Mahindra's much-awaited flagship motorcycle, the Mojo 300, is all set to be launched around Diwali and speculations about its price and specifications, apart from detailed spy shots, have been doing the rounds on the Internet.
Now, folks at Motorbeam have released the video review of the motorcycle. The Mojo 300 is less deviated from the original prototype showcased at the 2010 Auto Expo.
The design is quirky with twin headlamps that have a black cowl and daytime running lights positioned above the headlamps. The motorcycle flaunts USD (Up Side Down) forks in dual colour tone and the bars that run under the fuel tank come in golden shade. Additionally, the swing arms are also draped in the same shade.
As expected, the vehicle gets Pirelli Sport Demon tyres mounted on Y-spoke black alloy wheels. The bike tester in the video gives full credit to the tyres for their super grip. However, the brakes aren't up to the mark, according to the review.
The vehicle is fast but not as fast as one would expect a 300cc engine bike to be, describes the video. The main reason for this is the weight, which is more than 165kg.
The Mahindra Mojo 300 is powered by a 296cc liquid cooled, 4-stroke single-cylinder engine that can churn out power of 27bhp at 8,000rpm and a peak torque of segment leading 30Nm instead of the rumoured 25Nm at 6,500rpm.
The review ends on a positive note, saying the motorcycle is comfortable and practical.
