Mahindra has been in the two-wheeler business for sometime now, and as far as scooters go, it's been selling the Rodeo and Duro. Both these scooters weren't all-new products - these were products that Mahindra inherited from the Kinetic-SYM legacy. Now, with the bike maker having its very own research and development department up and running, it's ready to introduce a product of its own. So, ladies and gentlemen, here's Mahindra Two Wheelers' first developed in-house product, the Gusto.

As you can see, the Gusto's design isn't path-breaking in any way. What you do notice first up are those 12-inch wheels front and back. The tail-light cluster design is also interesting. Overall, the Gusto is pleasing on the eye, but the styling isn't quite droolworthy.

The seat is broad and well-cushioned, you sit upright, and thanks to the long wheelbase, there is enough legroom even for a tall rider. What Mahindra should be given credit for is the innovative height-adjustable seat. Yes, the seat can be raised or dropped. This will be the Gusto's USP as a family scooter.

Talking about the mechanical bits, the Gusto gets an all-new, all-aluminium 110cc motor. We did like the 125cc mill that powered the Duro and Rodeo, but, according to Mahindra, the Gusto's motor returns 10-15 per cent better mileage than the 125. The claimed figure is 63kpl. In real-world use, we reckon the Gusto would do around 45kpl.

The Gusto provides ease of use, which is a must in this segment. The engine is refined, and vibrations are kept to a minimum. The acceleration from the motor is smooth and progressive, and even at speeds of 70-80kph (surely not the speeds you'd be doing while you go grocery-shopping), the scooter feels planted.

The telescopic front forks and the 12-inch wheels do a good job of tackling potholes. They also provide a good ride. We didn't have much to complain about the overall performance of the scooter. If there was something we didn't like, it was the brakes, which feel just about okay. We would have liked a disc up front for better stopping power. Mahindra says future models will come with disc brakes as optional fitment.

To sum it up, the Gusto is a genuine attempt by Mahindra to break into the scooter segment. It has got all the bells and whistles that you'd expect from a Mahindra. It's got LED parking lights, as well as a remote-operated key that's got a few party tricks like the Centuro's key. The seat height adjustment is another interesting feature that will trickle down to other Mahindra scooters in the future.
