Kanpur based Indian two wheeler manufacturer Lohia Machinery Limited, or LML as we know it, has been out of action since some time now. A lot of this can be attributed to the entering of very convenient and well sorted out automatic scooters and the geared scoots going out of fashion. Another factor is the manufacturer failing to seamlessly transit itself into the motorcycle segment.
Now, LML showcased a new product at the EICMA motorcycle show and this can very well be LML’s come back product. Powered the new LML Star 4T Automatica is a 125cc four stroke engine which is mated to a CVT transmission. This motor becomes the first 4 stroke engine to come from the Indian manufacture. The new motor pumps out a max. power output of 6.8 PS@8,000 rpm has a claimed fuel efficiency of 45 Kmpl.
The CVT on duty in the new LML Star 4T Automatica comes from popular transmission maker Adler. As with all new auto scoots, the new LML Star 4T Automatica has its rear brake mounted on the handle bar instead of the floor board.
The new scooter from LML looks promising and goes on sale in international markets next month. The LML Star 4T Automatica will have a sticker price of 2,250 Euros in Europe. It is currently unknown if the new LML would be launched in its home market.
