Bajaj has done a great job with the new Discover 110

Verdict – Bajaj Auto has done a great job on the Discover 110 by adding new features and by making it a more rider-friendly motorcycle. I had never ridden a Discover like this which is smooth and relaxed at the same time. At Rs. 50,496/- (ex-showroom, Mumbai), it has been priced aggressively. The new Discover looks decent and fresh and has also become modern due to the addition of few bits like the digital display. The engine is refined and smooth and the gearbox too has a good response. Though the front brake doesn’t have a good feedback, I wish if the company would have offered a disc brake as an option at least. The ride quality is what makes this bike an ideal commuter motorcycle.

Paintjob and graphics match well and are done well

What’s Cool

* Torquey nature of the engine has a lot of good traits
* Comfortable ergonomics and plush suspension result into a phenomenal ride
* Nice paint job with graphics and digital display make it sportier yet commuter

What’s Not So Cool

* Front drum brakes lack feel and feedback
* The amount of vibrations kicking in at higher RPMs isn’t pleasing

Alternatives: TVS Victor, Hero Passion and Honda Dream Series

The “inverted-horns” like LED DRLs give it an identity
