Auto Expo 2018 is getting closer and American motorcycle brand Cleveland CycleWerks will be venturing into the Indian auto market with its retro-inspired American bikes. Cleveland will be initially launching two models in India from its range of bikes. Various design options for both the models would be available for the Indian consumer and it will be showcased at the upcoming Auto Expo 2018. The company will launch a total of five motorcycles in India in the first year of its operations. The two bikes that will be launched at Auto Expo 2018 by the company are Misfit and Ace Deluxe. The official website of Cleveland Cyclewerks has already gone LIVE and it is showing up three motorcycles that have been named Misfit, Ace Deluxe & FXR. While the first two models will come with a pure retro theme, the latter is a lightweight off-road bike. The company is headquartered in Mumbai and has a fully integrated assembly facility in Pune. Starting off with the Cleveland Cyclewerks Misfit, the bike comes with a retro theme and has been equipped with beefy inverted forks at the front with twin shock absorbers at the rear. The motorcycle receives a rounded headlamp up front that has chrome finishing on it. The twin-pod instrument cluster is an add-on when it comes to old-school vintage charm. The motorcycle has been fitted with a single saddle. The rear body cowl on the motorcycle looks removable. The rear end of the motorcycle has an LED strip acting like a tail lamp. The motorcycle sources its power from a 250cc engine and the power and torque outputs are a mystery at the moment. More details will be revealed during Auto Expo 2018.

The second model that will be launched by Cleveland Cyclewerks at Auto Expo 2018 is the Ace Deluxe. The bike has comparatively lesser commanding aesthetics than Misfit that is mentioned earlier. The bike gets a quite basic looking rounded headlamp at the front along with humble looking rear view mirrors. This motorcycle will also come with a single seat and the rear seat cowl can be removable in favour of practicality factor. The single pod instrument cluster on the motorcycle looks quite simple and only has the necessary readouts. Due to all the simplicity, the Cleveland Cyclewerks Ace Deluxe is expected to be priced lower than Misfit. Price announcement to take place at Auto Expo 2018.

Cleveland Cyclewerks will be present at Hall number 8 at India Expo Mart in Greater Noida where Auto Expo 2018 is scheduled to take place. Stay tuned with us to get yourself updated on all the happenings from Asia's largest motor show.
