Spied – IAB reader clicks a pair of Mahindra Mojos on test
As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
Puts out 26 PS and 25 Nm of torque.
The redesigned Mojo was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo in February this year and since then, it was photographed several times, ahead of its perpetually imminent launch date. The redesigned flagship motorcycle from Mahindra Two Wheelers Ltd. gets a new fuel tank, tank extensions and LED daytime running lights that look like eyebrows above the twin circular headlamp units.
The Mojo which has an appeal of a tourer has a comfortable riding stance. The front petal disc, generously proportioned Pirelli Sport Demon tyres and dual silencers give it a big bike feel.
The heart of the bike is a 296 cc single-cylinder liquid cooled motor which is coupled to a 6-speed transmission that employs a chain drive. Power and torque figures of the fuel injected engine stand at 26 PS (25.6 bhp) and 25 Nm respectively.
