And Mahindra Mojo’s testing phase goes on relentlessly! This does create doubts about the exact launch period of the bike, which has been hanging fire since years.
In one incident, a camouflaged test mule of the Mahindra Mojo was spied by the folks at MotorBeam. The test bike was clad in camouflage, and carried a red registration plate. We can see that the test mule carries some changes and updates. These include :
- A meaner-looking fuel tank
- New Air intakes
- LED Tail-lights
- Bikini-fairing on the twin-headlight setup
The Mahindra Mojo was first showcased at the 2012 Auto Expo. It was about to be launched in a segment that lacked any other competitors, and was expected to be a runaway success. However, the Mahindra Mojo still hasn’t seen the light of the day. The Mahindra Mojo’s testing continues unabated, with it having witnessed many corrections and feature additions. The Mahindra Mojo had been showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo, too.
The twin-exhaust setup has been retained, though. Mahindra has also decided to continue with the unique copper shade on the swingarm of the Mahindra Mojo. The Mojo also features a digital instrument cluster with an analogue tachometer and shifting lights, as seen at the Auto Expo. The Mahindra Mojo will be powered by a 295 cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine. It will churn out a peak power of 28 PS at 8000 rpm and a peak torque of 25 Nm at 6500 rpm. The engine will be fed fuel with he help of an ECU-controlled Fuel Injection system. Power will be transferred to the rear wheel via a chain drive mated to a six-speed gearbox.
The Mojo will ride on expensive shoes in the form of Pirelli Sport Demons wrapped around the 17-inch alloys. It will have Upside-Down Forks at the front, and a monoshock setup at the rear. Mojo will definitely be aggressively priced, and that will be its USP against competition provided by the likes of Honda CBR250R, KTM Duke 200, Kawasaki Ninja 300, Suzuki Inazuma and the Bajaj Pulsar 200SS.
We just hope that the Mahindra Mojo’s testing phase gets over soon, and it hits the showrooms as soon as possible!
