Two new Scooters by Mahindra launched in India - Rodeo & 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.
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.
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'.
