Mahindra Two-Wheelers have introduced their second motorcycle in India packed with interesting features and featuring an aggressive price-tag.

The 110-cc Centuro has been designed entirely in-house at the Mahindra Two Wheelers’ R&D Centre in Pune, in a bid to emerge as a serious player in the Indian two wheeler market.

Speaking on the launch, Anoop Mathur, President, Two-Wheeler Sector and Member of the Group Executive Board, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, ‘In the next two and a half years, Mahindra would churn out about ten new models of scooters and motorcycle in India.’ This would include a woman-centric scooter and performance-oriented motorcycle, which could be the much debated Mojo 300-cc, before the end of the current financial year.

The Centuro is powered by MCi-5 (Micro Chip Ignited – 5 curve) engine making 8.5 PS @ 7500 rpm and 8.5 Nm of peak torque @ 5500 rpm while delivering a claimed 85.4 km/l ARAI-certified mileage figure. Additional features include an anti-theft alarm with engine immobiliser and a unique, segment-first, encrypted remote flip key, ‘Find Me’ lamps and guide lamps for greater visibility. The Centuro also offers a digital instrument console with a Distance-to-Empty (DTE) indicator as well as service reminder and ‘Economy Mode’ indicator.

Mahindra was offering the Centuro with an exceptional 5 year warranty. The Centuro has been priced at Rs 45,000 (ex-showroom, New Delhi), but as a special introductory offer, the first 10,000 bookings will be at just Rs. 44,000 (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The company is leaving no stones unturned to get a bigger share of the burgeoning motorcycle segment of India.
