 First of all I would start by saying that the logistics of this article is solely confound to comprehend the facts of giving a selfless support in transforming rural livelihoods.

The concept of 49CC Bikes emerged to aid in the paddle push bike riders with a transformation of a 49CC motor driven bike.

The launch operations in Sri Lanka were first carried thereafter by Singer Sri Lanka.

As the first models which came to the market were Two Stroke, many mechanical problems started to appear, and many disliked its use.

But in the recent years praiseworthy of Singer Sri Lanka through their gigantic local all Island NETWORK OF outlets, have made available the Four Stroke 49CC  BIKES.

These bikes have the ability of self starting with the push of a button and paddling and starting in an emergency.

These are a mode of ideal transportation for the rural villager in the remote areas, to move about with very less costs.

It is also a splendid and handy instrument for the traveling students in these distant areas; where they can comfortably ride to schools and back, where there is no regular public transportation.

In Rasnayakapura off Andigama in the Anamaduwa region where I have my Cashew and Coconut Plantations; I have provided several of these bikes to poor families; where they have had to walk in the dark where there is no electricity, more than one and a half kilometers through uncultivated lands ruled by serpents.

I should therefore suggest that the government should withdraw the import tax and the need for a license to ride; for these Four Stroke 49CC BIKES; for the benefit of the poorer communities.

    DR. NISHAN ! Long years back, I remember when at St. Joseph’s College, Fr. Claude Lawrence had an AUTOCYCLE. This was in the 1950s. It is the same thing what you are describing now.
