100cc Indian Motorcycles Comparison – The Clash Of The Commuters!

by atul on December 20, 2010

Motorcycles with engine displacement of 100cc or lower are pure commuter bikes. These bikes are preferred when it comes to riding in city traffic across busy lanes. These commuters are suited to people who prefer fuel efficiency, reliability and durability over power and torque. Commuters are good for day to day activities especially for collage and officers goers.

But do not worry; we are not talking about scooters, only motorcycles will be compared in this review. We will review 6 brightest stars of this category, and will attempt to bring out their strong and weak points.

Our contestants are:

  1. Bajaj Discover 100
  2. Bajaj Platina 100
  3. Hero Honda Passion Plus
  4. Hero Honda Splendor Plus
  5. Yamaha Crux and finally
  6. Mahindra Stallio

Lets jump in!

Bajaj Discover DTS-Si 100.

Discover 100cc is positioned by the company as a sporty touring commuter that is good from the any aspect Strongest points of this bike are fuel efficiency and premium equipment, which you wouldn’t expect from a low-priced commuter bike.. Bajaj probably made one of the most successful commuters in Indian market.

Discover has everything a biker needs apart from fuel efficiency and reliability like wide optoprism headlamp with stylish black tinted windscreen, racing style wheel stripes, large and bulky fuel tank with awesome paintings gives good overall impression. LED tail light s also adds a lot to the looks of the bike. For the first time, a 100cc commuter was installed with 5-speed gearbox, LED taillights and Nitrox suspension.

The bike has got amazing specs to that include a 94.38cc engine (might look a bit of weakling on paper, but don’t let it confuse you) , 7.5 Bhp of power @ 7500 rpm and 7.85 Nm @ 5000 rpm .Discover can easily attain an speed of 93-95 Km/Ph without any trouble. As it is a commuter, it takes a time of about 8.5 seconds to accelerate to 60 Kmph, which is not at all bad for a commuter.

Most of us look for mileage in a bike and Discover doesn’t disappoint us.. According to ARAI IDC (Indian Driving Cycle) it gives unbelievable figure of 89kmpl. They said that under standard conditions it should give around 125kmpl! One can expect it to give a mileage around 75 – 80Kmpl. Other eye catching features of the bike include; powerful suspension, comfortable seating and large wheel base that helps to maintain grip and stability on road. Discover comes with an On Road price tag of 46,000-47,000 while the Ex-Showroom price stands at 41,000.

Pros: Discover has Best mileage in 100cc segment and Sports Great stability, amazing suspension. Electric start, LED taillight, good 5-speed gearbox, maintenance free battery, Comfortable seat and affordable price.

Cons: Some people don’t like styling; also engine could use a bit more power. There were complains about tyre quality, common maintenance problems after few years of riding.

Bajaj Platina DTS-Si 100cc

Bajaj produces another commuter called the Platina DTS-Si. To begin with, Platina has Very good mileage accompanied by a really affordable price. It is a predecessor of Discover 100cc, and while equipment of this bike can’t be compared with progressive technology of Discover, it has its own benefits.

Stylish and sleek looks of Bajaj Platina are very likeable. If you choose platinum silver color with chrome you will always stand apart, even in huge variety of bikes available today. The bike’s specifications are really good with four stroke 99.27cc engine produces which produces 8.2bhp@7500rpm and maximum torque of 8.05Nm@4500rpm. The pick up is respectable, and low end torque is very handy, thanks to the world class ExhausTEC system. Platina is few kilograms lighter then Discover.

Bajaj Platina is capable of reaching 98km/h (however, some people report 93km/h at max, but it solely depends on your weight), and sprint from 0 to 60km/h could be done in 8.5 seconds. In addition there are no excessive vibrations in any rmp’s. Bajaj Platina is equipped with oil indicator, Telescopic front suspension has travel of 125 mm and the rear suspension (SNS) has the longest travel in its class – 100mm. It offers quite a plush ride without sacrificing handling. The commuter gives out a mileage of nearly 80kmpl, and it is very close to Discover’s results. The price for it is only Rs. 33,900 in ex-showroom, and on road price is Rs. 37,215. Platina won the “2007 NDTV Profit Bike India” – bike of the year award, for the 100 cc class.

Pros: Very good mileage, great looks if color is black or silver. Neat ride comfort and best power/torque output in its class.

Cons: Looks are not impressive especially the blue or red base colors, brakes are too soft and there is no electric start. The plastic styling gets scratched easily, because its wrongly placed with maintenance problems as well.

Hero Honda Passion Pro

The next commuter on our list is Hero Honda Passion Pro. This commuter has a Very stylish body with wide variety of color options. It was released as the upgraded design version of basic Hero Honda Passion with a lot of upgraded features. This bike has been introduced for individuals looking for incredibly designed bike with solid performance and mileage figures.

Passion Pro incorporates a lot of styling features like 2-tone colors, body colored rear view mirrors, new multi-reflector headlamp and the new dials in the instrument panel. It comes with 6 variants of multicolor design. Passion plus is also capable of producing just enough power and torque. It can produce a 7.4bhp at 8000 rpm, and peak torque of 7.95Nm was clocked at 5000 rpm. While torque is more than acceptable with engine size of only 97.2 cc, power is on the low side. Because there is not much power, maximum speed of Passion pro is around 85km/h and acceleration isn’t rapid.

Hero Honda Passion pro is equipped with robust 18 inch Dunlop, Srichakra MRF tyres, which provide the rider with adequate grip even on the slippery surfaces. In addition, Passion is very comfortable and stable bike, most likely you will not get back pain even from continuous riding. The tubular double cradle chassis make this bike very dynamic and maneuverable. One can expect to get nearly 65-70kmpl from this motorcycle. The bike is priced 50,000 on Road with an Ex-showroom price of 44,000.

Pros: Best looking bike in 100cc segment, low maintenance, decent reliability, cool colored dials and good resale value. Also it is very comfortable and handling is nice.

Cons: Weak engine and it heats up fast. Mileage may significantly drop while driving at higher speeds of more than 65 Km.

Hero Honda Splendor Plus

Next bike on our list is the Hero Honda Splendor Plus. Best thing about Splendor plus is its comfort and very low maintenance costs. Also, Splendor Plus is one of the largest selling bikes in India. Splendor plus is the improved model of old basic splendor by Hero Honda.

Lets peep in to the specs of Splendor Plus. First of all, styling is very classy because it looks like it came straight from 80’s. Splendor Plus sports front and tail lamps (rectangular) and there are no alloy wheels (okay, there is an option, but they don’t really fit with overall design), and from the sides it isn’t sporty at all. Secondly, engine is the same (97.2cc) as on the Passion plus, so there are no major differences in performance. But because Splendor is much lighter than the Passion, it can achieve 90km/h speeds while achieving a speed of 60Km in just 8.6 secs.

This commuter is comfortable both with regards of handling and seating. The bike is spacious and can easily accommodate two people with all due comforts. Stability could be a bit of concern for this bike because wheelbase is 1230mm and the tyres aren’t too in synchronization with the road. One can even notice a lack in Handling. The commuter sports a Suspension that features standard telescopic fork with hydraulic shock absorbers at the front and the rear; one is swing arm with hydraulic shock absorbers. This bike gives a mileage of 65-75kmpl, and figures are a bit higher than that of Passion Plus. The bike comes at an Ex-Showroom price of 40,000 and an on road price of 45,000.


  • High reliability and low maintenance.
  • Good resale value
  • Great comfort level


  • All coloring variants aren’t really that good
  • Styling is seriously outdated (Retro lovers will love it)
  • Poor handling and no electric start option.

Yamaha Crux

Yamaha Crux is the next commuter we are going to apprise. The bike is cheaply priced and has a good engine too. Moreover the bike is durable and is very comfortable too. Yamaha’s designers have chosen very conservative approach, and “duplicated” motorcycle designs from the past. Crux has very familiar, big round headlamp and absence of front fairing and the front mudguard is chromed. This bike comes in only two color variants (guess its not a lot to choose from). Crux has got a good four stroke single cylinder 106cc engine that provides the bike with solid 7.6bhp @7500 rpm and peak torque is 7.85Nm @6000 rpm.

Yamaha Crux can run on a Maximum speed of 91-93km/h. Yamaha Crux lacks acceleration and it takes over 9.1 secs to go from 0 to 60Kmph because transmission is very smooth, and gear ratios aren’t good for rapid acceleration. Crux e=was made primarily for comfort rather than power and speed.

This commuter has quite good wheels and tyres (18” 4 PR and 6 PR), and has only multi-spoke rim that is considered one of the best in the industry due to its low maintenance and flexibility. As far as the comfort is concerned, crux scores above average because the seat is quiet big. The bike also has satisfactory handling and also remains stable. Crux has conventional wheelbase of 1260mm and as I already mentioned tyre quality is decent. Mixed mileage is around 60-66kmpl. Price is very affordable – only Rs.32, 000 for ex-showroom and on road price is approximately Rs. 36000.


  • Awesome price
  • Great reliability
  • Low maintenance
  • Easy Riding
  • Solid engine and reasonable pick up
  • Good resale value

Cons: It looks like an old moped from 1980’s, and has only two color variants to choose from. Mileage is not very impressive; there are few bikes in 125cc class that are more economical. Lack of technology, no electric start, doesn’t use an efficient braking system.

Mahindra Stallio

Mahindra Stalio is the next bike in the segment that is worth reviewing. The strength of this bike is design and technology it uses. The tag line defines the bike as “World class Italian design, raw power, adrenaline and speed.” Mahindra Stallio has its special sleek, sporty contours and designs from Italy. It is very distinctive from the other bikes, and its multi-reflector headlamp certainly grabs attention. The digital display looks fantastic; it is first bike from the segment that is equipped with such high-end technology.

Mahindra Stallio has got a 106.7cc engine displacement and falls under a partial 110cc class bike but we thought that it would be fun comparing it with 100cc commuters. Surprisingly, power output isn’t that high, just 7.24bhp @ 7500 rpm and maximum torque is 8.0 Nm @ 5500 rpm. There are no exact numbers (well no any numbers for that matter) of performance but based on power and weight ratio one can roughly calculate the results. Power output is lower than on few bikes we already discussed, and also the bike weighs at –126kg (kerb weight). There is no way that this machine could go faster than 85-87km/h even if it had perfect wheels and aerodynamics the speed wouldn’t go till 92 Kmph.

These are somewhat disappointing figures for a 110cc bike. . However, Stallio has advanced telescopic hydraulic-damped front suspension and 5-step adjustable coiled hydraulic-damped rear suspension. In addition, Stallio offers commendable degree of comfort for both rider and passenger while the Fuel efficiency stands at 55-65kmpl (mixed results). One can acquire this bike with cast alloy wheels, self start and fully digital console for around Rs. 44,000 (ex-showroom) and Rs. 49,000 for on road price.


  • Equipped with high-technology
  • Fully digital display has speedo
  • Fuel gauge, tachometer, odometer, trip meter and a clock with a 4-year or 80,000 km warranty
  • Design is pretty stylish and the bike is well balanced


  • No disc brakes,
  • Low fuel efficiency & weak engine (for 110cc)
  • Price could be a bit lower.


Its now time that we rank these commuters and select the best out of them. The rankings are based on fuel efficiency, performance, maintenance & reliability, price, comfort and the looks. We will also intend to count the riders point of view while ranking these 6 commuters. We will attempt to categorize our ranking system in each and every aspect, so lets get started.

Fuel Efficiency: Lets see the performances of the 6 commuters listed above as regards fuel efficiency.

Price: Now let us find out how they stand as regards price.

Comfort: lets find out which commuter excels when it comes to comfort.

Performance: Performance is the most important aspects of a bike. Let us find out  how these 6 commuters score as regards performance.

Maintenance&Reliability: Leta see the rankings with respect to maintenance and reliability.

Design: The most important thing is the Design. Lets assess the rankings as per the design of each of the six commuters.

Based on the above results we can come to the following conclusion;

  • Bajaj Discover DTS-Si 100cc is most economical bike
  • Hero Honda Passion Pro has best design and styling, and also is most comfortable
  • Yamaha Crux is the cheapest bike
  • Bajaj Platina DTS-Si 100cc is the best performer
  • Hero Honda Splendor Plus is most reliable and low on operating costs

Bajaj Discover DTS-Si 100cc looks like the overall winner!

This is what final results look like:

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed my in-depth analysis of these 6 bikes from 100cc segment! Please leave comments.

Purposely forgot HONDA CB Twister ? :O


Shanker December 20, 2010 at 9:10 am

Wow…this is such a great comparison….tnx to the author and the editor:)


Rancho December 20, 2010 at 9:18 am

CB Twister is a must compare here..
It excels in style, performance and mileage for sure in 100cc segment


Inder December 20, 2010 at 9:18 am

I purchased this Discover DTS-si and within first 4 months the clutch was gone. After another 4 months the piston and engine head gone. Bike was eating engine oil from the first month and the servicing guys was not able to find the what is the problem. They didn’t even told me that my bike is eating up engine oil After the piston and head ruined, i have to refill the engine oil after every 10 days. Imagine guys! After every 10 days I have to spend 230 rs. for Castrol Active 1 Ltr bottle. And when 10 months completes, one day the bike suddenly shut off while I was going to office.

In this time period i never pushed my bike above 60. I strictly follow the running-in period guidelines. Never try to do that 0-60 thing. Never expect more than my bike can give me. As I am not a new rider. I am riding bikes from last 5 years. But this Discover ruined my faith in Bajaj. I’ll never purchase Bajaj now onwards.

The i sold the Discover and purchased Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler. True Legend! It’s giving me comfort, performance, 55kmpl mileage, reliability and of-course quality which anyone can feel while driving the Honda bike.

I have never driven TVS, Mahindra or Hero Honda bikes so I will not comment on that, but my relatives has two Passion Plus bikes and they are very happy with them! Even if they purchased the used Passion Plus bikes, still they didn’t find any problem in there bikes.

Happy riding dudes.


Nagamani December 20, 2010 at 9:21 am

where’s Honda Twister????


Aditya December 20, 2010 at 10:12 am

Where is the Twister??? That also qualifies as a 100cc “commuter” bike…

Also, the Yamaha Crux is virtually non existent… The Yamaha Alba would have been a more practical choice since it is more commonly found now…

The TVS Jive is also missing…

A very biased shootout if you ask me… Too many missing bikes and too many flaws…


Imaya December 20, 2010 at 10:46 am

Missed out TVS Star City 110.


Susanta December 20, 2010 at 11:06 am

Is it Passion Plus or Pro? Sometimes it is written plus and some other time it is pro.Passion plus and pro are having different economy and styling.


AVS December 20, 2010 at 11:40 am

You must also add Honda twister because of its high reliability and performance. No other bikes at the range of 100cc can’t beat its performance. It shows a huge demand from the Indian market. Only drawback in Twister is its narrow tyres. No other weaknesses. With a slashing 9 Bhp engine and styling it beats all others in refinement also.

Yamaha crux seems to be out of Market as they disappear like dinosaurs. Yamaha libero is the best choice in their segment. Bajaj Platina and ct100 are sort of bikes with poor reliability and also cause severe backpain, But they give mileage of 80 Kmpl at the first 10,000 Kms after that they shows poor and utter performance, as all knows.

Passion pro is also a good commuter bike, with reliable and performance.


Manish December 20, 2010 at 11:56 am

Please post the similar comparison for 150CC as well. “Handling or Ride Quality Or Performance” parameter is missing only, Please include Handling parameter in 150CC.



Purushoth December 20, 2010 at 1:15 pm

Ya.. i too expected CB Twister under this comparison.


sathyanarayanan December 20, 2010 at 2:04 pm

Where’s Honda Twister? Where’s TVS star city, sport and Jive? Where is yamaha alba, YBR? They are also 100cc bikes…. yamaha crux is outdated one.. Looks like review is biased. And splendor has poor handling? I dont think so…..


fas December 20, 2010 at 4:04 pm

How can the Twister be left out, it was the MOTY of 2010.


Balachander Ganesan December 20, 2010 at 7:12 pm

You people should learn to do comparison tests properly.

Whenever you do comparison you should take a bike from each popular manufacturer.

Why the hell you missed out TVS star’s , it is one of the largest selling and rightly priced bike. BTW, I don’t own a TVS star bike.

I’m not interested in reading this article because you people paid less attention to the subject itself.


Aleksejs Zuravlovs December 22, 2010 at 2:20 am

Sorry, Ganesan I was planning to review every 100cc bike, including TVS company too, but I was given 6 bikes from all that 100cc list, so sorry, I couldn’t write about others.


Balachander Ganesan December 23, 2010 at 8:21 pm

Oh, so you are limited by the number.

Anyway the reason for my comment was Mahindra just now entered the bike segment and no big success. So, I couldn’t understand why you picked Stallio instead of TVS star.

Aditya December 21, 2010 at 1:53 am

People, the comparisons that you read about are for your reading pleasure and not to be judged on.
If you are the one who is to choose between these bikes then may be it would help
you to choose better. Biased or unbiased it did provide you the reading pleasure did it not.
Then do not judge an article, You can provide your suggestions but do not criticise. Among the
comments I did not read 1 constructive criticism.
It was a nice article and I enjoyed reading it. Even thought CB twister was not included, if it was
then the competition would have been weak..as it was awarded the bike of the yr 2011 it has already
proven itself. And as for Star City…. the very reason is that it is a 110 cc Bike and not 100 cc. Also the above bikes come in a segment so they can be compared.
I would look forward to more articles like these in the future. May be for 125 cc, 150 cc.


Aleksejs Zuravlovs December 22, 2010 at 2:24 am

Wow, thanks a lot! I was disappointed by comments, but your comment was really warming :)


alex January 5, 2011 at 11:29 pm

Discover was 94 cc and crux was 106 cc, which will not come into 100 cc segment according to your words? a big biased review missing/ignoring tvs and honda’s largest selling bikes! simply because star is 110 cc and same with twister.. lol


Mani January 27, 2012 at 11:13 am

As you said, well tvs starcity come under 110 cc.. but tvs sport coming with 100cc only.. then why not this… and Mr.ganesan said exactly, based on what u taken mahindra stallio, a failure model and still having lot of trouble…honda and tvs both r well dominating indian 2-wheeler markets..

Mr.Aleksejs Zuravlovs – well try, and pls choose right products for comparisions in nxt time..


Suresh December 21, 2010 at 3:01 pm

I appreciate your effort in studying all these bikes and helping us.. Thanks editor!


devang sinha December 21, 2010 at 8:35 pm

how can u miss out hondao twister. Its currently the best 100 cc byk. It is also the byk of yr 2010. Yamaha crux is almost extint lyk dinos. Yamaha alba wud be a better choice. Also, bajaj byks are highly unreliable. U can never trust them. In a first few yrs, they run lyk lions bt after sum tym , they sho their tru colors. Ur selection of bajaj discover as the best 100cc byk is truly questionable and biased. Overall, i wud rate this article as highly biased and disappointing.


Aleksejs Zuravlovs December 22, 2010 at 2:27 am

Biased? Did you saw results for Bajaj reliability? They got lowest results… But in other areas they was clearly better, people judged them not me.


alex January 5, 2011 at 11:35 pm

Your choice of discover was good. Ofcourse its best value for money! But how come you choose crux leaving alba and ybr110 apart? isnt it biased? styling, comfort and handlign everything gets changed form crux to alba or say ybr110. Where are the tvs star city/sport and jive variants, tvs star 110 has highest fuel tank and widest seats offering great comfort than every other bike in the segment. Isnt it biased? how come u choose wrong yamaha? if you are limited with 6 bikes, you choose platina whoose production will be stopped sooner or later coz a better offering discover is from same stable!

Mani January 27, 2012 at 11:16 am

article is well biased… no more reasons to convince readers…

raja December 21, 2010 at 9:25 pm

reliablity of bajaj bikes is not a problem.i have a discover 112 from 2004, its running over 60000 km.apart from oil and regular service, i never changed anything .


NITIN December 21, 2010 at 9:49 pm

Whoever be the manufacturer, 100 cc 4 stroke motor cycles are always pocket friendly with their fuel consumption and maintenance. Even they can cruise at 80 kmph speed. All these characteristics make them perfect for Indian roads and customers, who use bikes for daily transportation and expects less maintenance.


NITIN December 21, 2010 at 9:53 pm

My picks are Hero Honda passion pro and Honda CB twister as these bikes also got good looks in addition. TVS star city could have been included for its 70 kmpl fuel efficiency, big 16 litre fuel tank, good illuminating head light and comfortable seating position. Only con is TVS trademark vibrations !!!


bikeshunt.com December 21, 2010 at 11:29 pm

now those bikes are better known as best bike of yesterday. they were good in their time now its time for bikes as honda cbr250r, ninja 250r etc.


Aleksejs Zuravlovs December 22, 2010 at 2:30 am

I forgot… Please tell what should be improved, specific areas, not just say that whole article sucks.. I need to know what exactly could be improved, and why.


Sathyanarayanan N December 22, 2010 at 12:46 pm

Hi Alex,

Your comparison of bikes are very good. Only thing is you have left the honda twister. If u have included it, it will be the winner. And my opinion is i judge bikes by reliability and long term performance. And so i thought Hero honda splendor would be the overall winner. But to my surprise, it is Discover.. Keep up your good work and post many comparisons in this site….


NITIN December 22, 2010 at 5:20 pm

@Aleksejs Zuravlovs, Your review is nice. Deepak already said that twister will be compared with this review’s best bike and the reason given by him is apt. My suggestion is, also consider reliability as judgment factor. In India, it matters most and thats why hero honda is king of the 100 cc segment.

Rehman October 30, 2011 at 9:04 pm

Criticizing is Very easy and Hence any tom Dick and Harry can do that. It is a Great effort from you Aleksejs. Keep up the Good work.


uday December 22, 2010 at 8:52 am

Raj comparison is good but next time comprae 90 to130cc people will like it coz all these segments are fuel efficiant and public want to same compare in that


vasudeva December 22, 2010 at 9:05 am

really good article u could have included honda cb twister,star city for comparison.I have Discover DTSI run almost 20000 in 10 months took 780km long ride at a strech.Didnt noticed any problems apart from chain spocket.use to drive 40-60km ph getting good mileage.Inder u could have launched a complaint or claimed 2 year warrnty for default product u got it i think its a defect product.Normally discover engines willnt have any engine problems unless if you hadnt checked engine oil perfect.Also its recomend to change enjine oil every 3000 km.Believe me being a rider for last 15 years i didnt had any problems with bajaj(4s,CT100&discover).Even TVS star city is also a good bike apart from its vibrations at high speeds


Gaurav December 22, 2010 at 9:29 am

Nice article. & I would also love to see a comparison of bikes of higher displacement…


yuvraj December 22, 2010 at 9:33 am

heyyyyyyyy, such a good article really its a very help full and true,
because i have purchasing a Bajaj Discover 100 cc .
thank u


Siddhesh Hande December 22, 2010 at 9:39 am

Siddhesh Hande December 22, 2010 at 9:41 am

Orijit December 23, 2010 at 5:49 am

when did bajaj engine become reliable? Or is it only the pulsar people cry foul about? The engine of passion pro heats up fast and not in splendor? Also, Passion Pro can go more than 85 kmph.


*LoneWolf* December 2, 2011 at 9:02 am

Sorry mate. Pro’s top speed is less then splendor. I checked it at full throttle, mine’s going 90 and splendor overtaked me at 100kmph. You are right about bajaj engine.


Madhavan December 23, 2010 at 11:23 am

hello Sir, there is no DTS-Si 100 CC Platina, Check it out. only XCD, Discover 100CC has DTS-Si Technology. So post info properly


Aleksejs Zuravlovs December 23, 2010 at 1:48 pm

uh oh.. That was 125cc Platina :( You are right, sorry.


Doctor46 December 23, 2010 at 12:32 pm

.You people should be thankful to Aleks for spending his precious time as a freelancer on this site.Just have a look at the spiteful comments earlier on.I think bikeadvice has become a breeding ground for non sense banter whenever a sensitive issue comes forward.Just ignore the earlier comments Aleks.keep Up the good work.We need people like you on tHis site.


Dr.Niladri Shekhar Das December 25, 2010 at 1:32 am

Comparison of 100cc bikes were good.But I also want to know about 125cc and 150cc segments.Reliability is the most important issue here afterall it is ur mode of transportation so it should not fail u anytime.I am looking for best milage,reliability at low cost.


Anil Kumar December 28, 2010 at 12:32 pm

can u do the same comparision with 125 cc bikes. plz Include all bikes


jayaprabhu December 30, 2010 at 11:14 am

freinds i would suggest to buy bajaj discover 100cc.. it s awesome to drive and for fuel efficiency..


kdb February 6, 2011 at 1:51 pm

Excellent and unbiased review.

Hi, why you guys are so confusing, cant you be upright in saying which bike is good if its platina say it directly Platina is better than honda, tvs or whatever and in in particular segment say 100 cc x bike is better than all other 100 cc bikes. what u do is says this bike is better in one department and that bike is better in another department. look if people want to buy something they have a budget and need which decides their purchase you earn money by this kind of gimmicks so u should be fair and straight forward, ya phir haraam ka khane ki aadat hai tumko
twister may be advance bike in below 125 cc bike category but is more expensive compare to 125 cc bike, it had tiny tyre so it is very unsafe bike on high speeds how can it be bike of year?
You pay price of 125cc get 110cc and that too tiny tyre 9 bhp power so enough power for high speed u wanna kill people? with this tiny tyre how it get award?

Discover is on of the useless bike very slim seat for rider feel comfort like TVS 50, I had bad experience while long drive , 5 gear one of mistake and truble, but no vibrate above 60 and good response to thrutle rise

I am looking out to purchase a bike which have fuel efficiency and economical to purchase and maintain.

Passion pro is tuned to give a bit higher power. Passion plus has the standard splendor plus engine. Passion pro is not fuel efficient as the passion plus. Pro gives an average of 55kmpl in normal driving conditions. Even you ride under 50kmph you will get a 65kmpl that’s it. Passion plus comparatively will give 5kms higher mileage then pro in any driving conditions. Pro has a noisier engine, unbalanced power distribution, mediocre mileage. The most appealing feature of passion pro is that awesome comfort. If someone claim passion pro is giving 75kmpl mileage its a Bu** Sh*T. Slap them in the face. Moreover pro has a very bad performance, i don’t need FZ pickup and 110kmph speed. just want to ride comfortably at slow speeds but its seriously lacks in this aspect. With some cheap mods you can improve its performance efficiency to a great deal as i did now.

Why don’t u take the TVS star city & Jive. Pls take this and analysis it. And finally give the result. Pls.

Jitender Kheterpal June 8, 2012 at 12:37 am

i was going for twister now i change my mind for Passion Pro because its give us more milage and confort. i do have an option of Discover 100cc which have decent average with good look. But thinking about other bike like Platena & Twister lookd not secure for future.

Then which bike will be best…Passion Pro or Discover 100cc


A P Singh August 29, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Shoubhik Ghosh March 24, 2013 at 12:26 pm

There is no match for Platina and Splendor. Both bikes are good. Now it is up to the buyer to decide what to take. But AVOID THE PASSION PRO. THE BIKE IS HORRIBLE!


jay kumar meena April 22, 2013 at 10:23 pm

is platina 125cc bike most fuel efficiency in its sagement?


jay kumar meena April 22, 2013 at 10:27 pm

Munish March 22, 2014 at 2:51 pm
