India's one of the largest automobile industries, Mahindra and Mahindra Limited owned, Mahindra Two Wheeler Limited unveiled two motorcycles, the Centuro and the Pantero. It is the second entry of Mahindra Two Wheeler in to the motorcycle industry after 2010. Earlier, Mahindra launched the Stallio in 2010. But it was a huge failure due to some gear transmission problem entangled with it.
The all new motorcycles, the Pantero and the Centuro come with a new 106.7 cc, Single Cylinder, 4 Stroke, Air cooled, MCI-5 (Micro Chip Ignited 5-Curve) engine, which is developed by Mahindra Two Wheeler in its R & D centre in Pune. Both bikes produce a maximum power of 8.5 PS @ 7500 rpm and a maximum torque of 8.5 Nm @ 5500 rpm. Aiming commuter riders and to simplify city drive, the gear box is mated with a 4 speed constant mesh transmission system. The two wheeler is blessed with both electric and kick start.
"Our pricing strategy is all obvious from value propositions, and it does take competition into account. We will make sure that the proposition the customer gets will be appropriate to the value that we are providing to the customer. Our pricing will neither be a deterrent nor a show-stopper. According to our research, the market is not looking for a 'me too product' like the market leaders, they are looking for options and that is exactly what we are trying to serve through both these models," said Anoop Mathur, the President of Mahindra Two Wheelers.
Mahindra's two new bikes are blessed with a lot of features unlike the other opponents in their class. The successor of the Stallio, the Pantero is placed in the eco-commuter motorcycle segment. The bike is featured with fully digital instrument cluster with a digital tachometer, choke on the handle bar, LED pilot and tail lamps. Loaded with speedometer, fuel gauge, trip meter and clock, the digital instrument cluster helps to get known things at a glance. Though it is an entry level motorcycle, it has a ground clearance of 165mm. The highlight of the Pantero is its unbelievable ARAI mileage figure of 79.5 kmpl.
Mahindra Pantero is available in four variants:
T-1 (Self Start/Cast Alloy Wheels/ Digital Console)
T-2 (Self Start/ Cast Alloy Wheels/ Analog Console)
T-3 (Kick Start/ Cast Alloy Wheels/ Analog Console)
T-4 (Kick Start/ Spoke/ Analog Console).
The available colors of the Pantero are fiery red, sterling silver, blazing black and cool black.
Meanwhile, the Centuro is sparking out with tons of features those could be missing even in premium motorcycles. It's the first Indian commuter motorcycle to be mated with remote 128-bit encrypted flip-key with LED lights, central locking system, anti-theft system with an engine immobiliser, guide lamps and find me lights to check out the bike in a crowded area. The other specifications, features and details of the Centuro are yet to be revealed. However, Mahindra hasn't officially revealed the price of both the Pantero and the Centuro. Still, these bikes are expected to be tagged between Rs.45,000 and Rs.55,000. The Pantero is expected to be launched in the market at first.
