Mahindra Two-Wheelers Ltd. have finally launched the Gusto 125 at Rs. 50,920 (ex-showroom, Chennai) for (the) DX variant while the top end trim VX is priced at Rs. 54,920 (ex-showroom, Chennai). The new Gusto features a dual-tone body paint with chrome (inserts) on the side panels in the top variant. Mahindra has also confirmed that they will introduce the disc brake variant soon. With the launch of the Gusto 125, the Indian automaker is eyeing the market share of the Activa 125, the Suzuki Access 125 and the Swish 125.
The Gusto 125 is very much similar to its younger sibling and the major difference is felt in the engine capacity. The latest addition to the Mahindra two-wheeler family gets its power from a 125cc powertrain, which is a bored out version of 110cc M-tech engine of the existing model. Its smooth engine produces 8.6bhp and 10Nm torque, similar to the Honda Activa 125. The company hasn’t said anything about the mileage, but we believe it will be around 60kmpl. Mahindra has also worked on its chassis and as a result the new Gusto is slightly lighter. The Pune-based automaker claims that the scooter offers best-in-class mileage and pickup. It retains rest of the features from its 110cc sibling including height-adjustable seat, follow me headlamps, a remote key fob with guide lamp, LED pilot lamps and much more.
Mahindra Two-Wheelers have been trying hard to increase its presence in the Indian two-wheeler market and the launch of the Gusto 125 might bring the good sales figures. We rode the Gusto 125 and you can read the complete road test review by clicking here.
