Speaking about the win, Virat Tandon, CEO, Mullen Lintas, says, “Discover is a very important part of the Bajaj Auto portfolio and we are absolutely thrilled to be awarded this business by client. The challenge is to rekindle the love and the following that Discover has had in the past and to grow it multi-fold. It's going to be a fun ride.”

Commenting on the association, Sumeet Narang, vice president – marketing, Bajaj Auto, says in a company statement, “Discover competes in the core commuter segment of prestige 100 and 125cc bikes. The segment is very competitive and marked with different brands offering value, practicality, familiarity or prestige. Discover differentiates itself from all other brands by promising an energised riding experience that rejuvenates life. Presenting this promise in a customer relevant and insightful communication is very critical.”
