Its a well scooter for daily use and long dri

2 years ago by Shohaib Multani1,440 views

I've purchased it one year used and I've kept it for about 4 years. It's one of the best scooter in India. It gives smooth ride and have a soft comfortable seat. It looks good while riding. Because of it's shape, which make it ride faster than other scooters. It only takes about 2-3 days for servicing which is nearly good for customers. It gives you outer fueling which is most important in today's generation. It have a digital speedometer which have x1000rmp meter which cannot be find in any other scooter in India. It also have mobile charger point which is the biggest pros in the scooter and it also have a big space in backseat.

The only cons in this vehicle is it's mileage which is about 45kmpl. I recommend this to buy for those who loves long drive.

Tips for Mahindra Rodeo

If you want to maintain this scooter, you should put it on service in every 2 months.

    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.

    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.

    Great pickup but poor mileage. The vehicle requires continuous maintenance and service. Not worth the money. Please choose another bike.You can go for other vehicles in this budget like activa or scooty pep.I have been using this bike for more than 4 years and and repair costs would have been reached more than the original cost of bike. Totally dissatisfied.

    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.

    Only one thing in rodeo best is its front brake is like bike and for this thing only i bought it for its looks and digital meter but after 2 years it start giving problem. When i wanted to go somewhere it closes in traffic which annoyed me and easily it cannot start by pressing electric start. Its worst thing is that its kick start is so hard that it gives pain in leg.
