The Mahindra Mojo was announced last year and everybody got so excited that they couldn’t wait to get their hands on one. But alas, Mahindra 2 Wheelers never ended launching one and the wait for the Mojo continues. However the wait will soon end as Mahindra is finally planning to launch the Mojo in 2012. The Mahindra Mojo’s launch was postponed as the company did not want to take risk with a high performance machine. The precision for a class of this vehicle is higher and Mahindra wants to ensure it has thoroughly tested the bike before launching it. This is a good move as pulling a bike from the market due to glitches is not a good idea, rather its best to get it right the first time around.
The Mahindra Mojo project is on at the company’s R&D facility, wherein extensive tests are being carried out to ensure the Mojo lives up to all the hype. The Mahindra Mojo is powered by a 300cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-valve motor which produces 26 hp of power at 8500 RPM and 24 Nm of torque at 7000 RPM. Mated to a 6-speed gearbox, the Mojo features front and rear disc brakes and weighs 160 kgs. At the front there are 100 section tyres, while the rear get wider 150 section rubber. The Mojo uses an electronic ignition system and looks like a very promising performance motorcycle on paper.
