The Mahindra Mojo is the first true Indian-made long-distance tourer and is designed to offer the perfect blend of comfort and power. It was first showcased at the Auto Expo 2016 and it competes with bikes like the Benelli TNT25, the Honda CBR250R and the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
According to reports, Mahindra Two Wheelers will introduce a new color option – Sunburst Yellow – for the Mahindra Mojo. Currently, the tourer is available in Volcano Red, Charcoal Black and Glacier White body colours. The Sunburst Yellow colour option brightens up the Mahindra Mojo and highlights its design lines to a great extent.
The Mahindra Mojo is designed in a way that leaves you wondering whether you like the way it looks or not. It does have high quality bits though – from the 43mm upside down forks, Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres to the twin headlamps with LED guides. The digital console of the Mojo is jam-packed with features and offers a range of information, including maximum achieved speed, trip meter, odometer and side stand indicator. It also offers a shift light.
The best part about the Mahindra Mojo, however, is its wonderful engine. It is powered by a sublime 295 cc liquid-cooled engine that develops 27 bhp and 30 Nm of power and torque respectively. The Mojo also has a massive 21 litre fuel tank and dual-exhausts with an unbelievable good noise. The Mahindra Mojo is currently one of India’s best value-for-money sports tourers.
The bike isn’t all power and no comfort either. It offers a supple ride, with its suspension taking care of all kinds of road undulations with ease, so there isn’t much to complain in terms of straight line handling and ride quality. It’s only when you show it a corner or two, the Mojo doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence. It doesn’t wallow as such and the Pirelli tyres offer superb grip, even when you are leaned in. But the front end doesn’t offer you much feedback and you become wary of pushing it harder. Part of the issue is also due to the Mojo’s long wheelbase and part of it due to the chassis, which doesn’t offer intuitive handling.
