Mahindra Mojo cruiser motorcycle receives a new more affordable variant – the Mojo UT300. Priced at Rs 1.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Mahindra Mojo UT300 is offered with an additional Rs 10,000 introductory benefit that will last till March 2018. The new stripped down variant of the Mojo XT300 misses out several premium features that are standard on the original model. Besides this, the sports tourer gets 295cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, which is now boosted with carburettor fuel system.

Official bookings for the Mojo UT300 were commenced in January, 2018. Interested buyers can book the bike by paying a token amount of Rs 5,000.
The new model is a low-cost, stripped down variant of the standard model. It is devoid of several high-end features, and gets carburetted engine instead of fuel injected unit. While the standard Mojo is priced at Rs 1.7 lakh, the new variant is made available at Rs 1.49 lakh (all, ex-showroom Delhi). The latter one is around Rs 21,000 more affordable than the former. With the new UT300 variant, Mahindra aims to challenge the Bajaj Dominar 400 and others in its league.
The new low-cost Mojo UT300 variant derives its power from the same 292cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. However, this powertrain is a carburettor unit instead of fuel injector. The official power and torque outputs are still under the wraps. With carburettor motor, the new UT300 model will see a small dip in performance figures. The regular model offers a maximum power output of 27bhp at 8,000rpm and a peak torque of 30Nm at 5,500rpm. Transmitting power to the rear wheel is a 6-speed gearbox.
Similar to the regular model, the low-cost model will be high on fuel efficiency. The mileage figure is yet to be revealed, though it is likely to offer 30kmpl to 35kmpl in real-world condition.
Mahindra Mojo UT300 Top Speed
The top speed of the new UT300 stands around 150-155kmph. The bike can accelerate to 100kmph from standstill in less than 10 seconds.
Design and styling of the new Mojo variant is exactly similar to the regular XT300 model. Though, it lacks some of premium features offered on the latter one. Instead of premium USD (Upside-Down forks), the bike comes fitted with the conventional telescopic front forks. Adding to it, it also misses out on Mojo’s twin exhausts and features a single-sided setup. It reduces the overall weight of the bike, and improves its overall performance. The Mahindra Mojo UT300 has ditched the Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres for the MRF tyres. Besides, this affordable motorcycle misses out on LED daytime running lights (DRLs) which are positioned above the twin-pod headlights. It also lacks the gold-coloured accents.
Dimensionally, the UT300 remains unchanged. Just like the standard XT300, it measures 2,100mm, 800mm and 1165.5mm in length, width and height, respectively. The bike has a wheelbase of 1,465m, while the ground clearance stands at 173.5mm. It comes with a fuel tank of 21-litres capacity.
As mentioned above, the bike gets inverted telescopic forks with 143mm travel at the front suspension instead of upside-down forks. At the rear axle, it gets the offset monoshock unit. Braking duties on the bike are continue to be performed by 320mm and 240mm front and rear disc brakes respectively. The motorcycle is assembled with 17-inch alloy wheels and MRF tyres.
