2019 Mahindra Mojo 300 ABS: Same Price, Other Options
From a Jawa to the Himalayan and more!
Contrary to some online reports, the Mahindra Mojo is still alive and kicking. The company has introduced the all-new 2019 Mojo 300 ABS recently. We’ve exclusively come to know the pricing and specifications of the tourer, and boy are there quite a bit of changes! More on that here - 2019 Mahindra Mojo 300 ABS Price Revealed. That said if its Rs 1.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Bengaluru) price tag, is something you’re not willing to pay, here are some other alternatives in the same bracket.
Jawa Dual-channel ABS - (Rs 1.72 lakh)
Looking for something old-school and retro? How about the Jawa? More specifically, its dual-channel ABS variant. It packs the same genes as the Mojo but comes in a more good-looking package while being Rs 16,000 cheaper! The only catch here is that you might have to wait almost a year to get your hands on one of these. We would’ve also recommended the Royal Enfield Classic 350 but considering the motorcycle is up for some major updates next year, we’ve decided to hold that thought for now.

Royal Enfield Himalayan (Rs 1.79 lakh)
Want something as capable off the road as it is on it? Royal Enfield’s Himalayan is exactly that. And the best part is, it is Rs 9,000 cheaper than the Mojo! For this price, the Himalayan offers a decent set of hardware, a torquey motor and off-road-ready components such as a tall windscreen, long-travel suspension, 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels, dual-purpose tyres and an upswept exhaust. However, looking at its 17-litre fuel tank, you will miss the Mojo’s massive 21-litre tank while touring.
Bajaj Dominar 400 (Rs 1.74 lakh)
The 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 can easily ticks all your boxes without burning a hole into your pocket. We’re talking about a powerful engine, a whole host of features and premium underpinnings. At least in terms of specs, the Dominar beats the Mojo by a comfortable margin. But it does pack an embarrassingly small 13-litre fuel tank. This is where the Mahindra offering might have the upper hand. At least in terms of touring, we do feel that the upright ergonomics of the Mojo might be more comfortable. Not to mention, you will also end up making fewer fuel stops, thanks to its massive fuel tank.
