Mahindra entered commuter motorcycle segment with Stallio but due to various reasons could not sell in good numbers and Mahindra had to forcefully withdraw the bike from the market. News is that Mahindra will relaunch the Stallio commuter bike with a new name Panthero. Well Mahindra has stuck to naming its products with the letter ending with ‘O’.
The Pantero will look similar to the Stallio, but we guess Mahindra have worked on all aspects of the bike to make it sure Pantero is not a half baked product. The original Stallio was powered by a 4 stroke 106.7 cc single cylinder air cooled engine with power output of 7.3 Bhp at 7500 rpm and torque of 0.8 Kgm at 5500 rpm. The engine was mated to a 4 speed gearbox. The Pantero is expected to be launch in January next year.
The Pantero was spied by Autocarindia readers while testing near Pune. Here are the spy pictures.
