The Pantero provides a tubular steel, twin-downtube frame, with telescopic fork front suspension and adjustable, hydraulic rear shocks. Its riding position is upright, good for a commuter bike. Ride quality is decent, making this a light motorcycle to steer in the city, but iffy cornering manners could improve, being mainly due to Mahindra sticking with a tubular steel swing arm unit.
The Pantero suffers inadequate brakes, its front and rear drums failing to provide good feel, or stopping power.
MRF tyres are the norm, these allowing the Pantero good traction.
