Pitted against Honda CB Shine, Hero Glamour and Hero Passion Pro in domestic markets, Bajaj Auto hopes to expand its current market share of 22% with this new offering. Last month saw Bajaj Auto post a decline of 6% in domestic sales during which time the company sold a total of 273,323 units as against 291,297 units in February 2013.
Commenting on the launch K Srinivas, President – Motorcycle Business, said, “Many consumersare tired of the regular commuter bikes which offer only around 8 Ps Power. They would ideally wish to upgrade to sportier, attractive bikes with superior technology and features. However barriers such as price and mileage deter them to move on to the 125cc segment. The all new Discover 125 offers equivalent mileage of a 100cc and comes with exciting performance and features all at an attractive price. We want the Indian commuter to live life to the fullest and “Jiyo Dana-Dan.”
It will be available in six colours – Electron Blue, Wine Red, Charcoal Magenta, Charcoal Green, Silver Blue, Silver Gold.
