Back in May, we’d speculated that the F150 would be hitting showrooms by monsoon this year. It’s official now, Bajaj Auto will be launching the new Discover F150 and the 150S in India on August 11.
The Discover 150S, meanwhile, is the naked version of the F150. While its looks are typical of the new Discover range of motorcycles, the exception here is the all-black theme used by Bajaj for this one. It shares its cycle parts with the aforementioned F150 and comes with a wider rear tyre. The 150S, though, will be available in two variants – one with a drum brake in the front and the other with a disc.
On the engine front, the new Discover F150 and 150S come with a new 150cc four-valve DTS-i motor which is expected to make around 14PS of power. Both the motorcycles will sport five-speed gearboxes.
Bajaj will be positioning these two motorcycles below the Pulsar 150. The F150 and 150S will take the place of the now discontinued Discover 125ST. We expect the 150S to be priced at Rs 60,000, while the F150 will be costing Rs 7,000 more. We’ll be here to bring you more news of the launch on August 11.
