Proud to have been part of Mahindra's engine development department.
Best wishes to Mahindra!

@ Brit Fan: They showcased a motogp bike in the Delhi Auto expo last year. i suppose it would be similar. though i have no clue as to what livery they will have.

cheers!

It was in fact it was a cool looking Bike with Trellis Frame. I don't know which way they will go Trellis or Regular Frame. Engine Wise Brit Fan can give more Inputs. Hope they succeed, so we can see them moving to Higher classes in the Future. If so, they are capable of replicating them with good affordable street & sports bikes.

Proud to be the first Indian Manufacturer to get here, when most other Auto-Moto Manufacturers had been doing nothing in the Automotive field rather sponsoring their money in Cricket. It's funny some of the Major don't even have an R&D divison. Mahindra & Mahindra have lot of Cash, Good Auto division, have a good R&D base plus good Automotive Software & Hardware divisions to their operation. Relatively new to 2-Wheelers.

Hope people like Tata can follow up with F1-Jag / Le-Man, LR Defender in Dakar. I also wish M&M to take part in Future Dakar with 4 & 2 Wheelers. Hope they bring a similar KTM Red Bull 125 based series to India. For Indian Auto Sports, any

I read online that's its just going to be an old Honda that will run with the name of Mahindra.
There's no Mahindra developed bike in reality!

Wish them all the best!

The lowest class become more Asian, will be better for this competition if not only rider but also motor come from all part of the world. we wait motor from Brazil, Australia, if possible South Africa.
Also Thank to Spanish, Italian, Briton, Japanese and others that they have been developing motogp, moto 2 and 125 cc. Forza motogp.

Just one question really, whats the point? it's for one year, so your not realistically going to develop jack and only marginal use could be passed on to your production queue.
Are they panning one doing Moto3? i hope so as it'd be good to see as much variety as possible on the grids.

OK, here is a 'Factual' info update. Believe it or not, i am connected to this project

No the race bike will not have the trelis frame, the trelis framed bike was a 'Mock up' show bike for an internal presentation to Mahindra Management.

No, the engine is not a Honda, in fact it is an in house designed engine. Current dyno tests of the engine show it will surprise some established teams.

Yes, Mahindra Racing will be in moto3, this is the first year of a (currently) 3 year programme. The 125 project is the basis and establishment of the Moto3 team.

The Moto3 bike is scheduled to start track testing in September.

Mahindra management are 100% behind the sucess of this project
