On 7th June 2012, Mahindra unveiled the upgraded version of the Mahindra Rodeo and recently it officially launched the same in South India. The scooter will definitely come to other regions of India but in a phase wise manner. Mahindra 2 Wheelers is planning to sell 5000 units of the Rodeo RZ and will target young urban couples.
Viren Popli, Senior Vice President – Strategy and Market Development, Mahindra Two Wheelers, said, “The Mahindra Rodeo RZ is a zippy, trendy, youthful scooter with a host of unique modern features, which lets both him and her do more, much more.”
The upgrade has been done both on the technical level and bodily level. On the technical front, Mahindra has retained the same 125 CC engine but the same now features Dual Curve Digital Ignition System, that improves the engines performance eventually putting out a little more than 8 BHP of max power and 9 Nm of max torque. Interestingly the engine still manages to deliver a ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 59.38 KMPL.
