After playing relentless hide-and-seek with us, there is still no official news from Mahindra about the bike. Mojo has been caught testing on our roads and now there are new details coming up.
The 300 cc naked bike was revealed way back in 2010, and it was speculated that people would see a 2011 launch. The bike drew heavy inspiration from ab enduro theme, and its bug-shaped look courtesy its dual-headlamps gave it an identity of its own.
Now Autocar has reported that the Mahindra Mojo will undergo a transformation in the styling department. Instead of the peculiar design cues, Mahindra Mojo will now sport a more contemporary sculpting. Though the media house hasn’t showcased any images, it is expected that the bike will now feature a reworked fuel tank along with sporty looking fairing panels. Infact, another earlier spotting of the Mahindra Mojo had pointed out that the bike had said goodbye to its twin-headlamp setup (spypic below, credit Indianautosblog.com).
Have Mahindra’s designers finally bowed down to the Great Indian Penchant For Fairings??
Mahindra has already made it clear that the Mojo will use a four-stroke, 292cc, fuel-injected and single-cylinder engine. Its four-valve head will employ dual-overhead camshafts and the liquid-cooled engine shall generate peak power in the region of 25-26bhp, with peak torque of about 2.5kgm. Mahindra Mojo could use top spec upside down front forks and a monoshock rear suspension. For retarding motion, the Mahindra Mojo is equipped with a 320mm front disc and 220mm rear disc brake.
It remains to be seen if Mahindra can price it competitively in the backdrop of Bajaj-KTM’s full frontal assault. While there are no official dates about the launch of the Mahindra Mojo, but expect a launch sometime in this year.
