Bajaj Discover 100M Review

Bike Tested: 2013 Bajaj Discover 100M

Price OTR Mumbai: Rs. 54,900/-

The Discover 100M is the most potent 100cc commuter bike with a right blend of performance and features.

It is no secret that after the Pulsar, the Discover has been the best selling motorcycle for Bajaj Auto. Obviously, when you have two brands and one of them is in the commuter segment, which is a key market in India, it is bound to bring the company volumes. However, the Pulsar is butter, but they need the bread too, right? It is not easy for Bajaj Auto to break into the volume churning commuter segment where the market leader has 24 models while Bajaj Auto has a measly ten products to retaliate. Nevertheless, that does not stop the company from trying, does it? Bajaj has clearly mentioned a year ago that they have six new Discovers waiting to be launched and four of them are here. The 125 ST, 125T, 100T and now the fresh from Akrudi’s oven is the 100M. Yes, the M stands for mileage and internally for Bajaj, a brand new platform. This new platform is identical to the T variants (the one with dual side gas charged shocks at the rear and less horsepower) but not the same. When we rode the Discover 100M for a short time at the launch, our initial impressions were positive. After a brief time with the bike, we are here with the complete road test, how is the new Discover 100M? Let us find out!

Motor Quest: Bajaj launched the first Discover in 2004 which was powered by a 125cc engine. The first entry-level commuter variant of the Discover (112cc) was launched in 2005 with a mileage claim of 101 km/l.

Bajaj Discover 100M Performance ReviewBajaj Discover 100M Test Ride

Styling – The Bajaj Discover 100M is a replica of the Discover 100T. However the 100M gets Pulsar inspired aluminium side sets which are larger than the 100T. The chain guard has moulds outside to make it look more attractive and funky. The exhaust is much longer, looks sleeker and it gets a different heat shield. The headlight and tail light remain the same. The side panels are devoid of the fuel knob. The panels are now body painted and comes with graphics on it. Y-spoke alloy wheels as any other Discover variant are here as well and the dominant tank makes the motorcycle look swell in the eyes of a commuter. All this projects an image of a larger motorcycle than it actually is.

Instrument Cluster and Switch Gear – In terms of aesthetics, same cluster continues to be a part of the 100 M as well. There are quite of lot things skipped here. The chrome bits that surround both meters are gone. Battery warning indicator has been omitted. Yellow markings inside the speedometer don’t make it to the cluster either. The analog trip meter with reset button also has been dismissed from the 100 M. Solitary side indicators, always-illuminated Bajaj logo and high beam indicators are here. Switchgear is the same and pass light switch stays.

Ergonomics – The seating position of the Bajaj Discover 100M is upright. That means the footrests are not rear set, but are right below you, so that results in the rider sitting near to the tank. The narrow handlebar gives the rider confidence for tackling city traffic. The rear view mirrors give a good view of what is behind to almost any sized rider. The seats have superior cushioning and are wide too, offering excellent comfort to the pillion and the rider. The knee recesses on the tank are accommodating and make you feel attached to the motorcycle.

Performance and Gearbox – The Discover 100M is powered by a 102cc, DTS-i, 4-valve, under-square engine which produces a power output of 9.3 PS at 8000 RPM and torque output of 9.2 Nm at 6000 RPM. Changes are made to the CDI and valve train to achieve this slightly detuned state. However, if you notice the engine produces power and torque at lower RPM’s than the 100T which combined with lower weight puts it on par with its elder sibling. The power to weight ratio is only down by a measly 2.7 PS/tonne. A lightweight rider can match the acceleration time of the 100T effortlessly. The engine is smooth, throttle response is good and the motor responds swiftly to the rider’s inputs. Acceleration is brisk and low-end torque is excellent. Where this motor truly shines is the mid-range. Performance is surreal for a 100cc motorcycle, after 50 km/hr, the bike quickly reaches 80 km/hr. Progress to the top speed, which is 95 km/hr, is slow. The 4-speed gearbox is smooth and aided by positive shifts, it’s a great unit altogether. Taller gear ratios help to extract the best from this powerplant.

The 100cc engine revs up smoothly to the redline and NVH levels are fantastic and even better than the Discover 100T. Engine sounds throaty too with the new intake system. This is because the engineers have worked really hard on the NVH of the 100M. The motorcycle we had on test had done 300 odd kms, so it was not extremely buzzy like the bike we had ridden at the first ride event. This shows that a brand new engine is not happy and tends to vibrate slightly. Discover’s engine and gearbox feels better every time a new model comes in. Bajaj is definitely going up the ladder when it comes to refinement.

Discover 100M Road Test

Riding Dynamics – The Discover 100M is lighter by 6 kgs thanks to every single dimension being shorter by a considerable margin. 500 ml of fuel space is also compromised within the tank to achieve the lightweight number. Seat height has come down by 15 mm. The alloy wheels and tyres are the same and the front suspension is lowered by 5 mm. The Discover 100M stays planted in the corners and there is good grip from the tyres too. The front fork geometry is tuned for manoeuvrability, rather than sporty crisp turn-in as this is what this segment requires. Damping is superior and mature. Superb balance of ride and handling feels very stable the moment you take a short spin. The rear suspension is on the softer side. However, since most riders don’t ride alone or carry some luggage most of the time, it’s an ideal setup for them indeed.

The u-turn radius is radically short. Ride quality is good and the motorcycle absorbs even big bumps which don’t upset the Discover 100M. Brake at the front was a disc (the bike comes with a drum at the front as standard) in our test bike and like the customer’s demand, it is devoid of initial bite and lacks feel. However the motorcycle does stop well in stop-go traffic. Rear brakes are drums and they do a good job of shedding speeds well. High speed stability is good and changing directions at speeds doesn’t upset the motorcycle’s balance.

Bajaj Discover 100M Road Test ReviewBajaj Discover 100M Review

Miscellaneous – Headlight illumination is top notch and the spread is excellent too. Paint quality and fit-finish is excellent all around. Electric start, alloy wheels, drum brakes, DC ignition come as standard on this motorcycle. Tail light is not a LED on the 100M. Fitment like engine guard, rear view mirrors and sari guard come as standard. Horn is puny and an upgrade is necessary in case you rely on it most of the time. We once complained that new colours should be introduced on the Discover series. The new 100M comes with olive green which already exists on the normal 2-valve brothers, we are not complaining though. Flap mechanism on the fuel filler cap is an excellent idea always, a rarity in other motorcycles from the same category. As always, an excellent move by Bajaj Auto by keeping corrugated fins on the Discover 100M for better cooling, just like the Discover family variants. Front disc is available as an option, hurray!

Verdict – As always, Bajaj Auto has nailed it with the value for money proposition it offers with the Discover 100M. We agree to the fact that this is the most expensive 100cc of the lot (100T aside) but the features on offer and the handsome styling makes it a fabulous package. This Discover should find homes much more easily than other Discovers in the rural market. Bajaj says this particular model has hopes attached with it when it comes to rural market share. It will not be easy to cut the cake here because this is where Hero MotoCorp has a blind following. However, Bajaj Auto is offering something different from the competition, which should work in their favour because we think this is what a commuter of the 21st century really needs.

The Discover 100M offers big bike appearance along with good performance, fantastic mileage and value for money in the entry-level commuter segment.

      Quality levels are on par with price tag that it comes with. It certainly doesn’t feel cheap in any area. It feels build solidly and any uncle who will test ride is bound to fall in love with the stability which we experienced during our test period with several “potent customers” feeling the same about it :)

  • Ben October 31, 2013, 7:45 pm

    The review was excellent and clear cut. But bajaj must live up to expectations in the reliability factor. Way back in 2007, bajaj launched the discover 135 dtsi which was claimed to be the best in class at that time but due to bajaj’s strategy it now not there. Any thing similar should not happen to this bike as I was once a customer of that bike. also I fear that discover 100 is going to be axed by bajaj soon.

      If you are talking about the 2-Valve 4 gear Discover 100. Well that is the bike which is in a totally different and competitive segment and comes at a very cheap price. Bajaj has no plans to discontinue it and the fact is that Discover 100 4G is the cheapest discover you can buy today!

    • Mohit November 7, 2013, 5:54 pm

      John, totally off topic but, 220 gives a better mileage and kmpl numbers can reach 40 when considering your driving driving style and speed Karizma numbers are lower and Karizma ZMR will return same number as the 220 on the highway because of FI

      What looks stylish? i think you should decide that since you’re going to buy it ;)

      Abdul, Since the Xpro and 100M fall in same price bracket you decide which brand you would prefer. Discover 100M comes with a lot of convenient features and excellent power and economy blend. Centuro has been a great success for Mahindra because it is a great product and truly something really different. Want something completely new.. get the Centuro which has similar on road kmpl numbers

      100t will give you performance expected from this segment’s best powerhouse. 100m is just like it’s elder brother, but slightly tuned for mileage and other above mentioned things. Centuro has host of innovative features like blink lights to find bike in night, etc. If you aren’t looking for super high mileage and want thrill of riding. 100t is the bike for you.

    I am planning to buy a best mileage bike with durability and easy handling. I used to ride on Honda Activa, which is non-gear scooter and I am considering a geared bike for a first time user. When I contacted Bajaj Dealer, asking about 100T disc brake variant, they told me to buy 100M as they promote it now. I would like to know which one is good for me, I am really confused.. Please help

      Get the 100T, that is a better option.

      Get the Discover 100T but Dream Neo will be more reliable alternative.

      my issue is xpro and dream yuga comes with tubeless tires which is more usefull for commuters rather thn 4-valve head…all discover’s and pulsar-135,pulsar-150 rides tube type tires and reason behind it bajaj hardcore fans knw..

        Kp, those tyres are tubeless for sure. However i will give you a quiz to solve which is by getting same dimension tyres as tubeless outside in the market. They are not available AT ALL. 4 valve i think is going to stay much longer ;)

        Anyways reliable options are here and then there there is everything in some bikes. You decide

          bhai mohit they run tube type wheels expect p-180,p220 and 200ns run as per my knowledge and if they updated it very good…talking abt key features on bikes a 2-tier city lik vizag whenever i stop signal point i observe ppl hardly use engine kill switch on rtr,pulsars and fz’s may there r not aware of it or thy dont want use it…and coming to tubeless tyres are available for 18 inch tyres of dream yuga,dream and xpro and bajaj discovers and pulsar use ride on 17 inch ones…for pulsar 150 tyre size same on honda stunner and hero ignitor..

    I have a Passion bike with me at present. Though fully satisfied with it I wish to go for a different company. I find Bajaj Discover’s looks attractive but not sure of reliability. Most mechanics say that except Platina 100 cc, all Bajaj bikes start giving troubles very early.
    I am now confused between Dream Neo and Bajaj 100T or 100M company. I want a little improvement in terms of power over the Passion I have been using till now.
    Can anyone suggest me.

      100M is the bike according to your requirement. Regarding mechanic talk, its all bullshit most of the time. Mechanics in India are so lazy even if you pay them double for work they will send you back home and tell you to come back tomorrow.

      Platina is a good bike but its very dated and serious entry level bike from Bajaj which lacks what you need a motorcycle (as per your requirement)

      If you have littel more money. Better buy a 125cc bike which gives you mileage, power, looks everything in one package then go for entry level commuters, be it any brand because you spend a littel more, but get peace of mind for years to come. Test ride 125t and see if you like it. If you think any other brand then test ride honda shine too and decide if you still want most basic 100cc or not.

    Hi
    Atlast after much of analysis and home work , purchased the Discover 100M.
    I had decided the colour of the bike TVS sport and went to purchase TVS sport and later had a choice to test drive both TVS sport and 100M, ended up buying 100M

    Looks: 100M looked masculine ,finishing had a premium touch especially from the front. TVS sport did not give such a feeling while sitting and riding.
    Milage: TVS sport may have an edge over 100M,
    Graphics and colour options: TVS sport has better option in choice of colours and 100M has limited options
    Side stand: 100M could have been stronger
    seat comfort: for 100M the front and the pillion seat feeling are hard on your bummies especially if you are looking for over 50km ride signal free ride.
    Engine: 100M is smooth, and vibration levels are not disturbing below 50kmph. However beyond 60kmph, you could feel engine trying hard to catch up to your request.Since its a new bike did not want to push beyond 65kmpl atleast cosidering the guidlines given in the owners manual.
    The best part is the ability of the bike to go even at 30KMPH in 4th gear.
    I ALSO FELT THE NEED FOR 5th GEAR, hope the Bajaj R&D team is listening.
    Brakes: Though good enough for normal city riding, I felt that I could have gone for disc brake.
    Design of tank: The looks of the 100M fuel tank is lovely, however for those looking for keeping few things like say a handbage with vegetables, etc, this may not be a so welcome design. I am considering having box fitted to accomodate small house hold purchase.

    Milage: has given me 65kmpl in first week and should stabilise around 68-70 . (I have identified that the idealing is a bit high on my bike as of now , will have it fixed at the service point in the next visit)
    Thanks
    Nagesh

    Sir, I am a regular visitor of your e-mag & I love it, its phenomenal & thank you for creating it.

    Currently, I ride Hero Honda CD Dawn. Its is nice bike for city, you know good mileage & all.
    Its been 2 years I am using Dawn, now i want to change it. I took 25-30kms stroll on weekdays and 150-200 on weekends (nearly 1000kms./month). I want comfort, good resale value(coz. I’ll change it within 2-3 yrs), reliability and mileage(without saying)
    I’ve shortlisted :
    1- Discover 100M
    2- Passion XPRO
    3- Dream Yuga

    Please suggest…
    Tx…

      Why not consider the Centuro?

      Reply
      • Parag January 23, 2014, 6:54 pm

        Yeah? But you only said its not proven yet, and its not a well-established brand.
        And one more thing about Discover 100M, do Discovers give good resale value (well Pulsars do) after 2-3 yrs. Coz, my local Hero franchise giving me about 65-70% of ex for my Dec.2011 Dawn, which I think is good (what do you say? my Odo says 25000kms).

        I have same concern with Centuro, I mean its nice bike and loaded with features but waht about reliability and resale…..

    Hello Friends Discover 100 M Verry Bad Bike .
    Iske Handle Me Sound Jaldi Aati Hai . Or Vo Clear Bhi Nahi Hoti. Or Iske Shokar Bhi Jyada Looser Hai , Low Quality Ke Hai …

    1. Bike has starting problem, not a single day it started well.
    2. Bike stops while running on road suddenly
    3. While running on 50+ speed, bike gives a feeling that there is no petrol – glitches in every 10-20 meters
    4. Suspension is major issue, which is not working at all.
    5. Side line fiber makes noise/sounds on road joints
    Moral of the story forget this and get go for Passion or Deam Yuga.
