Alright, honestly, I am so excited about this bike that it is really difficult for me to type this due to increased heart beat rate. It’s 10.15 PM here and I am tired after my evening swim and a heavy dinner, but yet… how can I not post this information? I am not sure whether other other blogs have published this information, but I haven’t found any yet! I am really excited to be one of the first to bring this news to you!

I think this is an important moment in the Indian Motorcycling Industry. A market where Hero Honda and Bajaj are dominating, it is a bold move by Mahindra. I have high expectations from them and I wish it does something like what Apple iPhone did to the mobile phone market. So let us put a pause to my blah blah and lets see what Mahindra has to say about this bike:

Introducing Mahindra Mojo 300cc…

Repeat to yourself – This is not a supercar. It is only a motocycle that feels like one. It’s the powerful ideas inside the Mojo that really give this bike its car – like traits. Like an engine with DOHC technology and 4 valves for better, more efficient combustion.

The revolutionary Ducati Energia Electronic Fuel Injection system that knows exactly how much fuel is needed, when.

And of course, an advanced liquid cooling technology you’ll find in the most modern cars.

But the innovation doesn’t stop there. You’ll also find India’s largest petal disc brakes and radial tyres on this vehicle. And a seriously intimidating design that’s nothing like you’ve ever seen on Indian roads. All this, built on the shoulders of the decades old Mahindra legacy.

Mahindra Mojo Features

300 cc, liquid cooled engine: Brace yourself for the thrills of this single cylindered, 300 cc powerplant. It makes this vehicle without doubt the purest, most direct expression of riding on Indian roads. Propel yourself to top speed in just a few riveting seconds. And leave insignificant rivals behind as you scream past to glory. Of course, the advanced liquid cooling technology keeps this hot head under control at all times. A very common feature, in cars, that is. It doesn’t just deliver better cooling efficiency, but allows for a smoother, more powerful and more streamlined engine.

DOHC technology with 4 valves: The nimble, responsive power of this engine comes courtesy of the double overhead camshafts that are at work inside.

They facilitate the installation of additional valves result in better combustion. Giving you more firepower to burn up the road.

Ducati Energia EFI: It is the brains behind the captivating rush the Mojo delivers. This state-of-the-art fuel injection system has been borrowed straight from the core of World Championship racing bikes. Its microprocessor calculates in real time, the air-fuel mixture required for optimum vehicle performance.

For example, on a gradient, it senses the engine losing power. As a response, more fuel is injected into the combustion chamber to sustain the momentum. The result: greater performance, greater mileage and a greater thrill.

Inverted shock absorbers: Forgive yourself for thinking they are fitted wrong. After all such suspensions are rarely seen on any bike. In fact, you’ll find them only on the purest racing breeds.

Unlike the regular suspensions, these ones are equipped with inverted forks. So the heavier components are directly supported by the pivot and not the wheels. This leads to a sturdier suspension and stable yet responsive driving dynamics.

Gas charged Monoshock rear suspensions: Indian roads, meet your worst nightmare. This single rear shock absorber has the uncanny ability of making rough terrain virtually nonexistent.

How? Trenched into the core is a special gas chamber that’s capable of altering the effective spring rate and dampening as per the demands of the terrain. Giving you physics-defying stabilisation and surgical precise handling.

Radial calliper breaking technology: Now, stop with authority. With disc brakes that are fortified with radial callipers similar to that in cars.

This technology is responsible for the total elimination of the torsion flex problem that is usually caused by conventional callipers. The outcome: the conversion of smooth potent acceleration into a smoother braking sequence. Within milliseconds.

Tear drop design: Nature is imbued with the fundamentals of aerodynamics. And nature is the very essence of the Mojo’s design.

This bike is sculpted in the shape of a tear drop, a form conducive to extreme speeds, it is so streamlined, it cuts through the wind at angles that minimize any resistance. It’s probably why this design is adopted by superbike manufacturers across the world.

Double barrelled exoframe: Perhaps no other bike on Indian roads symbolizes the essence of naked like this one. Just one look and you’ll notice how the Mojo has been stripped down to the bare essentials.

Observe how the twin tubular frame juts out from either side in a seriously intimidating fashion. Giving it the road presence of an exotic muscular car.

Twin retro headlamps with pilot LED’s: Retro meets ultramodern in the Mojo. With twin headlamps that think they are floodlights. They ooze style from every pore. Elegantly accommodating a pair of advanced LED pilot lamps right above. These bulbs are stingy when it comes to power consumption. And generous when it comes to illumination. So the next time you venture into the night, you’ll venture out into the day.

Dual Exhausts: The Mojo is all sport. Its exhausts are like rocket tails rearing to take you into orbit. One on each side, they bear a shocking resemblance to every superbike you’ve ever drooled over. But these exhausts don’t just beef up the already dominating looks. They allow for faster release of gasses, improving engine performance. And introduce you to the true sound of exhilaration.

Lightweight alloy wheels: This bike has superbike written all over it. It comes fitted with racing style alloy wheels to maximize the oomph of the vehicle.

They are lightweight yet strong, and dissipate heat much faster, resulting in superior performance.

Digital display: Want to know how you are doing? The sophisticated display console will be glad to help. It gives you all the vital stats with deadly accuracy.

Like speed, fuel gauge, rpm and time. In fact, it even tells you when to shift gears. And comes with a cool blue backlight that looks really hot.

India’s widest rare tyres with tubeless technology: It’s another first from this bike, 150 mm wide, rear radials that literally hug the road. They deliver rock solid stability, no matter what the speed. They are also tubeless, eliminating any chance of a high speed blowout.

LED tail lights: Danger comes without warning. But the news of your braking won’t. The Mojo’s advanced LED tail lights are visible from miles away. Giving the traffic in your rear view mirror ample time to stop.

Mirror mounted indicators: Here’s a feature that’s straightaway a departure from the ordinary.

And a big leap towards safety. Indicators that are mounted on the back of the rear view mirrors. They’re easily visible to the traffic but hard to stop staring at.

India’s largest petal disc brakes: To minimize human error, we maximised the margins. These massive 320 mm disc brakes are India’s largest. With a petal design that makes them self-cleansing in nature. It allows them to remove dust, mud particles and water off the surface automatically. Resulting in flawless braking under any conditions. These brakes also dissipate heat faster, have a longer life and come with radial calipers to further enhance performance. So while you’re able to thunder down the road, stopping is lightning fast too.

  1. I must say that you have a great blog and fast too.
    At first when i saw the homepage i thought that you copied the info from motoroid but to my surprise you have way more info and pics than motoroid
    Thanks from me

  2. Congrats…, Bike Advice you are first one to write about this bike…,
    cheers to all your team..,you guys are doing a great job keep it up.
    Bikes looking awesome.
    I think from technical point of view this bikes going to rule the road..

  3. sexxxxxxxxxxxy bike……mahindra has come up with a unique and awesome bike that india has never seen before… u mahindra………the thing to watch will be pricing…hope its in the reach of the people……it’ll surely sweep the land out of the other competitors in the old indian market….watch out INDIA……

  4. first congrats to author for such a brilliant coverage!!best i have read and that too before was as exiting as a teenager watching a XXX movie for first time.
    well Mahindra has done it like no other indian company has done before.they are 4 wheeler manufacturers and surely knows how innovation are done (remember microhybrid in scorpio?).i am completely impressed by this model and moreover feel mahindra will give serious competition to international players like Honda,yamaha,suzuki coming days.just waiting for prices to be announced.
    I guess rajiv bajaj wont have breakfast today.

  5. its different…radical….
    tank is different compared to all bikes in india..
    and hi-tech too

    question is which bikes does it compete with…??

  6. hi in my point of view the bike outlook is quite good for indian roads because of less fairings but im thinking about
    the spare parts cost and mainly how mahindra will going to take care customers in terms of service and customer satisfication?

  7. Marvellous creation from mahindra going to give a very tough competition for other manufacturers for sure will buy mahindra mojo after getting test ride reviews from your site

  8. wow indian bike taken to next level…..bajaj hero honda honda tvs yamaha have been wacked by mahindra…true italian style street fighter bike…..this bike beats every indian performance bike in every segment…i can only say wow…

  9. Like all other readers, I must always congratulate you on such a great coverage. Thank you bringing all the details.

    The bike looks top notch. Slated for success!


    The bike is really hot and looks macho. it will make other manufacturer to think seriously to compete with this. But i feel maintanace & service part will have to be studied before purchase. If mahindra is able to satisfy customers on this, no doubt, they will be on top


  11. the ultimate performance bike to hit the indian roads…being made-in-india, it will also cost much less than similar imported bikes since it does not have to pay the hefty import customs duty…i get a feel that that the yamaha fz-series and pulsar 220 would be the biggest losers..

  12. Bike Advice, Ilove u.

    Thanks for the update, the bike is cool, damn so nice features, I bet Ninja and Pulsar 220 with left alone in the darkness.

  13. Good start by Mahindra.. but I seriously doubt if it can be priced around the speculated one i.e 1.5 – 2.0 lakhs range.. for all the technology on offer, it might be priced well above 2 lakhs.. similar to Ninja.

  14. Hi Deepak,
    No doubt you have done a grt job with a very less time.. I am very exicted to know the price and expected date to release..

    pls let us ALL know about the price…

  15. tech specs are promising but looks is so diffrent.possibly will create “like it or hate it”.but surly if priced competitivly then give good sales numbers.needless to say mahindra tried to do remarkable job like its 4-wheeler company.its a new player in industry of 2-wheelers so the old companies shold learn from it.

  16. Your blog is fast ….
    it would be better if u reply to our queries soon ….

    I want to know which is better …

    Suzuki sling shot or Honda stunner or Pulsar 135ls

    plz tell me …

  17. It’s so ugly, Horrible tank, disproportionate head light. No where close to a ducatti / Buell. the aerial view of the bike has no proper dimensions.
    tested in Italy, i think the Italians don’t know our road condition :-).
    Lets see how this bike fairs 🙂

  18. I feel this bike looks OVERDONE, the headlights totally spoil the front look and they don’t even deliver 35 watts each, even pulsar220dtsi has 55w x 2. They could have gone for a single round dome or angular dome. And it has too much of Bling, too much show. It looks like it’s done in a hurry. The bike is made in such a way only some colours complement it’s design. some make my eyes bleed. Nevertheless the other specs are impressive. Looking forward to official release of these big bikes.

  19. Mojo Rocks…!!! Hats to Mahindra by making such a product and launched in premium segment of 300cc at the 1st entry itself..!!
    it seems to be 1st 300 cc bile that an Indian company have ever produced by making entry move in the market of bike segment.. BAJAJ where r u..????
    The looks are massive and amazing ….that can be noticed easily by looking at the overall design:delighting tank shape with the angle made at front forks and at back seating level..,attractive n unique headlights…the two long pipes mounted towards engine part Not the least priovided with 2 exhustec-silencer which have been well shaped on 1st time of any indian bike….which is the most appealing part we have to say…!!!
    FULL marks to MAHINDRA R & D team on designing such a wonderful bike that everyone would be in love to see..on indian roads..!! no doubt with the latest technology withhuge amount of power…

    See They are leading here :Mahindra:unpredicted n silnt launch that has surprised everyone…[Amir Khan Brand ambass…r..the right choice]

    infact MUST have done counter attack to current existing leading riavals of bike manufactures in india …
    MAINly the BAJAJ…They might feel sleepless knights defintely for next few days..although they have KTM launches in heir plate..!!

    The lesson from this MOJO launch of Mahindra, that BAJAJ shoud learn is …Let’s think about people 1st,their demand of generation which is perfectly studied and implemented by MAHINDRA…!!!!

    Now BAJAJ should learn what happens if u make waited people of so long i.e.after pulsar premium segment….and providing DELAYED upgrades on EVERY bikes to sustain own position only in the market …and thus made the people to put extra money unnecessarily in each upgrades..
    This i guess they did only to give tough fight that Yamaha planned 1st similary entered in the market with laucnhes of FZ and R15..after every launch made by BAJAJ..

    and for last few months dominated by HONDA by launching attractive people’s bike after making study over BAJAJ and YAMAHA…[BOTH were so BUSY in playing themselve that could not predict the THREAT of MAHINDRA’s MOJO]

    Similar theory is followed by MAHINDRA here that they got succeeded by making their MARKET Study and proper homework DONE into replicated into MOJO…DECENT MACHINE..offcourse youths machine..!!!

    Being BAJAJ’s die hard fan..I would suggest BAJAJ.get move away from and to keep eye on YAMAHA n HONDA..their theory..and should concentrate on THEIR OWN belif and read PEOPLE’s mind so could translate DECENT launches on TIME to TIME with massive looks and features…..similar to MAHINDRA.
    otherwise BAJAJ gone lose market shares soon …as we seeing for last year captured by Yamaha 1st, then HOnda and now gone be Mahindra.
    Suzuki unfortunatley taken logn time to come up with such a massive launches to indian market and coun’t produce that much space to themselves that Mahindra gone soon capture/make..This might be the right example to BAJAJ..!!!

    Now I see KTM 125 duke,2010 auto expo pune based youth designed SOO bike… launces ASAP to compete with MOJO…to FIGHT back…

    otherwise Raaii^ BAJAJ has to say “Mojo hi MOJO” BOLO …song in coming future…!!! 🙂

  20. Love this report. Thanks!
    I believe Mahindra has truly given (performance loving)Indians what we’ve been crying for. The styling is radical and the engine looks powerful enough. Of course, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. That’s where you(Bikeadvice) come in with grueling tests.
    The Italian influence is quite evident in the beautiful lines, although I’m not sure if the tank’s gonna be comfortable. Anyway, its a step in the right direction. Waiting for Road-tests. 😀

  21. Guys no offence but I am really disappointed by the looks of Mahindra Mojo. I really had high expectations from Mahindra, but I am impressed with the technology borrowed from the Italians though. The frame itself is Ducati inspired.The bike’s look gives an impression “DESIGNED and FABRICATED in THE BACKYARD GARRAGE”. Why can’t the R & D guys from Mahindra design an original Indian bike that is completly Indian to the core and good looking. The overall design looks cheap for this high perfomance bike. I will give an update when I get my hands on the bike.

  22. Im putting on hold my bike purchase for this one, the silver version is just SICK! OMG! A bigger tank design would have made me kill myself with over excitement lol . Im just hoping the bike is actually Massive ,pictures can be misleading .The wait is ON PPL ! woot! woot!

  23. this bike is designed is such way so that it remains stable during high speed and… its looking hot .,.. just see it on road dude it has high speed with smooth acc… guys u r missing a ride of life time if u dont go for it

  24. Hats off to Mahindra for launching a bike in this category.
    It was difficult for them to conquer the 150cc segment. Strategy is good. Time has come that we start buying Indian products ,instead of going for Honda’s
    Lets see their service network and quality of products used.

  25. although the bike is quite impressive in looks i find only one flaws in the bike i.e. Mirror mounted indicators. no bikers would like to keep the mirror on when riding the streets. would it be difficult to remove without spoiling the electrical system.

  26. Very well thought for an eyesore! This is the cheapest design tactic by any standard. The tank shape is clearly terrible and the colors never match this bike. And the tail end reminds me of a tadpole. The headlights are not even worth mentioning. There was even no need for a front visor if they were gonna do this. They killed it. It looks like the R&D split up into numerous groups and each of them picked a part they deemed nice and finally the factory workers put them together. Feels like they were in a hurry and added parts as they went. Total destruction of a good idea. Oh oh I almost forgot to mention the copper color used in the frame that took the final blow on the project. Thanks Mahindra for delivering a dead baby. And the name; don’t even make me start on that. Ridiculous!

  27. Nice post.
    The upside down front shock absorbers looks cool,but this is india and every one knows what type of roads we are having,muddy and dusty which will make the shock absorber rods[which goes inside] dirty hence possibilities of absorbers getting destroyed[with mud and dust] increases.
    The headlamps are really awesome and resembles Triumph speed triple.
    The rear tire 150/60 hmnnn really big and great.
    Fuel tank looks really like ducatizz.
    Price is ok too.
    and at last i wanna say the days are gone when people use to say “yr bajaj hai ya fir hero honda tab he kharidna warna nahi”its not like that these days,we all at present have experts,engineers,some awesome minds and they can do anything.So go for Mahindra Mojo guys.

  28. hey this is tarun
    awsome .. definitely a diffrent disign of bike will sooon come in market. i think mojo will be sucssesful to appears its diffrent look . and this bike has more power as compare to other bikes in the market, and the super bike also help to sell its lower segment bike stallio. gr8 marketing ambassador amir khan . to reliability upper version mojo..
    but i dont like name of this bike and i thike its petrol tank could be more stylish as i see. so keep it up m $ m

  29. “Mahindra has delayed the launch of the bike to 2011.The model which we saw during the launch was a prototype model and not the final production model”, This was what i found when i was searching for latest news about mojo

    • Ouch !!! now that hurts.
      I have (sort of) fallen in love with his one.
      I do hope all the specifications remain the same…
      and I certainly hope they dont add a saree guard too !!! LOL 😛

  30. great innovation by mahindra atleast they tried to bring out some new things in the market unlike bajaj addind plastics everytime to upgrade a bike thanks for the info pal,nice looking bike .

  31. hi..
    But colours should be developed..
    If the mirror is attached with head light scoop, like folding type and single mr 250 sylincer is fixed will be, much more greater……. If it spoked wheel also good. i lik spoked wheels……..

    But one thing i can say it rocks on road…

  33. who the nonsense designed the headlights and the front portion?? it looks so weired like a monkey from front!!! petrol tanks should not be flat like this to give a look of 100 cc bikes…it dsnt worth rs 1,75,000..

  34. Try to reduce the weight and compression ratio . because it may reduce the sales of bike for its poor fuel efficiency . try to increase the power because 26 bhp is nothing for 300 cc engine too poor. or reduce the cc. even price should not be high because its more competitive outside
