Recently we heard the news of how Hero motorcorp could launch the much awaited HX250r at prices well below that of the KTM Duke200.Now, we’ve got another good news coming your way. Mahindra could launch their 300cc street fighter ‘Mojo‘, at prices below the Rs 1.5 lakh range.The launch of the bike is scheduled for April 2015.
All the speculations came about when the manufacturer imported their 300cc offering to Dubai via the CBU route.The import price was Rs 1.25 lakhs, which is also the declared amount for the prototype.Though the price will increase a bit as the bike enters production, we are now almost certain it will not go beyond the 1.5 lakh range.
The Mahindra Mojo was first showcased at the 2010 Indian Auto Expo.The bike has since undergone large number of changes, mainly because of the rigorous testing the Indian manufacturer is putting it through.Though the whole testing process is great for the final product,most Indians soon got tired of all the waiting.
Mechanically , The 2015 Mahindra Mojo 300 will be powered by a 295cc,4 stroke liquid cooled,DOHC powertrain, which can produce a maximum of 27bhp of power at 8500rpm, and 25 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. The engine is mated with a 6-speed transmission ,and the bike as a whole comes with large number of exciting features.However ABS is not expected be provided(Not sure if it will be optional).
The Mahindra Mojo will have large number of competitors in the segment, as more and more manufactures are coming out with their affordable performance motorcycless, which could also hinder the manufacturers chances in the segment.Some of the bikes that will be launched in India ,in the coming months include Hyosung GD250R,Hero HX250r and the Bajaj Pulsar 200ss ( Upcoming bikes in India 2015 )
