Confirmed since 2010 and spotted testing in the country several times, Mahindra Two Wheelers' (MTWL) much awaited Mojo 300 has once again hit the web through a new set of spy shots.
The Mojo 300, a bike which has been in the news for quiet some time now is expected to make its entry into the market during this festive season. The latest set of spy shots was posted by the folks at RushLane and in the images the test mule of Mojo is seen with light camouflage.
The key specifications of the Mahindra's new offering would be its USD (Up Side Down) forks and twin mufflers mudguard. Under the hood, the Mahindra's new offering is expected to carry 300 cc liquid cooled, four-stroke single-cylinder engine, which can churn out a power of 27 bhp at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque 25 Nm at 6,500 rpm, and is likely to come coupled to a six-speed transmission. The stopping power of the bike will be provided by the disc brakes seen on both front and rear wheels. Mojo 300 is expected to get Pirelli Sport Demon tyres mounted on Y-spoke black alloy wheels.
In India, the bike will be pitted against Bajaj Pulsar CS, Pulsar SS, Kawasaki Ninja 300R, Honda CBR 250R/300R and KTM Duke 390 and is likely to carry a price tag around ₹2 lakh. Mahindra might launch the bike in the domestic market anytime from now in order to get the benefit of the upcoming festive season.
Apart from Mojo, a new 110cc segment scooter and a new model of Centuro are also expected from the company in the coming months.
The new Centuro with disc brake will be called O1-D. It 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.
