A long time ago, we told you Cleveland Cyclewerks had debuted their Misfit Gen II in Asia. Now, it’s appeared on their US website and they seem to be putting a marketing push on it.
About a year ago, we showed you the Misfit II, but details were sketchy. Later, we told you the bike was powered by a Cagiva-derived motor, and that it was headed to North America eventually. Now, it’s on their US site, but we don’t see an MSRP and we don’t see it on their Canadian site.
Whether it will ever make it to Canada is indeed a good question. CCW announced a new Canadian distributor this year, but their bikes aren’t coming in-country in any great numbers yet. Even if they decide to bring the new Misfit in, we don’t know when we’d realistically expect to see it.
However, we do know that it is a fine-looking motorcycle, especially considering its made-in-China origins. You can see more details of the Misfit Gen II in the video below.
Cleveland Cyclewerks also has some other interesting machines on their site at the moment, including photos of a little 250 scrambler. Could it be true? Is someone finally getting it, and building a scrambler with classic styling in an affordable package? It sounds too good to be true!
Details, again, are slim on the Scrambler; it could simply be a custom job, put together from accessory parts. Or, it could be a variation of the Ace. Either way, nobody is making an affordable entry-level scrambler, and this bike would certainly be an attention-grabber if it really came to market. Ducati and Triumph’s scramblers are affordable, relative to the rest of their lineup, but a kid certainly can’t buy one working at a McJob. It’s high time someone took a more affordable bike (Suzuki TU250, or even a Sym Wolf) and scramblerized it. Maybe the Ace will do the job.
