Pune/New Delhi: Two- and three-wheeler maker Bajaj Auto on Monday launched its 100 cc motorcycle Discover 100T priced at Rs 50,500 (ex-showroom New Delhi).

"The all-new Discover 100T delivers the power of a 125cc with the economy of a 100cc to bring in the joy of riding to this segment," said K Srinivas, president, motorcycle business, Bajaj Auto."While 100cc bikes do offer good mileage, their style, features and performance leave a lot to be desired.

The steady growth of the more expensive 100cc bikes at the cost of the cheaper models is a clear evidence of this."According to the company, the new bike is powered by a patented four-valve DTS-i technology engine which delivers 10.2 Ps of power and a fuel efficiency of 87 km per litre.

The engine is also coupled with five-speed gear box and auto choke for easy start in all weather conditions. Goldman Sachs in a January 4 report included Bajaj Auto in its Asia-Pacific "growth recovery" group of stocks that are expected to see favourable growth and valuations in 2013.
