Though Cleveland CycleWerks have launched both the bikes in a competitive price bracket, the fact remains that these bike not only have to compete with Royal Enfield, but also with other 150cc motorcycles in its segment on sale in the country which are priced at around Rs.80,000-90,000. This price cut should attract more buyers to the brand.
