Mahindra Mojo UT300 launched at Rs. 1.49 lakh


Mahindra has launched a new variant of the Mojo named UT300 at prices starting from Rs. 1.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). As an introductory offer, Mahindra is offering a discount of Rs. 10,000 on the UT300 until March 31, 2018.

The Mojo UT300 is placed below the standard Mojo which is now named as the XT300. In terms of its dimensions, the Mojo UT300 measures 2,115 mm in length, 800 mm in width and 1,150 mm in height. Its wheelbase is 1,460 mm which is 5 mm shorter than the XT300 however seat height has increased to 818 mm. The bike weighs 163.5 kg (dry weight) and comes with a 21-litre fuel tank. It is available in 2 monotone colour options Volcano Red and Ocean Blue. 

The Mojo UT300 looks identical to the XT300 however it loses out on some features. Instead of upside-down front forks, the more affordable variant gets conventional telescopic forks in the front and a monoshock in the rear. It has a digital instrument panel and twin-pod headlamps but lacks LED DRLs. It also loses the twin-exhaust setup and instead, it gets a single side-mounted exhaust. 

The Mojo UT300 is powered by the same 295 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine however, instead of fuel injection it gets a conventional carburettor. The engine produces 22.7 BHP @ 7,500 rpm and 25.2 Nm of peak torque @ 5,500 rpm and is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. Braking is handled by a 320 mm petal type disc in the front and a 240 mm disc in the rear. To keep costs down, Mahindra does not offer the Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres from the XT300 on the UT300. It rides on 17-inch alloy wheels shod with 110/70 and 140/70 section MRF Nylogrip Zapper tyres in the front and rear respectively.
