Mahindra Two-Wheelers, a part of the Mahindra Group, has today launched its second offering in the motorcycle space, in the form of the Centuro 110cc motorcycle. This was the highly-anticipated motorcycle in commuter bike segment, ever since it was unveiled in January-2013 because of its unique features, many of which are a first for the 110cc commuter segment.
The unique features in Centuro 110cc motorcycle include the central locking, anti-theft system with an engine immobiliser, remote 128-bit encrypted flip-key with LED lights, find me lights to locate the bike in crowded parking lots and guide lamps that continues to illuminate as one walks away from the bike after parking it. Apart from these, the bike also features LED tail and pilot lamps, white fully-lit digital instrument cluster with service and distance-to-empty fuel indicator.
The new 110cc Centuro is being viewed as highly affordable and fuel efficient, two major attributes in the Indian market which is intended to ensure its success. It is priced at Rs. 45,000 (Ex-showroom Delhi). As an introductory offer, the first 10,000 bookings for the Centuro 110 are eligible for an additional Rs. 1,000 off. The company has left no stones unturned to get a bigger share of the burgeoning motorcycle segment of India.
Under the skin, 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 kmpl ARAI-certified mileage figure, it becomes the most fuel efficient bike in its category. Compared to Pantero, the engine is tweaked to offer better performance, and is coupled to a 4-speed manual transmission. The Centuro accelerates from 0 to 60kmph in just 8.85 seconds. Still, there is no optional front disk brake option from Mahindra which is a big disappointment.
