“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Bajaj Discover 150

Bajaj Auto Ltd. yesterday launched a new variant of the Bajaj Discover series - the Bajaj Discover 150. Well the news was out yesterday only, I was waiting for the Bajaj Official Site to come up with the details.


So, now basically the Bajaj Stables has two 150cc Horses - the Bajaj Pulsar 150 and Bajaj Discover 150. I think it's the first time in Bajaj in the 150cc category, that Bajaj has two bikes in this category, with the only difference that the Discover is DTS-Si engine and the Pulsar 150 is a DTS-i engine. So, let's see how these two stand up infront of each other - 


So, from the above comparison it's clear that the Bajaj Discover 150 (rather 145cc) is definitely not a performance machine. It's more a commuter with a bit more tang!! Much like the Achiever for the Hero Honda.

But at the same time, there is one aspect of the bike, which can easily leave the Pulsar 150 surprised!! At an astounding 22Kg lower weight than the Pulsar 150, the Discover 150 can easily zip past the Pulsar 150 at will and also, that the max torque 12.75 Nm coming @ 5500 rpms means that the Torque band is much much more usable in city riding conditions, which clearly marks it more apt for city riding. Also, the absence of any kind of contemporary styling on the bike also makes the message clear that it's more for the Non-Enthusiast Commuter class.

One thing in the bike which I think shouldn't have been included is the(what should I call it??) - Disk Brake Fender!!



I mean who said the Bajaj designers that this is gonna look cool on the bike!!

Well apart from this, the bike is pretty descent Discover package and should do well with the commuter folks and on top of that Rs 46,000 ex-showroom in Delhi... well this 150cc might give a competition for market to even a 100cc!! :)
