Complete details of the long-awaited Mahindra Mojo have been released.
Mahindra Two Wheelers Limited’s (MTWL) flagship product is positioned as an affordable yet effortless touring equipment which can embark on some really long journeys. The motorcycle has already successfully completed Bun Burner (1,680 km in 24 hours) ride in 22 hours and Saddle Sore challenge (2,700 km in 36 hours) in 34 hours. The Mojo also completed the Rain and Hilly road task of 2600 km in 40 hours.
Here is a compilation of all there is to know about the latest compact sportsbike contender.
The version of Mahindra Mojo which finally enters production is completely different from the initial concept which was unveiled half a decade ago. Save for the distinct twin circular headlamps, everything else underwent a comprehensive redesign. The headlamps are complemented by eyebrow-styled LED daytime running lights and a minimal fairing. The new fuel tank design which was unveiled at the last year’s Auto Expo is muscular and adds character to the bike. It carries 3D “Mojo” and Mahindra badges.
The nicely contoured single-piece dual-tone seat has been designed with long distance touring in mind. The silver side panel conceals the frame while the almost non-existent tailpiece hoses LED taillights (12 elements) and a license plate holder. The golden finish for the meaty front fork, twin ornamental tubes below the fuel tank and the swing arm provides a nice contrast to rest of the motorcycle. The stylish twin silencers, petal discs and attractive Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres round off what is a fresh and muscular design.
The Mojo is 2,100 mm long, 800 mm wide, 1165.5 mm tall and has a wheelbase and saddle height of 1,465 mm and 814.5 mm respectively. The generous ground clearance of 173.5 mm would help it tackle the poor roads while the impressive fuel tank capacity of 21 kmpl gives it a decent range for touring. The vehicle has a dry weight of 165 kg.
Engine and Gearbox
The Mahindra Mojo is powered by a homegrown 300 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which employs dual OHC and iridium spark plug. Mated to a 6-speed constant mesh gearbox, the motor churns out 27 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 30 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The combustion is controlled by an electronic fuel injection.
Other noteworthy features of powertrain are wet multiplate clutch, wet sump with forced lubrication, and paper type air filte. The engine oil used is 10W50 4T Jaso MA-2.
Chassis and Suspension
The tourer is underpinned by twin tube exposed frame which the engine mounted co-axially. Suspension duty is taken care by an inverted telescopic front fork with 143.5 mm travel upfront and a high pressure gas charged monoshock at the rear with internal floating piston (143 mm travel).
Brakes and Tyres
Mahindra says that the Mojo’s front and rear disc brakes are the largest in the class. The front petal disc measures 320 mm in dia and is retarded by radial caliper. The 240 mm rear disc employs floating caliper.
The premium Pirelli Diablo Rosso II are certainly one of the talking points of the Mojo. The front and rear tyre specifications are 110/70 ZR17 M/C 54W and 150/50 ZR17 66W respectively.
MTWL has equipped its flagship product with a comprehensive digi-analog instrument console which offers functions such as dual trip meter, speed test meter (0-100 kmph), top speed recorder, high rpm indicator, malfunction indicator, digital fuel gauge, clock and LED rpm indicator. Other noteworthy features include limp home mode, automatic headlamp controller, self adjustable light beam control of dual headlamps and roll over sensor. The electrical systems derive power from a 12V battery.
The Mahindra Mojo will be offered in three color themes – Black with golden accents, White with Golden Accents and White-Red racing livery with black accents.
To be sold at 10 dealerships across four cities – New Delhi, Bengaluru, Pune and Mumbai, Mahindra Mojo price starts from INR 1.58 lakh. More cities and dealerships will be added in the second phase. You can read our Mahindra Mojo Review here.
