Mahindra’s MGP3O was first launched in 2013. Back then, it was built in conjunction with a technical partner. A couple of years in the ultra-competitive Moto GP World Racing Championship has seen a transferral of responsibility with Mahindra Racing now moving to completely take over the technical developments. This shift has been facilitated by the construction of Mahindra Racing’s own Research and Development centre in Besozzo, near Milan in Northern Italy. The all-new 2016 racing machine is therefore significant since it is the first product to come from this new R&D centre, subsequently making it a true Mahindra product than ever before.
The new MGP3O is a significantly evolved machine from the previous season’s bike and changes have focused on improved power delivery and acceleration. A new engine, gearbox and aerodynamic package are matched by several refinements to the chassis and electrical components. All these changes combine to offer greater performance in tune with a new double exhaust system developed by Arrow Systems.
