Another important, but not much talked about bike from the Mahindra stable is the Stallio. While the Mojo is the technology and performance flagship, the stallion is what Mahindra would want to earn its bread and butter from. The 106.7cc engine is single cylinder air-cooled engine produces peak power of 7.3PS@7500 rpm and peak torque of 8.0 Nm@5500 rpm. The engine is mated to four-speed transmission.
Both the bikes will come with 4 years/ 40,000 kms warranty and eight free services.
– Here is the important bit…Mahindra Mojo is priced at Rs. 1.75 lakh and Mahindra Stallio with alloys and digital console is priced at Rs. 44,ooo (All prices are ex-showroom, Pune.)

Headlight: The Stallio uses a conventional ‘multi-focal-reflector’ type headlight unit incorporated within a chiseled bikini fairing which Mahindra likes to call an ‘inverted arrow design’. The headlight also incorporates two pilot/parking lights.
Instrumentation Console: The design of the instrumentation console takes a lot of inspiration from the console on the ‘Rodeo’. We are suspecting a similar color changing function to make it to the Stallio too.
Rear Suspension: The Stallio incorporates conventional spring damped dual shock absorbers which are the preferred choice amongst the commuter crowd.
Gear Shifter: The Stallio sticks to the conventional formula in this regard too and uses a toe-heel shifter and a rather flat one at that.
Seat and tail end design: From the side profile, the tail section of the Stallio looks too similar to Bajaj’s Discover line-up. The Stallio’s seat appears to be long and wide, while the taillight looks inspired from a Passion Pro.
Engine design: The 106cc mill of the Stallio is a horizontally opposed design similar to the Hero Honda’s trusty ol’ 98cc workhorses.
Alloy wheel: The not-so-spectacular 5-spoke alloy wheel incorporates a drum brake design. No info yet whether a disc option will be available at the launch or at a later stage.
Tank: The matte-finish centre panel should add a two-tone appeal. Fit and finish however, can only be commented upon after we see the bike in flesh.
Grab Rail: No fancy frills here. The Stallio incorporates a plain jane grab rail like most Hero Hondas.
The Stallio features a pass-light switch which is still absent on some commuters. The handlebar does not have bar-end weights – hopefully not required on the new engine.

Unlike the Mojo which will be available only in three colours, the Stallio will be available in 5 colours – black, red, green, yellow and blue.
