Bajaj Discover 125 ST Review

Bike tested: 2012 Bajaj Discover 125 ST

Price OTR Mumbai: Rs. 63,985/-

Bajaj Auto is on a launch spree this year, launching new motorcycles across various segments. While all the other offerings are targeted at the performance segment, the Bajaj Discover 125 ST is targeted towards commuters. On paper the Discover 125 ST looks promising by being the first 125cc bike to feature 4-valves, petal discs and a monoshock suspension. But is it enough to make the Discover 125 ST the best bike in its segment?

Styling – The Discover 125 ST looks like a bigger Discover in pictures, but when you see it in flesh, you will realize that the tank is much more substantial. The motorcycle is very muscular (very Pulsarish) and it has the right curves and perfectly executed knee recesses on both sides. The rear fenders are much sleeker and have a bulge below, which extends all the way to the LED tail light, which itself is the most striking design to feature on any commuter motorcycle till date. The pointy turn indicators on the Discover 125 ST and the complete headlight assembly has an edgy design language and reminds one of the Pulsar 135 LS.

The front mudguard is multi-colored rather than what is seen on the Discover’s Japanese rivals. The Y-Shaped spokes on the alloy wheels is something we really love and were surprised to see on this motorcycle and certainly it will be very imposing to the customers as well. This time, the rear end is executed well with the split mudguard and a traditional mudguard with number plate holder is present too. The curvy looking exhaust, the open chain case and the Pulsar derived aluminium foot pegs, though smaller in size is a welcome thought to the Discover 125 ST.

Ergonomics – The seating position of the Bajaj Discover 125 ST is upright and the wide handle bar with an extremely supportable and comfortable seat gives a relaxed feeling. The rear view mirrors are excellent for people of almost any size. Seats have superior cushioning for pillion and the rider. The knee recess is big enough to hold any one and normal people will not be complaining of the fatigue. Overall, long journeys are very comfortable on the Discover ST.

Instrument Cluster and Switch Gear – The instrument cluster of the Discover 125 ST looks appealing and has a logical layout to it. It has three dials. One shows the speedometer with integrated odometer and trip meter. The fonts used on the speedometer look very unique and add to the sportiness. There is a fuel gauge pod and a third digital screen showing shift light, high beam, turn indicator, battery indicator and a Bajaj logo which is illuminated both during the day and night. A tachometer is sorely missed on the bike. The switch gear is not illuminated and has a very odd pass light button. Engine kill switch has been omitted.

Performance and Gearbox – The Discover ST is powered by a 125cc DTSi, 4-valve, 4-stroke, air-cooled engine with corrugated fins which pumps out 12.8 BHP of power at 9000 RPM and 10.78 Nm of torque at 7000 RPM. The engine is smooth, throttle response is linear, and motor has a very distinctive sound of any Bajaj motorcycle, which may be due to the new air intake system adopted by the company. The Discover 125 ST does feel stressed due to less displacement and more horse power being squeezed out from it, which results in vibrations. It reaches 85 km/h, after which progress is slow but it will reach a top speed of 105 km/h.

Despite the commuter gearing, which we recently saw on the Honda Dream Yuga and Suzuki Hayate as well, the acceleration is brisk, considering the overall linear tuning of the Discover 125 ST. The 5-speed gearbox is a bit clunky but it’s a huge leap over the previous generation Discovers and Pulsars. The motor is best when it’s in third and the fifth gear, in which it pulls strongly. The Discover 125 ST is a very frugal bike. The motorcycle will return 55 km/l in the city and 60 km/l out on the highways, which is very good for a 125cc machine.

Ride, Handling and Braking – The Discover 125 ST has 200 mm petal disc at the front and basic 130 mm drum brakes at the rear. Braking is good but could have been better with a better master cylinder and caliper. The Discover ST has 2.75 tyres at the front and 3.00 tyres at the rear backed by 17-inch wheels which are aided by telescopic forks at the front and gas filled piggyback monoshock at the rear. Dynamics of the Discover ST are mediocre; it’s no corner carver though due to softer suspension set up at the front and at the rear.

The single tube chassis is stiff and the setup uses engine as a part of the chassis. The ride quality is plush for the rider and the pillion on our broken roads. Maneuvering this bike in city traffic is effortless. The 170 mm ground clearance clears the biggest speed breakers with utmost ease with a pillion on-board. High speed stability is good, but there is wind blast.

Miscellaneous – Fit and finish is good and the plastic quality as well as the price at which the product is being offered is on par with its rivals. Everything feels like it has been built to last. Headlight has an excellent spread at night. The missing tachometer is shocking. Paint-job is excellent and it’s being offered with very different color options as well. Corrugated fins are being used for the first time on a Bajaj motorcycle which improves air cooling by a good margin, hoping to see them on all future Bajaj motorcycles. The engine guard, horn, side-stand, electric starter and RVM come as factory fitment. Horn is puny and an upgrade is necessary for you in case you rely on it most of the time.

Conclusion – The Bajaj Discover 125 ST is a very different commuter when it comes to styling and goodies, but deep down it is the same commuter which will make the average joe happy with slightly better acceleration, higher fuel economy and ease of use nature. But if you’re an enthusiast and if you want performance, this is not what you will like. If you want something around the same price bracket and displacement category, the Pulsar 135 is for you. However if you want a comfortable 125cc bike, which rides well and delivers excellent mileage, the Discover 125 ST is hard to beat.

    At last a bike to Conquer the Throne of 125 cc Performance bikes like Stunner and commuter bike CB Shine.
    Is this engine refinement compared to the OPTimax 125 Honda mill?
    Bajaj worked hard on this 125 cc segment, i think..

    Hi,

    I have sold my old Yamaha Fazer(125cc)and i am thinking to buy a new bike in 1-2 days. i have shortlisted some of bike please suggest me which one is better for me.

    Height: 5.4
    Budget: 50k-71k
    Fuel:weekly 100km
    used :office and city ride may be 1-2 long trip on Year.
    Looks: Stylish, New and Noticeable.

    Shortlisted Bike:-
    Yamaha Fz/FZs
    Apache 160
    Bajaj 125st/pulsar 150/180
    Honda Unicorn/Shine

    Please help me sir :( Very Confused. I like 125st but i am worry about Thin Tyres because sometime i drive very roughly. Fz Have the Big Tyres That’s why i like the FZ/FZ 16 But Its 20k Costly. :(

    Thanks

      boss in 125cc –shine is best and unbeatable but its problem is it doesnt go 80/90 speeds the 125ST can go but engine performence may vary by time on later as earlier bajaj bikes(shine with 5 gears is unbeatable forever any bike cant generate that power at that rpm)
      in 110 cc u go for mahindra centuro (unbeatable by its mileage)
      or you for 150 cc you go for honda trigger /apache 2011 models i think new model is not look worthy

Please provide more info on GS150R as regards performance & after sales service. I am from Mumbai and intend to use the bike in the city mainly. If I get a positive reply I would go for GS150R or else I would settle for 125ST. Budget is no constraint. Pl reply

    • soni December 19, 2012, 10:37 pm

      gs 150 is a great bike with low vibration and noise and with smooth engine.another one advantage is that no requirement of gear shifting during traffic jam this bike can pick up in 6th gear at 35kmph speed.only one problem with that only service station of suzuki rest is ultimate bike

      Reply
      • chandrasekhar December 19, 2012, 10:56 pm

        Thanks Soni. The problem you mentioned of the service station is about the attitude & poor service of the station OR about the service station not available in near vicinity. The Dolphin two wheeler showroom in Andheri- Sakinaka is just 2 kms from my work place. Would it be worthwhile to go for GS150R in this case… Please revert asap…Thanks in advance…

    Huge vibrations, 5th gear feels like 3rd at speeds higher than 50, the pillion rider cannot hold the grip handle due to vibrations and hands & legs going numb. Already got stomach cramps due to vibrations in a few days of purchase. Overall a very stupid purchase. The only good thing perhaps is, may be it is good sprinter in the city. But pretty useless on the high way.

    about the vibrations..its not a new thing with Bajaj…all the Bajaj’s bikes have the same problem…125cc is a very confusing segment…ppl go for 125cc segment when they want fuel economy comparable to 110cc n power a bit extra than 110cc…ending up in losing both the things…i would suggest….either go for 110cc bike like honda dream yuga or Hero passion Xpro…or 150cc bike…like CBZ extreme or unicorn…

    Hai frinds I bought ST,
    but after 3 months the byke shows gear box complaint.
    Rest the byke 4,5 hours(or day first starting) then start ,use clutch and shift gear
    you will see the byke moving rapidly and produce a dynamite sound or self start at first gear (from clutch) the byke move forward and produce that crackable sound.
    Bajaj mechanic talled me,
    in clutch use kicker four three times and then start the byke the problom solve …
    ITS WORKING(but the kicker touch somthing)
    pls share ur feed back

    Hi Faisal/Mohit,

    I’m looking for a good 125 cc bike. My choices are Discover 125ST & Honda Shine. After going through a lot of reviews i found that major complaints about shine is vibrations above 50/60 kmph & for ST this discussion itself has shown number of problems like with gearbox & again vibrations & also the long term durability of Bajaj motorcycles. For me long term means at least 8 yrs. I want purchase the bike in loan scheme. Therefore my office colleagues are suggesting me to up my game to Honda Unicorn which is best in 150 cc segment & is tried & tested & no durability issues. But the thing that bothers me is Bajaj is offering many features like 4 valve & twin spark in 125st & it costs a lot less, whereas Unicorn costs 13k more with less features & less mileage. Also bajaj is developing great power in 125cc segment & almost close to Unicorn. Major concern is durability for me. Pls suggest which one to buy.

    Bajaj now launched 125T with new engine. Is 125ST going to discontinue due to gear complaint?
    Pls suggest me
    125st or 125t which is best
