Cleveland CycleWerks to setup shop in India
Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Cleveland CycleWerks began business not very long ago. Still new to the industry, the company builds small displacement retro style café racers and bobbers known for their distinctive retro-chic styling, ride quality and above all value for money. There have been issues with their fit and finish, but are ever improving.
This American manufacturer is going to set up shop in India this year to taste how it is to run in the biggest market for two-wheelers. It will go in the Indian bike market to challenge Royal Enfield’s small bike supremacy in its own backyard. They will bring three models out of their six to the Indian market, all ranging from 110cc to 230cc catering to the commuter segment (the biggest motorcycle segment of the country).
Cleveland CycleWerks was especially known for its retro looking motorcycles, but now the company has entered on a totally new realm with the addition of the FXx model.
The new FXxis looks like a geniune dirt bike, but the company says it is something else. For the moment we don’t have a pretty clear image about what this motorcycle might be as the only words said by Cleveland were: “The FXx is not a dirt bike, it is not a mountain bike, it is a cross between the two. A small, lightweight bike that can take you to places and allow you to do things that heavier and bigger bikes can’t.
At least we have the complete technical spesc which clearly suggest that we are looking a at pretty capable motorcycle.
Power comes from a 110cc 4-stroke single engine which is paired with a kick starter. The engine is mounted on a steel frame that seems to incorporate the fuel tank.
To be able to deal with any type of terrain without baking down, the motorycle is equipped with a pair of light 21 inch wheels which are wrapped in knobby tires.
You also get a narrow seat, disc brakes and a 22 mm carburettor. The new model is priced at 2100 EUR.
