Cleveland Cyclewerks delays India launch by 5 months to October 2018

NEW DELHI: Ohio-based motorcycle manufacturer Cleveland Cyclewerks (CCW) has delayed by five months, the launch of its first product in India by October this year.

According to sources, the American motorcycle manufacturer has deferred the launch due to delay in setting up of the distribution network.

The company announced the delay on micro blogging site Twitter.

During the Auto Expo this year, the company announced its plans to roll out the first product by June 2018. ETAuto was the first to confirm the entry of CCW at the time of the Expo.

This is the second time when CCW has delayed its launch in India. Earlier, it had planned to launch its Ace models by mid-2017.

Founded by three Americans Scott Colosimo, Jarrod Streng, and Curtis Ray in 2009, the company showcased four new models – Misfit, Ace Deluxe, Ace Scrambler and Ace Cafe at Auto Expo 2018.

The company also offers mid-range motorcycles having a displacement of 125cc to 450cc and all the motorcycles are powered by single-cylinder engines.

CCW, which also specialises in custom bikes, has broadly two segments of motorcycles divided into Classic Models and Modern Models.

In India, the company has tied-up with Hyderabad based Laish-Madison Motor Werks for production and distribution in the country.
