Mahindra is readying the cheaper version of the Mojo and the same as has been caught testing once again. The latest pictures come from Kolhapur – Belgaum stretch and it reveals the new variant of the Mojo completely. It has been caught testing without any camouflage.
There are many features that the affordable version of the motorcycle will lose over the regular version. To start with, the new Mojo will shed the Paioli sourced upside-down fork and will get regular telescopic fork at the front. The motorcycle also loses the dual exhaust system and there is only a single exhaust on the right-hand side of the bike. Mahindra will also use new thinner tyres instead of Pirelli Diablo Rosso II used in the current model. The new tyres are expected to be supplied by MRF.
Mahindra has also removed a few gold painted parts like the swingarm and has given it a black treatment. Also, the fuel delivery system is expected to change from injection to carburettor. Mahindra will also remove the DRLs from the headlamp assembly in the new variant. With all the changes, Mahindra is expected to slash a good amount of price from the Mojo.
The motorcycle currently retails at Rs. 1.72 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. The high price finds only a few buyers of the touring motorcycle that competes against the likes of Bajaj Dominar. With the removal of non-essential features, Mahindra may bring down the price to around Rs. 1.3 lakh, which will be in the Bajaj Dominar territory.
The new motorcycle can be seen with a set of accessories that have been put on the test. There are rear pannier bag holders and a top bag/box holder too. The motorcycle can also be seen with meshed headlamp protector at the front.
Mahindra is expected to showcase a production-ready model at the Auto Expo 2018.
