Mahindra has launched its first ‘grounds-up’ family-oriented scooter, Gusto, for the northern and western regions of India. The scooter will be available in two variants – VX and DX. While the standard VX variant will be available at Rs. 43,000, the more feature-rich DX variant can be yours at Rs. 47,000. The launch of scooter in the remaining parts of India will happen in the upcoming weeks, before the festive season commences.

The Mahindra Gusto is powered by an all new fully-aluminum, four-stroke, air-cooled, 110cc engine, which is capable of maxing out 8 PS of power and 9 Nm of torque. The power produced will be sent to the rear wheel through a CVT transmission. Mahindra claims a fuel efficiency figure of 63 km/l for this full-sized, metal-bodied scooter. The scooter is equipped with a suspension setup of front telescopic forks and rear hydraulic coil springs.

The braking duties will be accomplished by 130 mm drum brakes at both ends. Mahindra has chosen to offer 12-inch steel wheels in the Gusto, which will be shod with tubeless tyres.

The Mahindra Gusto measures 1,825 mm long, 697 mm wide and 1,275 mm high, with the wheelbase measuring in at 1,275 mm. The VX will be the basic variant which will come with the mechanical essentials explained above and features such as silver-finished front grille, alloy grab rail for pillion rider, quick storage space below the instrument console, two baggage hooks and twin LED pilot lamps on headlamps.

The more premium DX variant, in addition to all the features mentioned, comes equipped with few extra bells and whistles such as a car-like flip key, anti-theft alarm system, follow me and guide lamps and seat height adjuster below the seat.
The Mahindra Gusto is an entirely new product. The platform, the engine, the brakes and bodywork are all brand new and virtually no components have been taken off another scooter’s production line.
The Mahindra Gusto will be manufactured in the company’s plant in Pithampur in Madhya Pradesh and will be exported to other ASEAN, Latin American and African markets as well. At the price point on which it is launched, the Gusto will be competing against the other family-oriented scooters such as Honda Activa, TVS Jupiter, Yamaha Alpha, Suzuki Let’s and Hero Maestro.
