The Mojo, which has been in the pipeline for four years now, will be the next product to be launched. Mr. P.S. Ashok, senior VP and head (R&D and Pune operations), Mahindra Two Wheelers, told Indian Autos Blog on the sidelines of the Gusto's media ride program that the launch time frame of the Mojo depends on the time required to stabilize the Gusto in the highly competitive scooter market.

He however confirmed that the Mojo will be the next product in line, hinting that it would be launched before the end of this year if the Gusto stays on track as far as sales expectations are concerned.
