Mahindra Mojo 300cc motorcycle

Mahindra 2 Wheeler has become the latest entrant to not only the motorcycle segment in India, but also into the premium motorcycle segment with the launch of Mahindra Mojo.

mahindra-mojo-300cc motorcycle

Mahindra Mojo is powered by a 4st 292cc single cylinder liquid cooled engine with 4 valves and is mated with a 6 speed gearbox and produces 24Nm of torque at 7000rpm and 26bhp of peak power at 8500rpm.

The Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system for the Mojo has been developed by Ducati Energia of Italy. In an industry first in India, the Mojo comes with inverted front shock absorbers developed by Paioli of Italy, which ensures superior shock absorbing ability at high speeds. This is complemented by a horizontally mounted mono shox at the rear, allowing for much more comfortable ride.

Mojo is the first ever motorcycle in India to sport Pirelli tubeless radial tyres. They are also the widest tyres in their class (4” x 17” at the rear), ensuring greater stability. These are complemented by edgy front petal disc brakes which are the largest in the segment at 320 mm to ensure safe braking. The 320mm front disc brake is radially mounted to help in accurate and powerful braking and is complemented by 220mm disc brake at the rear.

The bike also features LED pilot lamps and tail lamps with clear lens indicators in the headlamp, ensuring greater visibility for the rider. The display includes a digital speedometer with fuel gauge, tripmeter, gear shift indicator, and analogue tachometer.

While the design of Mahindra Mojo is radical, it isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea and some might even find it downright ugly!

Mahindra Mojo has been launched in India and is priced at Rs. 175,000 (Ex-Showroom Pune) and would be available in red and black colors and customers will have the option of customising their bikes with a range of decals.

  3. its not most sexy or awesome design..
    but its radical and eye-catching..
    tech-specs look gr8 too..
    but india it has not competition..
    or does it??

  4. Depends on the pricing, if it reaches anywhere near the price of Ninja 250 (which I do not think it would), then it would be hard to justify.

    Though I have a feeling that this will finally open the floodgates for other higher capacity motorcycles by Indian manufacturers like Bajaj and TVS.

  5. God!! The bike looks like a peacock, but then these are not official pictures/figures so will reserve my comment. Engine specs sounds good … keeping fingers crossed. Noone expected Mahindra to launch a performance bike, proverbial bolt from the blue!

    Keep up the good job guys.

  6. Surajit, these are official photographs and specifications, which were uploaded on to Mahindra 2 Wheeler website!

  7. @Yogesh

    Was not aware of the fact that the pictures are official … what’s your take on the design?

    I’d say garish but bold design, I am happy that a mainstream manufacturer have put such a design into production. As you said before this just might prove as a catalyst for other companies to follow suit.

  8. Going by the photographs I would say it is striking but ugly, however I would reserve my judgment till I see it in flesh, since I have a feeling that this design can only be understood properly, after one gets to see the bike in person.

  10. Price for the Mahindra Mojo is 1.75lakh rupees, ex-showroom Pune!

  11. this bike dosen’t looks good and i don’t think so any one want to buy it.i m very disappointed mahindra.

  12. if tehy launch near one lac than it really gear up

  13. it might look ugly, i don’t like the headlamp fairing, a bit plainer would have melted with its naked look better, but it doesn’t matter how it looks, the technology and the performance with many first in india features, so much research and development, and good pricing, its as much welcome as the ninja, both of which opens the doors for a competition in the performance segment and this i think is a lot to cheer about,
    Personally i’d buy any thing which lets me cross the 100 kmph mark faster then any indian bike,
    For ours is the worlds 2nd largest motorcycle market, we got very few machines to choose from in the performance segment, and there’s a large black hole after 220cc which i’m glad is vanishing slowly, expect some more and better machines from almost every producer, not from hero honda,the bastards care only about volumes..
    .
    .
    .Its mahindra’s take on to the sports bike segment which was almost in inertia after pulser came, the changes are very light and small in engine and innovation..
    Mahindra sure is a much more brave and bold player then its industry mates

  14. tho..i dint like the headlamp..but this initiative by mahindra is defenetly goin to bridge the gap that Indian motorycle industry has in 250cc and above segment. priced at 1.75L(ex-showroom) its goin to be a budget option as compared to NInja’s 250 cc..
    waiting egerly for the bike to be in road!!
