Though launched, deliveries are yet to start. Pune based biker Savio, who was the first to book the Mojo BS6 in India, is expecting to get delivery of his bike by September. Ahead of deliveries starting, select enthusiasts have managed to get a test ride of the Mojo BS6.

According the Rakesh, the BS6 Mojo is much more refined and smoother, as compared to the BS4 Mojo. In addition to this, he also experienced lesser jerks at lower RPMs. Other two points made by him are – Sounds quite smooth compared to previous one ( Due to additional Cat Cons ) , XT Exhaust was quite bassy.
And the second point, Excellent brakes and as usual comfortable seats just like previous ABS model. When asked about the missing USDs by another member of the Mojo Club, Rakesh replied that he found the new telescopic forks just like the USDs. Fuel efficiency has been improved.
