The much delayed Mahindra Mojo will be launched on October 16 at a starting price of Rs 1.62 lk ex-showroom, Mumbai. Along with the bike, customers will get Mojo branded helmet and a riding jacket. The company is also offering a 5-year warranty instead of the standard 2 years offered by all manufacturers. The company also entices customers with a 2-day all expenses riding trip to Lavasa on the outskirts of Pune.
Mahindra Mojo will be powered by a single cylinder, four stroke, 292 cc, liquid cooled engine. This four valve engine will drive the bike to a maximum power of 27 BHP and 3 Kgm of torque. There will be two ( one into two) exhausts on the either sides of Mojo. The use of mono shock and upside down front forks will give the bike stability and a comfortable ride. Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires will help the bike grip better, which will come as standard.
To add more comfort to the bike the handle bars and foot pegs are placed to give the rider an upright posture. Considering the tremendous power and stability of the bike good braking system had to be considered, having these things considered the Mahindra Mojo is equipped with a 320 mm disc up front and 240 mm disc at the rear. Mojo would have a top-speed of 165 km/h, with fuel efficiency in the range of 30-35 km/l
Mojo has competition from no less than 6 bikes in terms of cubic capacity: KTM Duke 390, RC390, Benelli 300 TNT, Kawasaki Ninja 300, Honda CBR 250R, Yamaha R3. Agreed that only Honda CBR 250R and KTM Duke 390 are in the same price range as Mojo. The Duke 390 which would be just about Rs 10,000 expensive on-road might be a major drawback on the Mahindra Mojo pricing. The upcoming Pulsar 400 might be priced in the same price range which could be a big problem in the days to come.
