Mahindra launches renovated scooter Gusto 125 in Karnataka

Bengaluru: Mahindra Two Wheelers on Thursday launched indigenously developed and refreshed scooter Gusto 125 in the Karnataka market, in a bid to expanding its presence in the segment.

“Since its launch last year, Gusto has grown consistently.. it is packed with a powerful 125 cc M-TEC engine with load sensing MCDi technology and is the best value for money with matchless features,” said Mahindra Two Wheelers chief operating officer Vinod Sahay unveiling the scooter.

It is available in two variants Gusto 125 Dx and Vx, priced at Rs.50,680 and Rs.53,680 (both ex-showroom Bengaluru) respectively.

Key features of the renovated model include height adjustable seat, remote flip key, find-me lamp, guide lamp, an easy front kick and a quick storage compartment among others.

Sahay said features like find-me lamp and guide lamp have been incorporated in the scooter drawing inspiration from Mahindra’s sports utility vehicles (SUV) vehicles XUV 500 and Scorpio.

“Find-me lamp helps in easily identifying Gusto among hundreds of parked vehicles by glowing a lamp while guide lamp will illuminate for a little while even after turning off the vehicle lights so that the rider can go back safely after parking the vehicle,” he said.

Currently being launched in phases in South India, Sahay said the vehicle will be launched globally across Asia and Central America as well.
