Kawasaki Z1000-inspired custom Mahindra Mojo
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
The Mahindra Mojo has a unique design and is a highly capable tourer. This particular Mojo seems to have borrowed design elements from the Kawasaki Z1000.
Kawasaki calls the Z1000’s styling as ‘Sugomi Design’. The Z1000’s Sugomi Design borrows from a hunting predator’s killing form. This Mahindra Mojo’s Z1000-inspired headlamp; and the black paintwork red and silver highlights surely give the bike a more aggressive appeal. The already muscular 21-litre fuel tank further highlights the bike’s sportiness. The upside-down fork at the front looks stock, but bears ‘WP’ sticker. The stock alloy wheels have orange finish, and the rear comes with a tyre hugger. The front fender is custom as well.
The powertrain looks unchanged. In its stock form, the Mahindra Mojo XT 300 makes 27.1 PS and 30 Nm from its 295 cc mill with liquid cooling and fuel injection. The bike uses a monoshock at the rear; and brakes include 320 mm front petal disc and 240 mm rear disc, without ABS. The 17-inch alloy wheels are shod with 110-section front and 150-section rear Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres. The bike costs INR 1,74,520.
Mahindra also recently launched a less-expensive variant of the Mojo, called the Mojo UT300. The bike gets a single silencer, MRF tyres and a slightly down-tuned carburetted engine. It costs INR 1,39,520, ex-showroom, Delhi.
