Red Alert comrades – (Disclaimer i didnt see this bike personally, all the views are based on internet reports)Well, Eider ZAARA did impress me at least visually with sturdy looks and great aesthetics not seen in regular bikes. Eider is Chinese company re branded for Indian audiances & taste (Not so sure about the origins of the company). Company has recently launched a sturdy looking cruiser; Zaara cruiser in India priced at Rs. 79,113 (ex-showroom Andhra Pradesh).
At the given price, the Zaara competes with the only other cruiser model under Rs. 1 lakh, the Bajaj Avenger.
Powering the Zaara is a 223cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, OHC petrol motor producing 18 BHP of power and 15.5 Nm of torque matched to a 5-speed gearbox. Fuel is fed via a carburetor.
Styling is typical of cruisers and includes a 1×2 exhaust pipe, projector headlamp with LED DRL, matte paint, dark theme with engine and exhaust painted in black, etc. Spoked rims maintain the old school cruiser styling and alloy wheels aren’t available even as an option.
Currently information about the company is very scarce. I went to their website for more information (http://www.eidermotors.com/about.html ); very unprofessionally their website still uses the lorum ipusm and dummy text in most of the places. There is absolutely very less information about the dealerships of Eider Motors is available online. From their official website, we can find that they have some offices in AndhraPradesh, Telegana and Karnataka. The address, email id and phones numbers of Eider Motor’s are listed below.
