Mahindra 2 Wheelers' 110cc scooter has been spied again in the country undergoing testing, indicating the possible arrival of the scooter in the market soon.
The latest set of spy images are by an IndianAutosBlog reader, who snapped the scooter during its test in Calicut. The upcoming scooter codenamed G101 is expected to come with a unisex design, which is similar to Honda Activa and Jupiter Sport. The front part of the scooter looks inspired by Blaze scooter and is likely to have a new instrument console, an analogue fuel gauge and archetypal switchgear.
Talking of the engine specifications of Mahindra's new scooter, it is likely to come with a single cylinder air cooled four stroke 106.7cc engine, which can pump in a power of 8.5 PS and peak torque of 8.5 Nm. The rumours are rife that the scooter will have MRF Nylogrip tyres and is expected to get telescopic front forks.
Considering the pricing strategy of Mahindra, the scooter is likely to get aggressive price tag as it is coming to rival the frontrunners like Honda Activa, Dio, TVS Jupiter and Hero Maestro. Currently, Mahindra scooter range includes Rodeo RZ, Duro DZ, Kine and Flyte. Although nothing has been said about the launch of the scooter, speculations are that the new 110cc scooter will hit the market by the end of this year.
Mahindra, which is looking to expand its scooter and bike portfolio in India is also expected to launch its Mojo 300, a bike awaited by two-wheeler enthusiasts since 2010. Under the hood, Mojo is expected to draw pack 300cc liquid cooled, 4-stroke single-cylinder engine, which can churn out a power of 27 bhp at 8000 rpm and a peak torque 25 Nm at 6500 rpm, and is likely to come coupled to a six-speed transmission. Other expected features include headlights with DRL (daytime running lights), mudguard and LED tail-light.
In India, the bike will be pitted against Bajaj Pulsar CS, Pulsar SS, Kawasaki Ninja 300R, Honda CBR 250R/300R and KTM Duke 390 and is rumoured to fall in a price range around ₹2 lakh.
In May, Mahindra Two Wheelers reported a 131 percent growth in domestic sales. The company sold 15,878 units in May, as against the 6,858 units in the corresponding month last year.
