The leading motorcycle manufacturer in India, Bajaj has revamped their Bajaj Discover 125cc segment with the 2012 New Bajaj Discover 125 Sports Tourer. When for the first time Bajaj launched its discover 125cc at april 2011, which got many positive vibe now after solid one year major revamp has happened to the Discover 125 segment. With its aggressive design and slightly raised rear seat, the new Bajaj Discover 125 ST makes everyday fun ride to work. It fits right inside one of the premium commuter bike in India.
The first impression after looking in Bajaj Discover 125 ST – The fuel tank looks strikingly similar to that of Suzuki GS150R, after that the styling performance and sporty look has a slight soil of new Pulsar 200 NS. It has completely removed the boring design and outdated features.
What’s new in 2012 Bajaj Discover 125 ST ?
Monoshock Rear Suspension. It’sthe first bike to get the monoshock rear suspension in this 125cc segment. Also adding to it the Anti Vibration chasis frame for better stability, superb handling and comfort. Apart from that, Slender ribbed alloy wheels, but looks filmsy in my opinion (haven’t test rided it yet)
