The Mahindra Gusto was temporarily discontinued as the lack of a Combined Braking System meant it didn't comply with the norms that came into effect on April 1, 2019. However, that has changed as Mahindra has just launched the CBS equipped Gusto 110 and Gusto 125 in India. The prices for both scooters have gone up by a little over Rs 2,000, to account for the addition of the safety feature. The new Mahindra Gusto 110 DX CBS will now cost Rs 50,996 while the top-spec Gusto 110 VX CBS is priced at Rs 55,660. The new Mahindra Gusto 125 CBS will set you back by Rs 58,137. All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi.
The Government of India had introduced a new law last year that required all new two-wheelers (of up to 125cc) to be sold with Combined Braking System (CBS) from April 2019 onwards.
The Gusto 110 is powered by a 109cc, air-cooled engine that develops 8hp at 7,000rpm and 9Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. The Gusto 125, on the other hand, is powered by a 124.6cc, air-cooled engine that develops 8.5hp at 7,000rpm and 10Nm of torque at 5,500rpm.
The Mahindra Gusto boasts of some unique features such as height adjustable seat, follow-me-home headlamp, and a flip key fob with an LED torch and buttons to activate the turn indicators, which would make it easier to locate the scooter in a crowded parking lot.
While the Mahindra Gusto 110 and Gusto 125 have been around for a while, they will need a substantial update if they want to compete against the segment bests.
