6 30’th Sep, Mahindra motorcycles launch. I’ll be there..!!

Mahindra will launch its new Motorcycle range on Sep 30'th.. I would probably be attending the launch

125 cc Cevalo, 300 cc Diablo..!! 125 cc Cevalo, 300 cc Diablo..!! 125 cc Cevalo, 300 cc Diablo..!!

Cevalo? Diablo? Whatever..!!

I will be in Mumbai on Sep 30, to cover the launch of the Motorcycles from Mahindra

That’s the current LSD (Lame Speculations and Disappointment) doing the rounds these days. Just a simple Google for them will land you on several Amateur sites and "Bakwaas" Blogs screaming with authority that Mahindra is launching these 2 motorcycles in India.

These also seem to be almost sure about the peak power, engine configuration, price range et al. Some are even audacious enough to put photographs of the yet to be launched bikes from Mahindra.

Posted below are the most widely circulated photos of the Diablo and the Cevalo.

For heaven’s sake the first photo is a model called the Megelli 125S (an European brand with a made in China/Taiwan engine) and the second photo (posted below), is a "concept" 125 cc model from the Taiwanese scooter maker SYM. The SYM Cevalo is not even a current production model from SYM. It was just displayed at the 2009 International Milan Motorcycle Show.

Now since SYM provided the technology to Kinetic for its Flyte/Rodeo scooters and since Mahindra bought Kinetic’s scooter business, somebody must have speculated that Mahindra and SYM could collaborate and therefore might have "blogged": "Would Mahindra bring the SYM Cevalo to India?"

Which might have been copied and pasted by someone smart as, "Shouldn’t Mahindra bring the SYM Cevalo to India?" And ultimately by someone smarter as, "Mahindra to launch the Cevalo in India..!!"

Hmmm.. Lost in Translation? Or Lost while "Copy, Pasting"?


I can understand the SYM Cevalo speculation, but it beats my imagination on how the Megelli 125S has become a Mahindra model. Another problem with out great desi bloggers is that most often they are too insecure to provide the original source of their "Copy, Paste" inspiration.


Cevalo? Diablo? Whatever..!! I will be in Mumbai on Sep 30'th, to cover the launch of the Motorcycles from Mahindra.



[P.S: The Diablo name was just a speculated name (posted by me a couple of days earlier) for the Mahindra motorcycle based on a winning team at a Business contest sponsored by Mahindra]
