Bike enthusiasts who have been closely watching the development of Mahindra’s plans to launch the much awaited Mahindra Mojo, already know that the company has been testing the performance bike for a long time now but is yet to announce its plans to launch the 300 cc motorcycle.
Recently, the Mahindra Mojo was exported to United Arab Emirates (UAE) and as per Import and Export data website, Zauba.com, each unit of Mahindra Mojo is priced at Rs. 1.25 lakh. If Mahindra actually plans to sell the Mojo for Rs. 1.25 lakh, it will give tough competition to the KTM Duke 200 that is priced at about Rs. 1.50 lakh. At this price, Mojo will be the most affordable performance bike in the Indian motorcycle market.
Mahindra Mojo was recently spied in December, 2014 and it is expected to be launched in March 2015. The Mojo is expected to derive power from the 295cc, single cylinder, 4-stroke, liquid cooled engine with Dual Overhead Camshaft (DOHC) that holds the capability to produce 27 bhp of power and 25Nm of torque. It will be available with a 6-speed gearbox.
The Mojo is expected to deliver a fuel economy of about 30 kms per litre. The 300 cc performance bike is expected to accelerate from 0 to 100 km per hour in less than 12 seconds and can also attain a top speed of 150 km per hour.
It is believed that Mahindra is working towards making the Mojo more suitable for Indian roads. The Mojo can deliver instant throttle response with lesser gear shifts and the gearbox too is expected to be smoother making the bike ideal to deal with city traffic.
Mahindra is expected to incorporate twin headlamps with DRLs in the front fairing of the Mojo, while the rear is expected to get a conventional disc. There would also be a huge petal disc brake provision at the front. Other features that could come with the Mahindra Mojo include LED tail lamps, dual exhausts, Pirelli Sport Demon tyres, light weight alloy wheels and the upside down front forks. It is expected that the Mojo would be available with a wheelbase of 1450 mm.
Mahindra Mojo was last unveiled in India at the 2014 Auto Expo. The Mojo was slated for its launch in 2012 but due to technical glitches in the bike, the company delayed its launch. Mojo will compete with Kawasaki Ninja 300R, Honda CBR250R and KTM Duke 390 in India.
