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.
The Mojo no doubt has left its mark in the entry level performance motorcycle segment when Mahindra pitched it as a sports tourer. The reports however also suggest that the motorcycle which was spotted was powered by the same 300 cc engine but it ditched the EFI (fuel injection) system and opted for a simple carburettor setup. In this way Mahindra will be able to price the new motorcycle more aggressively.
The Mojo is currently being powered by the 300 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine fuel injected unit which is capable of producing about 26.82 Bhp of peak power and 30 nm of torque. The engine is paired to a 6 speed manual transmission.
The upcoming Mojo variant will definitely be priced a lot lower than the existing variant and chances are that it might even be priced lower than the soon to be launched Bajaj Pulsar VS400.
