It will be powered by Liquid Cooled, 4-Stroke 2 Valves OHC engine that produces the maximum power of 10.5 kW and torque of 12.7 Nm. The top speed of ZIR will be 110 kmph.
As per sources Mahindra is also planning to launch 150cc scooter but the company did not reveal anything about the upcoming product or its timeline for launch. Mahindra’s development team could surely make use of the French manufacturer’s “Peugeot” technical expertise that will benefit in the overall development of the scooter right from the build quality to the design and handling. The company had imported a few of the Peugeot scooters in November last year for R&D and display purposes and we hope to see a bit of European influence on Mahindra’s upcoming offering.
