Mahindra Mojo is expected to be incorporated with a 300 cc, liquid cooled, 4-valve DOHC engine which will produce a power output of 25 bhp at 8500 rpm, and peak torque of 24 Nm at 7000 rpm. A 6-speed gearbox is coupled with the engine and sources are speculating that it will be named VPI-2. Also, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) will not be offered in this bike and instead it will be assisted with petal discs at front and rear. Suspension types of Paioli upside-down forks and gas charged mono-shocks will be used at front and rear, respectively. It must be noted that this bike will have Pirelli Sport Demon tyres which are known for their stupendous grip on uneven terrains. Also, multi-spoke alloy wheels will be enhancing the looks of Mahindra Mojo. Furthermore, dual exhausts are provided in this bike which give a sporty look to the whole attire.

Currently, Mahindra has tasted success once with the Centuro bike in the 110 cc category, whereas sales for the Pantero never really raked up huge numbers. A senior Mahindra 2-wheelers official said, “The scooter segment is extremely important for the company and we will come out with brand new models from time to time.” Post the launch of Mojo 300 in the power-bike segment , the Indian bike-makers potential in the this segment shall be out in the open.
