Mahindra launched the Mojo in India as the premium sports tourer but due to expensive price tag it carries, it did not become very popular in the market. Now Mahindra was seen testing a new variant of the Mojo, which seemed like a low-cost variant of the model. Rushlane has reported that the upcoming low-cost variant of the Mojo has reached selected dealerships and it will be known as the Mojo UT.
The new bike will take on the Bajaj Dominar in the price range. Mahindra has shortened the feature list of the Mojo to make it cheaper in the market. To start with, the engine is now carburetted as against fuel injected engine available with the regular model. The bike also misses out on dual exhaust, LED DRL, Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres and USD forks. The bike gets MRF tyres of the same size instead.
Mahindra Mojo UTE has also missed out on the gold accents and gets blacked out swingarm and chassis. The bike is available in two colour accents – Red and Blue. The bike also gets a new seat with revised pillion seat.
Mahindra is expected to do a price cut of about Rs. 25,000 to put a price tag of around Rs. 1.4-1.5 lakh on the bike. This will directly put in the Dominar territory. Mahindra is yet to make any official statements about the new bike.
The same report also claims that the regular Mojo has been renamed to Mojo XT300. In the FI version the 295cc, single-cylinder, the liquid-cooled engine produces a maximum of 27 Bhp at 8,000 rpm and 30 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. However, these figures may change with the carburetted engine.
Mahindra may announce the price of the bike very soon given that the bike has already started reaching the dealerships. Mahindra is also planning to launch an adventure version of the bike in the market soon.
