Mahindra has launched the BS6 version of the Mojo. The motorcycle is priced from Rs 1.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Apart from a BS6 powertrain, the new version is more or less unchanged, but gets four new colour options.
After teasing the BS6 version of the Mojo a couple of weeks ago, Mahindra has now launched the motorcycle in the country. Prices start at Rs 1.99 lakh (ex-showroom), meaning the Mojo, in its BS6 avatar, is now dearer by around Rs 4,000 over the outgoing Mojo 300 ABS BS4 version.
The BS6 version is essentially the same motorcycle as the Mojo 300 ABS sold earlier, albeit it now gets a cleaner powertrain. Apart from that, the motorcycle is now offered in four new colour options – Red Agate, Black Pearl, Ruby Red and Pearl Black. However, apart from the pearl black paint scheme, all the other paint options command a premium over the base price. The ex-showroom price, as a result, can go up to Rs 2.11 lakh depending on the colour scheme!
Powering the Mojo 300 BS6 is the same liquid-cooled 295cc single-cylinder engine. Power output is slightly down from 26bhp to 25.35bhp, while peak torque is more or less the same at 26Nm. The engine continues to come paired with a six-speed gearbox.
In terms of features and equipment, there aren’t any updates. The motorcycle comes fitted with conventional telescopic front forks and a mono-shock at the back. A 320mm front disc and 240mm rear disc are employed for braking duties. Dual-channel ABS is standard.
Bookings for the Mojo BS6 are now open at Rs 5,000. The Mojo BS6 competes with the Bajaj Dominar 400, which is better equipped, more powerful, and, surprisingly, it’s available at a lower price tag of Rs 1.94 lakh (ex-showroom).
