Mahindra seriously needed some products to revive the dwindling sales and also not sure these are renamed products or new ones

Rodeo? This thing will be far from the usual punch a 1000lbs bull would give a cowboy! Looks puny, and if it does look like cheap plastics/fiberglass then this isn't going to make it big!

Ha big Joke. The Blaze was the only product to stand out. They should have imporved the quality of the Blaze instead of discontinuing it.

power scooters???? the 10 year old flop "kinetic nova" now is the mahindra power scooter. well, you have to give it to mahindra for trying. can we expect some real power from this vintage design?

by the way, odd isn't it that the nova (aka duro) figures in the list of "failed two wheeler models". failed before launch.

sad indeed. mahindra must get its act together and stop pussy-footing into the market and launch some real new models. the 2 wheeler market is a cut throat and fast reacting and adapting market.

When i first saw the ad i was feeling did i jump the gun, buying the Dio this year thinking that there were really going to be some POWER scooters from mahindra. But after seeing the ad closely, its the nova and the flyte... huh!! I give up.

Looks like a Diwali special from Kinetic to kick up sales. The Rodeo aka Flyte+ is a more attractive option now.

I had the same feeling which some of my fellow bhpians just mentioned above. But ONLY TILL the test drive of Mahindra DURO. That may be bland and 10 year old FLOP design. But it has got the best engine I have ever ride in a scooter in India. The power delivery is spot on. Shame on HONDA!!!

Please take my word. Test drive the Rodeo/Duro/Flyte once and I am damn sure that all of you WILL change your opinions.
