Mahindra Mojo, the flagship 300cc tourer from the home-grown two-wheeler maker, has once again set new standard by entering its name in the Indian Book of Records. The Mojo has crossed East to West India in the shortest time ever set by a motorcycle expedition. The expedition was carried out by two Mojo owners and long-time riding partners Sudeep NS and Yogesh Chavan.
Flagged off from Tezu in Arunachal Pradesh, the journey ended at Koteshwar in Gujarat. It covered a total distance of 3,706kms in just 85 hours. With this achievement, the Mahindra Mojo becomes fastest Indian motorcycle to finish East to West India Motorcycle Expedition. Earlier, the Mahindra Mojo set benchmark by covering expedition of a similar distance in 107 hours.
Sudeep and Yogesh’s landmark expedition was years in the planning. But it was finally when they bought their MOJO’s that it became possible. The bike, a proper touring machine with its stability, comfort and safety, gave them the confidence to pull it off. They were left impressed with the way it tackled challenges posed by such a grueling ride.
Naveen Malhotra, Sr. General Manager – Sales, Marketing & Product Planning, Mahindra Two Wheelers Ltd said, “The MOJO has proved its mettle yet again. Sudeep and Yogesh’s feat is an unprecedented achievement. The MOJO with its tour inclined DNA and state-of-the-art engine makes it an ideal bike to overcome long distances.”
Commenting on this achievement, Yogesh Chavan, said, “I have been riding for several years now and have ridden many different bikes. But the MOJO clearly stands out for its comfort, ease of riding and the confidence it inspires from a rider. That made the MOJO the obvious choice for our expedition.”
His riding partner Sudeep NS said, “If you’re a rider keen to ride far and wide to unexplored places in your search for new stories and experiences, I can recommend no better bike than the MOJO.”
