Mahindra Mojo UT 300 Spotted With ABS

  • The Mojo 300 UT may be offered in a couple of new paint schemes.
  • We expect the bike’s 300cc single-cylinder engine to comply with BS6 emission norms.
  • Expect a price hike of around Rs 10,000 - Rs 15,000 over the current model which retails at Rs 1.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Mahindra Mojo 300 UT, the more affordable sibling of the Mojo, has been spotted outside a dealership sporting a dual-channel ABS setup. The update will help it comply with the government safety norms which states that all new two-wheelers above 150cc sold post 1st April 2019 must feature ABS as standard. The inclusion of dual-channel ABS could push the price of the bike to around Rs 1.60 lakh to Rs 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom). That’s a price hike of around Rs 10,000 - Rs 15,000 over the current Mahindra Mojo 300 UT which retails at Rs 1.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The fact that the Mojo 300 UT has been spotted at a dealership sans camouflage hints that it could be launched pretty soon. On the design front, the bike sports a new black paint scheme which isn’t available on the current version of the Mojo 300 UT. Consequently, we could expect a couple of new paint options along with new graphics, which should give the bike a breath of fresh air. But that’s about all the changes we could expect. Unfortunately, the Mojo 300 isn’t reeling in numbers for the brand, so a couple of prominent cosmetic changes could have been a welcome change for the Mojo UT 300.

On the mechanical side of things, the bike’s 300cc single-cylinder motor could be tweaked to comply with the upcoming BS6 emission norms. In order to do so, the current variant is likely to be updated with a fuel-injection system which may also affect its power figures. Although negligible, there could be a small spike in numbers compared to the current 23PS and 25.2Nm of torque. The engine comes paired with a 6-speed transmission. In terms of competition, the Mojo UT 300 will go up against the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400, the Jawa and the Royal Enfield Classic 350.

The Mojo 300 was launched in India as the brand's flagship motorcycle and was expected to do really well. However, a massive delay in its launch coupled with its quirky design didn’t gell well with enthusiasts. Nevertheless, Mahindra hasn’t given up on the bike just yet. It has been experimenting with the Mojo 300 in the past year or so in order to up its game. For instance, the brand introduced two variants of the bike: the XT, which is the top-spec model, and the UT, the more affordable version. Aside from this, Mahindra has also been working on an electric version of the bike. And given its expertise in the electric four-wheeler space, we could very well be seeing the bike sold alongside its petrol-powered counterparts pretty soon.
