the 220 cc Karizma ZMR retails for 1.1 lakhs on road. i think 1.5 L is apt for this 300 cc bike.

but we still dont know the complete feature list. if its loaded with features & goodies, we never know, at that price, it might turn out to be a good deal.

But still it is a Honda. This one is an unknown quantity. Anyone remember the Comet?

I personally would wait at least a year before buying it.

A 1x2 exhaust system!? Is one a cosmetic (lightweight) dummy?

Bullet UCE is a 350 cc bike still retails from 90k to 1.2L
CC shlould not be the only consideration for deciding the price.

When Karizma was launched Hero honda had already established their hold on the motorcycle market plus with the technology back-up from Honda they could always demand a premium.

Mahindra is getting into a motorcycle market which is still a relatively new territory for them. We still dont know if this technological collaboration with some firm. They have somehow priced the 110cc bike reasonably, but I feel they have gone wrong with the 300cc pricing.
cheers!!

I would like to see one model sans the gold finish, especially the headlamps and one matt black variant .. something like this:
Well done there my man if you did the blacking out. THAT is exactly what I would have done had I got the bike. And to be honest. The bike suddenly looks MUCH MUCH better after the black treatment..infact..I quite like it.. Damn two pages ago I hated the looks! :P

After the teasers, all the wait and excitement has ended up with a disappointment. 1.75L ex-showroom for a single cylinder is too steep for me, specially when one looks at 225cc single cylinder Karizma for 1.1L OTR.

And strangely Ninja 250R with parallel twin looks attractive at 3L, when you see who it comes from and where it is manufactured.

Looking for a comfortably tourer. I guess I am back to waiting for Thunderbird Twin Spark with a 500cc plant.

Just a personal view, dont mean to offend anyone. I do not like the head light assembly, nor do i like the fuel tank and the horizontal tube frame (below the fuel tank), which just does not seem nice and right when every other bike maker has found a downward angled frame to me the most efficient.

I think Mahindra tried a little too hard to differentiate themselves from the rest in the looks department. But i must say the rest of the bike, namely the engine block, front/rear suspension and brakes look world class.

P.S I dont like the price either

Mojo - who picked that name, seriously? I can see the Advt now....

GF (looking concerned) - You are not yourself lately.
BF (looking pale) - I think I lost my mojo.
GF (cheerfully) - Not to worry, you can get it back at your nearest Mahindra bike showroom
<TaDaaa.... enter Mojo>
BF (back in form, riding his Mojo) - Oh baby, behave!
Tag line - now get your mojo back for just 1.75L

Technical specification:
The Mojo features a four-stroke, fuel-injected, single-cylinder and liquid-cooled 292cc powerplant. Double overhead camshafts (DOHC) operate this engine's four valves. Peak power is a healthy 25.8bhp at 8500rpm. Max torque is 2.5kgm at 7000rpm.

I expected the 300cc bike to be high revving ! But sadly it isn't ! The bike makes peak power and torque at levels similar to the Pulsar ! It will be interesting to see the drive-ability of the bike.

The Mojo seems to be aimed at the RE CL500 market, having similar specs [26 bhp, tourer, etc], except that it is darned ugly compared to the CL500, which despite its other problems looks exquisite.

I cannot see that many would buy the Mojo, when the CL500 (hopefully with its teething problems taken care off) offers a more attractive and cheaper alternative.

If, on top of everything, the Mojo is a copy of a cheap Italian MC, all I can say is shame on Mahindra! At least the CL 500 was designed from scratch by RE.

^^ Yes it does.

I must admit that it is looking much much better in these pictures than the ones those were poster earlier. With a single round headlamp within a small fairing (harley Sportster style) it would have been a stunner.

It will take a lot of time for M&M to build a brand image in two wheelers. People won't be too eager to buy a bike/scooter from them, anymore than they will be to buy a jeep from TVS or Bajaj!

What is the reputation of this Malaguti, anyway? Are they any good?
