The Mahindra Gusto 125 automatic scooter has been unveiled few weeks ahead of its launch. The new derivative shares its platform with the 110 cc model which was launched in 2014.
Visually, the Gusto 125 carries forward its smaller engined siblings’s primary design elements but features enhancements like dual-tone color themes, contrast colored wheels and grab rail, new air vents on the front apron and unmissable Gusto 125 badges on the engine cover.
The automatic scooter is powered by a 124.57 cc air-cooled 4-stroke engine which is mated to a CVT. Equipped with load sensing 5-curve engine mapping, the M-TEC motor produces a rather modest 8.6 PS at 7,000 rpm and 10 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. Fuel efficiency figures are not released yet.
The Gusto 125 derives its equipment package from the Gusto 110. Salient features include front telescopic fork, height adjustable seat, remote key, find-me-home lamp, LED pilot lamps, tubeless tyres and so on. The scooter is fitted with 12-inch wheels for safer dynamics and is retarded by 130 mm drum brake at each wheel.
The Mahindra Gusto 125 measures 1,825 mm in length, 711 mm in width, 1,188 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 1,275 mm. Ground clearance and fuel tank capacity stand at 165 mm and 6 litres respectively. The scooter will be available in four color options – Orange Rush (dual-tone), Bolt White (dual-tone), Monarch Black and Regal Red.
