Record: Fastest East To West Ride On A Mahindra

Written By:

Mahindra launched its flagship motorcycle the Mojo, a couple of years back. Now, the bike has once again set new benchmarks by entering the Indian Book of Records by crossing East to West India in the fastest time.

The journey was done by two Mojo owners and long-time riding partners, Sudeep NS and Yogesh Chavan. The tour was flagged off from Tezu in Arunachal Pradesh, and ended at Koteshwar in Gujarat. Both the riders covered a total distance of 3,706km in just 85 hours. Although, there was a previous record set by covering a similar distance in 107 hours.

Naveen Malhotra, Sr. General Manager - Sales, Marketing & Product Planning, Mahindra Two Wheelers Ltd said, "The Mojo has proved its mettle yet again. Sudeep and Yogesh's feat is an unprecedented achievement. The Mojo with its tour inclined DNA and the state-of-the-art engine makes it an ideal bike to overcome long distances."

Powering the Mojo is a 295cc liquid cooled, 4-stroke single-cylinder engine. The Mojo features a Double Over Head Camshaft (DOHC), low friction piston and rings, Electronic Fuel Ignition (EFI), iridium spark plug, resonator fitted intake system, and twin exhausts. The bike also uses a twin-tube frame with high torsional rigidity, inverted front forks with rigid triple clamp mounting and high-pressure gas charged offset rear mono-shocks with separator floating piston.

The bike has a 21-litre fuel tank, which is the largest in its class, to ensure it can cover longer distances effortlessly. The Mojo is a proper touring machine with its stability, comfort, and safety. So Let's hope that this touring machine can set a number of records in the near future. Till then, stay tuned.
