7Nm of torque respectively. The 150F features an analogue speedometer and a digital odometer combo along with the standard trip, fuel and service indicators. While, the console on the 150S is more analogue rather than digital. Both the variants also sport a new LED tail-lamp setup.
Both the flagship Discover models get an electric-start, telescopic front forks, a rear monoshock as part of the standard package. They also get 240mm front disc brakes along with 130mm rear drum brakes, edgy ten-spoke alloys and MRF tubeless tires. These Discover variants are built around a semi-double cradle frame, with rectangular section steel swingarms, thereby tipping the scales with a kerb weight of 132kg (150F) and 130kg (150S) respectively.
Bajaj Auto are betting it big of both these variants as they look to strengthen their position in the market. The Discover 150F is priced at Rs 58,739 and the Discover 150S is priced at Rs 54,725 with a cheaper drum brake version at Rs 51,720 (all prices ex-showroom, Pune). The Discover 150F and 150S are available on sale in Bajaj showrooms across India.
