Bajaj Auto is most likely to discontinue the Discover 150 from their two wheeler line up. Bajaj had previously launched the Discover in the form of 150F and the 150S. Witnessing a very negative sales response from this 150cc commuter, Bajaj is likely to discontinue the Discover 150 and bring in fresh motorcycles to the market.
Bajaj recently launched the V12 under the category of the V motorcycle from Bajaj. V motorcycles are special because they have a part of them made up of the metal dismantled from India’s first aircraft carrier, INS Vikrant. Bajaj has admitted that the introduction of too many models have resulted in drop of sales.

The Discover 150 is powered by a 144.8cc single cylinder DTS-i engine making 14.03bhp with 12.75Nm of torque which is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. This motorcycle also gets ExhausTEC engine technology. We mainly feel that the Discover couldn’t keep up to its competitors like the Yamaha FZ, Gixxer 150 and the Honda Hornet.
