Cleveland CycleWerks on Thursday unveiled four India-ready models-Ace Deluxe, Ace Scrambler, Ace Cafe and Gen II Misfit–at the Auto Expo in Greater Noida.
All Ace models which target young riders pack an air-cooled, 4-stroke, 229cc single cylinder engine which delivers a maximum power of 15.4 hp and a peak torque of 16 Nm.
Two of the Ace models, Deluxe and Cafe, feature aluminium wheels, inverted front forks and twin hydraulic shock absorber at the rear.
Design wise, the Gen II Misfit is not much different from the Gen I of the bike. Powered by a 229cc air-cooled single-cylinder motor, the bike generates a peak power of 15.4 hp and 16 Nm torque.
All four bikes are in the range of Rs 2 to 2.5 lakh.
Though China is currently the biggest market for the American company, it is looking to expand its feet into India as well given that the country is the single largest market for two-wheelers.
Praveen Desai, CEO of Laish Madison Motor Werks, Cleveland’s Indian partner, said, “As the time goes, we will bring more and more products to India.” The company aims to have a dealership in 30 cities across India by the end of the year.
Desai added that their target is to sell 5,000 bikes in the initial phase. Cleveland plans to ramp up its production capacity (of Pune facility) to 35,000 bikes in coming few years.
Cleveland motorcycles are currently sold in 23 countries spread in three continents.moneycontrol
