Mahindra Gusto 125 VX Review

13 Jun, 2016 04:26 PM

Overview

Mahindra recently unveiled the more powerful, more stylish version of its existing scooter, Gusto 125 in India. The refreshed scooter shares the same underpinnings, making little changes to the overall body structure. It offers a variety of new shades and first in-segment features, making it a great deal if priced successfully below the market leader like Activa 125 and Suzuki Access 125.

Design and Style

The new Gusto 125 shares the same curves and edges with the younger Gusto. The new part comes mostly to the front part of the scooter as it uses a different pattern of false air intakes than the older model. Six intakes and chrome stripe on the side panels clearly differentiates the newcomer. The Gusto comes with a conservative body style and uses matching color inserts on the new dual tone shades on the 125 cc variant.

Instrument Console

The console is simply beautiful, displaying every little bit of the required values through its analogue speedometer and odometer. The fuel gauge is again analogue, with whole of the console enclosed in a silver casing, dividing it into 3 different sections. The third section houses the LED indications for turn indicator and others.

Engine and Gearbox

The 125 cc engine on the new Gusto is much more refined than the older engine even after using the same air cooled and carburetor fed fuel system. The motor is good for 8.5 BHP @ 7,000 rpm and 10 NM @ 5,500 rpm. It is a great option for everyday riding and comes with CVT for more relaxed automatic gearshifts. It is expected to deliver a company claimed figure of 60 kmpl.

Brakes and Suspension

Gusto 125 uses the same 130 mm drum brakes for the front as well as the rear wheel. It could have been better if Mahindra used a disc brake instead of the front drum unit as it would have given a more upmarket look and feature to the scooter. It uses telescopic suspension at the front and hydraulic coil type at the rear.

Exclusive Features

Mahindra offers a lot of features which are exclusive to the Gusto only. It comes with a height adjustable seat, making it easy for the rider to adjust the seat height between 735-770 mm. It comes with a car like flip key and find me lamps for finding Gusto easily in large parking lots. It comes with quick storage under the instrument console and even provides tubeless tyres measuring 12 inch.

Shades and Variants

Mahindra Gusto 125 is available in 2 variants: DX and VX, making the scooter available in Orange Rush, Bolt White, Monarch Black and Regal Red shade.
