Mahindra 2 Wheelers' upcoming 110cc segment scooter was spied again in the country, indicating that the company is gearing up for aggressive launch in India.
Codenamed G101, Mahindra's new scooter has been in the news from quite some time now. The latest spy shots of the scooter have been posted on IndiancarBikes. In the images, the scooter is seen clad in black cloth, thus revealing very little details of the upcoming offering of Mahindra.
However, from the image, it looks like the new scooter will have ample leg room. The scooter will come with a unisex design, which is similar to Honda Activa and Jupiter Sport. The front part of the scooter looks inspired by Blaze scooter and is likely to have a new instrument console, an analogue fuel gauge and archetypal switchgear.
Previous reports had suggested that the new scooter of Mahindra is likely to wear MRF Nylogrip tyres and is expected to get telescopic front forks. On the mechanical front, the new scooter is likely to come with a single cylinder air cooled four stroke 106.7cc engine, which can pump in a power of 8.5 PS and peak torque of 8.5 Nm.
Further details of the scooter are not known yet. Mahindra already has a number of offering in the scooter segment; however the company could not make much impact in the scooter segment like Honda. The upcoming scooter is likely to take on the like of Honda Activa, Dio, TVS Jupiter and Hero Maestro. The new offering of Mahindra bears an enormous responsibility of contributing in the growth of the company in Indian the market. Currently, Mahindra scooter range includes Rodeo RZ, Duro DZ, Kine and Flyte.
In May, Mahindra Two Wheelers reported a 131 per cent growth in domestic sales. The company sold 15,878 units in May, as against the 6,858 units in the corresponding month last year. During the same period, Mahindra Two Wheelers, a part of $16.5 billion Mahindra group, also exported 946 units of two wheelers.
Mahindra is also expected to launch its Mojo 300, a bike awaited by two-wheeler enthusiasts since 2010. Under the hood, Mojo is expected to draw pack 300cc liquid cooled, 4-stroke single-cylinder engine, which can churn out a power of 27 bhp at 8000 rpm and a peak torque 25 Nm at 6500 rpm, and is likely to come coupled to a 6-speed transmission. Other features expected include headlights with DRL (daytime running lights), mudguard and LED tail-light.
