It also has an anti theft alarm with engine immobilizer and central locking which are completely new for all motorcycles made for this subcontinent. And this really an unbeatable gorgeous feature which put the other bike manufacturer in serious tension which featured very intelligently with comfortable price band. And of course the thief and snatchers are also in serious tension we think.
Features & Specialty:
You know a bike’s mileage heavily influences the owner attitude and enhances the satisfaction level. So Mahindra promised an impressive fuel efficiency of 85.4 kilometer per liter (certified by ARAI) on Centuro. According to its users, it is quite successful in keeping their promise. The new intake design and ignition system is the reason behind such high fuel economy.
This technology enriched by Mahindra’s innovatively developed intelligent MCi-5 (Micro Chip ignited-5 curve) engine which smartly balances between power and fuel economy. The engine of Mahindra Centuro is 106.7cc, single cylinder, 4-stroke and air cooled. Its maximum power is 8.5PS @ 7500RPM; maximum torque is 8.5NM @ 5500RPM. The four speed manual transmission offers smooth gear shifting which enhances the riding fun.
The bike has telescopic fork on front & hydraulic, coiled spring, 5-step adjustable rear suspension to provide greater riding comfort on our roads. It also makes easy to handle the bike even at high speed. Mahindra Centuro claims the top speed of 90kmph which can zip 60kmph from the zero in 8.9 seconds.
Uncommon on Consol:
Mahindra offers an advanced, white lit digital dashboard on Mahindra Centuro which is really uncommon feature in this segment. The console has three parts. The left part featured for DTE indicator and the fuel gauge. The middle part is for conventional type rev counter and digital speed counter. The right part hosted with indicator for service due, trip meter, odometer and clock. It is really an unusual comprehensive feature for an entry level motorcycle because most of the bikes offer little more than a speedo, fuel gauge and lights.
Find Me & Guide Me:
The Centuro also has some innovative features like “Find Me” and “Guide Me”. The “Find Me” feature helps the rider to find out his bike on dark or crowded parking lot by flashing lights with alarm and “Guide Me” helps to see the path in the dark by illuminating the head lamp. Both feature works even when the bike ignition is switched off and rider is little far away from the bike. The features are operated by the remote ignition key. And no doubt these are really unique features.
There is also a LED torch in the key to get the ignition slot in a dark area. The headlamp of Centuro fitted with bright halogen DC light (12V-35W/35W) which ensures better visibility during night or in bad weather.
More over the smart LED tail lamp, comfortable palm grips, large mirrors, and well finished switches including a pass light enhanced the bike’s feature. The fuel tank of Centuro looks a bit small behind the large angular headlights but the ribs that wrapped around the tank gives the bike a rough and tough manly look. And its fuel capacity is 12.7 litres.
