I am assuming it's the XT1053, so: unlock the bootloader on Moto's site, flash TWRP, and reboot. That should prompt you to install SU and you will be rooted. You can check the stickies in the general thread for more detail.

Quick doubt:

Unlock
Flash TWRP via app or ADB
Flash SuperSU via TWRP
Thats it?!

Are these the right steps?!

yes, except that.. using the bootloader unlock code and flashing TWRP or other recovery is done via Mfastboot, not ADB.

I've only used Rashr to flash recovery from the phone (no PC involved), but it needed me to be rooted first. So initial TWRP flash and root was done via mFastboot.

Exactly what KidJoe said. Check his guide linked in his signature, as it is extremely comprehensive. Read through it well. Specifically look at items #4 and #7 since they apply to what you are wanting to do.
