It’s every bike lover’s dream to ride a luxurious cruiser like a Triumph or the ultimate Harley Davidson motorcycle in India today. These powerful machines have known to be the object of fantasy for anyone who really likes bikes and riding be it in the city or on cross-country trips. However, getting our hands on one of these luxury bikes is not really easy for us in India as it is in the western countries where all you need to do is produce some documents, pay and you are all set with your dream bike date for the day! Well, three friends from Bangalore are looking to bring precisely that, in Bengaluru, India!
Presenting Wicked Ride; Ride a Harley for a Day:
Varun Agni, a Post Graduate in Telecommunications from Maryland, Vivekanand HR a Chartered Accountant and Anil G, a Cost & Works Accountant. Three people from completely different backgrounds got together for one common bike. Biking! “All of us are really crazy about bikes and biking and bikes like the Harley, the Triumph had always been an aspiration for us and that is how Wicked Ride came into being.” Their company Wicked Ride offers luxury bike rentals in Bengaluru. They offer many different luxury as well as budget options ranging from the classic Royal Enfield Bullet 350 to the drool worthy Haley Davidson Iron 883 for a day!
Their first bike was the Continental GT café racer. It graced Wicked Ride on 3 April 2014. Since then, they’ve added the Harley Davidson Iron 883, Super Low 883, Street 750; Royal Enfield Classic Chrome, Desert Storm, Thunderbird; Triumph Bonneville to the collection.
It currently has Harley Davidson Iron 883, Super Low 883, Street 750; Royal Enfield Classic Chrome, Desert Storm, Thunderbird; Triumph Bonneville in its collection.
Vivekanand says, “The idea came to us while we were thinking on how to realize our dream of working on innovative ideas together. One fine day we suddenly had the thought of pooling in some money together to own a good, powerful bike. But the EMI of these luxury bikes was known to be pretty high so we decided to share the bike and even rent it out in order to cover a portion of these expenses. This is when we thought of converting this informal renting into a proper business idea.”
