Most Affordable Motorcycles with Slipper Clutch in India

Although a premium piece of technology, the slipper clutch is found in several motorcycles in India that retails at an economical price-tag

In the present generation, motorcycles are equipped with various technology that enable riders to ride in a more safe and efficient form. Out of all the new technologies in motorcycles, one of the most vital pieces of machinery is the slipper clutch, which facilitates the riders to downshift at a greater velocity by matching the speed of the engine to the speed of tyres. In short, it restricts the rear wheel of the motorcycles from clattering under hard braking and immediate downshifting scenarios.
