Mahindra two-wheeler's upcoming 110cc scooter will reportedly be called Zesto in the country. Codenamed G101, Mahindra's first 110cc scooter is expected to make its debut in the Indian two-wheeler market in September first week.
The scooter has been caught on test on Indian roads numerous time and a now a latest report of BikeWale, citing its sources claim that the Mahindra will dub its new scooter Zesto. It looks like Mahindra is planning to carry forward its 'O' tradition that we have seen with the Rodeo, Duro, Centuro, Pantero and Qaunto.
In another development, the folks at Motorbeam have shared a set of spy shots of Mahindra's G101 110cc scooter, which is believed to have been taken at a parking lot.
In the images, the scooter is seen uncamouflaged and looks production ready, consolidating previous rumours that the scooter could arrive in the market soon. Though Zesto has been spied in the country dozen times, the company shared little about its design and details so far.
From what we have heard so far, Mahindra G101 is likely to get power from air-cooled four-stroke single-cylinder 106.7cc engine, which can pump in a power of 8.5 PS and peak torque of 8.5 Nm, coupled to a CVT.
Zesto is likely to give a return over 60 kmpl and is expected to include features like MRF Nylogrip tyres, telescopic front forks, a new instrument console, an analogue fuel gauge and archetypal switch-gear.
G101, the new entrant to the highly competitive 110cc segment is likely to flaunt a similar design of Activa and once it hits the market, Zesto will be pinned to rival Honda Activa, Dio, TVS Jupiter Yamaha Ray, Alpha and Hero Maestro. Mahindra is likely to price its new scooter in the ₹50,000 brackets.
Apart from the 110ccc scooter, Mahindra will also be launching its Mojo 300 and new Centuro in the country soon.
