Talking of Mojo 300, the bike which first appeared at the 2010 Auto Expo is expected to reach the market around this festive season. The bike has been spied testing in the country numerous times already, indicating its arrival soon to the market.
Under the hood, the Mahindra's new offering is expected to carry 300 cc liquid cooled, 4-stroke single-cylinder engine, which can churn out a power of 27 bhp at 8000 rpm and a peak torque of 25 Nm at 6,500 rpm, and is likely to come coupled to a six-speed transmission.

On the other hand, Mahindra's upcoming Centuro with disc brake will be called O1-D. The motorbike is likely to be powered by the same Micro Chip Ignited 5-Curve (MCi-5) engine which can churn out a peak power of 8.5 hp, a peak torque of 8.5 Nm and will feature find me lamps, guide me home lamps, LED pilot lamps and engine immobilizer.
