Precisely the best selling motorcycle brand of Bajaj and India. The Discover bikes replaced the Splendor series of Hero Motocorp in September 2012 to become the world's largest selling motorcycle brand. Bajaj sold out 1,22,968 units of Discover bikes, while Hero could dispatch only 1,21,018 Splendor units.
