Update - MotorOctane has corrected the story stating that the Mojo will be launched in the first half of the financial year.

Its been 5 years since the Mojo was first revealed.

A report on MotorOctane states that the Mahindra Mojo will launch in the first half of the financial year, nearly half-a-decade after it was first showcased - as a concept - at the 2010 Delhi Auto Expo. The publication quotes Dr Pawan Goenka, Executive Director, Mahindra & Mahindra, who said that the motorcycle will launch in 2015.

The Mojo will produce 26.6 bhp from its liquid-cooled engine.

Further, Dr. Goenka said that the Mojo will "add value" to the company's portfolio, and that it isn't expected to contribute to high volumes. A report in March stated that Mahindra had already started trial production of the Mojo at its Pithampur facility in Madhya Pradesh, further bolstering the executive's statement that a June launch would indeed take place.

The Mojo would be powered by a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled 295 cc engine capable of 26.6 bhp and 25 Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed transmission. Based on telescopic forks up front and a mono-shock suspension at the rear, Mahindra is likely to equip the Mojo with high-end Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres.

Rivals: Honda CBR250R, KTM Duke 200
Expected Price Range: Around INR 1.5 lakhs, ex-showroom
Launch Date: June 2015 (reported)
