A fuel guzzler!!!

4 years ago by Gautam5,797 views

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
