Mahindra 2Wheelers unveils Pantero and Centuro


Mahindra 2 Wheelers has ushered in the New Year with the unveiling of two brand-new 110cc bikes, Pantero and Centuro. The timing couldn’t have been more significant – just a few days into the New Year – perhaps indicating its desire to turn over a new leaf in the motorcycle segment after failing to make an impact with its previous offerings.


Both the bikes have been designed in-house by Mahindra at their R&D centre in Pune. What’s more impressive is that the company managed to design the motorcycle from scratch in just 18-months! The bikes are powered by indigenously designed and developed MCi-5 (Micro Chip Ignited 5-Curve) engine and will be manufactured at Pithampur near Indore.

The Mahindra Pantero, positioned in the eco-commuter segment, will be the first motorcycle to hit the market and is aimed at young, first time motorcycle buyers. The bike is powered by a 110cc MCi-5 (Micro Chip Ignited 5-Curve) engine capable of producing 8.6PS of power at 7,500rpm. The bike boasts an impressive features-list rarely found in this segment like LED pilot and tail lamps, fully digital instrument cluster with a digital tachometer and choke on the handle bar. The digital instrument cluster features a speedometer, fuel gauge, trip meter and clock. The bike also has a high ground clearance of 165mm and a seat that measures 774mm in length, which Mahindra touts is the longest in-its-class.. What will probably interest buyers in this segment the most is the Pantero’s mileage, which is an ARAI-claimed 79.5kmpl.


The bike will be launched in four variants: T-1 (Self Start/Cast Alloy Wheels/ Digital Console), T-2 (Self Start/ Cast Alloy Wheels/ Analog Console), T-3 (Kick Start/ Cast Alloy Wheels/ Analog Console) and T-4 (Kick Start/ Spoke/ Analog Console). It will also be available in four colours: fiery red, sterling silver, blazing black and cool black. Mahindra have not announced the pricing yet but we expect it to be competitively priced in the region of Rs 44,000 and 49,000 - Update: (The base variant of the new Mahindra Pantero is priced at Rs 44,190/- ex-showroom Chennai)



The Centuro is Mahindra's latest offering in the motorcycle segment and it plans to market it as a premium 110cc bike. Powered by the MCi-5 engine producing 8.6PS of power, the bike is loaded with features like central locking, anti-theft system with an engine immobiliser, flip-key etc
