Mahindra set to rock the two wheeler market!
Mahindra will soon make its first launch in the two wheelers market through Mahindra2wheelers. This info is just enough for our vicky spy team to unearth its products line-up. Again our spy team proved why they are best in the business. They ranged up and told us the complete details of Mahindra’s two new products – Rodeo and Duro.
Unlike its sibling flyte, the new rodeo is little muscular and swanky. The trapezoidal headlamps dominates the front cowl as the vertical turn indicators are mounted on the front apron. The fake wire mesh is just an aesthetic factor. Scroll down your eyes cautiously, you can spot a strange stuff. The mighty Mahindra logo which is used to be seen on jeeps and scorpio mounted on a scooter. Rodeo is swanky, the lines gently turn upwards as we move towards the rear part of the scooter. The silencer gets a nice chrome shield to protect the pillion. A large integrated rear tail lamp cluster and a body coloured grab rail completes the rear. Overall Rodeo looks more mature and it seems like Mahindra might position flyte as a fair sex scooter while the new rodeo will cater to mature male customers.
Both at the front and at the rear, rodeo uses drum brakes. Rodeo uses contemporary telescopic suspension at the front which Mahindra christens as “Pro-Sus” system. Rodeo rides on 3.50 -10 tyres at the front and at the rear. Rodeo features small glovebox at the front (can be useful only papers) and large underseat storage. The underseat stowage space should be able to swallow a half size helmet and your knick knacks. The blue lit instrumentations is simple and it sports an odeometer,trip meter, speedometer, clock, side stand indicator and other tell-tales.
Rodeo inherits good features of flyte like – front fuelling, front choke, front hook, ignition key with shutter,foldable foot rest, body coloured rear view mirrors and body coloured rear grab rail. The Rodeo is powered by an 125cc mill. The power rating and torque ratings are requested to keep under the wraps.
Mahindra will sell the rodeo alongwith the flyte. Together with the flyte, Rodeo will take on the Suzuki Access and Honda Activa 110cc. Rodeo will be available in wide range of colours and will be available in your nearby kinetic Mahindra2wheelers showroom.
