Mahindra Mojo prices bumped up by around 5k
Mahindra announced its power-packed Mojo bike back in 2010 and the motorcycle was then displayed at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo and then, again in 2014 at the same venue with minor changes. The company finally launched this highly anticipated model in October 2015 after months of speculation and delays. The bike is being promoted as sports tourer and will compete with the likes of the KTM Duke and Honda CBR 250R. Mahindra has already launched the official website for its upcoming product – Mahindra Mojo Official Website
The Mahindra Mojo was launched at INR 1.58 lacs (ex-showroom, New Delhi), but this was merely an introductory price. The bike now retails for around INR 5000 more at INR 1.63 lacs (ex-showroom, New Delhi) which brings the on-road price to around INR 1.8 lacs.

As can be seen in the images of the production-spec model, the upcoming bike looks every bit a sports tourer and features an aggressive-looking front fairing. This fairing features a twin-pod headlamps setup which in turn boast of LED DRLs. The bike also gets upside down front forks and a monoshock at the rear. The bike gets fibre covers for the radiator and a LED taillight. The Mojo gets high-quality switchgear.

Test Rider’s notes
It is being said that the Mojo’s high torque output makes short work of steep slopes and the suspension setup is “amazing.” The ABS brakes are “better than the Honda CBR250R’s” and the Pirelli rubber provides “excellent grip in dry weather and wet conditions alike.” Even the ergonomics are “spot on which make it a better tourer than any other bike in the segment” and the headlamp “illuminates without scatter.”
The current scene in the 200-400cc segment is already hotting up with the likes of KTM Duke 200, KTM RC 200 and the Honda CBR250R having already found many takers. Also, the highly awaited Hero HX250R is expected to become the most sorted out product in its segment. The Mojo’s muscular looks, long equipment list and a good motor, however, can work in favor of the Mahindra flagship. Let’s just hope that it is priced right.
