Mahindra Mojo is one of its kind offering in the sub 2 lakh segment of Indian motorcycling. It offers premium components like Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres, USD front forks, semi digital instrument console and a powerful 294.72CC engine that is good for 26.82 BHP and 30 Nm of torque. Its comes with twin exhaust cans for a better exhaust note and claims itself to be the most comfortable tourer among all other bikes in India. Mahindra Mojo rivals Royal Enfield Himalayan, which is again a tourer but with a privilege of tackling no road terrain with its rough design and off-road components. Mahindra Mojo, the most awaited name in the Indian 2 wheeler industry this year has finally arrived for the masses. Mahindra Mojo 300 has been officially launched with an introductory price tag of Rs 1.58 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). This price was valid for all bookings till Diwali and the updated price is Rs. 1.63 lakhs (ex-Delhi). Mahindra has perfectly plotted the Mojo into the entry level tourer segment, making it the undisputed king till the RE Himalayan arrives. The half decade period burned into its testing and finalization has resulted into pure riding pleasure from the Indian bike maker. Mojo proves that Indian 2 wheeler industry has much more potential than their current offerings and they can certainly rule a segment with a premium drive feel all the time. Mojo comes with a class apart design, starting its unique story from its front headlight first. The twin cluster is not as every other sport bike in the market. It gets two perfectly round lights enclosed in a compact frame with an extended visor in the middle. The crown shaped arrangement looks perfect to its function and provides good amount of wind protection. The front forks and swing arm has been painted golden in order to increase the overall appeal of the bike. Golden ribs have been provided on the White and Black shades, which turns Black in the Mahindra Racing Red shade. The twin exhaust design is also a first in class option, providing not just better looks but much better exhaust note. The rear arrow shaped LED taillight gets an extended body part below its position, reflecting the light more beautifully in the dark. The grab rails have been perfectly placed for a superior pillion riding experience. The wind deflector around the radiator looks beautiful under the chiselled, muscular fuel tank holding the Mojo branding over it. The Mahindra Mojo gets a totally new concept in its segment when it comes to its indication meters. The analog tachometer has been kept on the left side whereas the digital display has been placed to its right. The tachometer gets all new rev follower lights, lighting the tachometer reading being crossed by the needle. The display on the Mojo is Blue-lit and displays the odometer, speedometer, trip-meter and fuel indicator. The special features from the Mojo's console include a 0-100 kmph timer and top speed recorder. This sounds odd as Mojo has been focused as a tourer and it retains all the important figures like a race bike. The instrument console is overall nice and easy to read due to its better dimensions. Mahindra did so much research and testing on its engine part internally that it once felt that it won't come out of the testing lab. Sooner or later, Mahindra has provided the Mojo with a best in class 295CC, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine with Bosch ECU. The engine is good for 26.82 BHP @ 8,000 rpm and 30 NM @ 5,500 rpm. The gearbox being used on the same is a 6-speed unit. The maximum amount of torque comes early providing a powerful riding experience on any type of terrain. Even the maximum amount of power is extracted at a relatively lower rpm than other bikes around the segment. The top speed of the bike is rated at 155 kmph. Mahindra has used upside down forks for the suspension duties at the front with a 143.5 mm of travel whereas the rear gets a high pressure gas charged monoshock with 143 mm of travel. The suspension has been kept soft on the Mojo, making it good for every type of road. Bad roads are not a problem for the Mojo but avoiding them would be good for its overall life cycle. The ground clearance has been kept 173.5 mm and the bike weighs 165 kg, when dry. This makes the Mojo a heavy bike but on the same time favours high speed stable riding. The front of the Mojo gets a 320 mm disc brake (biggest in class) and the rear comes with a 240 mm unit. This makes it clear that safety has been kept best possible at the lowest price cost in the Mojo. The lack of ABS seems bad but Mahindra has hinted at an ABS version soon. The Mojo being a tourer comes with a friendly mileage figure of around 30 kmpl. The figure can fall low to 25 kmpl in the city riding conditions and rise up to 35 kmpl on the highways. The huge 21 liter fuel tank makes it good for a 500+ km of premium riding pleasure, making it good for the purpose of its existence. If you can let the mileage fall further, the Mojo provides a 0-100 kmph time of 9.5 seconds. Mahindra has worked a lot for the comfort of both the riders on a Mojo. The seats have been properly cushioned for avoiding regular breaks while riding on a long stretch. It has been recognized by an American association named Ironbutt for riding 1680 km (1000 miles) in 22 hours, which clearly describes the amount of comfort which had led to the completion of the 24 hour challenge. The bike gets raised handlebars for a better sitting posture and comes with excellent suspension abilities. The powerful riding experience reduces fatigue and the wind deflectors around the radiator reduce heat onto the rider's feet. The bike comes with the best in class Pirelli tyres for excellent road grip on every surface. The front wheel measures 110/70 ZR17 whereas the rear is 150/60 ZR17. The quality of components used while making the Mojo is really appreciable for Mahindra. The roll over sensor used in the bike shuts the engine in case of a fall. Mahindra Mojo comes in three shades: Volcano Red, Charcoal Black, Glacier White. First two comes with golden ribs whereas the Red one uses Balck ribs on its body. Mahindra Mojo 300 was officially launched with an introductory price tag of Rs 1.58 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). This price was valid for all bookings till Diwali. Updated price of Mojo 300 is Rs. 1.63 lakhs. #mahindra
