Mahindra 2-Wheelers has launched the new Mojo UT 300 priced at Rs 1.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The UT badging stands for ‘Universal Tourer’ and Mahindra is offering a Rs 10,000 introductory benefit on the Mojo UT 300, which is valid till March 2018.
The UT 300 loses out considerably in terms of equipment in order to make it more affordable. The ongoing standard Mojo has been rebranded as the Mojo XT 300 or Xtreme Tourer 300. The UT300 will be sold alongside the XT300.
Powering the UT300 is the same 292cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine but gets a carburettor fuel system instead of fuel injection which produces 23 hp @ 7500 rpm and 25.2 Nm @ 5000 rpm. Fuel injected XT 300 produces 27hp and 30Nm of torque. The UT300 also loses out twin exhausts for a single-sided setup as seen on XT 300.
The wheelbase and ground clearance of the UT 300 is rated at 1460 mm and 165 mm compared to 1465 mm and 173.5 mm. The UT 300 rides on MRF tyres, instead of the Pirellis available on the XT 300.
Aesthetically, the bike remains identical to the XT 300 . Noticeable changes are the missing LED DRLs, which sit above the twin-pod headlights in the standard bike, and the lack of gold-coloured accents.
Priced at Rs 1.49 lakh, the UT300 costs Rs 21,000 less than the standard Mojo (XT300) that’s priced at Rs 1.70 lakh
