Mahindra two-wheelers have just teased the Mojo UT300 on its social media platforms. For those not in the know, the motorcycle is the low-cost version of the standard Mahindra Mojo. The said model has already started reaching dealerships in India and its bookings have already commenced at selected dealerships at a token amount of Rs 5,000. Our sources close to the development had already reported the price of the new Mahindra Mojo UT300 and according to them, the motorcycle will come with an ex-showroom price of close to Rs 1.50 lakh. Speaking of the prime cost-cutting measures, the Mahindra Mojo UT300 will come with conventional telescopic forks at the front, ditching the inverted forks that come on the regular XT300 model. Besides, the UT300 model runs on MRF tyres instead of the grippier Pirelli rubber.
There is no LED DRL (Daytime Running Light) strip at the front as well which is another step to keep the cost in check. The UT300 model has also sacrificed on one exhaust setup and hence, will come with a single unit only when compared to the twin silencers on the standard Mojo.
Here is the new Mahindra Mojo UT300 teaser video:
Coming to the powertrain, the Mahindra Mojo UT300 gets the same 295cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled engine from the standard model. However, the fuel injection has been replaced by a carburettor and hence, one may get to see a slight revision in power and torque figures. The engine on the Mojo XT300 is good for churning out respective power and torque outputs of 27 bhp and 30 Nm.
Mahindra Mojo has not been able to gather the full attention of the enthusiasts in the market and its higher price tag when compared to the competition is one of the reasons. The prime rival to the Mojo is the Bajaj Dominar 400 that currently retails in India at a starting price of Rs 1.41 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). In order to fight the pricing factor, Mahindra is coming up with a more affordable version of Mojo that might do the much-needed trick for it.
The price announcement of the new Mahindra Mojo UT300 will take place in the coming days. We believe that the motorcycle will be launched in a total of three colour options viz Blue, Red and White. More details to follow soon, so stay tuned with us!
