Mahindra Centuro : Review

Mahindra is well known for producing both the 4-wheeler & 2-wheeler in the Indian auto market. Being a successor in the 4-wheeler segment, where every model has its own design language, unique features & powerful execution. But, coming to the 2-wheeler segment the whole scenario is different as compare to the 4-wheeler segment.

The Mahindra is trying hard to pull the customers towards the 2-wheeler, but there is no any that much response as the 4-wheelers. So in order to be in the 2-wheeler competition, the auto maker is employing Italian technology for better output.

The first Italian technological bike from Mahindra is the ‘Stallio’ which was a flop model at that time. To brag the customers, Mahindra revamped & renamed the Stallio and debuted in to the market as Mahindra Pantero. With all the add on features & revamped elements, Pantero claimed some decent sales figures.

The only drawback with the Pantero is the design which looks aged & outdated, so to pleasure the 2-wheeler enthusiasts the bikemaker made some tweaks in the design and launched as the Mahindra Centuro 110.
