Mahindra introduced the reworked Mojo at the 2014 Auto Expo in Delhi. Since then, we have witnessed dozens of spy images of this motorcycle. Mahindra is leaving no boxes unchecked while testing its new motorcycle, the Mojo. This time, the Mojo was spotted in the mountainous region of Ladakh where the manufacturer is testing the motorcycle in extreme conditions. The latest photographs were snapped by Team-BHP member “Dreamseller” who spotted the motorcycle in the Himalayas. The Mahindra Mojo has been in plans from as early as 2010. But the motorcycle is yet to be launched for sale.
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.
The Mojo comes with premium features such as the USD (Up Side Down) forks also known as inverted telescopic front shock absorbers, Pirelli Sport Demon tyres and front and rear disc brakes. 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. The handlebar and the switches (if you ignore the colours) remind us of the KTM Duke motorcycles.
Mahindra has put in lot of design elements into the Mojo. The twin headlights with eyebrow like daytime running lights give the Mojo a character of its own. The Mojo also gets a tank mounted ignition key hole. The tank seems large enough to store fuel for long rides. The saddle seem to be well padded and should provide good comfort to the rider. But we can’t say the same for the pillion. The pillion seat appears to be small in size. The pillion grab bar does not look big enough to provide proper access. The tail light design could have been better. Also, the Mojo being a premium product, Mahindra could have added a pair of LED turn indicators instead of the conventional units.
The huge disc at the front looks huge and should provide good braking capabilities. We are still unsure about the reason for giving a dual-exhaust. The instrument cluster comprises of a analogue RPM meter with rest of the information being digital. The red-line, as seen in the images, stands at 8,500 RPM.
