After the glimpse of the Mahindra Mojo at the 2014 Auto Expo, Petrolheads are waiting in anticipation for its launch. The close to production bikes are being tested in and around Pune. With the observed status of the bike it can be confirmed that the bike is good to be launched and it would be scheduled in coming months. Official launch dates are not yet disclosed. The bike, soon to be launched, will be different in looks if compared to the one showcased in 2014 Auto Expo. Only some of the features will be having alterations, rest will remain the same.
The changes in the new Mahindra Mojo, discussed further will be compared with the model showcased in the 2014 Auto Expo. The twin head lamp configuration will now also include DRLs ( Daytime Running Lights). Turn indicators will be bolted right besides the front head lamps, unlike the ones seen on the Mojo 2010 which were integrated in the mirrors. Two golden rods running below the tank will be adding new styling to the Mahindra line up. Right below the bars there are radiator shrouds which look like gills adding a sculpted look to the bike. The tank has knee recesses which go really well with the bike. More features will include LED tail lamps, stepped seats with grab rails for the pillion.
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 25.8 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. 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.
With KTM 390 Duke already in the market Mahindra would have to bring Mojo with a competitive price tag.
