Mahindra Two Wheelers has not been in action for a long time. All their products like the Gusto, Duro and others are no longer in production. One of their most capable products, the Mahindra Mojo, though showed some action. While the website itself never got updated, Mahindra has made sure the product is launched. The few dealerships that are available in India have started accepting bookings for Rs 5,000. The Mahindra Mojo BS6 price in India starts from Rs 1.99 lakh, ex-showroom. This is Rs 5,000 more than the BS4 ABS model. This time, Mahindra is charging as per the desired colour. Speaking of which, there are four colours on offer and the most affordable one is the Black Pearl. There is also the Garnet Black for Rs 2.06 lakh while the Ruby Red and Agate Red are for Rs 2.11 lakh, ex-showroom. Delivery is promised in mid-August.
What’s new with the Mahindra Mojo BS6?
The Mojo has gained weight. As it is the bike was quite porky and now due to the new regulations it has become heavier. It is now 186kg. Previously, the bike weighed around 182kg with the ABS addition. Speaking of which, there is dual-channel non-switchable ABS on offer. Mahindra have done away with the upside down forks and the dual-silencer set-up. You get conventional forks in the front and a monoshock at the back.
The engine is the likeable motor from the previous bike and now in use with the Jawa motorcycles. However, Mahindra have detuned the motor here, perhaps to give Jawa an edge. The Mojo now produces 25.3PS of power which is nearly 0.6PS less than before while the torque has gone down by 2Nm – now stands at 26Nm. The 6-speed gearbox continues but doesn’t get a slipper clutch. Mahindra claims to have enhanced the refinement as well as fuel efficiency (10%).
The Mahindra Mojo BS6 may be heavy and lost power but the bike should have fantastic build quality and reliability. The flip side is the lack of authorised service centres and availability of certain parts. It also made for an effortless cruiser though the lack of wind protection might affect its capabilities.
