2012 Mahindra Rodeo
So far, the Mahindra Rodeo is still one of the best scooters launched in India where it was released to compete with the likes of the Honda Activa and Honda Dio, the Suzuki Access, and the Bajaj Kristal.
The Mahindra Rodeo is loaded with one of the best power mills in the market, churning enough power and performance capabilities to produce a top speed of 80 kmh. A large part of that can be attributed to its powerful 125cc engine that’s capable of producing 8 horsepower and guarantees a rush every time you hit the throttle.
In an effort to balance its power with riding comfort, Mahindra designed the Rodeo ergonomically, highlighted by a wider and longer seat that ensures better feeling for both rider and passenger, and prevents fatigue or body pain along the way.
This scooter is also blessed with a self and kick start-option, which is always a good thing. Then there’s the clear headlight, the instant start-up, and clear horn, all of which are supported by a supercharged battery.
The Rodeo is far from the fastest and most powerful bike on the market, but it does provide the kind of ride balance that makes riding it worth your time.
