I suggest you take a test ride before you book. Also try riding the Access and Duro back to back if you can and share your thought on the same.

Thanks.

Rest of the product looks the same like the one we Tested.

Mahindra Scooters says it has finally launched the 125 cc Duro DZ in Punjab and Gujarat today..The company is going ga ga over the launch.

Mahindra Scooters | Facebook

The twitter link also says so. They say "We've got a #RombaSolid news for everyone in #Gujarat & #Punjab. The all-new #Mahindra #DuroDZ has finally arrived here today!"

I had to retweet "Old wine in a bigger bottle. Whats so new about the dud Duro ? Wish u could launch a totally new model.Cheers".

Kinetic was dragging its last years with these launches. We expect Mahindra with its moneybags and capabilities to have a much contemporary model line-up. The Mahindra bikes and scooters are just there for the sake of it at present.

Good write up !! Your review covered almost everything regarding Duro and also helped me make my decision. Got my Duro DZ delivered yesterday. As many members voiced, nothing new, but still a better product when compared to the earlier Duro and Nova.

I really liked the higher handle position and the telescopic front suspension. But if Mahindra has to stay in contention to lead this segment, with stiff competition from Honda and TVS, it really needs to come up with something new and better than Activa and Wego.

Looks like this is based on the GY6 platform !
There are a ton of hop up parts available for this engine!

Big bore kits, pipes, variators, racing CDI's etc! This engine should open up the scooter tuning scene in India.

Now you can buy Mahindra Duro online at http://www.snapdeal.com/brand/mahindra They are even offering additional 2 years additional warranty. On product page the price is Rs. 45810 but when you add it to cart the price is Rs. 40290.

We can also buy it at 0% EMI and use credit card etc.

It's a very innovative concept being introduced, you get a sweet discount, 6 months EMI and extended warranty plus insurance. I only wish Honda and other scooter makers take note of it and introduce it.

Honda does not need to do that or for that matter Suzuki also, their quality does all the selling.

No offense, however bad their sales and service guys might be, Honda is still the best!!
