Discover 100cc Vs Passion Pro – Tech Spec shoot out

If it was Splendor before and Passion after, now it’s the Passion Pro that is rolling the numbers high for Hero Honda. Bajaj also had Platina 100cc,  but that was only a moderate hit.

Ever since, Bajaj has Re discovered the Discover brand in the 100cc market, it has indeed become the main competitor for the Passion Pro. We recently gave you a detailed report of Discover 100cc Mileage which was commendable too.

Now we’ll see a report that compares Passion Pro (Here by ‘Pro’) and Discover 100cc (Here by ‘Disc’) to the core.

Engine Capacity

Pro – 97.2cc

Disc – 94.3ccPassionpro

Max Power

Pro – 7.8ps at 7500rpm

Disc – 7.7ps at 7500rpm

Max Torque (More torque at less rpm means more initial pick up)

Pro – 8.04Nm at 4500rpm

Disc – 7.85Nm at 5000rpm

Compression Ratio (Higher compression ratio means more engine power at the time of Ignition and better air – fuel mixture)

Pro – 9.0:1

Disc – 9.8:1

Number of Gears

Pro – 4

Disc – 5

Kerb weight

Pro – 116kgs (kick), 119kgs (self)

Disc – 115kgs

Fuel tank capacity (The only major disappointment  in Discover, but its Mileage slightly overcomes this)

Pro – 12.8 litres (1 litre as reserve)

Disc – 8 litres (2.3 litres as reserve)

Ground Clearance (More ground clearance means better behaviour at speed breakers and Potholes, however 3mm isn’t a big deal)

Pro – 165mm

Disc – 162mm

Wheelbase (More wheelbase means better grip over the road, especially in turns)

Pro – 1235mm

Disc – 1305mm

Mileage

Pro – 71kmpl in heavy city traffic

Disc – 78.04kmpl in similar conditions

Price (check for latest prices; varies by city)

Pro – Rs.44840

Disc – Rs.40840

So if better mileage at lower price is your priority, you choice should be the new Bajaj Discover 100cc DTS-Si. But there are definitely some trade-offs here, lower torque, lower fuel tank capacity but the things that overcome these deficits and make us think Discover is better are the Wheel base and Mileage.

  3. So every one is curious about difference b/w discover 100cc and passion pro.
    Discover is most powerful bike it can easily give mileage 75-80kmpl and it can go on smoothly with 2 members.
    Where as passion it is good in some conditions, but it will not come along discover.

  6. No…..its not correct. I Have a Passion Pro, which gets only 45 – 50 Km/Ltr. Sometimes it will Increase a maximum of 55 Km/Ltr. I am doing all the services through Hero Honda Authorized Service Center. I am using only a minimum speed of 40-50 Km /Hour. Why its happened?

  7. Hi Friends
    Always I like 2 stock bikes yamaha, but the Increase petrol price is not suitable for me to ride a 2 stock bike, So I use HeroHonda Passion PRO. I note the average of PRO is very good 72 kmpl at normal speed 45-55kph and I also test it. But the problem with my Passion PRO is at 60 kph, the bike is start Burbling and get odd sound with tik- tik Etc. So every ride I cannot enjoy with my bike. But Hero honda nam hi kafi hi. I suggest everybody, 100cc bike is not manufacture for speed/Racing. It is only for Home to office and small tours, Every bike gave you some problem and you cannot fulfill it, You can choose Hero Honda Passion PRO for long life and Resale, Bajaj ka scooter acha rehta he.
