Mahindra 2-Wheelers has silently launched a new front disc brake variant of the Centuro commuter motorcycle in the country, priced at Rs. 52,210/- (ex-showroom, Maharashtra). The new variant sits on top of the motorcycle’s lineup comprising of the Rockstar, N1 and O1 variants and gets a single front petal disc brake along with the features from the 01 trim. The automaker had first showcased the Centuro with a front disc brake at the 2014 Auto Expo last February but has managed to launch the version over a year later.

Power on the Mahindra Centuro comes from a 106.7cc air-cooled, single-cylinder MCI-5 engine, churning out 8.5 PS at 7000 RPM and 8.5 Nm of torque at 5500 RPM, paired to a 4-speed gearbox. The bike comes with a host of features on board including a remote flip key, anti-theft alarm with immobiliser, find me lamps, guide lights and a digital display on the instrument console. The bike rides on alloy wheels while stopping power at the rear comes from a 130 mm drum brake.

The 2015 Mahindra Centuro has now become one of the few entry-level commuter motorcycles to offer a front disc brake, at least as an optional feature. In addition to the Centuro, the Honda CB Twister, Bajaj Discover 100 M and the Hero Passion Pro offer front disc brake variants in the segment. The Centuro range starts from Rs. 43,210/- (ex-showroom, Maharashtra) for the base Rockstar version.
