The Discover 135cc DTS-i is the Sports version with attractive Nitrox Suspension as well as front disc brakes. Looks wise, the new Discover 135 cc is sexy and hot. It comes in blue, red and black colors.

The bike is a little heavier than its younger brother the Bajaj Discover 125cc but with enhancement in power. The new Discover 135cc has definitely increase in power delivery from the time the throttle is raised and its smooth and the acceleration is about 60 kmph within 4 seconds and that’s cool for a bike of this class. Bajaj Discover 135 cc has valves reworked and the bore is also tweaked such that it displaces 135cc. Know what? Bajaj translates PS directly to horsepower. So, a 13.1 PS in this bike gives 13 bhp. Although, it just a marginal increase with respect to additional cc the end result in terms of power is proportionately greater with a peak torque of about 11.88 Nm relative to the 10.8 of its younger brother at same engine speed.

Aside, there is the DTS ignition, the digital CDI ignition and ExhausTEC technology that translate into enhanced power, performance as well as fuel economy in the new Discover 135 cc version. The exhauster and the heat shield come in matt black finish. With a wider rear tyre, the bike can effectively tackle the crowded street scenario.
