Jackie Chan? 20 crores? Gosh, how many Rs.40000 (assumed price) bikes would they have to sell just to recover that amount?

The discover will come in three variants

the base model will be sporting a round headlamp, the nxt one a fairing & the top model will sport mag wheels. Bajaj is expecting it to be the next best seller like the pulsar twins & yes the the twins the Discover also sports a 125cc DTSi engine, here's a few pic

Nothing's wrong, except for the fact that it sounds a bit wierd and i'm surprised, i wouldn't have been this surprised if he had done ads for Honda or some other more popular company in the world market.
Hmmmm... maybe Bajaj is following the Idea Cellular way of advertising.

bajaj is going the herohonda way......!

instead of paying him 20 crores, they could have very well,reduced the price of the bike by atleast a 1000, think of more sales that would generate

or atleast do some "maska-butter" who payed close to 1 lacfor they flagship variant,which is soon gonna be some where around 75 otr

even hh gave kari owners free remote start systems during thier price reduction for exsiting kari owners.
