Mahindra has been trying to make its mark into the two-wheeler segment for many years now. However, the company has managed to mostly sell automatic transmission scooters that too in very little numbers.

The hopes of seeing the Mojo on the street almost died until the company, during the launch event of the Centuro, confirmed Mahindra Mojo 300 street bike. The new variant of the Mahindra Mojo 300 was introduced at the Delhi Auto Expo in 2014.

It was again spotted testing on road. But this time there is something more to it than just the details. Spotted by Rush Lane reader Chetan Gatala, the bike was claimed of doing 150 km/h. Attempts made by the rider to avoid being photographed merely showcased the bikes ability to pull up to high speeds quickly.

Mahindra Mojo is powered by a 295cc, four stroke, single cylinder, liquid cooled engine with Dual Overhead Camshaft (DOHC). The engine is capable of producing maximum power of 27 bhp at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 25Nm at 6,500 rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a 6 speed gearbox. Twin mufflers on either side of rear wheels are seen, which are only found on Suzuki’s Inazuma in that segment.

Ride indicators include an instrument cluster which comprises of a digital speedometer, analogue tachometer (with shift light) and low fuel indicator, among usual warning lights and distance metres.

What makes this product more premium than its competitors are the USD (Up Side Down) forks also known as inverted telescopic front shock absorbers, which are only found on KTM Duke 200/390 in India.

The motorcycle would come loaded with Pirelli Sport Demon tyres mounted on Y-spoke black alloy wheels. Disk brakes have been installed at front as well as on the rear wheel. The seat also seems pretty comfortable compared to the competition which may also work in Mojo’s favour.

Other premium features include LED daytime running lights. The tail light will also be LED. However, the indicators remain conventional. Riding position is more relaxed with seat set much lower to handle bar, like the KTM Duke 200/390 and the Suzuki Inazuma.

Mahindra should launch the Mojo in the upcoming festive season. But the company will face stiff competition with motorcycle majors like Honda, KTM and Kawasaki already dominating the 200-300cc segment in India. Also, Mahindra will have to keep a competitive price in mind given the aggressive pricing done by KTM.

    This very motocycle has been receiving flak from everyone since its was displayed 3 yrs back, true that the motorcycle looked weird in its original avatar. But, the design has come a long way, the present design made the motorcycle look much more acceptable.

    Wow! what a attractive bike. Mahindra’s bike designs are very different and unique. Mahindra Centuro looks very different because of Muscular golden rib and Mojo also looks cool. I am eagerly waiting for this bike. All the best mahindra.

    the thought running through my mind the whole time reading this article was, this looks like shit, and if this one fails,(And as a true blue Indian who want our home raised products to win) there’s only one person responsible-the dumbass who approved this design!! just take a look at the competitors!! other than the karizma ZMR, I don’t think there’s any uglier motorcycle in this country who can even try for the trophy of the ugliest looking bike available in India!! before spending so much money for developing motorcycles, these guys should have invested in a good designer. Im sure with all the experiance mahindra received from their racing team, this piece will run like a breeze. But Mahindra should think over just one thing. in a market where everything sells if its cheap, why couldnt they woo the customers in the bike segment? they thought its with the racing capability. while its true that in this segment their product have to head butt the hondas, yamahas, and the kawasakis, thats not just performance. people want international looks. and Im telling you, with a petrol tank lookin like a squeezed lemon and stupid looking side panels, this design just desappoint in aesthetics, and it looks nothing like a naked street. Just look at how royal enfield got it right with their latest products. mahindra’s best ever looking vehicle is XUV, and they could easily look this one look like a XUV on two wheels with some slight cosmetic changes. really really hope they won’t roll out this product as it is, and then scrutinize the failure later, and end up like UPA after the elections.
