New Delhi: The Discover 125 Sports Tourer(ST), a product from the stables of two- and three-wheeler manufacturer Bajaj Auto was launched on Monday. It will available in the market from the second half of June.
The company did not disclose the price of the bike, powered by Bajaj's patented "DTS-iTwin Spark" technology.
