It is not a hidden fact that Mahindra Two Wheelers is the newest two wheeler maker in the Indian market. The company took over the sinking two wheeler business of Kinetic Engineering in 2008, and since then, the company has been putting up decent sales in the entry level segments.

Till now, Mahindra hasn’t been able to pose a serious threat to the established competitors, with the entry level 110cc commuter Centuro and the 110cc scooter Gusto too selling in average numbers. Mahindra is in a need of making its product portfolio stronger to make itself an established and serious auto maker in this very business. In order to expand its portfolio, the company has launched its first ever premium motorcycle, the 300cc naked streetfighter Mojo.

It took Mahindra more than three years to develop its first ever premium motorcycle in the form of Mojo. The Mojo, which was first showcased in Auto Expo 2012, has now arrived to take on the growing competition in the 250-300cc entry level sportsbikes. Pitched as a sport tourer, can the Mahindra Mojo carve a niche for itself in the crowd of KTMs, Kawasakis and Yamahas? Here’s a quick review to find out what all mojo does the new Mojo pack in:-

BMW G 310 R vs KTM Duke 390 vs Benelli TNT 300 vs Mahindra Mojo

Battle of the naked middleweights enters 2017. Get ready for a lot of flash-bangs.

Strap yourself up to your seat guys. Things are going to get wild here. 2017 saw the launch of the brand new KTM Duke 390 that is said to wipe out any competition there has ever been. Later in the year, the German brand BMW Motorrad will be launching its smallest motorcycle, the G 310 R which is manufactured here in India by TVS. These two machines will change the face of the middleweight naked sports segment which until now had the Mahindra Mojo and the foreigner Benelli TNT 300 from Italy.

We will sit down and chalk up a charge sheet to decipher the best machine you would want to invest in according to your needs and wish. Although the KTM is a notch above in all departments, we will have it here just for the sake of comparison. Mahindra is the least expensive of all and the Benelli is the only one with two cylinders and has that Italian flair that no one carries. The Beemer, on the other hand, is built for the world market and will remain to be a neutral contender in both style and performance compared amongst the rest here.

All the four motorcycles will have a condescending effect on the Indian two-wheeler market, and they have the fresh breed of entry-level naked performance motorcycles to blaze the much needed thrilling experience to enthusiasts and purists. Making motorcyclist get into a realm of more content and less bitter, here is all the help you would need to pick one for yourself:

What are the most underrated mass oriented bikes of India?

What are the most underrated mass oriented bikes of India?

The list includes a model from almost all the manufacturers from India. We ought to give them some slack.

In our number of stories, we have repeatedly said that the Indian two wheeler market is one tough field to study. The kind of demands we Indians do ask from two-wheeler makers are quite hard to conquer, as we want literally everything in one product.

Keeping in view of such demands from a very competitive market, the manufacturers too are doing a tremendous job by offering products which are offering a good blend of all the traits in one single package. Out of all these products, some do hit the sales charts with massive popularity, while some of them end up being average or low sellers, despite being a brilliant piece of engineering and design.

In this feature story, we are going to throw some light on the latter category of motorcycles and scooters, ones which are not selling as expected despite being wonderful in one way or the other. Here’s a list of all such unfortunate and underrated motorcycles and scooters, and we seriously wish that they do post impressive numbers for their makers:-

Bajaj Dominar 400 vs Mahindra Mojo

Bajaj Dominar 400 vs Mahindra Mojo

Showdown of the Naked Sports Tourers

It might have taken a long time, but then, the segment of naked sports tourers has finally begun to burgeon in India. It all started way back in 2012, when Mahindra previewed the Mojo concept for the first time in a raw form, something which still needed a finalised finishing to be launched in a full-fledged manner. Until this year, it was only Royal Enfield which had the presence in the entry level middleweight segment with its range of 350cc cruisers and roadsters.

In 2015, Mahindra finally introduced the Mojo as the only naked sports tourer which had the potential of rivalling the Royal Enfield offerings, with its distinctive styling, excellent engine and top notch hardware. Being the flagship product from Mahindra, the Mojo had to succeed in each and every aspect, owing to the fact that it took a long period of three years in the name of research, development and testing. And then, the end product turned out to be something which was beyond the expectations of enthusiasts, who had little hopes from Mahindra in the premium motorcycle category.

Now that the trumpet was blown by the Mahindra Mojo, how could the competition remain behind? Speaking of the premium sportbike makers, India’s most serious player in this particular segment, Bajaj Auto, had something cooking in its R&D centre. A preview of this process was shown at the Auto Expo 2014 when Bajaj showcased the Pulsar CS400 concept, which was aimed at naked sport tourer lovers. With its premium and unique design elements and the KTM connection in its mechanicals, the Pulsar CS400 generated huge hype around it, with the enthusiasts eagerly waiting it to be unleashed on the market.

And finally, towards the end of the year 2016, Bajaj surprised us with the all new Dominar 400, a product completely based on the Pulsar CS 400 concept. What was more astonishing is the fact that the motorcycle, more or less, is exactly the same machine as the Pulsar CS 400, barring a couple of changes. With a positively shocking starting price, the Dominar is all set to join the Mojo to expand the naked sports tourer segment. However, given the spirit of competition, we need to find out which one of the two emerges out to be the better machine, keeping all the aspects in mind.

In this feature story, we are going to compare two motorcycles in an all new segment of naked sports tourers – both coming from home-grown manufacturers, but do possess a lot of internationalism in their design and engineering. Here’s our comprehensive comparison between the all new Bajaj Dominar 400 and the Mahindra Mojo:-

Comparison – Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Mahindra Mojo vs Honda CBR 250R

Comparison – Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Mahindra Mojo vs Honda CBR 250R

find out who wins the top spot

It might have taken a long period of time, but finally, Royal Enfield has come up with an all new generation motorcycle which completely deciphers the pre-conceived notions attached with Royal Enfields. With the Himalayan, Royal Enfield has carved out a very niche segment of motorcycles, which is indeed a special and exclusive one, yet is the most practical one for the Indian conditions – that of adventure tourers. The segment which was restricted only in the higher end segments with Triumph and BMW Motorrad being the only major players has now become much more accessible, affordable and practical with the Royal Enfield Himalayan.

The Royal Enfield Himalayan is a much more refined and practical motorcycle to live with when compared to the other Royal Enfield motorcycles. It is a motorcycle which promises a lot with its ability of off-road as well as long distance touring, without compromising on the daily duties as well. It indeed is a one-of-its-kind motorcycles currently in the price band to which it belongs right now, but then, some of its attributes are being shared with some other motorcycles. Here in question is the ability of touring, which are already being accomplished by two other motorcycles in its class (apart from the entire Royal Enfield lineup, which will not be discussed here) – Mahindra Mojo and CBR 250R.

Last year, Mahindra did finally put up an end to all the anticipations and doubts revolving around its Mojo project, by launching the much awaited Mojo, which has received rave reviews for its mechanical prowess and long distance touring abilities. Not to forget the Honda CBR 250R, the only fully faired sports tourer in this price, which was the first motorcycle in this price bracket to trigger the want of touring motorcycles with its punchy and refined engine as well as comfortable ergonomics.

In this story, we are going to compare the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Mahindra Mojo and CBR 250R, and find out which motorcycle emerges out to be the best of all the worlds, with the touring abilities being the topmost priority. Here we go:-

Caught Testing Is This The Cheaper Variant Of The Mahindra Mojo

Caught Testing Is This The Cheaper Variant Of The Mahindra Mojo

This variant misses out lots of significant features of the standard Motorcycle

According to the latest spy image and reports Mahindra has started experimenting with their recently launched motorcycle already. Recently from what looks like an early prototype of the upcoming reasonably priced Mojo was photographed while it was being tested in Maharashtra. The motorcycle looked like the existing Mojo but there were actually certain changes made to the test mule. From what it looked like the test mule was fitted with conventional telescopic forks towards the front instead of the upside down telescopic suspension setup finished in golden colour usually found in the standard Mojo which is on sale in the Indian market.

The other odd thing about the test mule was that it featured a single exhaust canister instead of Mojo’s signature duel exhaust canister setup on both side of the motorcycle. Now we are not too sure what exactly Mahindra is planning but it seemed like they are actually trying to launch a low priced Mojo as well which will be sold alongside the existing motorcycle.

The above noted changes point to that direction only because the conventional telescopic suspension setup and a single right hand side exhaust canister will help bring down the pricing of the motorcycle by a fair margin. And if we are not too wrong then Mahindra might even strip the more reasonably priced variant of the Mojo from its Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres as well and will perhaps replace them with standard MRF tyres. The other change might include the replacement of the twin DRL equipped headlamps with a single unit headlamp.

Mahindra Mojo VS Royal Enfield Continental GT

Mahindra Mojo VS Royal Enfield Continental GT

Which one will you choose amongst the duo

The Mahindra Mojo was one of the most anticipated motorcycle of the Indian market because it took really long time for Mahindra who is actually popular in the Indian market for their Sports utility vehicles. While the Royal Enfield Continental GT on the other hand was actually a surprise move from the manufacturer because they have an image of making Cruisers so a Café Racer body type motorcycle from them that too in the Indian market was a bold move.

Now both the Continental GT and the Mahindra Mojo are too very different motorcycles. While the RE Continental GT is a pure café racer the Mahindra Mojo actually comes with a duel character or that is how it is actually pitched in the Indian market. Compared to the Mahindra Mojo The RE flagship offering inh the Indian market gets a bigger engine but if we talk about powers disappointingly the Mojo gives tough competition to the RE café racer although it gets a smaller displacement engine.

The Continental GT definitely will attract to some purist motorcycle riders only because of its styling as well as the riding position which we can assure is not at all comfortable for long ride but the Mojo on the other hand definitely will attract almost everyone’s attention because it promises to provide a plush ride.

So if you are planning to buy an out of the box motorcycle then you should definitely read this article before actually taking any drastic decision.

Best budget tourer - Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Mahindra Mojo vs Honda CBR 250R

In the recent years, the motorcycling segments have become way more mature than ever before. Needless to say, it has led to the dwelling of various new segments and niches which were almost inexistent till yesterday. This phenomenon is more common in the segments of entry level quarter liter segments as well as middleweight sportbike segments, which has seen the arrival of several new players on the Indian soil, which to some extent, have shown excellent results in terms of overall sales and popularity.

Amongst the new segments which have made their presence felt in the Indian market, the segment of tourers and adventure motorcycles definitely needs to be given a special moment. The segment, which is considered to be the most practical among the big sports oriented motorcycles, have shown that the average Indian motorcycling enthusiasts have geared up and have become way more mature than they actually were. A credit of this has to be given to the launch of various new motorcycles in this very segment.

Till now, the segment of tourers was basically confined only to the middleweight segments (600-800cc), which has seen the motorcycles such as Kawasaki Ninja 650, Benelli TNT 600i/TNT 600 GT and the 800cc versions of Triumph Tiger escalating new heights in terms of sales. Witnessing this golden opportunity, various two wheeler manufacturers are moving down in the entry level sportsbike segments, say the 250-300cc category, and have started working on the same.

And the results are quite fruitful too! Honda initiated this with the quarter liter sportsbike, the CBR 250R, which is more of a fully faired sport tourer than a track focused scalpel – a perfect and practical recipe for the bikers obsessed with fully faired machines. Then came the much awaited Mahindra Mojo, which took almost a decade for development till it actually got launched in 2015 and showed good signs of excellence, for the fact that it is the only naked tourer in the quarter liter segment.

And finally, after a lot of speculations, Royal Enfield came up with what was totally unexpected in this segment – a proper fully focused adventure tourer, the Himalayan. Seeing the first impressions, the Royal Enfield Himalayan has finally appeared as the answer to the prayers of all those, who wanted to experience the best of off-roading on two wheels.

In this write-up, we will be comparing the three different motorcycles with varying characters and personas – the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Mahindra Mojo and Honda CBR 250R, which have varying body styles, but there aim is same – to satiate the hunger of all those biking aficionados who want to explore the unexplored terrains, whether on or off road.

What did Mahindra showcased

To keep the momentum going on, Mahindra showcased the best of its engineering and aesthetic prowess at the Auto Expo 2016, by showcasing a range of concepts as well as production ready models.
