Two new Scooters by Mahindra launched in India - Rodeo & Duro

No prizes for guessing this, but the Nashik based auto major has launched two new gearless scooters - Rodeo and Duro

Like our capable correspondents reported earlier, Mahindra Two Wheelers has unveiled two new gearless scooters today - the Rodeo and the Duro.

'Mahindra Two Wheelers will design and market a range of scooters, value engineered motorcycles and high-end motorcycles for the Indian and global markets, helping it establish a robust, end-to-end two-wheeler business in every segment of the industry.' Read the Press Release issued by Mahindra. Probably we will be seeing the 'value engineered motorcycles' in the near future.

Coming back to the new scooters. Mahindra Rodeo – This is the macho one and is mainly aimed at the young urban male. The Rodeo comes packed with some good features and is powered by the 125cc, 8 bhp engine which does the duty in Flyte as well. Apart from the telescopic suspension and bigger 7AH battery, the scooter also has some interesting goodies like a colour changing digital console, trip meter, clock, tachometer, digital speedometer and odometer, and a USB port cum mobile charger to keep you connected even on the move. Thumbs up to Mahindra for this!

There's more. The horn rimmed headlights are practical and add to the vehicle’s stylish appearance. The mirror is adjustable and 'non-breakable' --- they move inward in case of an impact, resulting in almost no breakage. A unique ‘side stand buzzer’ reminds the rider that the side stand is still on. Just like the Flyte, it has the petrol tank inlet in front which allows the rider to refuel without having to alight from the scooter. The Rodeo boasts the largest illuminated storage space in its category, which allows you to even store food and perishable items as the petrol tank is not located inside.

The Rodeo is competitively priced at Rs. 41,299 (ex-showroom Pune). Available in seven shades – Fiery Black, Forest Green, Cappuccino Brown, Blazing Red, Golden Beige, Majestic Maroon and Deep Ocean Blue.

Now, lets talk about the Duro a.k.a. A ‘Made for Everyone’ Scooter. As the name suggests this looks like the sturdier of the two and has the same 125cc engine which is the biggest you can get at this price.

This nifty two wheeler sports a powerful battery, wide brakes, a large fuel tank, the widest wheelbase and a generous storage space to carry your world with you.

At Rs. 38,299 (ex-showroom Pune) the Mahindra Duro is a good value for money. The scooter is available in range of colours – Fiery Black, Pearl White, Cappuccino Brown, Mystique Grey, Majestic Maroon and Golden Beige.

Mr. Anand Mahindra, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, Mahindra Group said, “This launch is a validation of the commitment we made last year to establish a robust, end-to-end global two wheeler business with a presence across segments. With their international appeal and powerful performance, the Rodeo and the Duro are world class scooters and will extend the Mahindra DNA of ‘tough & rugged’ style to a whole new consumer segment.”

This is great, but we're keeping our eyes open for the 'value engineered motorcycles and high-end motorcycles'.
