Mahindra’s new flagship motorcycle, the Mojo, will be launched this year in June. After much delay in introducing this 300cc motorcycle from Mahindra, a website has confirmed the launch of the bike in the Indian market.
The Mojo was unveiled at the Auto Expo this year. Mahindra exhibited a production- ready and a race-spec version of the motorcycle at the biennial event. Though this bike is mechanically the same as the two-wheeler exhibited at the 2012 Auto Expo, it gets significant cosmetic changes. These include a new front cowl and fuel tank. The twin headlamp setup now gets DRLs.
The Mahindra Mojo is powered by a 300cc DOHC four valve engine that might churn out around 26bhp of power at 8,500rpm and 24Nm of torque at 7,000rpm. This motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The manufacturer has equipped this motorcycle with the Ducati electronic fuel injection system that improves the performance while making sure that the CO2 gas emissions are reduced. The Mojo features a gas charged mono shock dual exhausts at the rear.
Mahindra delayed the launch of this product due to the continuous and rigorous testing. The upcoming bike has been spotted testing many times in a disguised avatar on the outskirts of Pune. With the delay of this product that has made many bikers lose interest in the bike, we think that Mojo 300 will have to be aggressively priced to compete with the KTM 390 and the Kawasaki Ninja 300.
