The Indian performance biking scene is already buzzing with activity (what with the launch of Ninja 300 and Duke 390?) and with bikes like the Pulsar 375 coming our way, one doesn’t need to be a fortune teller to predict that things are looking better for us bike aficionados in near future.
You would remember that Mahindra Two Wheelers, one of the newest players in this market, stepped into the industry with a bang by unveiling the Mahindra Mojo 300 performance bike. The Mojo grabbed a lot of eyeballs and was in news for several days, which isn’t really surprising. All of a sudden, here was a performance bike from a renowned auto group that was aiming at giving some sleepless nights to some of the established bike makers. Many speculations later, it emerged that the Mojo was still sometime away from making it to production.
We reported in detail when it emerged that the Mojo 300 would come with an all new styling, which won’t be akin to the concept model’s Malaguti MR250 inspired looks. The re-skinned Mojo was recently spotted testing and it seems like the twin round-dome headlamps setup of concept bike would be present even on the production spec bike (Check Lead Image).
Also, it seems like the rear end of the production spec bike would be somewhat similar to that of the KTM Duke 200/390. The test bike was seen shod with Pirelli Street Demons.
Also, it can be seen that the bike would come with upside-down front forks, a petal disc brake at front and a conventional disc brake at rear. The Mojo 300 would be a direct rival to the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 375, the KTM Duke 390, the much loved Honda CBR250R and the Hyosung GT250R. Powering the Mojo 300 would be a fuel injected, 292cc, single cylinder-four stroke engine with a 4 valve DOHC head. The engine would be mated to a six speed ‘box and is expected to have a max power output of around 32PS.
