Mahindra Two Wheelers has announced that it has received over 30,000 bookings for its 110cc, 8.5bhp Centuro commuter motorcycle within seven weeks of the bike’s launch on July 1. The company is ramping up production capacity at its Pithampur plant to meet the growing demand.
“The fantastic response we have received for the Centuro, especially in today’s challenging market environment, is testimony to its strong value proposition and appeal amongst consumers,” said Anoop Mathur, president – Two Wheeler Sector and Member of the Group Executive Board, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd.
Designed in-house at the company’s state-of-the-art R&D Centre in Pune, the Centuro, which is mechanically near-identical to the Pantero launched earlier this year, sports a host of patented category innovations and features and has an ARAI-certified mileage of 85.4 kilometres per litre.
The fully loaded Mahindra Centuro is available across India at an introductory price of Rs 45,000 (ex-showroom New Delhi).
Mahindra Two Wheelers sold 14,612 units in July 2013 and in the first four months of this fiscal (April-July 2013) has sold a total of 34,675 units.
