model pre­sented by Cleve­land Cy­cle Werks is called the Mis­fit. This is the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion of the mo­tor­cy­cle which fea­tures up­grades from the pre­vi­ous it­er­a­tion. The Mis­fit uses the same en­gine as the Ace range thus power out­put are iden­ti­cal and so are the cy­cle parts. Styling is the only dif­fer­en­ti­at­ing fac­tor as the bike in­cor­po­rates a rear cowl and up­swept ex­haust along with a dif­fer­ent tank to stand apart from the Ace Deluxe.

Ohio, USA based Cleve­land Cy­cleWerks makes their In­dia de­but with two of their mo­tor­cy­cle mod­els. Start­ing with the Ace which has three sub mod­els, the Ace Cafe, Ace Scram­bler and Ace Deluxe. The mo­tor­cy­cles are de­signed on a retro theme as is ev­i­dent from their styling and in tune with the cur­rent fad of neo-retro mo­tor­cy­cles. All the vari­ants are pow­ered by an air-cooled, 223cc en­gine de­vel­op­ing 15.4bhp and 16Nm. The Ace vari­ants fea­tures mod­ern alu­minium wheels, in­verted front forks while the rear sus­pen­sion is made up of con­ven­tional twin hy­draulic shock ab­sorbers.

The com­pany is cur­rently set­ting up their as­sem­bly plant in Pune, Ma­ha­rash­tra to as­sem­ble CKD units and price them in the range of Rs 2 to 2.5 lakh.
