    Style


    a stylishly built scooter stands out in the crowd and is beaten probably only by yamaha ray or honda dio on looks parametre. Nonetheless the structure is basic enough to not let a senior citizen out of place while riding. The plastics could have been better. However, the scooter provides you with a huge storage, digital display panel, anti theft lock key and a led light in storage space and makes it one of a kind feature rich scooter. Overall 7.5 On 10 for style.


    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox


    mahindra has come up with a winderful engine. Amazing pick up followed by a top performance and the bike reaches 80-85 kmph with unbelievable ease and yet provides the stability that one needs. On road performance wise it leaves its competitiors like activa otr wego way behind. Probably suzuki access matches its performnace. 8 On 10 for engine performance.


    Fuel economy os the biggest letdown by the mahindra rodeo. Whereas all the competitors tender a figure between 42 and 47 kmpl, rodeo stands at a disappointing 32 kmpl. Carry it through a heavy traffic and the figure stoops below 30 kmpl.


    Moreover, the digital panel provides the reading only for 2.5 Ltrs of fuel while the tank measures 4.5 Ltrs. That means you assume you have 4.5 Ltrs in the kitty as the fuel metre shows that but realise later that you have run out of fuel in the midst of a travel.


    Overall 3 on 10 for fuel economy.


    Ride quality & handling


    ride quality is amazing. The turning radius is not probably as fine as a tvs wego but the ride is much comfortable and enjoyable than any other competitior except probably yamaha ray or suzuki access.


    Handelling too is impressive and it slips through the traffice very well. Responds well on turns and yes it is unbelievably stable compared to its sleek looks.


    Overall 8.5 On 10 for ride quality and handling.



    Final words


    mahindra rodeo is a performer and will not disappoint you if you are looking for a performance oriented scooter. Fuel economy is a curse to this scooter and that itself is biggets deterrent in buying it. You can shut your eyes and buy it if your daily commutting is around 10 km. More than that and you feel the pinch on your pocket.


    No resale value. A three year old scooter won't fetch you even 20000/- in second hand market.


    Areas of improvement


    fuel economy. I am not sure if the rz model has a improved fuel economy but for the standard model it is a disaster.

    Pros

    power and pick up, suspension, style and features

    cons

    fuel economy

    The worst problem of this bike is that the head light of this bike focuses in the sky even if i use low beam which makes it extremely difficult to ride it at night.

    I was attracted to this bike because of its price, suspension (the so called telescopic suspension as stated by the company in its features), digital speedometer, and the most important one its horse power(110 cc).

    But only after a few days the bike started showing problems. The fuel indicator failed only within 30 days. I cant express the pain i went through to ride the bike with empty fuel tank to nearest fuel station which was nearly 2 kms away!!! so i showed it to the service station and they fixed the problem but the system failed again in the next few days and the whole system had to be replaced with insurance money!!!! slowly the suspension and mileage also wearied down.

    Buying experience: i brought this scooter in the year 2010 and now it's 2019 almost 9 years apart , the showrooms staff were good, i got the scooter promptly as they had a good collection of all the colours, mine is blazing red. Important highlights of this scooter included : 1) first scooter made in india with digital colourful multi-functional speedometer includes functions such as trip a ,trip b ,clock , 0-50km in how many second , 50 meters in how many seconds and not just that 7+ different colours with 3 different styles of colour changing : singular changing, slow dimming automatic changing mode and automatic single colour changing ! there is tachometer like a sports bike , can you find any other scooter with such a rich dashboard ? apart from this there is a side stand indicator.Other features include low slammed suspension setup with telescopic suspension in front and uni shock at the rear which gives you really an awesome comfort and cornering confidence Storage space under the seat is about 22 litres i guess it's so so big, till date no other scooter has such a huge storage. Performance: it accelerates from 0-50km per hour in 9.8 secs . Even after 8 years it's the same acceleration , such as good performing scooter, i will explain later in this review of how this is maintained and it's drawbacks. The acceleration is also very linear, meaning it takes you to speeds which you don't realize unless you see the speedo by the time you reach 70+ kmph speed. The fact is , this acceleration gives you less vibration and therefore more confidence while making turns and sliding the bumps, it's the same confidence you would find in the aprilia150 which is on sale today.Brakes: brakes are just ok, for a scooter this level with a 125cc engine and 108 kg kerb we would need a better brakes to bring this mini hooligan to a stop, but it's just alright , we can adjust with both front and brakes engaged at the same time. By the way , there were no disc brakes for scooter as this class at my time (2010) of buying. Barely there was no competition for this with only suzuki access 125 being its counterpart or partner in crime.Looks : even today after all these years it's too stylish and is still noticeable by many on the road, it still stands apart, designed by the italian designer sym , i am not sure of where this designer is located or who was behind the model, but it's sleek design , making it very stylish if you look at it from any angle , i mean just look at it. Rodeo is a crowd puller.Now coming to important part, the disadvantages: Even though rodeo has a good ride experience, performance , road presence, handling like a bike , good refinement, raspy exhaust, still it has many disadvantages and drawback due to the bad r&d team whom were present in mahindra two wheeler division, which i have to accept as a customer and today they all are fired out of the company. There will always be customers waiting at service centre because they have complains on and off , even for normal complains such as side side loose or scooter getting hit on all potholes and bumps , i know why all that happened and what went really wrong.Let me put it all of those in single words or points:1) poor ground clearance leading to risk of fuel tank breakage since its fuel filler is next to front steering goes just below the chassis so anytime if you want to off road , think twice or you should learn or master how to not hit the tank by hard riding 2) side stand hits the road when you try to park , even with your scooter up straight, always 3)headlamps focus: if you are night rider , make sure that the headlight adjustment screw is focused to the road , or else the light will focus straight on the other vehicle , not on the road , even at low beam , so everytime service centre adjustment is required .4)rectifier aka rr unit : as many of you don't know the rodeo scooter has a big fault with the rectifier unit which converts ac to dc current from the dyno to the battery, so this unit frequent fails thereby killing your bulb of all lights , nd your speedometer too , now you have to keep checking the current of the rectifier time to time , to avoid this, ofcourse the battery is the first component to die in this issue. (as i kept changing battery every 2 years for no reason, is due to this problem , which i learnt from a good mahindra service centre and especially battery shop, they will diagnose problem and will tell you this!)5) engine : after usage of just 25 or 30kms all the engine components such as a valve, timer,etc will fail easily) just a short period ? since i maintain my scooter well , still all these failed, even from other owners the same complains emerged , so for all the parts, i mean all the wearable parts: to change: mahindra 2 wheeler service has a ready made list which has parts to change and will cost you 7000rs in total ,Mileage is about 20 to 25kmpl is my honest opinion even if you drive real slow and in constant speed , it will give you max 30kmpl in real time that's it . So is rodeo a big fail: well this is the first scooter from mahindra , but i feel really sad for the owner of this company , because the r and d department really failed and cheated on them, nd this caused complete customer dissatisfaction from everyone . I mean even me liking the scooter and knowing all these problems for all these years, i will be the few owners who hasn't sold or thrown the scooter away, you know why, because this is unique , this performance oriented , and well it's my high-school sweetheart. hope this helps everyone to decide to buy this or not, i will say that today they have rectified many problems in this , the latest uzo125 rodeo is good. Well you have to make up your mind , if you are good maintainer then just buy it and if not, then don't complain later. My only complain will be smaller tank and less mileage other i'll live with this any day over other scooter with all their features, even today.

    Mahindra is taking the market for granted and will ripe what it sowed very soon.

    The monopoly of servicing centers created by not providing the spares to open market is a planned strategy to fleas the owners after selling the bike.

    Service centers are irresponsible and unkind. They are not only unprofessional but wouldn't mind compromising safety of the rider for money.

    The most useless bike since:-

    A) it develops too many faults too soon.

    B) can be repaired at mahindra service centers only who do not provide pickup service.

    C) all other service centers or roadside garages refuse to repair the bike even for the most critical issues. Rider have to drag the bike or arrange for the transportation. Imagine the plight of ladies and senior citizens?

    D) the resale value is nil since no one buys it for want of spares. No brands accept the rodeo in exchange for the same reason.

    E) service centers create problems deliberately and charge heavenly thereafter - making the fuel pipe leak and malfunctioning the fuel gauge is very common. They are not bothered if the bike is stuck in the wilderness at odd hours as far as they are making money.

    F) servicing done is very poor and not on time.

    G) owing to monopoly, the staff is unkind and unprofessional. There dealing with the senior citizens and ladies is equally rude.

    Better to avoid such product.

    The riding experience was good the vehicle was very smooth and could go upto a speed of 86km per hour even after 7 years in use. The pickup and acceleration were very good. Like a sports bike you could take high speed turns by bending your vehicle. The vehicle was most comfortable in its class and was good for long drives. The only problem was very low capacity of fuel tank and high fuel consumption.

    Style cool.


    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox good ,worst & ok.


    Ride quality & handling good.


    Final words the worst decision in my life to purchase this bike, each serivce has cost me 2000 - 3000 rupees, alternatively some major part would conk off & burden me with the bills , problems on self starting, kick starting too difficult, clutch problems, finally after running the vehicle for 3 years last service i did in the month of february 2015, just after a week the vehicle didnt start & me spending 2750/- on the serivce, the service engineer said that engine has to rebored. Oh come on i could not bear it anymore, when i asked him to exchange for the gusto i was told the best they could offer was 5000 - 8000 , i had bought the vehicle for 54000 i think so, sheer waste of money. The total that i spent on the bike for service would be close to 30000/-

    pros

    stylish , powerful ,smooth

    cons

    self motor problems ,engine problems,low ground clearance,worst mileage , completely undependable
