At the Auto Expo, Mahindra confirmed that the entry – level sports bike Mojo 300 would be launched by the end of this year. The launch of Mahindra Mojo 300 has evaded us for far too long years. A report from Rush lane states that the bike has been shown to several dealers across the country and it is implying that it will be entering the showroom soon. Mahindra had first unveiled the Mojo 300 in 2010. At the time of unveiling some motorcycle enthusiasts were disappointed and some were happy. But the Pune based manufacturer had decided to postpone the launch which makes us believe that the company has been continuously working on it.
Coming to the design part, the Mojo 300 has a complete different look compared to the naked motorcycle currently available in the market. The new Mahindra Mojo 300 sports bike will come with features like a new fuel tank, Upside down( USD) forks LED daytime running lights and twin mufflers. It will be fitted with Pirelli tyre mounted on Y-spoke black alloy wheels and an LED taillight. Mahindra’s new offering is likely to carry 300 cc liquid cooled, 4-stroke single-cylinder engine which will churn out a power of 27 bhp at 8000 rpm and a peak torque 25 Nm at 6500 rpm, and is likely to come coupled to a six-speed transmission.
The new Mojo 300 bike is likely to feature disc brakes on front and rear wheels. The revised Mojo is expected to have a redesigned tank and sport fairing panels which will make the motorcycle look more inspiring and aggressive. The machine will have the Ducati electronic fuel injection system which will enhance the performance and at the same time reduce the emission the power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a six-speed gearbox. The new Mojo 300 will also feature a gas charged mono shock, dual exhaust and mirror mounted mirrors.
Once it hits the market, the new Mojo 300 will be rivalling Bajaj Pulsar CS, Pulsar SS, Kawasaki Ninja 300R,Honda CBR 250R/300R and KTM Duke 390. No set prices have been released for the Mojo 300 as yet. Industry experts believe that it should be priced close to Rs 2 lakh which would still make it more affordable than the Ninja or the Honda CBR300R.
