    The discover 125 is a good bike. If you don't trust it, then go for the glamour. The new 125 cc bike from TVS is worth a look.

    Giving details about both the bikes, make your pick

    Bajaj XCD

    The Bajaj XCD DTS-Si 125 cc is easy to control, easy on the pocket, and a good choice for a 125 cc motorbike. The 125 mm telescopic front suspension combined with the swing arm with 5-step adjustable SNS suspension at the rear provides smooth and comfortable rides; while alloy wheel rims add flamboyance to the strong diamond frame body. The added engine power gives the Bajaj XCD DTS-Si 125 cc has a greater performance edge over 125 cc alternatives. The new technology allows better fuel combustion and gives a mileage of 109 kmpl.
