Likely to be priced around INR 1.7 lakh.
Motorbeam has posted new information on the Mahindra Mojo, through sharing riding impressions provided by a tester of what is believed to be its showroom version.
The looks are of a proper tourer with an aggressive face. The front gets twin-pod headlamps with LED DRLs and upside down forks up front complementing the monoshock at the back. The side profile gets fibre covers for the radiator with the rear receiving a minimalist design for the LED tail light.
From information that is already available, the Mojo’s dimensions are pegged at 2,100 mm (length), 800 mm (width) and 1,165 mm (height). It has a wheelbase of 1460 mm with the ground clearance standing at a good 175 mm. The motorcycle is shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso tyres with specifications at 110/70/ZR17 (Front) and 150/60/ZR17 (Rear). Retardation is provided by 320 mm petal disc at the front and 240 mm disc at the rear.
The website reports that the switchgear feels premium and is backlit as well. The instrument cluster is seen with an analogue tachometer with lights that move along with the revs.
The engine powering the Mojo will be a 295 cc, single cylinder unit that is expected to develop 27 bhp at 8,000 rpm and peak torque of 30 Nm at 6,000 rpm coupled to a six-speed transmission. The rider stated that the Mojo returns 30 kilometers to the liter.
Motorbeam learns from the rider that the high torque output helps the motorcycle to climb steep slopes with relative ease, the suspension setup is “amazing,” the ABS brakes feel “better than the Honda CBR250R’s,” the Pirelli tyres provide “excellent grip in dry weather and wet conditions alike,” the ergonomics are “spot on which make it a better tourer than any other bike in the segment” and the twin pod headlamp “illuminates without scatter.”
The Mahindra Mojo is expected in dealerships this festive season at a price of INR 1.5 to 1.7 lakh (ex-showroom).
