Modified Mahindra Raxor looks extraordinary in every angle

This modified Mahindra Raxor looks simply stunning and just too bold from every angle. Up front, it gets an orange grille, along with a redesigned bumper and conventional circular headlamps. One can also spot an LED light bar fitted on the roof. The front bumper also boasts an electic winch, which can effortlessly tow 1583.04 kgs of weight at once. The most unique looking part of this modified Raxor is its set of wheels, or the utter lack thereof. Instead of the conventional wheels, this UV features tank track that should help it easily move in the snow terrain. It may be noted that these tracks provide maximum traction to the vehicle and help it to conquer the loose and uneven terrains.

The Mahindra Raxor rivals the likes of the Polaris RZR 1000 and similar ATVs . The Unavailability of doors, windshield and a hard canopy roof makes the Raxor a bit different from the Thar. Dimensionally, the Raxor is 3759 mm long, 1574 mm wide and 1905 mm tall. It also has a wheelbase and ground clearance of 2438 mm and 228 mm, respectively. It draws power from a 2.5-litre, M2DiCR turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine that produces power and torque outputs of 62 hp and 195 Nm. The diesel mill comes mated to a 5-speed stick shift. The Mahindra Raxor has a top speed of 72 kmph and can cover a distance of 563 km on a full tank of fuel (45.4-litres). The Mahindra Roxor won't be launched in India anytime soon. The reason behind this is the lack of enough interest in ATVs in India.
