It was recently paid a lot of attention when the Italian firm, Vespa cut the price of its only model, the LX125 in India. Now the news is spreading out that one of the major two wheeler manufacturers of India, Mahindra Two Wheelers has also slashed price on its scooter, the Duro DZ. Now the Duro DZ starts at Rs. 54,199 (ex-showroom Delhi). This shows a price cut of around Rs. 3000. The new price tag was quoted none other than on the official website of Mahindra Two Wheeler company.
Succeeding the path of its predecessor, the Duro, Mahindra unveiled the Duro DZ at the 2012 New Delhi Auto Expo and later launched for public. The scooter wasn't that success as the company expected. So the consortium was forced to offer a slight reduction in the pricing. With this price cut the company hope bigger boost in the coming months.
Mahindra Duro DZ is run by a 124.6 cc, 4 stroke engine, which is developed in the Pune Mahindra R & D Centre. The engine is capable enough to produce a maximum power of 6.0 kW @ 7000 rpm and a gorgeous torque of 9.0 Nm @5500 rpm. The top speed of the scooter is 80 kmph.
Thanks to the advanced telescopic suspension, the scooter makes even the toughest tracks so leisure and funny. It is a real challenge to its rivals who offer only ordinary suspensions which fail continuously in the Indian roads. As the front is equipped with telescopic, the rear moves on with hydraulic suspension.
To ensure a better mileage at this petrol-hikes circumstance, Mahindra has installed the Advanced Dual Curve Digital Ignition Engine, which works according to the load proportion. The overall mileage of the Duro DZ is 45 kmpl. After Vespa LX125, the Mahindra Duro DZ has the biggest fuel tank - 6.5 litre. This makes even long drives other than commuting in just city roads.
The Duro DZ is available in attractive and dazzling colors - Royal Purple, Supreme Silver, Derby Red, Pear White, Fiery Black, Cappuccino Brown and Mystique Grey.The major rivals of the scooter are Suzuki Access, Swish, Honda Activa, TVS Wego and Vespa LX125.
Recently Mahindra came back to the motorcycle production by unveiling the Pantero and the Centuro. Both bikes are aiming commuter riders who care economical bikes at cheap rates. Mahindra hopes these bikes will do good business for the consortium.
Just like Vespa, Mahindra also cut the price of Duro DZ in order to achieve its target.
