Motorcycle with 85 km/ltr. Perfect for eco-life promoters.
Today Treet corporation has launched a 50cc bike.Yes, its the same Treet corp which produces shaving blades.
They have been into bike making since a long time.May be some of you would remember "Iftakahar Thakur" in its first add of 70 cc bike ,it was the time when Pak-hero reluanched.
But their extensive experience in motorcycle manufacturing made them able to predict up-coming market's targets.
Due to which they launched 50 cc scooter.And unlike Piaggio Vespa (Italia) its not 150 cc and will not cost you 200,000.Which makes it practically fuel & cost effective.The flaw can be recovered with electric scooters available in market.However as all we know that there aren't any electrical stations (bijli pump) so the e scooter fails there.
Here they come with a brilliant idea. As someone said history repeats itself,so they proved it.
In 1959 Honda came into being and the first ever motorcycle they produced was Honda c50 cub.Even at that time it was auto clutch and some prior models were auto gears as well. You will only find good people on Honda that was the tag line of there marketing campaign in USA.So they could differentiate themselves from bully riders of Harley Davidson(hippie bike)
Same is the technology they have used.But with the 21st century technology they have maintained to achieve the following.
Self start + kick start
6.5 ltr petrol tank beneath the seat
600 ml oil capacity
L.E.D head and tale lights
Drum brakes (both wheel)
Speedometer with mark of fuel gauge
Glove box under seat
And with collaboration of Chinese brand they come up with low price.
