Mahindra Two Wheelers has said that it will launch 10 new models by 2016. This was announced by Anoop Mathur, president two-wheeler division during the national launch of the Centuro premium commuter motorcycle at a function in Jaipur recently.
He also confirmed that they were working on a scooter oriented towards women riders and that the demand for such products was on the rise. He did not however, provide details about the product. It will be aimed at the Hero Passion and the Yamaha Ray and will mostly be developed in house like the Centuro and the Pantero.
Mathur also announced that the Mahindra Mojo 300 will be launched for the Indian market by the end of this fiscal year. The Mojo was unveiled in 2010 but did not enter production for a long time. It is powered by a 292cc single cylinder mill that produces 27PS, 24Nm of torque and is mated to a five-speed gearbox. The Mojo, as and when launched, will compete with the Honda CBR250R, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the KTM Duke 390 ABS.
We also posed a question to Sarosh Shetty, VP of marketing, about how they would price the Mojo as compared to the competitive price of the KTM Duke 390. He refused to comment but hinted that they would have a product at that category and price range, leading us to believe that the Mojo 300 will not be the only premium bike from Mahindra.
