The Discover was the second Bajaj bike (After the Pulsar segment) to come with the six spoke alloys and the patented "exhaus-tec"—basically a resonator that boosts torque at lower rpms. It also employed the Bajaj trademark "dts-i" digital twin spark ignition technology used in the Bajaj Pulsar 150 and 180 dts-i s. At launch, three versions were available:
*Round headlamp,spoke wheels,drum brake

It was revamped with new graphics, black grab-rail, sns(spring in spring) suspension, 130 mm drum brakes, six spoke alloys as standard, and some engine tweaks predominantly aimed at reducing friction and combustion roar.
