Does the new Mojo pack enough mojo to rival the segment heavyweights on paper? We find out

Mahindra Two-wheelers is set to launch the all-new 2019 Mojo 300 ABS soon. However, ahead of that, we’ve come to know the pricing and specs of the motorcycle, giving us an idea of what we’re in for. This begs the obvious question: does it now pack enough punch to rival segment heavyweights such as the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 and the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 on paper? We find out.

The Bajaj Dominar 400 here packs a bigger displacement engine and thus makes more power than the other two. Despite packing the smallest motor, the Mojo 300 churns out more power than Royal Enfield’s offering. However, the Thunderbird 350 makes the majority of its torque at as low as 4800rpm, giving it an advantage in the city. Both the Mojo and Dominar pack the advantage of fuel injection, helping them comply with the upcoming BS6 norms. However, Royal Enfield is working on the new-gen Thunderbird extensively, so expect to see an all-new engine, features and some significant cosmetic changes.

Mahindra has decided to base the 2019 Mojo 300 on the outgoing base Mojo UT 300. So while the Dominar gains USD forks for 2019, the Mojo loses them. In terms of braking, both the Mojo and the Dominar are almost evenly matched. However, the Mojo’s petal disc should dissipate heat faster. We feel both of them should be able to offer better braking performance than the Thunderbird, which comes with smaller discs, more weight and slimmer wheels.

The previous Mojo’s highest selling point was its relaxed ergonomics and massive 21-litre fuel tank, a boon for touring. Thankfully, Mahindra hasn’t played around with any of that on the 2019 model. Even the Thunderbird serves as an ideal touring machine, with similar advantages as the Mojo. However, we feel the Mahindra offering will be able to maintain better highway speeds owing to its lighter weight and more powerful engine. Though it is touted as a “power cruiser,” the Dominar 400 gets sportier ergonomics and a disappointingly low 13-litre fuel tank. 

Pricing and Verdict - 

 

Mahindra Mojo 300 ABS

Bajaj Dominar 400

Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350

Ex-showroom Delhi

Rs 1.88 lakh

Rs 1.74 lakh

Rs 1.56 lakh

At Rs 1.88 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the 2019 Mahindra Mojo is about Rs 4,300 more expensive than the XT 300, despite discarding some top-spec underpinnings. It is also a whopping Rs 34,300 more than the UT 300 on which most of it is based on. At this price point, it just seems a difficult pill to swallow, especially when you have a more value for money offering like the Dominar on offer for a whole Rs 14,000 less (Rs 1.74 lakh, ex-Delhi). 

But if you’re into retro motorcycles with a more relaxed riding style, the Thunderbird might just be up your alley.
