Following the success of the Blaze, Kinetic announced more specific 2007 plans today. As previously announced, the Indian company will release three scooters this year. The new details:
- The first scooter (due “as soon as April”) will be called the Euro, with a 125-135 cc engine and targeted towards whatever passes as a “luxury” market in India. It will be based on the design of one of the seven designs licensed from Italjet,
though it’s not clear whichthe Italjet Jet Set.
- The second scooter will be a four-stroke, sub-100cc, SYM-designed scooterette to be launched in May (SYM–based in Taiwan–owns 11.1% of Kinetic).
- The third scooter (India never ceases to amaze us) will be the Dragster. The Business Standard describes the Dragster as “co-owned by Italjet and KMCLâ€¦the only brand that [was] not completely bought out by the two-wheeler manufacturer.” The Kinetic/Italjet Dragster is due out by the end of the year. Feel free to speculate away on whether this will be the same Dragster touted by Italjet and DiamoUSA.

Might the Euro be the Velocifero? Should this give me more or less hope for my brand new Dragster I plan on buying? This raises more questions for sure.

Only 2 months away and they don’t know which model?
They know, but that little detail is apparently not important to readers of the Business Standard of India.
Actually, I bothered to look it up… It’s the Italjet Jet Set:
