The Mahindra Mojo story had all our attention late last year and when it was announced in September 2010 and we were told to expect it in showrooms early 2011 but that date never came, and couple that with the gear box issues that the Stallio faced, Mahindra decided to launch the Mojo only after a good revival. When launched the bike came with a 4-years/40,000 kms warranty and 8 free services (which is amazing) and the following specifications:

The Mahindra Mojo brings to the table a 292CC engine with a healthy 26BHP of power, a Ducati Energia EFI system and the inverted shock absorbers directly from Paioli of Italy. Now that’s something isn’t it? A naked 250CC+ bike with some major R&D going into it. Except for its rather not so pleasing design, the Mojo seemed perfect. Even its price of about 1,75,000INR seemed decent enough for a bike that had a lot of tech going in.

Mahindra for promotion of the bike even had 125CC MotoGP rider Danny Webb ride the bike at Thundersprint and he went on to describe the Mojo as “Funky and Fun”. Mahindra hopefully have done some cutting and chopping at their design center to the Mojo and we hope they have got it right for everybody’s sake.
