LISTEN 02:48

The Mahindra Kine has to compete in a scooterette segment in a country that never seems to run out of them. With its work definitely cut out for it, the Indian bike maker decided to give the Kine a distinctive look that’s highlighted by a sharp nose.

The stylish streamlined design ensures a comfortable riding posture while the youthful body graphics add some personality to the bike. In the terms of features, the Kine comes with a self-start option and ample storage space just like the other scooterettes in India. Under the seat, there’s ample storage in which you can store your helmet, documents, or other small things. On the handlebars, you will find the instrument panel which is comprised of a speedometer, high-beam indicator, and turn indicators signal.

Its stability and grip on the road are supported by the 1225mm wheelbase that offers balanced riding. The bike’s 71 cc engine only offers 4 horsepower, but it’s still reasonable enough to get you from point A to point B and do it while delivering 55 kmpl of mileage in the city. The engine is complemented by a dual-side drum brakes system and a pair of three spoke alloy wheels.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
