Back in March 2016, when Mahindra Gusto 125 was first launched it was only for Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Maybe, Mahindra took this step to gauge the response the scooter generates. Obviously it did good, because now Mahindra has now made available the Gusto 125 in 8 more states of the country.
Vinod Sahay, Chief Operating Officer, Mahindra Two Wheelers Ltd was present during the launch of the Gusto 125 in Delhi. He said that since the launch of the Gusto last year, it has grown consistently and they are now excited about extending the Gusto brand to include new consumer segments.
Mahindra Gusto 125, as the name suggests, is slightly more powerful than its 100cc sibling. It is powered by a 125cc, single-cylinder engine which produces 8.7 PS of max power and a peak torque of 10 Nm. The engine is equipped with Mahindra’s own MCDi technology. This detects when the engine is under stress and changes the ignition timing accordingly which in turn, provides better performance on varying riding conditions. This especially helps to ride with a pillion easy.
Mahindra Gusto 125 has got two variants – VX and DX. The DX variant being the premium one gets features like remote flip key, guide lamps, easy front kick among others. It also offers a height adjustable seat which is the first in any scooter in the country. The Gusto 125 comes with tubeless tyres put on over 12-inch wheels, which offers a comfortable ride. The comfortable ride is further enhanced by the telescopic suspension up front and a monoshock at the rear.
The Mahindra Gusto 125 is priced at INR 40,410 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) for the VX variant and at INR 52,410 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) for the DX variant. It is available in 4 different colours – Orange Rush, Bolt White, Monarch Black and Regal Red. Mahindra is also planning to launch the Gusto 125 in a few Asian and Central American countries soon.
