    Exactly. A naked or a low capacity retro/classic is needed in India.

    Why on earth would anyone need a slipper clutch on a 250cc bike?

    First, the whole point of a slipper clutch is to avoid rear wheel hop due to the substantial braking effect of high-displacement high-compression engines. A 250cc motor doesn't generate a lot of engine braking due to its small size, and can easily be overpowered by the weight of the rider plus bike. Second, this kind of rear wheel chatter is really only a problem on a track where you have high speeds and run on the ragged edge of traction. Even most US riders don't ride that way all that often even though we ride much larger bikes, and it's even less likely at the slower speeds on Indian roads. Thus, a slipper clutch is unnecessary added complexity, superfluous on such a low-displacement motorcycle no matter how much body cladding they wrap it in.

    doesn't mean the rear wheel won't lock up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
