Mahindra Two Wheelers launched its flagship motorcycle, Mojo, with an introductory price of Rs 1.58 lakh in the country on 15 October.
The deliveries just started and Mahindra is gearing up to enter the premium motorcycle segment abroad, which includes Latin America, South East Asia and North Africa, with its newly launched Mojo model reports Economic Times.
"Export is a good opportunity. We are certainly looking at exporting Mojo to markets in Latin America, South East Asia and North Africa," Rajesh Jejurikar, M&M President and Chief Executive (Farm Equipment & Two Wheeler Division), told PTI.
The new motorcycle's primary focus will remain in the country. "By the middle of next year, we should start the exports," Jejurikar added.
