Spotted – New Mahindra 110cc Scooter: functional and conservative
Mahindra Two Wheelers have stated that they are going to launch new products every year. This will help them grow and compete with the big players like Honda, Hero and Bajaj. They have already been spotted testing their flagship 300 cc motorcycle, called the Mojo. Now, codenamed G101, a new 110cc scooter from Mahindra Two Wheelers Ltd (MTWL) was caught testing near Pune recently. Expected to go on sale in a few months, the scooter looks as good as production ready.
This new Mahindra family Scooter features handlebar mounted clear headlamp, front apron mounted turn indicators in vertical orientation, sizeable rear view mirror, expansive floorboard, handy rear grab rail and forged steel rims. Telescopic forks will serve on the front, while a single hydraulic shock performs on the rear.
The design at a glance suggests two words – conservative and utilitarian, which always has good acceptance in Indian market. A 110cc four-stroke air-cooled engine that powers the Mahindra Centuro, will probably be re-tuned to drive this new scooter. Thumb start and kick-start options will be available.
Positioned just beneath Mahindra’s Duro and Rodeo scooters, it is set up against Honda’s Activa, Activa-i, Hero Pleasure, TVS Scooty Zest, TVS Jupiter, Suzuki Lets, Yamaha Alpha, and Yamaha Ray. Wow, thats a lot of competition just in under 110cc segment. Will the new contender from Mahindra have an edge over the crowd?
Why not? Mahindra knows very well how to offer USPs. Their Centuro motorcycle offered many first’s in the industry, and so is expected of their new scooter which should come out with a compelling price tag to sweep the buyers into its course.
