Unveiling the Centuro along with the Pantero at the earliest of 2013, Mahindra Two Wheelers had given a long irritating period of almost 6 months to the commuter riders for its launch. Being finally launched, the Centuro is tagged Rs. 45,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). This is the second motorcycle of the firm to be launched this year.
Introducing the Centuro, Mahindra aims commuter riders who are looking for a fuel efficient bike at reasonable price. An ex-showroom price of Rs.45,000 is certainly a surprising tag. Because the Centuro is packed with a good number of features which are not even seen in middle-weight sports bikes.
Remote 128-bit encrypted flip-key with LED lights, Central locking system, Anti-theft system with an engine immobiliser, Guide lamps, Find me lights, Fully digital instrument cluster with a digital tachometer, speedometer, fuel gauge, trip meter and clock, Choke on the handle bar, and LED pilot and tail lamps are the major highlighting features of the Centuro.
The Centuro comes with the same 106.7cc, Single Cylinder, 4-stroke, Air cooled, Mci-5 engine, that is used in the Pantero. It delivers a gorgeous power of 8.5 bhp @ 7500 rpm, and a respectful torque of 8.5 Nm @ 5500 rpm. Its engine is coupled with a Constant mesh 4 Speed transmission with a gear shift pattern of N1234.
Though the bike is equipped with a lot of impressive features, Mahindra has put a lop hole by leaving no optional version of front disc brake model. A front disc brake variant would have spotted the Centuro as the most precious model in the entry level commuter class.
The Muscular Golden Ribs is the key attraction of the bike for those who stare at the Centuro for the first time. Well, we can't find much greatness in the design. The headlight with find me lights seems pretty ordinary. Still, considering as an entry level machine which is very reasonably priced, it is all right for anyone.
The Indian riders never choose a commuter bike for its features, quality, or for any other stuffs. They select the bike keeping the main criteria mileage as anthem. Yup! There we are with the Centuro which ensures an unbelievable mileage of 85.4 kmpl under standard conditions.
As the entry level commuter class is of a good number of machines, there is no scarcity for rivals as well. Hero Passion X Pro, Honda Dream Yuga, Honda Dream Neo, and Suzuki Hayate are the key competitors of the Centuro.
The first 10,000 bookings will have a flat discount of Rs. 1000.
