The low-cost variant of the Mahindra Mojo, christened as Mojo UT300, has been spotted at a dealership in India, which hints that it is due for a launch soon. It gets a number of cost-saving equipment and features to cut down on the overall cost, so as to make it more competitive in terms of pricing.
The Mahindra Mojo UT300 gets several changes over the standard model. It gets a traditional fork as the suspension system instead of the upside down (USD) fork set up present in the regular models. However, the rear of the motorcycle continues to get a mono-shock suspension. The gold-coloured ribs on the frame and swingarm are now black. The new variant of the Mojo gets a single exhaust instead of the dual exhaust present in the existing Mojo. It sports alloy wheels with MRF Nylogrip tyres instead of the existing Pirelli Diablo Rosso II.
Apart from these changes, the new low-cost variant of Mojo gets a new fuel supply system, which is cost-effective. The fuel injection system is replaced with a carburettor. With the changes in the fuel supply system, the engine output of the motorcycle is expected to go down a bit.
The standard Mahindra Mojo is powered by a 295cc single cylinder, DOHC engine that comes with a liquid cooling and fuel injection system. The engine is capable enough to produce a maximum power output of 27 bhp at 8,000 revolutions per minute against a peak torque of 30 Nm at 5,500 revolutions per minute. It comes paired with a six-speed manual gearbox.
All these cost-cutting measures will result in the lowering of the price approximately by Rs. 30,000 from the standard model. Presently, Mahindra Mojo is priced at Rs. 1,74,520 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
