Earlier we had spyshots of the same bike being tested and they had Telescopic forks and now the bike is spotted again with USD forks.
An all new variant of Mahindra’s flagship motorcycle Mojo has been spied testing in Pune. The bike is expected to come with lesser features than its predecessor. The newer version should now carry a BS4 complaint engine. The model is expected to be sold throughout India through a new Mojo specific dealership that will be launched in all major cities.
Mahindra Mojo has been doing quite well in the Indian market since its launch. The newer version of the bike will be an affordable variant of its premium sports tourer. The spotted motorcycle misses out some of the critical features which are available in the outgoing model.
Features missing are Pirelli tyres and twin exhaust. Earlier (article link below) the motorcycle was spotted with telescopic forks, a carburetor, a missing liquid-cooling radiator. If a carburetor variant is coming, expect it to make less power than the current version because it will be difficult for the manufacturer to meet emission norms with such a large engine.

If Mahindra can crack, it is for the better good as it will be able to get the pricing right for the base variant. Also, if we shoot an arrow in the dark, then what we think is that this could be a 200cc variant with a smaller block and piston, which will tend to look the same like the 300cc variant on the outside as far the looks of the engine is considered.
Due to its aggressive and bold stance the current outgoing model is doing quite well in the market for Mahindra in a very competitive segment with a lot of newer bikes coming in these days. A lower priced variant on the other hand will help them to reach out the mass market.
The bike is powered by the same 286cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine; however, with EFI technology for now. The Spotted Mahindra revealed no cosmetic changes as such. The bike features the same twin-pod headlamps, up side down forks at the front, LED tail lamp and single disc brake setup at both the ends.
Mahindra is also planning an ABS equipped variant of the bike, which was also spotted couple of times testing on road. The new dual-channel ABS will increase the kerb weight of the bike but will help in improving its braking capabilities and driving dynamics.
We can expect the newer version of Mahindra Mojo to arrive by the festive season of this year. The bike will compete against the likes of KTM Duke 250, Royal Enfield Himalayan and Bajaj Dominar 400 in the Indian market.
