Mahindra Mojo Overview
MahindraвЂ™s 295cc bike, Mojo gets most of the boxes ticked starting from design to the ride quality and comfort. Albeit, there are few loop holes but they are not strong enough to overpower the positives of the bike. Starting with the design, Mahindra has crafted the bike well, it has an aggressive stance and the front profile in particular appears assertive. Up front, are the round twin head light units placed beneath the LED strips. Instrument cluster comes with an analogue tachometer and it also gets a LCD speedometer. The most admirable thing about the outer styling is that it isnвЂ™t overboard; Mahindra has managed to come up with a well balanced silhouette. Fuel tank measuring 21 litres, features prominent angles and MahindraвЂ™s logo on each side. Ride height is comfortable, although the height of the bike is not very high. There isnвЂ™t enough space for the pillion; in fact the rear seat tapers into the tail lights. Gap between the rear wheel and tail is a bit too much appearing gawky. LED tail lamp and brake lamp lend sharp stance to the bike. Switch gears are laced so as they can be reached easily from handles. Pirelli tyres in front and rear provide a good grip to the bike. Use of golden and metallic finish in front, rear and sides goes well with the flexuous design.
Mahindra Mojo Engine & Transmission
Powered by the 295 cc single cylinder engine, the bike promises to be frugal in terms ofefficiency. The claimed fuel economy by Mojo within city conditions is around 30 kms in a litre while on highways the two-wheeler is claimed to run up to 35 kms in a litre. A part of the premium bike segment, Mojo commits to deliver a fair mileage.

A six-speed, one up and five down transmission is mated to the single cylinder engine.
Mahindra Mojo Performance and Handling
MahindraвЂ™s premium offering, Mojo is well suited for the highway run than city. It takes a while to get into action, but once it comes in form it does not give much of an opportunity to complain. Suspension set up includes USD forks up front and monoshock box-section swingarm at rear. This set up is quite impressive as it manages to absorb most of the rough patches and bumps on the way. Power stopping duties are done by 320mm disc brake in front and 240mm disc brakes at rear. One of the other high points of the bike is the Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres that lend Mojo a fine grip and handling ability on road. Also, the dual exhausts placed at rear grunt out a pleasurable sound; however they add considerable weight to the bike. Overall, MahindraвЂ™s attempt at the premium bike segment is appreciable. As mentioned in the beginning, with most of the parameters getting thumbs up, Mojo comes out as a potential contender in its segment.
