It appears like Mahindra is finally ready to bring its Mojo sports tourer to the Indian two wheeler market. Reports emerging on the web indicate that the bike has entered its trial production at the company's Pithampur plant near Indore, Madhya Pradesh.
Mahindra Mojo, a bike which made its maiden appearance at the Auto Expo, 2010 is reportedly looking to enter the Indian market by June this year, reported IndianCarsBikes. The company has been testing in various conditions and incorporating changes to the model since its first appearance, and now the latest is that the pilot production of Mojo has started in the country.
The folks at IndianCarsBikes have also managed to get hold on to a new spy shot of Mojo being tested on the public roads, strengthening the belief that the model is ready to hit the market.
For the uninitiated , Mahindra Mojo 300 is expected to get power from a 296cc liquid cooled, 4-stroke single-cylinder engine, which can churn out a power of 27bhp at 8,000rpm and a peak torque 25nm at 6,500rpm, and is likely to come mated to a six-speed transmission.
Mojo is likely to include features like LED daytime-running lights and a new fuel tank. Most importantly, the bike is likely to flaunt USD (Up Side Down) forks and twin mufflers. Other features expected include mudguard, Pirelli Sport Demon tyres mounted on Y-spoke black alloy wheels and LED tail-light. The stopping power of the bike is likely to come from the disc brakes seen on both front and rear wheels.
When launched, Mahindra Mojo will take on the likes of Kawasaki Ninja 300R, Honda CBR 250R/300R and KTM Duke in India and is likely to fall in the price bracket of ₹2 lakh.
