Discover 150 vs Unicorn vs SZ vs Achiever: SPECS COMPARO

We compared the new Discover 150S and 150F price-wise with the Hero Achiever, Honda CB Unicorn and Yamaha SZ a few days back. That concluded that even the most expensive Discover is almost cheaper than all the other entry 150cc bikes we have talked about earlier.


However, on the one hand the Discover 150s are new and, therefore, yet to prove their worth. The other three bikes have been around for quite some time now and have established themselves as fine products. But is it just the price that Bajaj is banking on or have they loaded their products with enough oomph to create ruckus in the segment..? Let’s take a look…

The first thing that you would have probably noticed is that despite displacing the least cubes amongst this lot, it is the Discover’s engine that makes the most power. Yamaha’s SZ is the least powerful in this list. In terms of torque, all the bikes are evenly matched but SZ starts churning it the earliest and Discovers the last!

All the four bikes here come with five-speed gearboxes but it’s only the Discover that doesn’t come with the universal one down four up pattern.

Apart from being the most powerful, new Discovers are also the lightest and shortest in class which provides them fantastic power to weight ratio as well as make them great city runabouts. In terms of wheelbase, Unicorn scores the brownies with Achiever having the smallest length.

The biggest shortcoming Discover faces is its smallest fuel tank with a capacity of only 10 liters. At 14 liters, SZ has the largest tank capacity. However, owing to lesser weight and claimed high fuel efficiency, we expect it to possess almost a similar travel range as the others.

The 80/100 section front tyre is also the widest and comes with a monoshock, Unicorn being the only other motorcycle to sport one here. However, Unicorn is significantly costlier than the Bajaj.
