Additional Details about Mahindra

Mahindra Two Wheelers Limited (MTWL), a subsidiary group of Mahindra & Mahindra Limited (M&M), is a scooter and motorcycle manufacturer. The MTWL was founded in 2008 when M&M acquired 80% stake of Kinetic Motor Company Limited (KMCL) for Rs.100 crore. Later MTWL signed a contract with a Taiwanese automobile company, Sanyang Industry Company (SYM), who was the former partner and technical assistant of KMCL, for technical assistance. Then MTWL partnered with an Italian firm, Engines Engineering for product design and research help. The reports notice that KMCL still has 20% stake in the venture.

Soon after buying the stake of KMCL, MTWL forayed in to the scooter market for the first time by unveiling its first two wheeled machine, the SYM Flyte, which is the successor of Kinetic Flyte, in 2009. The scooter debuted for MTWL with a 124.6 cc 4-stroke engine. The engine could generate a maximum output up to 8.0 bhp @ 7000 rpm and a maximum torque of 9.0 nm @ 5500 rpm. The top speed of the machine was 80 kmph. Mahindra offered 130mm dia drum brakes at both ends. The fuel tank capacity of the scooter was 4.5 litres. The lightweight machine weighed only 106 kg. Later, Mahindra upgraded the scooter and the scooter is now known as the Flyte SYM.

In 2010, Mahindra signed with Bollywood Superstar, Aamir Khan and appointed him as the brand ambassador of MTWL. In the same year, the consortium unveiled a 300 cc motorcycle, the Mojo and a commuter bike, the Stallio in Mumbai. The Mojo grabbed the whole attention of media and was filled in presses. The bike was mated with a 292 cc, Single Cylinder, Liquid Cooled, 4 Valves - Direct Drive, SI engine. The naked machine could be powered to a maximum of 25 bhp @ 8500 rpm and a gigantic torque quantity of 24 N.m @ 7000 rpm. The gear box was blessed with a 6 speed constant mesh transmission. Nevertheless, there is no official notification about the launch of the Mojo apart from the officials. Still, MTWL launched the Stallio by the end of 2010. However, it was a pure failure and disappointed every motorcycle maniacs. It is assumed that the problem with its gear transmission caused its pathetic collapse.

At present, MTWL has 5 scooters in their store - Rodeo RZ, Duro DZ, Duro, Flyte and Kine. Moreover, the Stallio is going to be relaunched as the Pantero by January 2013.
