Mahindra Unveils New Rodeo RZ in India [125cc Scooters 2012]
Some comparison charts shared by Mahindra claimed the following points:
Rodeo RZ returned a fuel efficiency figure of 53kmpl as tested on chassis Dynamometer in Indian Driving Cycle. This is 3kmpl more than the latest 125cc scooter Suzuki Swish.
Rodeo also has the quickest from naught timings till 60kmph. Rodeo RZ does the 0-60 dash in 9.35 seconds, Swish can do it in 9.4 seconds where the Activa takes 11.6 seconds.
Earlier Rodeo also had the problem of shorter ground clearance which made the stand touch the ground on smaller speed breakers. However, it seems Mahindra has ironed that issue out. The Rodeo RZ without rider is 154mm high where Swish and Activa are 140mm and 150mm respectively. At a rider weight of 75kg astride the scooter Rodeo RZ still is 142mm high as compared to 130kg for Swish and Activa. Even at a combined weight of 150kgs on the scooter, Rodeo RZ still leads the pack in ground clearance at 124mm compared to Swish and Activa’s 115mm.
Another chart shared by Mahindra had a featurewise comparison of the scooter. It is the only scooter in the segment which comes with a digital speedometer, front fuelling (Wego has rear fuelling), an illuminated underseat storage of 22 liters (compared with 20kg for Wego and Swish and 18 liters for Dio and Activa), mobile charger (In Wego it is optional) and a 4-in-1 anti theft key.
*Above mentioned are Mahindra claimed figures.
Mahindra is seriously considering customer feedback and working on to improve its products. Duro DZ is a classic example of that. The two biggest gripes which we have received from actual owners are the inconsistent and lowly mileage of Rodeo along with the lower ground clearance issue. As we have described above, Mahindra seems to have taken all the feedback in ironing out these issues and making the scoot more road and user friendly.
