The Gusto 125 is powered by a 124.6cc, 4-stroke, air-cooled M-Tec petrol engine that develops 8.5 BHP @ 7,000 rpm and 10 Nm of torque @ 5,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a CVT gearbox. The scooter comes with drum brakes at the front and rear.

The Gusto 125 uses the same platform as the Gusto 110. Both scooters look similar except for some cosmetic tweaks, different colours, decals and badges.

All the features available on the Gusto 110 have been carried over to the 125. These include a height adjustable seat, find-me and guide-me lamps, LED pilot lamps, tubeless tyres and remote flip key.

Like the 110, the Gusto 125 gets a telescopic fork suspension at the front and a coil-type, hydraulic suspension at the rear. The scooter rides on 12-inch wheels shod with 90/90-12 section tyres.

Pardon me for the harsh tone but can Mahindra ever design an automobile without 'in-your-face' styling elements? Just look at the front end of the Gusto and you'll know what I mean! Standing out from the competition is good but why go to such an extent? And the lesser said about those blue wheels, the better.

Is it a scooter or moped?
The wheels look a bit large for a scooter. May be it's the new styling trend in scooters now a days.

Feels quite aggressive looking and also proportional. Overall a good job. I stay in Chennai and if there are service centers nearby then I will consider this one.

TVS Wego & TVS Jupiter also have these 12'' Wheels. Gusto is the 3rd scooter to get 12'' Wheels but not alloy like Tvs scooters.!

Gusto looks smaller in height but its seat height is tad more than Activa. Height adjustable seats is a much needed feature as the majority of the users are ladies and school going boys and girls (underage drivers, unfortunately) who's feet cant touch the ground while sitting on the scooter, this feature will allow them to have better confidence while driving.
