Mahindra Centuro

Bike Tested: 2013 Mahindra Centuro

Price OTR Mumbai: Rs. 57,600/-

The Mahindra Centuro comes with features which are out of the box.

Mahindra is best known for producing big, diesel powered utility vehicles that have earned them the title of the third largest four-wheeler manufacturer in the country today. However, they do not produce a single four-wheeler that runs on petrol (except the Verito). Mahindra wants to make every drop of petrol count by entering the two-wheeler market. The Mumbai based manufacturer’s foray into the two-wheelers continues. It started with scooters then came the new Pantero that replaced the Stallio and now, the Centuro. A feature-loaded motorcycle that doesn’t have segment first but industry first features which are set to make its way into the Indian market. The Mahindra Centuro has a similar name to a series of comic heroes (Centurions) who were loaded to gills with advanced technologies to fight crime. So how does this Centuro fare? We ride in the hills of Chandigarh to find out!

2013 Mahindra Centuro Road Test2013 Mahindra Centuro Review
Styling – The Mahindra Centuro uses the same panels as the Pantero. Albeit, there are significant changes to the Centuro which distinguishes it apart. The headlight is a lot bolder and bigger in comparison and comes with LED parking lights. People with sharp memory would know that the headlight cowl and LED pilot lamps resemble the previously launched TVS Phoenix. The twin-molded bars, which connect one side to the other, was first seen on the concept Mojo and adds a distinct flavor to the motorcycle. The tank, tailpiece, LED tail lights and the grab handle are the same cycle parts used on the Pantero. If you look closely, you will find the indicators on the Mahindra Centuro are slightly bolder than the one on the Pantero to compliment the front fascia of the bike. There are no fancy foot rests here but there is a small engine belly fairing to make things better. Fit-finish, build quality and paint job are excellent.

Mahindra Centuro Instrument Cluster

Instrument Cluster and Switch Gear – The three-pod digital instrument cluster looks refreshing and centrally placed analog tachometer is always welcome. A segment first feature on the Mahindra Centuro includes a complete digital speedometer, two trip meters, service reminder, clock and distance to empty feature. The usual shift light, high beam and solitary indicators are placed above the meters. Switchgear on the Centuro is top notch and comes with a pass switch too. The Centuro also comes with a unique key fob that is loaded to the gills. The key fob has a LED torch and has three unique features such as guide me home headlight (stays on for 30 seconds), a buzzing sound with indicators flashing to find your motorcycles in parking spots and an engine immobilizer which works when the onboard system detects a false key is being used to start the engine and it sounds the alarm.

Ergonomics – The seating position is upright and not very wide making it very comfortable. The foot pegs are placed rear set for a comfortable ride. The rear view mirrors do the job very well and give a good view of what is behind. Seat base is long, wide the cushioning is excellent. The tank has been well scooped out for thigh support. Overall, long journeys are comfortable enough on the Mahindra Centuro.

Performance and Gearbox – The Mahindra Centuro is powered by an all new single-cylinder, over-square, 106cc, 2-valve engine which produces 8.5 BHP of peak power at 7500 RPM and 8.5 Nm of torque at 5500 RPM. The engine is revv happy, smooth and NVH levels are excellent. The engine has sufficient low end grunt. The motor strongly pulls in the mid range and it has a top speed of 90 km/hr. The 4-speed gearbox is smooth but after all day abuse you do find it a bit clunky at times. Gear ratios are on the taller side but there is adequate low end grunt to navigate in the city. The engine cleanly revs up to 9000 RPM. The Mahindra Centuro shares the same engine and same output figures as the Pantero but there are subtle changes. The Centruo has an all new CDI with revised intake and exhaust timing for better driveability. The Centuro also comes with a patent lubrication system which is termed as “jet flow” by Mahindra which ensures oil circulation at any RPM speed, low or high RPM. Mahindra claims the Centuro has the highest mileage in the segment which is an astonishing 85.4 km/l. One can expect 68 km/l in real world riding.

Riding Dynamics – The Mahindra Centuro comes equipped with the same chassis as the Pantero. A double cradle frame with telescopic suspension at the front and five-step adjustable rear shocks, which are backed by 18-inch wheels and have grippy MRF tyres slapped on to them. Factor in the light kerb weight of 110 kgs and a short wheelbase of 1265 mm and you get a very agile motorcycle. It stays planted in the sweepers and turns quickly into corners. A major credit goes to the tyres for the superb dynamics, excellent grip in wet and dry conditions. Ride quality is fantastic, the bike glides over potholes and broken roads and even the biggest bumps do not upset the balance of the motorcycle. The 130 mm drum brakes at the front are not that great and one expects to have disc brake as an option on this feature-laden bike, which Mahindra says is in pipeline. However the rear brakes do the job well. High speed stability is excellent and there is minimal windblast.

Verdict – The Mahindra Centuro enters the premium 100-110 cc segment that is fast growing and is being recently tapped by mainstream manufacturers as well. The Centuro is an excellent motorcycle for point A to point B commuting offering class leading equipment, comfort and value to the prospective customer. However, the lack of awareness, shortage of after sales service network and long-term reliability remains a question. The Mahindra Centuro does come with a generous 5-year warranty that should bring some peace of mind to the customer. The real battle will commence once niche brands like Hyosung enter the market with a competitive product range. If you have a Mahindra dealership around you and you strive for something out of the box then the Centuro is worth a glance.

The Mahindra Centuro is a premium commuter motorcycle for those who want something different.

    excellent review of the centuro, only review till now, looks like mahindra has read customer feedback..

    • Mohit Soni June 22, 2013, 1:27 am

      Mahindra has always been keen on feedback which has always enabled them to get better products!

  • anuj June 22, 2013, 12:42 pm

    no one wants so many features in 100cc bikes..

    • shankar July 12, 2013, 12:25 am

      I do not see any harm in offering so many features…on the other hand, if Mahindra can offer so many features in Centuro and specially for the price it is, other bike companies should also offer it.

  • kanor-bd June 22, 2013, 2:25 pm

    Very nice review on a newly launched bike like centuro.
    i’m from bangladesh where road condition is very poor and all cities are suffocated with huge traffic jam.

    although it is a 100 cc bike, it could have been made to produce more bhp to compete others.

    We expect more because bd bikers buy any indian bike by paying almost thrice than that of an indian biker.

    can you imagine we get an yamaha r15 in exchange of almost 5.5 lac taka.

    So i request mahindra to consider bd market during their engineering and pricing because bd is one of the best market of indian bikes. i can challenge that bike-to-people ratio in bd is more than that of any other country in asia.

    • Faisal Khan June 23, 2013, 1:48 pm

      Kanor, bike to people ratio might be higher but what about the overall volumes? Are they enough to justify local production?

      • Kanor-bd June 23, 2013, 3:20 pm

        dear brother Faisal khan,my nick name is also faisal.
        you know that bangladesh is a country of almost 16 crore people and you will hardly find a family even in rural area which doesn’t have a mini garage for its pulsar. We bangladeshi never fear to spend (those who have enough ) for our luxury But out our govt restricts importing bikes having more more than 150 cc machine. that’s why we are deprived from having ktm,royal enfield,cbr…bla bla bla.
        we have three local producer but their experience and quality have yet to go up to the standard.
        The best news for our youngsters is that giant honda-japan has announce officially to set up their motor factory in bangladesh.and they have already started recruiting employee.

        I think our time is in near future to change the game.

        brother faisal, i would like to thank you to initiate this site and for maintaining its quality writings also. i’ve read famous indian sites but really your site deserves best writing.but it lags some important features also. i didn’t find any search option and in bike review you should add more pictures from different angle.


        • Faisal Khan June 24, 2013, 9:40 pm

          Thanks Kanor for your suggestions. We have a search option on the top right. We also have exhaustive picture galleries, just search for bike name picture gallery and you will find it.

          The Bangladesh market seems decently big for motorcycles, weirdly no one is focussing on it. I think Bajaj-KTM do have plans to launch products there.

  • Ben June 26, 2013, 10:33 am

    engine is a copy of splendor

    • krishnan July 12, 2013, 12:32 am

      Firstly, Splendor is a 100 CC bike where as Centuro is a 110cc bike. Then Centuro is marginally better in terms of power (rpm). Also, add to the killer features and looks!

  • Nilesh June 26, 2013, 1:25 pm

    for Ben… Splendor has no patent for that kind of horizontally mounted engine. It’s developed by Mahindra on it’s own and it’s not a copy Tvs had it in their centra, Bajaj had that in their Byk. Horizontally mounted engines lubricates faster and well so wear and tear is reduced. It’s just a way of fitting the engine.

  • Chethan July 1, 2013, 1:08 pm

    Kinetic (bought by) is now Mahindra. That’s why their scooters felt familiar.

  • satish July 1, 2013, 4:16 pm

    I am impressed by Mahindra centuro reviews.110cc motor bike. MCI – 5 Engine and 128-bit encrypted flip-key with LED lights.Central locking system Anti-theft system. Great buy.

  • saurabh shah July 12, 2013, 11:43 am

    excellent bike and features at affordable rates but needs improvement in after sale service network

  • Nilesh kale July 17, 2013, 7:08 pm

    • Faisal Khan July 18, 2013, 12:44 am

      Nilesh, what problems did it give you?

  • sudhanshu July 22, 2013, 2:27 pm

    Which one is better centuro or discover 100T. Any advice??

    • Faisal Khan July 22, 2013, 11:31 pm

      Neither because none of them have proven themselves yet.

      • sudhanshu July 25, 2013, 6:22 pm

    • Faisal Khan September 3, 2013, 12:30 am

      Yogesh, too early to comment on after sales but it should be good since Mahindra is setting up dealerships.

    • karan September 18, 2013, 4:21 pm

      Centuro is the best bike in the present market. Go for it ! Mahindra improved their service center very well across the india I read compare between neo or centuro in one blog. centuro is far better ! enjoy riding on Mahindra Centuro .

  • Vamshii September 6, 2013, 3:46 pm

    Hai Friends

    I am from Chennai, here also the waiting period is 75 days. But without knowing the performance of the Bike yet. I am a daily office goer and ride will be 25 KM per day. Any body having This Mahindra Centuro ple let us know the Mileage/worthiness.

  • SPITFIRE September 6, 2013, 7:40 pm

    Otherwise a decent bike, but those bronze/gold colored tubes beneath the fuel tank sticks out like a #SoreThumb , if it was body colored then it would hv been a bit acceptable.

  • sasi September 11, 2013, 2:27 pm

    Dear friends,

    I will be Purchase Mahindra Centuro & TVS Star city Please Anybody Guide About These Mileage and Qualities

    • Faisal Khan September 11, 2013, 8:50 pm

      Get the Centuro, mileage is around 65 km/l.

    • Rajeshkumar October 28, 2013, 5:34 pm


      I can understand your budget mind. Please dont waste money by buying this bike. Go for Discover 100 T or Honda Dream Yuga.Centuro is worst bike I never seen. Even I too done test drive. Sure it will get expiry in 1 or 2 years.

  • Amit September 18, 2013, 4:03 pm

    I received my centuro bike in the beginning of this month. Bike is very awesome ! I got 69-70 kmpl mileage in 15 days driving in the city. may be 80 kmpl will cross on highway. Pick up is very fast and smooth. centuro is better than from my old discover. Bike of the year. If any one is planning to purchase, then go for mahindra bike only. Keep riding !

    • munish October 8, 2013, 11:11 pm

      • amit October 9, 2013, 4:47 pm

        Hi munish,
        Centuro is the good option to go for. I like safety features are very useful. engine sound is normal and pick up is very smooth. Mileage 70 km/pl till now. no major issues and any way 5 years warranty is also there. you can go for this bike.

  • Pradyumna September 18, 2013, 4:54 pm

    I am confused b/w centuro and discover 100T. Can anyone guide which one is better keeping overall features?

    • Suresh November 18, 2013, 7:52 am

      I feel centuro is good buy, offering you all the key features, excellent mileage. seems to be better than discover 100T.

  • David September 21, 2013, 4:23 pm

    roadgrip and steadyness quality? ……………………

  • Hamid October 8, 2013, 11:26 pm

    I experienced a test drive of Mahindra Centuro yesterday and was a good drive & has this amazing feeling from a comfort level perspective & the pickup angle is amazing. I think centuro will be the great buy.

  • Balaji October 9, 2013, 10:24 pm

    Mahindra Centuro looks amazing! want to take a ride & feel it!

  • divyansh chatri October 11, 2013, 3:36 pm

    I really enjoyed the test ride of mahindra centuro. I will definitely purchase this bike next year on b’day, i will be eighteen, eligible for riding bike till that time i will enjoy centuro test ride.

  • Prateek October 16, 2013, 11:42 pm

    The ride quality was good for a 105cc bike. The engine sound was pleasingly macho. Unlike the other bikes in this segment which dont like to be throtttled, this one was ready for the performance always. The Digital meter and advanced systems were great to look at, except the pink backlight. How I wish Mahindra had a bike of atleast 135cc too. I would have given up he mileage. And surprisingly, my dealer said that people have quoted the mileage of centuro to be 60+. I thought they’d say something around 70, since the company emphasizes so much on mileage.
    TVS Sport is a better option if you’re more concerned for the mileage. TVS Sports offers almost the same look, has more reliability, and makes a better impression for being in the same bloodline as Apache.
    However, if you plan to upgrade in a year or two, then buy a Hero bike like HF Dawn or Deluxe. It offers the best resale value.

  • October 17, 2013, 7:26 pm

    Hi frnds : we want to purchase centuro but we confused between miledge and voice of vehicle .some frnds tel me the milemge of centuro near 50 and voice is very loudly after 2000 km .please tel me originality of this byke i m waiting your feedbak mobile numbr 8127880121

    Dont buy Mahindra Centuro. My friend bought this bike 2 months before. Now he is seeking to sell it. No pertrol consumption, Very week bike. Dont get cheated by seeing facy and attractive things.

  • Ramesh November 1, 2013, 11:24 pm

    The bike is good in terms of comfort & pickup as well.  it’s equipped with MCI-5 (Micro Chip Ignited 5-Curve) Engine, which is one of the best technologies which a bike can have and comes with 5 years warranty too. Great work by mahindra.

  • Tuhin November 2, 2013, 4:49 pm

    Excellent bike! did have a great ride y’day!

  • Rajendra November 3, 2013, 4:23 pm

    Centuro is a cool bike!

  • ukarthikeyan November 5, 2013, 4:08 pm

    very very poor bike

  • Tonmoi Sarmah November 7, 2013, 2:49 pm

    Excellent bike
    I am getting 70kmpl after 1st servicing.
    Very powerful engine but speed is not good. Vibrates at 50 kmph.
    Mileage will increase after 2nd servicing I hope or may not increase.
    Servicing people are very good.
    Don’t think just buy it. I am totally satisfied.
    Only problem I am getting is the engine stops while shifting gear I don’t know why.
    Since I am a learner so the problems faced are temporary.

    • Faisal Khan November 11, 2013, 12:55 am

      Tonmoi, what exactly happens while riding?

  • charanjeet November 9, 2013, 10:20 am

    I did read all the review on net and came to conclusion on that Centuro is a bike with fully loaded feature, but some people review very bad about mileage, people even not getting 40kmph after 1st service, Second issue is with service network and customer satisfaction ,availability of the workers or engineer who can come to resolved issue with new features Centuro bike.I have to buy bike very urgently and sold my older hero Glamor,
    Hero has the reliability and Re-salable value product and huge service network and parts availability
    Is Mahindra can be able to provide the reliability like Hero and others ?
    Please guide ,If any one can help me,

      Mahindra Centuro !

  • C Patel March 27, 2014, 5:44 pm

    I am confused between CENTURO and DISCOVER 100T… Please suggest me the best from this two. My friends told in earlier discussions that Bajaj Bikes used to give Milage for the first year only. Is this true?? Please suggest me as soon as possible.

    • Mukesh Rider March 31, 2014, 1:57 pm

      My brother has Discover in banglore. he purchased this bike in 2010. he used this bike two years after that he stopped using, always he was facing some problems in discover. anyway he purchased car. n I have Centuro. I purchased last year. before that only service center was the problem that also solved this year. now i can highly recommend this bike. superb mileage, comfort, pick up, engine performance, features, style makes centuro different from others bike.

    • Puneet July 21, 2014, 5:01 pm

      Go for Mahindra Centuro. You will not be disappointed. Awesome bike with pocket friendly mileage and effective security features with 5 years warranty.

  • guru June 9, 2014, 3:09 pm

    guys who r making centuro bst bike in its segment….
    never go by looks…its an unrealiable machine nd one of maa frd centuro is giving 52 mileage in city nd 58 on highways dats really v.low considering 100 cc bike nd olso he is facing sum issues dat r not been able to identity by mahindra showrum….
    one more thing although discover doesnt have high reliable engine for more then 5-6 yrs rest depend on driving like splender but its mileage is really awesum 65+ in city and 73+ on highway….

    v.few know mahindra previous bike stalio but an epic failure…so u cant ignore dis….

    indias 4th largest selling bike
    platina :
    + ponits– pickup , mileage is highest evn on worst conditn 70 + (75-87), high reliablity seen platina wd 1 lakh reading, price

  • shridhar June 12, 2014, 2:57 pm

    Hi, I purchased the bike in bangalore and i am already getting 60+ milege even before first is a very good and comfortable bike for city commuting. At this price for anti theft locking,find me lamps, and all such new features it is really a good bargain.I am very happy with the performance as of now. For the same price you would get just one engine and two wheels without any technical features from the competitors.Really a very good practical bike from an Indian company.
