Mahindra is also planning to re-launch the Stallio motorcycle.

The Stallio is a 110cc commuter segment bike.

Amongst all other Mahindra 2-Wheeler products, we saw the Mojo once again - and it is still a prototype!

It has a 300cc liquid cooled performance engine. We wonder when Mahindra will actually launch the Mojo because all the hype and interest it had created earlier is now reducing. Hope it sees the production line soon.

@parrys

Thanks for the pics. Does not seem that Mahindras stall was that interesting at all. The front fuel filling option and telescopic front suspensions of Duro might find some takers but any information about the pricing part?

Even an Amir Khan branding did not help the Stallio, what else is Mahindra thinking do more for the brand?

Overall an insipid display of products.

Thanks for the pics and the details.
1. MGP3O is a big step and Mahindra deserves a pat on the back for taking a road less travelled by Indian manufacturers.
2. The scooters and commuter bikes are completely soulless and do not have even a single thing that could make them stand out from the crowd.
3. The Mojo has potential, but Mahindras need to move fast on it, before the Indian market get flooded with significantly better imports in the same category with proven records.

Is it my imagination or has the Mojo improved a wee bit in the way it looks.
On second thoughts may be I am just used to seeing it now. It is ugly.

The Duro has a underseat fuel filler, its the Rodeo which has a front fuel filling option.

Check out the link posted next to the Duro, it includes pricing as well as the review.

Thanks to Jalsa777 for the pics.

Am I seriously the only one who thinks the Mojo is the most gorgeous bike ever?
Those funky lines, that brilliant combination of red and gold, and those super-funky goggle like headlights.

Can't wait till they launch it, if they launch it, that is.

I love the Mojo as well.
But it has been horribly long since Mahindra showed it to us and still no updates on the production plan.

The teaser spoke about the Ducati Energia fuel injection and etc.


Sad that Mahindra has killed its own product due to the delay.

From the racing entry looks like Mahindra is getting seriously into 2 wheeler business. Good to have competition, more the competition, better the products we get.

Three 125 CC scooters? are there any differences except for the looks? one competing with other? any idea why this strategy?

It's a marketing-strategy my friend.

Mahindra's 125cc offings won't compete with each other. People have a wider list of options to choose from, under one roof. The Honda twins, the Activa and Dio, are pretty much the same underneath too. It's the same principle, IMO.

The aliens have landed. Oh wait, its just the Mahindra Mojo.

The Mojo just goes to prove that you cant take bits and pieces of different bikes, throw them into a blender and expect the final product to look like a beauty queen. Maybe it needs to remain a prototype with Mahindra using the lessons learnt from developing this in a more palatable design somewhere down the road.

Have they fixed the gearbox issues?

It seems everyone is taking a leaf out of MSIL' strategy in the B segment. Launch as many as you can in the same segment. Carpet bombing is the name of the game.

ICB have managed to scoop images of the Mahindra Mojo at Chinchwad, off Pune. Here is the link to their report:
