The Mojo may have been a ‘Mughal-e-Azam‘ of motorcycles and with no confirmed launch date still from the company, it may not be on top of your buying list but what if Mahindra pulls up a surprise and launches the motorcycle at shocker prices?
In a very interesting revelation, we have got the first official hints of how Mahindra M-A-Y price its Mojo in India. Actually, Mahindra Two Wheelers has exported its complete lineup of motorcycles to UAE for a possible exhibition at some automobile expo, which also includes its upcoming Mojo.
And according to the data shown at Zauba.com, the company has entered per unit prices of its motorcycles and the shock comes by looking at the value of Mojo which is mentioned as Rs 1,25,500! We sat back and analyzed the possible pricing by comparing it with the prices listed here and original prices of already available motorcycles.
So, Centuro (disc brake) has a difference of about 19 percent as compared to the prices mentioned here and the value listed in the export shipment. Similarly, this difference is about 12 percent for Centuro Rockstar and Gusto VX.
If we consider a similar price increment to Mojo’s final price, we land at a very surprising under Rs 1.5 Lakh ex-showroom Delhi costing, which would definitely be a shocker for the kind of equipment the motorcycle will come loaded with.
According to the initial specs Mahindra revealed back in 2010, Mojo was powered by a 292cc liquid cooled 4-stroke single cylinder engine capable of producing 26PS of power and 25Nm of torque. We are sure the final production-spec Mojo will have better figures.
Apart from that, it was equipped with 6-speed gearbox, Pirelli Sports Demon tyres, disc brakes (front and rear), y-spoke black alloy wheels, integrated LED turn indicators, dual silencers etc. We continue to see most of this equipment on the test mules that are doing duty at this moment. Add to that, a few spotters have signaled speeds of 150 kmph of test mules and we already know and like the new muscular design.
So, will Mojo come at shocker prices? Will Mojo be a real reckoning in the 250-300cc segment? We will love to see that become true, but only if Mahindra decides to launch it here, before our kids grow older!
