Continues as a constructor of Moto3 racers.
Autocar India reports that the 2016 version of the Mahindra Moto3 race bike (the Mahindra MGP30) will have its premiere at the Auto Expo 2016 in Greater Noida in early-February. The company’s stall is reported to also present the Mahindra GenZe 2.0.
The 2016 Moto3 model has been developed in-house by Mahindra Racing’s new European technical centre at Besozzo, near Varese in Northern Italy. It is said to be 90 percent different from the 2015 Moto3 racer. As a Moto3 constructor, Mahindra supplied the 2015 model to nine riders and four teams. This year, Peugeot Motorcycles will also enter as a constructor in Moto3. They are said to be planning to use Mahindra Racing bikes to power the Saxoprint Racing Team Germany.
The Mahindra GenZe 2.0 is an electric scooter that went on sale in the US late last year at a price of USD 2,999 (close to INR 2 lakhs). Billed as the world’s first electric connected scooter, the GenZe 2.0 has a 7-inch Cruise-Connect touchscreen control panel at the centre of the handlebar which also serves as the instrument console. The 105 kg scooter has a payload capacity of 125 kg, and a 48.3 km (30 miles) ride range.
