Bajaj is one of the most popular motorcycle brands in the South Asian region. Bajaj is so popular that it has also collaborated with KTM. Over the years Bajaj has sold countless commuter motorcycles in Bangladesh. Bikes series such as the Pulsar Series, Discover Series, and Platina Series are widely popular among Bangladeshis.
The Bajaj Discover 125 Disc is a commuter bike. What most people fail to acknowledge is that this bike comes with a disc on the front wheel. Although a disc on the front wheel is not enough for sports bikes or naked sports, for commuters this is a huge thing. The disc at the front of the bike increases the braking performance and handling of the bike significantly.
The Bajaj Discover 125 Disc’s mileage is probably one of the best in this segment. The bike has an expected mileage of around 60+kmpl in Bangladesh. A 125cc bike with such mileage is commendable. The mileage of the bike can easily make you forget to fill your tank for a long time.
The Bajaj Discover 125 Disc comes with a very neo-retro instrument cluster. The instrument cluster comes with a speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meter, clock, and other necessary indicators. The speedometer of the bike is an analog unit, while the rest of the features are digital. However, the bike misses on an RPM counter and a gear position indicator.
The Bajaj Discover 125 Disc comes in 4 different colors. They are:
Ebony Black Red.
Ebony Black Blue.
All four bikes come with very similar decal designs.
The Bajaj Discover 125 Disc is a short motorcycle. It has a low saddle, and anyone above the height of 5’3” can swing a leg over the bike comfortably. The bike has a ground clearance of 165mm, which is enough for the city commute. The bike has a fuel tank of 8 liters, which is not much, but the mileage of the bike compensates for it.
The Bajaj Discover 125 Disc has an average-sized body compared to other bikes. The height, length, width, and weight of the Bajaj Discover 125 Disc are 1085mm, 2035mm, 760mm, and 125kg respectively. The bike is not very light when compared to most 125cc bikes, but this keeps the bike stable at high speeds. This bike also has a very short wheelbase of 1305mm, which makes it quite compact but also makes it stable at the corners.
Engine and Transmission:
The Bajaj Discover 125 Disc has a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, and 124.5cc engine. The engine is carbureted and air-cooled, which is expected at this price range. The engine pumps out around 11PS at 8000rpm and 10.8Nm of torque at 5500rpm. The power is quite adequate compared to other bikes of this range. It has a possible mileage of around 60+kmpl on average. It has both electric (self) and kick start.
The Bajaj Discover 125 Disc also has a basic wet multi-plate clutch system. There are 5 gears for the transmission, which means the engine is quite strong. It has a top speed of around 100kmph (Company claimed).
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The strongest aspect of the Bajaj Discover 125 Disc is the brake setup. The bike comes with a disc-drum setup. The front-wheel gets a 200mm disc brake while the rear wheel gets a drum. The front disc increases the braking performance of the bike quite well. The rear brake may not be the best but it is good enough.
The Bajaj Discover 125 Disc comes with a telescopic fork set up at the front and a spring-loaded Nitrox (gas-filled) twin shock setup at the rear. The front telescopic forks are expected to respond well on the road, as it has 130mm fork travel. The rear Nitrox suspension is also expected to perform adequately in the city as the suspensions have 110mm travel.
The Bajaj Discover 125 Disc has alloy wheels. It has 2.75/17 and a 100/90-17 tire setup. The front tire would have been okay for a 125cc bike if it had been slightly thicker. The rear wheel is also quite good as it is quite thick compared to other bikes of this segment.
