Eider Motors has been expanding its base in the country with dealerships that have products on display, but the launch date is still out of sight.
After filing patents for the Leora scooter in July this year, Eider Motors has now filed patents for several motorcycles and components across its lineup. The Telangana based company has been in the works since the beginning of this year and is slowly expanding its base in the country with presence in several South Indian states as well as a dealership in Ulhasnagar, Maharashtra. The launch date though for commencing operations has been pushed time and again and is now nowhere in sight at present.
The patents have been filed for three of Eider Motors’ motorcycles including the Stoic, Ruddy and Dronzer. Starting with the Stoic, the bike is a commuter powered by a 107cc single-cylinder engine that churns out 7.6 PS of power and 6.5 Nm of torque and will be rivalling the likes of the Hero Splendor, Honda Dream Series, TVS Star City and others in the segment. The Dronzer on the other hand, is a 150cc sports commuter with the styling inspired from the now discontinued Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS. The bike is said to have a top speed of 120 km/hr and is the flagship motorcycle for the company.
In addition, Eider Motors is also tapping the potential of the small capacity cruiser bike segment with the Ruddy that draws power from a 150cc motor churning out 11.5 PS and 10.5 Nm of torque. While the official pricing is yet to be revealed, expect anything between Rs. 50,000/- to Rs. 75,000/- (on-road, Chennai), which also happens to be the most competitive price bracket in the Indian two-wheeler market. With the patents filed now, we might just hear from Eider Motors soon for details on the company’s future operations.
