Just ahead of the Jawa retro motorcycle deliveries, the manufacturers of Jawas – Mahindra Two Wheelers – is offering a massive Rs. 75,000 discount on the Mojo UT300 sports tourer. After discount, Mahindra employees will be able to purchase the Mojo UT300 at Rs. 75,000, which is half the price at which the motorcycle selling in Delhi – Rs. 1,49,520. Even if you’re not a Mahindra employee, you can bag upto Rs. 60,000 off on the Mojo UT300 by exchanging your old two wheeler during purchase. And if you don’t have a two wheeler to exchange, you can still buy the Mahindra Mojo UT300 for a flat cash discount of Rs. 40,000.
There’s a catch though. Mahindra Two Wheelers dealers are offering this discount only on the 2018 model year Mojo UT300. It’s unclear if the company is producing the Mojo UT300 anymore. If production has been halted, then these discounts are indicative of a move from Mahindra to cull the Mojo from its product line-up. The two wheeler arm of Mahindra could then fully focus on the Jawa range of retro-motorcycles, which has received a great response from buyers. The Mahindra Mojo – right from the outset, has been a poor seller, and even the cut price UT300 variant did little to boost sales.
Coming to the technical specifications of the Mahindra Mojo UT300, the motorcycle uses a carbureted version of the 295cc four stroke engine, which gets fuel injection on the regular Mojo. On the Mojo UT300, this motor pumps out 22.5 Bhp of peak power and 25.2 Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired with a five speed manual gearbox. The engine gets liquid cooling, a four valve head and twin overhead camshafts. The gearbox is a six speed unit. The Mojo UT300 retains the unique, twin exhaust layout, and weighs 163 kilograms. In order to make the motorcycle more affordable, Mahindra Two Wheelers has also replaced the upside down front forks with cheaper, telescopic front forks.
Other key changes include the swapping of Pirelli Diablo Rosso II to MRF tyres on the UT300, and deletion of twin horns and replacing this feature with a single horn. Apart from these changes, the motorcycle is stylistically identical to the regular Mojo 300. It retains the 21 liter fuel tank, which gives it a massive range of over 60 kilometers, reaffirming its positioning as a sports touring motorcycle. Notably, the Mojo UT300, even before discount was Rs. 21,000 cheaper than the regular Mojo. With the latest discounts on offer, the motorcycle is a really tempting buy for those who want a very affordable yet solidly engineered long distance bike.
