Mahindra Mojo 300ABS BSVI – 1st Impressions
Riding down the city roads is always home ground when on the Mahindra Mojo. The responsive yet sophisticated throttle is handed down to this generation from BSIV. Adding to the fervor are the brakes, The Bybre’s bite into the road with the ABS system keeping you from swerving off your course. The riding stance is without a doubt a constant.
Mahindra Mojo 300ABS BSVI Vs Mojo 300ABS BSIV Vs Mahindra Mojo UT300 Vs Mahindra Mojo XT300
Tyres – Diablo Rosso 2 VS MRF Zapper VS Pirelli Angel CT
Front Suspension – USDs vs the conventional telescopic tubes
The brakes – J Juan vs Bybre
Seat – XT300 vs UT300 and 300ABS
Power figures – like looks, they are decieving! (in the BS6)
Dual exhaust VS Single exhaust
Much has been said in terms of these online. Nevertheless, the MRF zappers are a personal favorite here. The ride in question involved highways, city and a dash of soft-roading. They carry a different aura altogether and offer a superior riding experience.
Apart from cost and look, the absence of the USDs make the Mojo a bit leaner. The telescopic forks with the brace inspires a lot of confidence.. Coupled with a 110 biased tyre be it stock or aftermarket, you do not really missed the premium Rossos. Indeed at low speeds the steering feels heavy, once to start carving corners that feel will disappear in time. Nevertheless it keeps the Mojo steadfast steady.
The Bybre’s do offer adequate bite and instill confidence when the ABS kicks in. Although not sintered they offer as better stopping power than most some its comrades in its class.
Let’s play the Easter egg game here. The option for front risers and handlebar risers allow for a taller motorcycle, no? However, where almost all major manufacturers gave up the chase Team Mahindra picked up the scent. For all good reason a touring motorcycle is “Rider Comfortable”. What about the pillion? Contrary to critics, to re-iterate this is where MTWL scored.
They made the pillion seat as much comfortable, here’s why:
- The seat cushioning is softer yet denser that the competition
- It is longer and wider, yet accommodates most body types
- Best in class under thigh support makes the perfect cherry in the pie
- The stock seat cover avoids any unwanted sliding in braking situations
- Sans the spilt seat form factor it maintains its sport bike look without going commuter
To sum it up, you can go play in the hills with the boys, come back and in the evening take your lady out on a date. Unless, you missed a spot while washing the bike she won’t notice the underpinnings stashed with memoirs of the morning’s adventure.
Power Figures – To Torque it off!
Well everybody talks Bhp and Torque. Certainly, direct comparison cannot be made here. However, the BS6 motorcycle takes the baton of the bulletproof engine over rather well. The Mahindra Mojo still cruises along the highway seamlessly. Like we said the figures are deceiving. What seems rather meak on paper, when to hammer that throttle on a straight it feels like the raw punch of the UT 300 coupled with the linear power delivery of the XT300. Also the fuel gauge took a tadbit longer to drop than the BS4
Mahindra Mojo BS6 starts at ₹199900 *ex-showroom :
- Black Pearl – ₹199900
- Garnet Black – 2,06,000
- Ruby Red – 2,11,000
- Red Agate – 2,11,000
We can attribute this to:
- An ECU remap and tuning
- 5 additional relays for efficient electrical load & ECU management
- Improved torque
- The Mahindra Mojo BS6 also offers up to 10% increase in fuel economy (under standard test conditions)
Now let’s talk about Torque. Generally, there’s little room to feel the torque out. The media unit is barely 3500 odd kilometers old. In human terms this baby hasn’t started walking yet. Certainly at low speeds a steady throttle is required. Surprisingly it seems to handle off-road climbs better than the BS4.(well that can be disputable for now).
The 2020 Mahindra Mojo 300ABS BSVI is quite a package with its handling and other dynamics. Also, the MRF tyres although never fail to disappoint, more tread patterns can be offered. The twin pod headlamps are brighter than ever before and the yellow beams add that nostalgia in today’s world of white LED lighting. First impressions have certainly left us planning to dent our wallet with full tank refills of fuel.
After all too much is never enough…
