The Mahindra Pantero and Mahindra Centuro are both 106.7cc commuter bikes, housing single headlamp units with LED pilot lamps encased within individual bikini fairings. The Mahindra Pantero looks identical to the Mahindra Stallio, using saffron backlit digital instruments with an analogue tachometer tucked beneath its tinted visor.

The Mahindra Centuro is positioned slightly higher in the market, a relatively feature-rich bike built around the same platform. The Mahindra Centuro comes equipped with a handsome digital instrument console, this using white backlighting while providing a service due reminder, an economy and power riding mode indicator, a trip counter, odometer and clock. Furthermore, the Centuro will sell equipped with a novel theft deterrent system. The Mahindra Centuro uses a smart looking, LED torch equipped and flip-to-open key which houses a 128 bit secure access chip that triggers an alarm whenever a duplicate key intrudes, further cancelling ignition to immobilise the bike. Another button on this smart key makes the Centuro lights wink, making it easy to locate the bike in a crowded parking lot.
The relatively basic Mahindra Pantero comes with decent quality palm grips, and switchgear that includes a pass-light flasher, plus handlebar mounted choke lever. Additionally the Mahindra Pantero shows off a lockable tool-bay. Both bikes come equipped with handsome, 5-spoke and 18 inch alloy wheels, while their engine bays and other lower parts sport an all-black finish, including the exhaust, this fitted with a chromed heat guard. Both bikes house the Stallio’s familiar, but extensively reworked and improved, four-stroke, 106.7cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, now generating a healthier 8.4bhp at 7500rpm, with peak torque close to earlier, at 0.87kgm at 5500rpm. The new powerplant retains common bore and stroke dimensions with the Stallio, now rechristened as the MCI-5 engine, short for Micro Chip Ignited, 5-curves. Mahindra 2-wheeler R&D chief, PS Ashok informs us minor tweaks to engine state-of-tune separate both motorcycles. The Pantero and Centuro bring to the table now industry standard friction killing roller bearings for their rocker arms, a redesigned piston assembly, improved induction plus a better lubrication system. Both bikes come with identical, 4-speed, 4-up shifting gearboxes. Throttle response is better than on the Stallio at low engine speed, a key factor on commuter bikes like these, but our ride was brief, so we must reserve verdict till after strapping on our test equipment. What’s immediately apparent however, is the Pantero gearbox being a solid improvement over the Stallio, a giant step forward. Properly spaced gear ratios and a lighter clutch feel at the control lever are also available, all of which were missing from the first motorcycle.
Mahindra has undoubtedly improved upon the earlier engine and claim the new Mahindra Pantero is capable of 0-60kph in 8.8 seconds, although we look forward to our independent testing to clarify this. The Mahindra Pantero and Centuro deploy twin downtube steel frames, a marginal 1.87kg lighter than the Stallio, with telescopic fork front suspension and a set of adjustable rear shocks. It’s disappointing to note the rear suspension is still bolted to an obsolete, tubular steel swingarm, that few Indian motorcycles continue to deploy today.
