Mahindra Rodeo RZ review

The Mahindra Rodeo RZ is the new variant of the earlier 125cc Rodeo. A new feature is the position of the fuel tank, which is now positioned in the front to enable easy filling up without the need to get off the seat.

The Mahindra Rodeo RZ has more colour options and a coloured hue to the instrument panel. In fact, the instrument panel has got 2 great warning aspects: for one, it shows up a warning red light if you go over 60kph – so no over-speeding! – and, secondly, it sets off an alarm if you try to start the two-wheeler when the side stand is still in position.  

The Rodeo RZ has better ground clearance than its previous avtar and the brakes respond instantly. Working on a 124.6cc 4-stroke engine, the scooter is good enough to drive on city roads. 

The storage space in the boot is really good – not only spacious enough for your helmet & a small shopping bag, but it also lighted up.

Charging point for mobile/iPod
Yet another great feature is the mobile charging point at a convenient position near the storage space at the front. So it is really easy to simply put your cell phone or iPod in that space and charge it up while riding the Rodeo RZ. Cool!

Incidentally  the Rodeo RZ is not easy to steal because the special anti-theft key which closes the key slot fully cannot be used in the keyhole of any other model. 

Overall, the Mahindra Rodeo RZ is a wonderful scooter to own as far as driving is concerned. However, the main problem as reported by riders is the low mileage (sometimes less than 30kpl as reported). What’s more, it is really expensive as compared to two-wheelers which operate on the same type of engine.

Price of  Mahindra Rodeo RZ: Rs.48,900/- (ex-showroom Delhi).
