Mojo’s Engine is Lighter than Duke 250’s; 9 Bits Nobody Told You So Far [Exclusive]

If the first half of the year belonged to the Pulsars, the second is wide open and we have a major player here – Mahindra Mojo! After 5+ years of development, the bike is finally set to be launched this month (most probably 16th) and she sure looks a cracker on paper. It is being promoted as a tourer and we will be riding it soon to know how good it is on the long open highways…

Amidst all this we have got hold of Mojo’s service manual which lists all its specifications, including the ones nobody has told you till now…

First the generic specs…

  • Mojo gets a 294.7 cc single cylinder, liquid cooled DOHC engine producing 26.82 bhp of maximum power at 8,000 rpm and 30 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm.
  • Mojo is a bigger motorcycle than the CBR250R. It is 2,100 mm long, 890 mm wide, and has a height of 1,165 mm along with a 1465 mm wheelbase. In comparison, CBR250R is 70 mm smaller, 170 mm narrower and 38 mm shorter.


  • The seat height of Mojo is 815 mm and it has a nice ground clearance of 173.5 mm.
  • Being a tourer, the Mojo is not exactly light and has a kerb weight (with 90 per cent fuel) of 182 kg. The USP of Mojo is its massive 21 litre fuel tank.
  • Mojo gets a multiplate wet clutch and a 6 speed constant mesh gearbox.
  • The front head lamp gets two 35 watt halogen bulbs which are a downer.
  • The engine’s rev counter is at 1,500 (+/- 50) rpm at idle.
