Mahindra Mojo UT300, which is the low-cost version of the original Mojo has been spotted once again. The motorcycle looks to be testing somewhere in the Northern part of the country, around the Leh Ladakh territory to be precise. The spy images shared by Times of India Auto show the test mule being completely disguised in a white colour. The motorcycle has already started reaching the company's dealerships in India and bookings at selected dealerships have also begun at a token amount of Rs 5,000. Thanks to all the cost-cutting measures, the Mahindra Mojo UT300 will be at least Rs 20,000 cheaper than the model currently on sale. The motorcycle will most likely be showcased at the coming Auto Expo 2018 with price announcement to possibly take place in the coming days. Powering the Mahindra Mojo UT300 will be the same 295cc engine that runs the existing model. The only change is that the UT300 will come with a carburetor instead of the fuel injection system.
Talking about the changes, the new Mahindra Mojo UT300 sees multiple cost-cutting measures to take on the rivalry more confidently. To start with, the motorcycle ditches the inverted forks and gets conventional telescopic forks at the front. The LED DRLs (Daytime Running Lights) have also been eliminated and the low-cost version will not be seen with any such white strips glowing in the dark. Also, the Pirelli tyres are gone and the UT300 receives MRF rubber of the same size. The Mahindra Mojo UT300 has also sacrificed one exhaust unit and hence, it will come with a single unit instead of dual exhausts seen on the present day model.
The Mahindra Mojo UT300 will challenge the likes of its closest rival Bajaj Dominar 400 in a better way in terms of pricing. The motorcycle is expected to come at a price nearing Rs 1.5 lakh (ex-showroom). Currently, the Mahindra Mojo is on sale in India at a price of Rs 1.74 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
