India's second largest motorcycle manufacturer Bajaj Auto added one more two-wheeler to its garage by launching the Discover 125T. The bike is available in two variants- with disc brake and without disc brake, and priced at Rs. 55,500 and Rs. 52,500 respectively (all are ex-showroom Delhi prices).
The all new Discover 125T extremely looks similar to its sibling the Discover 125ST. The only change physically found out is its Nitrox Twin (110 mm) rear suspension, while it's Nitrox Monoshock rear suspension in the Discover 125ST. Interestingly, Bajaj engineers have taken some pain here to modify technical specifications a bit. That's the Discover 125T is powered by a 124.6cc, Single cyl, 4-Valve, DTS-i engine instead of a 124.6cc, 4 Valve Twin Spark Air Cooled engine powers the Discover 125ST. Well, both bikes are coupled with a 5 speed gear transmission.
A slight power variation is also visible in the new Discover brother. The Discover 125T is slightly less powered with a max output of 12.5 ps @ 9000 rpm and a max torque of 10.8 Nm @ 6500 rpm, where as the Discover 125ST delivers a peak power of 13 Ps @ 9000 rpm and a peak torque of 10.8 Nm @ 7000 rpm. This minute variation in the power distribution pulls the Discover 125T to the second position in the initial delivery. However, the top speed of both machines remains 105 kmph.
The launch of the Discover 125T proves the word given by Bajaj officials in a press meet that the company would be launching 6 Discover bikes in the Financial Year 2013-14. According to the company strategy, the firm will launch 6 Discover bikes in each 6-8 weeks. The Discover 125T was the first to be launched. The next will be garaged either by the end of August or by the beginning of September.
Currently, the entry level motorcycle segment in India is facing very much competition than ever before. Each companies are launching more than one bikes in the same class. Hero MotoCorp is the best player in this category with its Splendor brand. The Discover machines was once took over the Splendor bikes in units. But, the position was retained by Hero. Meanwhile, Honda sounds challenging performance with the Dream Yuga and Dream Neo bikes. So Bajaj found no other way than introducing new products to win hearts of cutomers.As Hero, Honda and other companies are working out on new machines, competition will be tougher for the manufacturers.
