Via Paul Crowe, I see that Cleveland CycleWerks has plans for some really exciting beginner/commuter bikes designed and slated for release very soon.
First up is my favorite, the Misfit. It’s a 250cc thumper that appears to be priced somewhere around $2400.
Next is a nice little bobber called the Heist, another 250cc bike with a price tag around $3k. I like the peanut tank. The hardtail would take a little getting used to, though.
The Hooligan is a motard offering. It probably looks nice, but its hard to tell with the horrific CCW watermark plastered all over the picture.
There are some other models in the works, including a cafe racer styled bike, a muscle bike, as well as another hardtail.
Assuming the build quality of these Chinese-manufactured bikes is up to par, CCW may have found a nice niche to sell into.
