Earlier this year, at the 2016 Auto Expo, Mahindra Two Wheelers showcased adventure tourer and scrambler design concepts based on their flagship Mojo. The purpose of the design studies are to gauge the public response and move ahead with the product development accordingly.
It seems that Mahindra did get a positive response as they revealed today that the company will launch a new motorcycle based on Mojo’s platform within 2 years. Though Mahindra did not reveal which of the two concept are headed for production, we would guess it is the Adventurer Tourer Concept, considering the exponential rise in demand for entry level adventure tourers across the globe.
Speaking about the Mahindra Mojo Adventure Tourer Concept that was showcased at Auto Expo, the blue off-roader concept looks nothing like the donor model save for the fuel tank and the twin-tubes underneath it.
Armed with long travel suspension system, spoke wheels, off-road tyres, vertically staked projector headlamps, knuckle guards and a massive ground clearance, the Mojo Adventurer tourer concept clearly prioritizes capability over form. The motorcycle loses its tailpiece apart from getting a custom seat and provisions for luggage and water can. Technical specifications have not been discussed.
The second concept which was showcased by Mahindra was the Scrambler concept. It is another example of how the Mojo platform can be reconfigured. Adopting a traditional design, the Mojo Scrambler too retains the regular motorcycle’s fuel tank and twin tunes as far as bodywork go. A contrast brown leather seat, cantilevered tail, minimal twin LED taillights, single sided silencer, and red-finished brake calipers are the highlights. The concept motorcycle also gets a new handlebar with inversely mounted rear view mirror and a jig-like holder to mount your mobile phone. The front fender, instrument console and headlamp are new too.
