Gusto 125 will compete with Activa 125 and Access & price is expected to be the USP
Barely after a year and few months of the launch of Gusto 110, Mahindra, in an attempt to claim a bigger market share in the automatic scooter segment, has unveiled the Gusto 125 in Lavassa, Pune today. Essentially a bigger engined version of the 110 cc Gusto there is not much to differentiate between the two siblings in terms of design.
Gusto 125 carries a restyled front apron and new snazzy colors and the side body also gains a new badging.
Talking about features, the Gusto 125 carries over the list from the 110 cc version. This includes a height adjustable seat, remote flip key, find me lamps, LED guide lamps, front kick and a quick storage bay under the instrumentation cluster.
Gusto 125 Engine – Specs
This is where the major change is – the bigger 124.57 cc M-tec engine produces 8.5 bhp of maximum power at 7,000 rpm (a gain of 0.5 bhp which peaks 500 rpm earlier) and a peak torque output of 10 Nm at 5,500 rpm (increased by 1 Nm). The saddle height remains the same 770 mm in the upper position and 735 mm in the lower position. Gusto 125 has a ground clearance of 165 mm, fuel tank capacity of 6 liters and a wheelbase of 1275 mm.
Gusto 125 also boasts of body coloured rear view mirrors and black grab rail. The company has not officially revealed the fuel efficiency figures but we do not expect a very significant distance from the 63 kmpl – the rated fuel economy of Gusto 110.
