The 124.6 cc engine mounted on the frame of Bajaj Discover 125 ST is a four stroke single cylinder engine that uses two valves for the inlet and two valves for the exhaust. The Digital Twin Spark ignition system uses capacitor discharge ignition to fire the charge. The engine is air cooled and one of the competitive edges of this bike is the 13 bhp power the bike can deliver at 9000 rpm. This high power for a 125 cc engine is responsible for the top end speed of the bike striking a maximum of 105 km/hr. The maximum torque produced by this engine is 11 Nm and it is attained at 7000 rpm. So the gear ratios would play a major role in initial pick up of the bike. But with a high power engine the bike could hit high speeds on a longer distance ride.
Design And Comfort
The head lamp of the bike is given sharp front with the jaws that widen towards the visor. The tank is designed to be slightly big with a small bulge towards front lower end of the tank. With the graphics the tank adds extra points to the sporty look. The silver coated side cover and rear footrest mount is given a dynamic design. The exhaust is coated black and has chrome plated exhaust cover. The wide seat supported by a monoshock suspension at rear gives better comfort to the commuters.
Ride And Handling
The 125 cc engine's power is transmitted to the wheels through 5 speed transmission. The power unit is assembled on a semi double cradle frame which minimizes transfer of vibration from this unit to the rider. The front wheel is supported by a telescopic fork and the rear end it is supported by nitrox monoshock suspension. This suspension uses a gas which is mixture of nitrogen and oxygen to absorb energy released from shocks and damps the vibrations of the mono spring. The 200 mm petal disc on the front makes way for efficient braking because of its heat dissipation property. The tires are designed with speed rating of 150 km/hr. The bike has a 10 litre fuel tank which makes it suitable for traveling longer distances. All the features mentioned above with a light weight body combine to give a good riding experience with better performance and better control of the bike.
