Let’s take steps to failure with Mahindra Mojo ABS
Here is it guys, Mahindra Mojo ABS to carry a price tag of Rs 1.88 lakh ex-showroom, Bangalore. It might seem a piece of good news at first that Mojo ABS is finally getting launched, but the problem is the price. Yes, you read that right, Mahindra Mojo ABS is too expensive for what it will offer.
The ABS-equipped bike is Rs 4,000 more pricey than the outgoing Mojo XT300. XT 300 was priced at 1.84 lakh ex-showroom when it was on sale before April 2019. The UT 300, on the other hand, was priced at Rs 1.49 lakh ex-showroom. The Mojo UT 300 has Mahindra’s attempt to provide a cheaper alternative to its feature-packed Mojo XT 300.
But the problem is this Mahindra Mojo ABS is a UT 300 model with ABS and is priced at jaw-dropping Rs 1.88 lakh ex-showroom. I cannot digest the fact that this bike is going to set another standard for bikes which offers the least value for your hard-earned money. There are no golden USD forks, no dual exhaust, DRL have gone missing, and the existence of EFI is in question. The tyres, however, are upgraded from MRFs for Pirelli Angel CT ones.
powering the Mahindra Mojo ABS is same 294cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine. This engine makes more power than the UT 300 at 26.3bhp at 7500rpm and 28Nm torque at 5500rpm. The XT 300, on the other hand, pumped out 27.2bhp at 8000rpm and 30 Nm torque at same 5500rpm. One can argue that it is fueled by EFI with re-mapped ECU. Or, it is carburetor which is retuned to produce more power than UT 300. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
Mahindra Mojo ABS to fall into the Abyss within few months of launch
Braking is taken care of by 320 petal disc at the front with radially mounted ByBre caliper instead of J. Juan Calipers. The rear is same old 240 mm Disc brake unit. Telescopic forks and rear monoshock does the job of shock absorption. Front tyre is 110/70-R17 and rear tyre measure 140/70-R17. But the best part of XT 300 was that it had Pirelli Diablo Rosso II which offered amazing grip.
So, it is very much clear that Mahindra is going to launch a motorcycle which will offer least value for your money. Expect the bike to fail miserably as Dominar 400 is now much better equipped than ever before. Also, Dominar 400 is priced at Rs 1.74 lakh ex-showroom, a whole Rs 14,000 less than Mahindra Mojo ABS.
