Mahindra Two Wheelers is readying a more-affordable version of its quarter-litre motorcycle Mojo for the Indian market. New spy shots of what appears to be a re-worked model of Mojo has hit the web, hinting that the company is looking to cut off some features to make it affordable.

The images of Mojo at Lonavala in Maharashtra were shared by RushLane. What is immediately apparent is the single exhaust on the right side, suggesting that the dual exhaust could now become a feature of the top-end variant. It also seems to have missed out on upside-down forks, making way for the conventional telescopic forks.

Apart from this, the bike stays very much within the style of the current model. However, reports suggest that Mojo could also lose the Pirelli Rosso Diablo tyres to keep the price in check and the low-cost bike may use MRF tyres.

Mojo is currently priced at Rs. 1.71 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai). With the changes on-board, Mojo prices could go down by up to Rs. 30,000.

Mojo is likely to remain unchanged when it comes to the engine bits. The tourer, which is powered by a 292cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, can churn out 27bhp at 8,000rpm and 30Nm torque at 5,500rpm.

It competes against the likes of Kawasaki Ninja 300R, Honda CBR 250R/300R and KTM Duke twins in India and comes with a fuel tank capacity of 21 litres. Mojo, which made its India debut in October 2015, has not been able to raise the bar as expected. The changes could be aimed at boosting the sales of the model.
