First ride: Mahindra RZ

The Rodeo is considered Mahindra’s scooter amongst its three all of which use the same engine. Now is rolling out an upgrade to the Rodeo and it the Rodeo RZ. The name, then, is with the DZ they added to the when it was face lifted a few ago.

Mahindra’s foray two-wheelers has been rocky as far as go, but their scooters have reasonably well. And the new Rodeo only help. It features upgrades to the engine’s ignition — a two-map digital system and a new carburettor apart equally small chassis — a higher riding (ground clearance as well as height rise by roughly two

Plus there’s minor tweaks and new colours. We expect the to continue but Mahindra is to announce the in a week or so as it sets out to complete a national roll out within a few starting with the southern
