The Indian biking scenario has seen a paradigm shift with new bikemakers setting foot in the market. The latest one to enter the Indian market is homegrown manufacturer Avantura Choppers, which will enter the market with two choppers. These road-legal bikes will be sold through a shop in Mumbai where they will be manufactured as well.
These bikes will have a 2000cc V-twin powerplant sourced from S&S along with a 6-speed transmission. S&S is known for its performance V-twin motors and is a favourite among custom bike builders the world over. While not much detail is available on the bike, we know that the bikes will use custom suspension sourced from Progressive and brake components from Beringer.
Avantura Customs was founded by Gaurav Aggarwal and Vijay Singh. According to Gaurav Aggarwal: “The brand ‘Avantura Choppers’ symbolizes the premium quality and supreme power that is a chopper motorcycle. With that in mind, we have produced these masterpieces for riding connoisseurs by curating the entire experience. And the fact that we’re the first Indian company in the space, adds challenge to the pride.”
The two new choppers are currently being homologated for India. The company plans to unveil the choppers on November 7th. Both the bikes are expected to be priced around the Rs 20 lakh mark. The USP of these bikes apart from the 2000cc motor will be that they can be customised as per the client’s taste. Avantura Choppers have a simulator where the customer can design his chopper according to his liking.
They will be offering a whole range of customisable accessories to go with the bikes. The company is in the process of appointing dealers in major metros and as demand grows, will look into expanding into other cities. Currently, Big Dog Motorcycles is the only competitor for Avantura when it comes to choppers, though the company says that the demand for big bikes of 1600cc and above will grow exponentially in the next four years.
