Default Which bike? Need to change discover with lighter bike

I am considering bikes weighing around 110 kgs and 100 cc is pefectly fine with me I need reasoble power and good fuel economy since I drive 50+ km

Please help me I am totally confused

Better look for Bajaj CT 100 or even TVS Victor (very comfortable bike)
but I don't have any idea about weight.

If you are not to keen on getting geared vehicle then give Honda Activa/Dio a thought.
I have Dio & believe me in Pune traffic it is a bliss to ride non-geared two wheeler
Also being 4 stroke they return decent FE

I don't know if the Bajaj BYK is still made, but its extremely light and manueverable compared to any other bike..

In the 100cc segment choose between TVS Centra & HH Splendor+.
Both these bikes weigh around 110 kgs and give good mileage.

Customer survey report:

If you are looking for 125cc, then check out TVS Victor GLX
and HH Glamour... These bikes are about 15-20 kg heavier than
the 100cc models....

Review on HH Glamour - http://www.indiabike.com/infobank/glamour/glamour.htm

Guess Centra/Splendor+ would be best bet for you.

Unbelievable!

You sold off a gem of a machine that is the discover and bought a Super splendour!!! All in a few month's time!

The disco very stable compared to any 100cc bike and more stable than any 125cc (cept maybe, the fazer). The getting used to you were talking about, would've happened if you gave it time, coz in my personal opnion you've done something stupid. No offence, it's still your decision and your money

Default Discovery Advice

Guys need advice... Have a Discovery 125 which is used rarely. Feel the clutch and brake lever to be too far in front from the handlebar and this sorta makes it a bit too uncomfortable for me. Could you guys suggest a change in the levers from some other bike onto the discovery to solve this problem. This has been felt by a few other friends who have used this bike too.
