Gusto 110 is one of the most feature-rich scooters in the Indian market. The only other scooter that matches it in terms of features is its bigger sibling, Gusto 125. From the height adjustable seat to the remote flip key and guide-me lamps, the Gusto 110 is the first scooter to offer some car-like features in a very affordable package. The design is a bit mechanical especially from the front with faux grills and a prominent Mahindra logo dominating the front body panel, although, overall the scooter looks conventional. It comes with telescopic front forks with 12-inch wheels at both ends.
Guide-me and Find-me lamps.
Extra front storage for keeping small things like mobile.
Height adjustable seat.
Mahindra has tried to play it safe with the design of the Gusto 110 by keeping it more or less conventional looking, although, it manages to find its own uniqueness with the slightly mechanical looking front end. The front body panel is dominated by a pair of faux grills, left-right indicators and a prominent Mahindra logo. The headlight assembly is mounted on the handlebar in a typical fashion. There’s good legroom on the floorboard followed by a generous rear bodywork which hides the engine and the under seat storage. The build quality is sturdy and although it can be better.
In a typical scooter fashion, the rider sits completely upright on the Gusto 110 with an absolutely each reach to the handlebar and the available switches. There’s ample space to rest and move the legs around on the floorboard. The seat is well-padded and decently wide as well. The front telescopic forks contribute to the overall comfort as well.
The Gusto 110 comes with what Mahindra calls the M-Tec engine with a displacement of 109.6cc and producing 8 BHP of power at 7,500 RPM and 9 NM of torque at 5,500 RPM. The performance is competitive and the Gusto can hold its own against other 110cc scooters in its class.
The Gusto 110 comes with a gearless transmission like the rest of the scooters in the category. This setup provides seamless and a linear power delivery for complete ease-of-use in city traffic.
The Gusto 110 comes with 130mm drum brakes at both ends. The braking system provides enough stopping power for the kind of performance this scooter is capable of giving, however, over the time the front drum brake can feel spongy so it would be nice to have an option of a front disc brake.
The M-Tec 110cc engine is quite frugal and is capable of delivering competitive fuel efficiency among its peers. Also, the fuel tank capacity of 6 litres is one of the best in its class.
