The country’s third largest two-wheeler manufacturer, TVS Motor Company, is set to launch a 110-cc clutch-less motorcycle, a first in the world's second-largest two wheeler market.
The bike will be unveiled to the company's 600-strong dealer network in Macau on Wednesday and would be launched in the country later this month.
It will be powered by a 110cc engine with four gears, comparable to most other vehicles in its category, but will have an auto clutch system coupled with an anti-stall mechanism, which make the bike almost gearless.
“The bike will be launched in India shortly and it will be an answer to stressful driving in the cities," said a senior company official who did not wish to be named. "Despite the break through in technology, it will not have a premium price tag."
