This article we will discuss about the Mahindra coverage as regards the two wheeler segment. Their pavilion span across 2,000 sq. m. rocked at the 10th Auto Expo 2010, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
Mahindra has a distinction of being the only Indian automobile company to straddle the road transport ecosystem they showcased wide array of vehicles which included two wheelers, three wheelers, Sports Utility Vehicles, Utility vehicles, Light Commercial Vehicles and trucks. The products showcased echoed the company’s commitment to embrace future technology, innovative automotive solutions while respecting the environment.
Especially, 2009 has been that milestone year for Mahindra & Mahindra as it forayed into the highly competitive two-wheeler market.
The company already made a buzz in the market with new marketing strategies after acquiring the Kinetic Engg. And, should their commitment for addressing consumer interests is well received by Indian consumers, they will in sometime assume a significant place in the fast-growing Indian as well as the global two-wheeler segment.
Mahindra & Mahindra showcased some exciting products at the Auto Expo 2010. The Mahindra 2 Wheelers displayed 2-stroke 125cc concept scooter and a 4-stroke racing-concept 125 cc bike in addition to their selling domestic range of scooters the Mahindra Flyte, Mahindra Duro and the Mahindra Rodeo.
The Mahindra concept bike looked amazing to say the least and has a 125cc power mill which can generate a maximum power and torque of 53 bhp (you’ve read that right) and 32 Nm, respectively. The bike has electric start option and should the specs displayed be believed the bike can touch max speed of 245 kmph; well that means faster than the fastest.
The bike sports digital console and features Brembo brake system in the front and the rear (they are actually mono disc type). As regards the suspension the front is an inverted Paioli fork and the rear a monoshock Paioli fork. With a big fuel tank (13.5-liter capacity) the bike has a wide 1245mm wheel base. Definitely the bike is worth looking forward to.
As for the Mahindra 2 Wheelers concept scooter, it runs on a 2-stroke engine which has 124cc displacement. The engine churns power of 8 hp and generates 9 Nm of peak torque. The scooter is claimed to touch 120kmph of maximum speed. Both the front and the rear are fitted with mono disc type brakes. The scooter has a 7-liter petrol tank and it has auto start and kick start options with automatic transmission drive in its kitty.
The scooter as such looks like a radically styled one and a little offbeat too, but should Mahindra2Wheelers start production of their concept machines, they should well drive away Pulsars and Apaches off the Indian roads; so handsful of work for the new kid in the 2-wheeler market
