MahindraMojo motorcycle is making a comeback and it will feature a combined mix of elements borrowed from its previous variants – the Mojo UT 300 and Mojo XT 300. The new Mojo 300 with ABS will be priced at Rs 1.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Bengaluru) and owing to the hike in production costs, the new 2019 Mahindra Mojo 300 ABS variant’s price will see an increase of approx Rs 4,000.
The new Mojo 300 also comes with additional hardware specs such as the monoshock and telescopic fork borrowed from the Mahindra Mojo UT 300 variant. In comparison, the outgoing Mojo XT 300 motorcycle used to be offered with monoshock and USD fork fitments. The front suspension of the 2019 Mojo measures 143.5mm whereas the Mojo bike’s rear suspension is 135mm.
Mahindra will equip the Mojo 300 with the 294.72cc single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine borrowed from the Mojo XT 300 that produces 26.34bhp of max power at 7,500rpm – which is quite low on the power end – whereas the previous Mojo XT variant could churn out 27.22bhp of peak power at 8,000rpm.
Interestingly, the torque has reduced by 2Nm i.e., 28Nm from the previous figure of 30Nm, however, the 5,500rpm remains the same. Strangely, the reason for the dip in performance figures is yet to be known.
The new Mahindra Mojo 300 bike continues to use the 21-litre fuel tank shared from the Mojo XT 300 and comes with an ideal seat height measuring 815mm, which is basically developed as Mahindra’s touring motorcycle.
Unlike the outgoing Mojo UT 300 variant that ran on MRF Nylogrip Zappers the and XT which used Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres, the new 2019 Mojo 300 bike will come fitted with Pirelli Angel CT tyres measuring a 110/70-R17 at the front and 140/70-R17 at the rear.
The new braking unit is from Bybre which replaces the J.Juan brake system. The new Mojo bike’s braking unit comprises of 320mm front disc and a 240mm rear disc, which is similar to the Mojo UT and the XT variants.
