Possession of distinct ribs that wrap around the fuel tank gives the bike a rough and tough ,as well the red stripes and star adorn it giving a command attention look. However the excess crafting work that is being chiseled at the side panel and twin gold pipes that seems to cover the lower portion of the tank seems to ruin the overall beauty. The Centuro Rockstar's fuel cap blends into the fuel tank in seamless and stylish manner.
The MCi-5 engine which is used to power the Mahindra Pantero is being choosen to power the Mahindra Centuro RockStar to promote both the power and fuel economy.
