2020 Mahindra Mojo BS6 Teased, Launch Soon
Mahindra will look to price the bike competitively in order to sell it in decent numbers.
The 2020 Mahindra Mojo 300 ABS BS6 has been officially teased and by the looks of it, the launch of the bike is just around the corner.
The image shows us that the silhouette of the Mojo BS6 remains the same as the BS4 version, meaning the only change will be made to the engine and exhaust for emissions compliance.
A test mule of the Mahindra Mojo BS6 teased in the image was recently spotted near Pune and as far as we could work out, the twin-headlights, body panels, wheels and brakes were all similar-looking to the Mojo BS4.
Even the conventional telescopic forks seem to be carried over on the bike that is expected to launch this very month.
With regards to the BS6 compliance, the exhaust will receive an additional catalytic converter chamber like the Jawa BS6 with which the engine is shared.
To the uninitiated, the BS4 Mojo 300 had a 294.72cc, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that belted out 26.29 HP and 28 Nm of torque.
We can expect the power to stay the same with the Mojo 300 ABS BS6 if not improve. What we can also expect Mahindra to do is to retail the bike as a single variant.
Yup, Mahindra knows that the Mojo 300 ABS BS6 will be placed in a segment that has a lot of competition and hence it will price it competitively.
The BS4 version of the bike was on sale for Rs. 1.88 lakhs (ex-showroom) and although the 2020 Mahindra Mojo BS6 will be priced higher, we have to see how much dearer it will be.
The 2020 Mojo 300 ABS BS6 will compete with the Royal Enfield Himalayan that is priced at Rs. 1.89 lakhs and Bajaj Dominar 400 that costs Rs. 1.94 lakhs (prices ex-showroom, Mumbai).
Although it has never been the segment leader, the Mojo did have decent response. If priced well, the entry-level tourer will strike a chord among buyers looking for a nippy machine to take on long-ish journeys.
