Mahinda has confirmed that the 300cc Mojo will be launched on 16th October, almost 5 years after the concept was shown at the 2010 Delhi Auto Expo. The bookings have already begun a few days back with a token amount of Rs 10,000. The bike will be different in looks if compared to the one showcased in 2014 Auto Expo. Only some of the features will be having alterations, the rest will remain the same.
Mahindra Mojo 300 will be powered by a single cylinder, four stroke, 292 cc, liquid cooled engine. Fuel efficiency might be satisfactory due to a fuel injection system. This four valve engine will drive the bike to a maximum power of 27 BHP and 2.5 Kgm of torque. There will be two( one into two) exhausts on the either sides of Mojo. The use of monoshock 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.
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 single front and rear disc brakes.
The Mahindra Mojo is expected to be priced under Rs 2 lakh and the first 100 customers stand to get additional surprise benefits. Mojo has competition from no less than 6 bikes: 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, but we cannot forget the Pulsar RS 400 which will be launched in few months time. The bike has lost almost five years to the competition in which it could have really delivered the much-needed push, Mahindra two-wheeler business required.
