Mahindra first launched this new variant of the company’s popular commuter bike Centuro in Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat. Now launched nation wide, Centuro Rockstar is priced lower as compared to other variants so as to lure buyers.
Mahindra Centuro Rockstar gets LED tail lamps, telescopic front forks with hydraulic dampers and 5 step adjustable rear shocks. Tyres in front are 2.75-18R while at the rear tyres are 3.00-18R fitted on black alloy wheels.
Due to its lower price, the Rockstar is a stripped down version of Centuro and comes in with new body graphics while features such as stainless steel cover on exhaust, remote key fob and digital dash are excluded. Rockstar is available with self start as standard along with kick start.
Mahindra Centuro Rockstar is powered by the same engine as seen in O1 and N1 variants in the form of a 106 cc single cylinder, air cooled, MCI-5 engine offering 8.5 PS peak power at 7,500 rpm and 8.5 Nm torque at 5,500 rpm while mated to a 4 speed transmission. Centuro Rockstar claims fuel efficiency of 85 kmpl and is being offered with a 5 year warranty.
