– All prices are ex-sh.
Over the past weeks, Mahindra has shared multiple teasers and spy shots of the motorcycle. Its launch date was initially rumoured to be July 21. The Mahindra Mojo 300 BS6 primarily rivals Bajaj Auto’s Dominar 400. Other alternatives include the KTM 390 Duke and BMW G 310 R (BS6 model yet to debut).
Mahindra Two Wheelers has revealed the complete colour choices available for the Mojo BS6. There are four options: Red Agate (red + white dual-tone), Black Pearl (full black), Ruby Red (red + black dual-tone) and Garnet Black (black with red frame). Red Agate appears to be the best choice. In all four instances, the motorcycle rides on black wheels (no pinstripes for Red Agate). Furthermore, Red Agate shade extends to its headlamp cowl.
Unlike the original version (or XT300 variant), the BS6 model does not get dual exhausts or USD forks. In other words, the Mahindra Mojo BS6 is an updated ‘UT300’. Notable highlights include a large dual-headlamp configuration, dual-channel ABS, 21-litre fuel tank (largest in the segment), semi-digital instrument console, 320mm front petal disc brake (non-petal 240mm unit at the rear), LED tail lamp, etc. As per the latest teaser, the Mahindra Mojo 300 BS6 is significantly better on refinement, efficiency and comfort.
It rides on 110/70R17 and 140/70R17 tyres (original model had a set of Pirellis) at the front and rear, respectively. Being a tourer with soft offroading capabilities, the front suspension travel is set at 143mm while the rear monoshock provides 135mm.
Engine & Specs
As mentioned before, the BS6 Mahindra Mojo does not sport any substantial improvements in terms of styling. Power figures could slightly vary compared to its BS4 counterpart. In its last iteration, the Mojo 300 churned out 26.6bhp @ 7,500rpm and 28Nm @ 5,500rpm from a 294.72cc liquid-cooled DOHC single-cylinder engine. This is coupled to a 6-speed transmission (no slipper clutch). The power plant is used in a different format in Jawa Motorcycles’ 42, ‘Jawa’ and Perak (larger bore).
In BS6 avatar, ECU has been tuned to deliver refined performance at lower revs. Tuning the ECU has also resulted in improving fuel efficiency by up to 10%. Deliveries of the new Mojo BS6 will start in a few days.
