The Centuro is the most technologically advanced motorcycle, yet feature loaded value-for-money motorcycle from Mahindra. Considered to be the premium 110cc commuter motorcycle, the Centuro shares the engine and platform with the Pantero.
Mahindra has developed this motorcycle from scratch and has concentrated a lot on the design and styling aspects. One of the major attributes that makes this motorcycle look different from rest of the bikes in this segment is the golden twin bar that is placed below the tank. This has nothing to do with the aerodynamics but merely a cosmetic feature to add a little bling. A similar cosmetic rib was first seen on the Mahindra’s 300cc motorcycle, the Mojo.
The Centuro is loaded with features like the flip-key with 96-bit secure access (India’s first for a motorcycle), engine immobilizer, anti-theft alarm, DTE (distance to empty), Find me lamps and LED parking lights. The performance of the Centuro with 106.7cc MCI-5 single-cylinder engine is on par with the segment standards – it produces 8.5PS and 8.5Nm of torque and the power is delivered via four-speed all-up shift pattern gearbox. The bike has a dry weight of 111kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 12.7 litres. The Centuro gets drum brakes at both – front and rear but a new version with front disc brake is available. The Centuro is currently available in three colours- red, black and silver with bold graphics.
