Mahindra 2Wheelers has launched two bikes in the Indian market, the Mojo and Stallio. The bike were unveiled by Mr. Anand Mahindra and Aamir Khan (who is now the brand ambassador for the company). Both the Mojo and Stallio come with a 4-year or 80,000 kms warranty and will available by the end of the year. The Mahindra Stallio and Mojo are all set to storm the motorcycle segment with their sleek, sporty contours, Italian styling and comfort. The bikes incorporate design elements from the Italian boutique design house, Engines Engineering which has worked for marques such as Ducati, MV Augusta and Benelli.
The Stallio was unveiled by actor, producer and director, Aamir Khan, whose thought provoking movies have served to both entertain and inspire an entire generation of young Indians. The Mahindra Stallio is available in two variants – Self Start / Cast Alloy wheels / Digital Console and Kick Start / spoke wheels which are available at Rs.44,699/- and 41,199/- (ex showroom Pune), respectively, while the Mahindra Mojo is priced at Rs. 1.75 lac/- (ex showroom Pune). The Stallio will be available at 370 Mahindra 2 Wheelers dealerships across the country. The Stallio comes with a four year manufacturer’s warranty. The distribution model for Mojo will be different and therefore, would be available only in select outlets.
The Mahindra Stallio is a tough and durable bike with several stylish features which puts it in a distinct motorcycling segment. These include digital speedometer, powerful LED tail lamps, pilot LED lamps and a fully flush fuel tank cap. The Stallio incorporates a convenient, pro touch electric start which allows you to take off at the touch of a button, even in heavy traffic conditions. The multi reflector headlamp coupled with LED lighting with clear lens indicators in the headlamp, tail lamps and pilot lamps enhance front and rear visibility, making night riding a safe experience. These LED lights are more resistant to failures from vibration, generate almost no heat and consume very little power.
The bike’s chassis features a rugged, double cradle frame, ensuring greater stability and less possibility of deformation in future. The superior braking system, more responsive controls that perform well in a variety of conditions, including water and mud, makes the Stallio a very safe bike. The sturdy rear grab rail offers the pillion rider a firm grip, ensuring safety.
The large, fully digital display – the first in this segment – comes equipped with a speedometer, fuel gauge, tachometer and clock. It also gives you an idea of the distance travelled in one trip. The Stallio’s visor features a sharp, inverted arrow design which is sure to stop traffic when you zoom past. This nifty bike sports cool racing style alloy wheels which are strong and lightweight. They not only provide more stability at corners but also have better tolerance to shocks and ensure good heat dissipation. These trendy alloys are complemented by class leading wheel base of 1265 mm which provide a stable ride and good ground clearance. The fuel tank cap blends seamlessly with the body of the bike, further adding to its style quotient. The Stallio is available in a choice of five shades – Derby Red, Colt Black, Equus Blue, Buckskin Yellow and Ranch Green.
A testosterone packed 300 cc bike with cool retro styling, the Mojo blends the best of global motorcycle technology and design. It is a handcrafted machine and a one of its kind lifestyle motorcycle which will soon go into production. Mahindra 2 Wheelers has, in fact, devised a unique marketing and promotion strategy for this ultimate performance bike which will be revealed when the bike will be available for sale in the next 3-4 months.
This modern classic is driven by a 4V DOHC engine which offers peak power of 26 BHP @ 8500 rpm and maximum torque of 24 Nm @ 7000 rpm, making it a performance biker’s dream come true. It also features a 6 speed gearbox, as opposed to the regular 5 speed gearbox found amongst its peers, along with a sporty dual exhaust for the right propulsion. The Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system has been developed by Ducati Energia of Italy. In an industry first, the Mojo sports inverted front shock absorbers developed by Paioli of Italy, which ensures superior shock absorbing ability at high speeds. This is complemented by a horizontally mounted mono shox at the rear, allowing for much more comfortable ride. Radially mounted assembly also helps in accurate braking.
The Mojo is the first ever motorcycle in India to sport Pirelli tubeless radials. They are also the widest tyres in their class (4” x 17” at the rear), ensuring greater stability. These are complemented by edgy front petal disc brakes which are the largest in the segment at 320 mm to ensure safe braking. There’s a disc brake at the rear as well. The bike also features LED pilot lamps and tail lamps with clear lens indicators in the headlamp, ensuring greater visibility for the rider. The display includes a digital speedometer with fuel gauge, tripmeter, gear shift indicator, and analogue tachometer. The bike also sports indicators on the rear view mirrors, which are not seen on Indian bikes.
This showstopper sports an aerodynamic ‘tear drop’ shape and a classic gold frame assembly with twin headlamps adding to the bike’s distinctly retro look. The dual pipe frame adds strength to the overall structure of the bike, while the under cowl enhances the Mojo’s macho appeal. This ‘exoskeleton’ look is usually only found in top notch brands. The Mojo is available in a choice of two colours – red and black. Customers also have the option of customising their bikes with a range of decals.
