You might be waiting for the upcoming 300cc motorcycle of Mahindra and expecting to see what exactly the company has already unveiled. Since the announcement of the Mojo in 2010, we have been waiting to see the machine on road. Initially, the firm said that the bike would launch in 2011. 2011 is no more. 2012 has also seen its end. Well, it's 2013 half-done. Now the rumours scribe that Mahindra will be launching a refreshed Mojo in months. That is the Mojo may launch either by the end of 2013 or by the very first of 2014.
The updated Mojo will be extremely different from the pictures those are all over the websites, magazines, and news papers. It has been rumored that the Mojo will be spotted with a reworked fuel tank, and sporty fairings. This will give a total difference in appearance and will make the bike stood-out among the other naked machines in its class.
It is expected that the upcoming Mojo will be featured with some of the unique functions which have been installed in the lately launched Centuro. And features such as key fog, anti theft alarm, find me lamps, guide me lamps and muscular golden ribs which are seen in the Centuro will surely add more value to the machine.
Well, there will be no alterations to the engine. It will come up with the same 292cc, Single Cylinder, Liquid Cooled, 4 Valves, Direct Drive, SI engine. It produces a peak power of 26 bhp @ 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 24 Nm @ 7000 rpm. Its engine is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission.
A 320mm Petal Disc Brake at front and a 220mm Petal Disc Brake at rear power up the braking. Along with the an Inverted fork Telescopic hydraulic-damped front suspension and a 120 mm stroke Horizontally mounted Mono Shock rear suspension, the bike steps to premium class.
Once the Mojo launches, it will have to compete with the much applauded KTM 390 Duke. Mahindra will have to sweat a lot to kill the stake of the class leading machine. The 390 Duke comes with a powerful 373.2cc, Single-cylinder, 4-stroke, spark-ignition engine, liquid-cooled engine. It generates a max power of 43.5 Ps @ 9000 Rpm and a max torque of 35 Nm @ 7000 Rpm. It is also mated with a 6 speed transmission. These figures show that the Duke 390 is way powerful than the Mojo. So pricing it way behind, that is somewhat between the 200 Duke and the Honda CBR 250R, will make it a huge hit.
The bike will be arriving with interesting redesigned works to stay tuned up to the current generation sports machines. It may also get upgraded with some features of the Centuro.
