Mahindra’s Activa Rival 110cc G101 Scooter Launch in August; May be Segment-Cheapest!

BikeAdvice was the first publication in the country to bust Mahindra’s 110cc G101 scooter when we spotted an initial test mule way back in May last year (here).

Later on and very recently tons of new spyshots of the scooter in production guise have revealed a lot of new details about its design and styling. And now ET Auto shares that Mahindra will launch their 110cc scooter, which is codenamed as G101, during the second week of August this year.

This 110cc scooter will be a more mass market product and the company will be hoping to garner a huge chunk of the segment which is currently dominated by Honda Activa but have seen a lot of new players recently, like the Suzuki Let’s, Yamaha Ray twins and others.

Though its not official, but Mahindra G101 is expected to carry Centuro’s 110cc MCi engine and may produce power and torque of about 8ps and 8Nm respectively. Since it will be mated to a CVT gearbox, mileage is expected to be lesser than Centuro’s 85.4kmpl (ARAI rated). But we still expect class-leading figures somewhere around 65kmpl.

Apart from this, some nifty and innovative features (like the smart key) from Centuro are expected to be carried over definitely. Designwise, G101 will get a few inspirations from Kinetic Blaze and has a nice wide seat. Its design will be all-new unlike the Duro and Rodeo.

Considering how Mahindra prices its products, we expect them to offer it at very competitive prices, possibly segment best! With luring prices and loaded with features, we expect the scooter to be an interesting preposition in this increasingly competitive 110cc segment!
