MOJO 300- A Superb Attraction From Mahindra 2 Wheelers

After a successful introduction to Mahindra Diablo and Mahindra Cevalo, Mahindra 2 Wheelers have some more for the Indian motor ways. Named Mahindra Mojo, a 300cc giant is another machine to be launched from the newly established company.
It was obvious with the India Based Manufacturer that they will be soon introducing some more variants. But honestly speaking, I never knew it could be so rapid and so surprising. Two 300cc machine releases prior to launch? I guess they are developing competition for their own brands and neglecting antagonism against other manufacturers. Due to official release of the data on Mahindra Mojo 300, we are able to provide you the pre launch Preview and Technical Specifications.
Mahindra Mojo Design
The Mojo has been designed with an essence of racing breeds. The bike is a streamline frame structure in blend with perfect aerodynamics flow. The looks will be first of its kind in India but some how resemble to Honda VTR 250 which Honda will be launching soon in India.
Mahindra Mojo Engine
Engine with a displacement of 300cc and definitely equipped with liquid cooling feature. Moreover DOHC technology emphasizes on better combustion and efficient power. Fuel-injection system is a trend these days in Indian motorcycles and Mahindra 2 Wheelers is enduring the Energia Fuel Injection in their bikes.
Mahindra Mojo Suspension
Testing their bikes on Race circuits has made them utilize some racing bike features. You must have heard about Inverted shock absorbers which are usually used for supporting the rider weight directly on the axle to give better shock absorbers while cornering and at high speeds. Mojo is equipped with such a kind at front and to make a better response from rear side, the Monoshock suspensions have been replaced by Gas charged Monoshock suspension. This allows the rider to relax even when meeting numerous speed bumps on motorways. Definitely a necessity for Indian roads!
Mahindra Mojo Braking System
Why should brakes lag when everything is featured? Yes, Disc brakes have got Radial callipers and some big Petal discs which is a renowned technology for smooth safe stopping. The traction has been further improved by introducing Double Barred Exoframe with 150mm tubeless tires.
Mahindra Mojo Exhaust
The exhaust system will be a dual one. Yes, both the sides will receive an exhaust outlet with complete looks of a sports bike. The sound offered by the exhausts will be a roar on roads.

A long wait is approaching to end as Bajaj-KTM is looking to launch new bike in India in upcoming year.

There have been many rumours regarding the collaborative product but recent official talk about the bikes is that the price-tag of the motorcycle will be over one lakh INR. The range of street bikes will feature engines of capacity 125cc and more. The launch is somehow definite in the cities of Europe by the end of this year and the welcome season of 2011 will be the time for India to host some launches from the team. Bikes will be sold through Bajaj Autos Pro-Biking showrooms.
It is news that the first launch from Bajaj-KTM will have a price tag of Rs1, 00,000. But not sure whether that bike will have an engine of 125cc or over 200cc. That shall continue remaining mystery for we people. Hope to see much powerful and superior bikes over those which we have we have already available in the market these days.
Another news from the team is that they are going to launch a series of imported bikes from KTM in Indian market in the upcoming years. This will definitely boost competition with Kawasaki which is looking to launch powered bikes in Indian market. The only similarity between Kawasaki and KTM will be the partner Bajaj Autos, India.
Words From Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, MD, Bajaj Autos
“Whatever product will be out in the market will be at a very significant premium as against brands like the Pulsar. Else, what is the use of bringing such a product?”
I personally wish to see a bike with displacement over 250cc and power more than 20bhp from the Team. And would like to know the expectations from my readers. Please state your views in the comment box below!
