The Mahindra Centuro, the first motorcycle from the company to be entirely developed in-house, has started off very well thanks to its killer introductory price tag.
The 110cc commuter motorcycle has clocked 10,000 bookings in just 18 days which is commendable considering that Mahindra is a new brand in the unforgiving Indian commuter bike segment. It's to be noted that the first 10,000 units of the Centuro had a discounted price of Rs. 44,000 (ex-showroom Delhi).
At an introductory price of Rs. 45,000 (ex-showroom Delhi), you get electric starter, alloy wheels, digital dashboard with Distance To Empty meter, remote flip key, engine immobilizer with anti-theft alarm, Find Me and Guide Me lamps.
The Centuro is powered by Mahindra2Wheelers' homegrown 110cc MCI-5 4-stroke air cooled engine which generates 8.5 bhp and 8.5 Nm of torque. The engine is paired to a 4-speed gearbox.
Apart from the competitive pricing, another important contributor for the Centuro's good response is the free five year warranty.
Mr. Viren Popli, Executive Vice President, Mahindra2Wheelers stated -
We are truly delighted that the Mahindra Centuro has garnered over 10,000 bookings in such a short period of time. At the same time, we are very aware of the enhanced customer expectations and are striving to meet and exceed them.
