It’s fuel tank is almost similar with Discover 150F where 150F is just added headlight kit and 125 ST is a naked edition. The fuel tank can contains ten litres which is completely alike with 150F. Besides, it’s seating position as well as rear seat is a bit higher which is mostly wanted by the young people but for a bit old people, it seems a problem.

Bajaj Discover 125 ST Rating
The looks of the bike is completely different as well as amazing which a bit comparable with sports category considering seating position and fuel tank design which is fantastic. Besides, like rest bikes of Bajaj, it also has great controlling system and new riders would not face problem to ride it. Being a 125 cc bikes, it’s top speed can reach almost 110 km per hour though according to the news, it would be 105 km per hour. Fuel consuming rate is not significantly high but it should be reduced by the company a little. The price of the bike is bit higher than expected and if we consider the rest same segment bikes in Bangladesh, their price are lower than Discover 125 ST. So, company should notice that fact which could hamper their successful journey.
