After years of testing and development, Mahindra finally launched the Mojo at Rs.1.58 lakh (Ex-Showroom Delhi) earlier this year. The Mahindra Mojo was recently launched after undergoing rigorous tests over the years. Mahindra had also announced that an ABS version of this touring motorcycle would follow and now an ABS equipped Mojo has been spotted testing as per a report by Motor Beam. This feature prepares the Mojo for the proposed safety norms due to be implemented in 2017 which states that ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and CBS (Combined Braking System) will be compulsory for two-wheelers with an engine capacity of more than 125 cc.

Spy images of the Mahindra Mojo ABS feature the standard Mojo equipped with ABS that is connected to a testing kit. The automaker had claimed that they will be using a dual channel ABS for the Mojo which can be confirmed from the image. The source claims that the ABS unit is sourced the brand Continental while the brakes continue to be sourced from the same Spanish component maker, J. Juan that is a part of Mahindra’s Moto 3 racing team.
This upcoming variant of the Mojo will feature switchable ABS that will allow the user to turn on and turn off the ABS with the help of a toggle button on the switch gear. Other features of the Mojo will remain same as the current version with the bike being powered by a 295 cc, liquid cooled engine that produces 28 PS of peak power and 30 Nm of torque. Transmission duties are taken care of by a 6 speed transmission.
Expect a price hike of Rs. 10,000-20,000 for the ABS version of the Mojo. Once launched, the Mojo will be one of the very few models to feature ABS. Popular models that feature ABS are the Bajaj Pulsar RS200, Honda CBR 250R, TVS Apache RTR 180 and the KTM Duke 390 and we expect the Mojo to join this list as soon as April 2016.
