The recent entry in the 110cc motorbike segment is with the launch of Centuro by Mahindra & Mahindra group. The two-wheeler portfolio of the company is going to be scaled up with the officials planning to roll out 10 new two-wheeler models over the next two years. The company may also be coming up with a few off-road bikes with this plan. Bearing a price tag of Rs. 45,000 in India, the Mahindra Centuro is yet another fully-loaded bike, that promised a mileage of 85.4 kmpl over a 106.7-cc, MCi-5 (Micro Chip Ignited-5 Curve) engine and comes with an advanced digital dashboard with distance-to-empty, service reminder indicators, anti-theft alarm with engine immobiliser and an encrypted remote flip key, which by the way is a first in Indian motorcycling that gives unique secure access to the motorcycle.

Along comes with this bike is a five-year warranty and a maintenance-free battery that runs a 5-step rear suspension for the riding comfort on the bumpy-little Indian roads. Unveiling the new bike, Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra said the company’s success in the two-wheeler territory had proved wrong sceptics who had advised him against venturing into the segment. "It just gave me a sense of deja vu because that’s the same advise the sceptics had when we moved into the (passenger) automotive segment and again when we built the Mahindra World City, first in Chennai and then in Jaipur," said Mr. Mahindra. "The Centuro is a prayaag, a confluence of customer feedback, out-of-the-box thinking and indigenous designing," he said.


Speaking of the features that the bike brings for you is also the Find-Me Lamps that help to easily locate the motorcycle even in a crowded parking lot while Guide Lamps continue to illuminate even as you walk away after parking the bike to light up the way for you. It is interesting here to not that the company has been working to enhance its research & development (R&D) capabilities. Mahindra has so far invested about Rs 100 crore on R&D of new products and plans to invest Rs 500 crore over the next few years. Here's a quick list of technical specifications of the Mahindra Centuro, take a look -

@Sarathkumar Chandrasekaran • 02 Jul, 2013 Yes the specification make me to drive crazy.For a price tag of 44,000 definitely Mahindra have a good lead over the other manufacturers.
If i can I will definitely check this out......
@Jeffrey Arulraj • 02 Jul, 2013 The price of the centuro actually made me think that it is a new input in the line of mopeds and never I thought it was actually a Mobike

Super cool features at such a base price will always attract any one to buy it

@Anil Jain • 03 Jul, 2013 My 2 cents:
110 CC with 45K.
Umm this bike would not be luring the high end consumers (that like 200+ cc and great looks).

With the average look and price only a commoner would be looking for this.
Now, the big question for a commoner (generally who do not prefer fancy features like find me over mileage) is mileage. M&M is saying that mileage for this bike would be somewhere 68-70 kmpl (correct me if I am wrong) on long run, is it enough to make it a hit with the average looks.

I have my own doubts. What do you think about that??

@Harshad Italiya • 03 Jul, 2013 This bike have all the latest happenings in electronics-automobile. And because of that there will be huge difference on average on which they are promoting this bike.

👍 Mahindra & Mahindra !
@Ankita Katdare • 07 Jul, 2013 Here is the latest commercial for the Mahindra Centuro -

It hasn't even hit on the national television yet. But, it has managed to attract more than 2 lakh views on YouTube. Yes, the power of social media.
@Harshad Italiya • 14 Jul, 2013 Well, Now I am planning to see some real review for this bike as I am going to purchase one and this one fits to my budget and features I am looking for.
@Harshad Italiya • 14 Jul, 2013 Any idea about Fuel Delivery System and Ignition System used in this Bike?

Is it Carburetor and Digital CDI?
