The Discover 125 motorcycles are available in three new attractive decals (blue, red, and green), with even the alloy wheels of are embellished with similarly colored stickers adding to its dashing image.
Commenting on Discover 125 launch Lakmal de Silva, General Manager (Vehicle Sales) DPMC said, “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Ministry of Industries and the government for introducing an SOP to protect the industry while making new vehicles available to the public. This is the second bike we launched under the SOP, and we will continue to do so with other Bajaj bikes as well.”
He stated that the new bike was available at DPMC showrooms and its dealers island wide.
In 2022, after a break of nearly three years due to import restrictions, DPMC reintroduced the brand-new Bajaj CT100 as the first bike to be launched under the government-introduced SOP. Both the Bajaj CT100 and Bajaj Discover 125 motorcycles are assembled at DPMC’S state-of-theart Manufacturing Complex located in Ranna, in the Hambantota District, with the addition of locally manufactured components that have been tested and approved by Bajaj.
