Review of Mahindra Pantero
Mahindra Pantero OverView
Mahindra Motors started their campaign in the biking industry after taking over the falling Kinetic Motors and soon came up with their first geared motorcycle, the Stallio. However, Mahindra Stallio didn't prove much successful in creating a stir in the market as it was marred with many flaws and Mahindra had to soon pull out the Stallio off the grid. Taking this hitch as a lesson, Mahindra & Mahindra set up a state-of-the-art Research and Development centre in Pune, employing not less than 175 young and brilliant engineers who brought a spanking new motorcycle to life for the Mahindra brand in just a span of 18 months, to be known today as the Pantero.
With the Pantero, Mahindra 2 Wheelers finally hit the right chord for playing their own song of success in the Indian bike industry after the unsuccessful run with Mahindra Stallio. Built to take on mighty rivals like the Hero MotoCorp Splendor series and the Bajaj Discover series, Mahindra Pantero 110 has been loaded with a wide array of first-in-class features that provide it with a clear edge over rivals who have already proven their mettle in the market and have formed a strong bond of trust with the buyers.
Mahindra Pantero Designing
Mahindra Pantero 110 at first glance looks very similar to Mahindra Stallio, but when one gives it a good look, designing differences between the two starts surfacing up on the board. Designers at the Mahindra 2 Wheelers camp have left no stone unturned in making Pantero as stylish as any other entry level commuter. With an overall dimensional attributes of 2000 x 735 x 1050 mm (l x w x h), Mahindra has made this bike adequately long, wide and tall so as to provide enough room, space and comfort to all kinds of riders. The designers at the R&D division of Mahindra 2 Wheelers at Pune have done everything for removing the previous flaws that prevented Stallio from becoming a hit. First of all, for making Pantero differentiable from its predecessor, the bike has been given a bikini fairing and it houses LED pilot lamps – a first-in-class feature which is going to be an element of USP for this bike. Mahindra has also given a brilliant design to the information cluster for pulling those buyers towards the Pantero who are looking for a decent bike which comes with some top-notch and first-in-class features. This digital information cluster is a combination of a digital speedometer and tachometer, which is surely going to be an another popular salient feature.
Mahindra Pantero 110 Appearance
On the side profile, the bike comes with black alloy wheels along with black mechanical parts which add up to the final touch of this sober and attractive ride. Moreover, for adding a striking appearance, some cool graphic work goes from the tank to the rear panel. The rear shock absorbers are painted in red and a chrome heat shield is added on to the exhaust pipe for adding up a shine on the side profiles. Going back to the rear, an exuberant tail light can be found which houses multi-bulb LEDs and clearly gives the bike an attractive look. Adding to this is a black grab rail that gives a uniform look to this nice commuter entrant from camp Mahindra. All in all, Mahindra Pantero is a bike that carries on forward appearance cues from the Stallio, but still feels like a refreshingly new ride which easily grabs attention on the streets.
Mahindra Pantero Engine And Performance
Mahindra Pantero 110 is powered by an indigenously designed MCi-5, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine of 106.7cc displacement value. This engine, with the help of the revolutionary MCi-5 technology, gives an impressive power output of 8.38bhp at 7500rpm and a whopping peak torque of 8.5Nm at 5500rpm. Mahindra engineers have perfectly mated this 110cc engine with a constant mesh 4-speed transmission gearbox for effectively conjuring up a smooth speed to gear ratio. For the Pantero, Mahindra has used a standard 52.4 mm bore and a 49.5 mm stroke. Riding this 110cc commuter feels very easy and smooth and with this creation Mahindra 2 Wheelers seems to have finally succeeded in creating a motorcycle that would easily gain a worthy applaud from both the critics as well as the commuters. The bike notches up from 0 to 60kmph in a respectable time window of 8.85 seconds, which doesn't sound bad for an average commuter bike.
Mahindra Pantero 110 Mileage
Mahindra Pantero 110 is blessed with an ARIA-certified fuel-economy of 79.4kmpl and the fuel tank capacity for this commuter is of 13.7 litres, which looks quite satisfactory seeing the roaring fuel prices. With such a wonderful mileage figure, Mahindra 2 Wheelers has tried to sooth the buyers who are currently worried about the fuel guzzler bikes.
Mahindra Pantero Braking And Handling
Mahindra engineers have given special attention to arming their bike with the top notch braking system for giving the riders full control and stability under necessary riding conditions. It has got a dual set of traditional drum brakes for both the front and the rear tyre. Both the front and rear tyres have got a complimentary 130mm Drum brakes kit each, which works effectively. But, for the riders who like riding at speeds higher than 60kmph, the brakes might come as a slight disappointment as they don't help much in bringing the commuter to an instant stop in case it is dashing away at too high a speed. And thus, it can be said that inclusion of front disc brakes could have been a better option for this commuter. But still one can't neglect the effectiveness that this braking system provides for daily commuters either.
When we talk about the handling perspective, the seat position and its dimensions matter a lot. Keeping in mind this major point, Pantero brings in the longest seat in its class, which measures about 774 mm in length. Hence, riders will find that the overall riding experience of Mahindra Pantero is quite comfortable and pleasing. Mahindra Pantero 110 has got agility of a panther as it is very nimble while cutting through the crowded Indian streets and makes it quite easy for the rider to leave long traffic jams far behind. Its 120kg body weight helps it in gaining a panther's manoeuvrability and sprint. Plus, the fabulous suspension system, composed of telescopic forks for the front and twin adjustable shocks coupled to tubular steel swingarm for the rear end, that has been employed for the Pantero helps its riders simply glide over even the bumpiest of roads.
Mahindra Pantero Safety Features
For making the Pantero an absolutely safe and secure ride for its riders, Mahindra 2 Wheelers has made no compromises in the safety department. First and foremost, the positioning of the rear view mirrors has been done perfectly for giving a clear view to the driver of the road behind him, with no worries about the riders' shoulders blocking the rear view. Then, the grab rail provided at the rear end has been so smartly designed that it not only provides additional support and safety to the pillion rider but blends so deftly with the rear profile that it also adds to the visual appeal of the bike. The 18-inch tyres too contribute profusely to rider safety by providing a strong road-grip and hence assisting with the braking.
Mahindra Pantero Pros
Panther like agility and manoeuvrability, reasonably good handling characteristics, and easy affordability.
Mahindra Pantero Cons
Absence of disc brakes and lack of the latest box section unit responsible for bringing about better stability in the bike.
Mahindra Pantero Review

The bike has some great features to try like the MCI-5 engine helps in gaining very high pick up, good level of riding & the comfort zone while riding and the anti theft feature is awesome.
