The Mahindra Group signalled its entry into the motorcycle segment with the introduction of two new bikes, Stallio and Mojo.

The two bikes incorporate design elements from the Mahindra-owned Italian boutique design house, Engines Engineering, which has worked for marques such as Ducati, MV Augusta and Benelli.

The 125cc Mahindra Stallio is available in two variants — self start/cast alloy wheels/digital console and kick start/spoke wheels, which are available at Rs.44,699 and Rs.41,199 (ex-showroom Pune), respectively, while the 300cc Mahindra Mojo is priced at Rs.1.75 lakh (ex-showroom Pune).

The Stallio will be available at 370 Mahindra 2 Wheelers dealerships across the country and comes with a four-year manufacturer's warranty.

The distribution model for the Mojo would be different and would be available only in select outlets.

The two wheeler sector of Mahindra aims to design and market a full range of scooters and motorcycles for the Indian and global markets. Its power scooters portfolio caters to a range of segments and now includes products such as the Mahindra Rodeo, the Mahindra Duro and the Flyte, which is targeted at the Indian woman.

“In the last 12 months, Mahindra 2 Wheelers has achieved a milestone by registering a sale of 1.50 lakh units — a clear validation of the success of our niche power scooters strategy. We are now all geared up to redefine the biking experience in India with the Stallio and the Mojo which are a potent blend of global technology and innovation and will take the category to the next level,” said Mahindra Group Vice-Chairman and Managing Director Anand Mahindra said.

“These world-class bikes are worthy additions to the Mahindra 2 Wheelers product portfolio and are part of our commitment to establish a robust, end-to-end two wheeler business in every segment of the industry,” said Anoop Mathur, President, Two Wheeler Sector and Member of the Group Executive Board, Mahindra & Mahindra.

The Stallio is available in a choice of five shades — derby red, colt black, equus blue, buckskin yellow and ranch green while the Mojo is available in two colours — red and black. Customers also have the option of customising their bikes.
