The Mahindra Mojo is now available in two variants, and the UT300 is the base version of the two. It ditches a few premium bits for more conventional ones in the endeavour to achieve a lower price. It gets conventional front forks instead of upside down ones, and the left silencer has been dropped for a single silencer design. The only tyres available are MRF Zappers as well. The engine remains a liquid-cooled one but ditches the fuel injection in favour of carburettion. The UT300 is an attempt by Mahindra to make the Mojo appeal to a wider audience, one that also looks at other touring-capable machines like the Royal Enfield Thunderbird and Thunderbird X.
The 2017 Glamour is the first motorcycle that Hero MotoCorp has developed from scratch after the split with Honda. The Glamour can be had with either carburettion or FI, but the latter is a commuter that caters to those who demand technology as well from their motorcycle. This is a stylish looking motorcycle with its clean yet sharp looking lines and attractive color schemes. Standard features include a front disc brake, lovely split-spoke alloy wheels, body-colored rear-view mirrors and a semi digital instrument cluster with real time fuel consumption indicator. The bike is powered by a single cylinder, air cooled 4-stroke engine which gets fuel injection for improved efficiency and drivability. Mated to a 4-speed gearbox, this engine produces 9.1bhp and 10.35Nm of torque.
The 2017 iteration of the Glamour is the first motorcycle to be developed from scratch by Hero MotoCorp after the Honda split. It retains all the features and specs from its previous avatar. It gets the same muscular styling with funky decals. The instrument cluster on the motorcycle too is still part digital and part analogue. It also continues to get 'i3s' technology, which is Hero's patented start/stop tech to maximise fuel economy. The Hero Glamour SV is powered by a 125cc single cylinder petrol engine producing 11.5bhp of power and 11Nm of torque. This mill comes mated to a four-speed gearbox. While the FI (electronic fuel-injection) equipped Glamour is a different model, the Glamour i3s has only carburettion. Its company-claimed fuel efficiency is rated at 60kmpl. Hero offers the Glamour i3s in four colour combinations - black with blue, black with red, red and black with grey. It can also be had as a drum brake variant or as a disc brake model. The motorcycle competes against the Bajaj V15, Honda CB Shine, TVS Phoenix and the Yamaha Saluto.
