    Default Mahindra Centuro caught testing

    Pictures of the new Mahindra Centuro being tested on the streets have been taken by xBhp Member Eshan-P180.

    The motorcycle had first been unveiled at the launch of the Pantero, which was covered by xBhp and is due to be launched soon as announced then. The bike when unveiled had been showcased to host a lot of new features

    The Centuro has a lot of first-in-its-class features. The Centuro is being powered by the same 110 cc MCI-5 (micro chip ignited 5-curve) engine that is fitted on the Pantero. As per them, this entirely new engine has been developed by Mahindra 2-Wheelers at their new R&D house in Pune in just 18 months. Though we did not ride the Centuro, we were told that what differentiates the Centuro riding experience from the Pantero, is the way the engine has been tuned. The Centuro seems to have been tuned for a more peppy riding experience, without compromising much on the fuel economy. The Centuro delivers 8.5 BHP @ 7500 RPM and 8.5 Nm @ 5500 rpm. Feature wise, the Centuro comes fitted with a Central-Locking Anti-Theft system with engine immobiliser and a remote 128 bit encrypted Flip Key A feature that we have not seen in bikes till now. It also has Find Me Lamps feature that will makes the turn indicators blink simultaneously at the touch of a button on the remote, making it easier to find the bike in a crowded parking lot. There is also a fully-digital console, with an inbuilt service indicator and Distance To Empty Fuel calculator, that should come handy in day-to-day riding. There are also bright LED tail and pilot lamps. Mahindra calls these pilot lamps Guide Lamps as they remain on for 7 seconds during the night time even after you take out the key and turn off the engine, which would keep your way illuminated to make easier for you to find your way in the darkness. Styling wise, the Centuro wore a more solid and robust look than the Pantero. It has been fitted with a pair of golden bars under the tank, which would remind you of the Mojo. It also claims to have the category-best ground-clearance of 173 mm with a seat height of 800 mm and maintenance free battery.
    We can now expect the Mahindra Centuro to go on sale soon, as the bike looks ready for release in similar trim as originally unveiled.

    Great catch Ehsan! So we now have a 'confirmed' challenger for the Discover100T with a plethora of gizmoid goodies. The goodies will definitely make it a 'premium' commuter though the tail lamps seem a direct lift-off from the old Discover125 and the overall body looks much like a Star City.

    Biking is not about how many Km/h you put on your Speedo. It's about how many miles you put on your Odo. Ride Safe, Ride Long!

    Pulsar inspired indicators!!!!
    I guess TVS Sport looks better than this. I see no reason, why would somebody buy it, unless Mahindra claims a mileage of 110 kmpl .
