Default Report & Pics: India Bike Week 2016 @ Goa

Goa - simply utter the name of this state and most of us have a smile on our face. The ultimate leisure destination of India has something for everyone throughout the year, whether it's the beaches, villages or markets. However, one of Goa's signatures for the past few years happens for just two days out of 365 (366 this year ).

India Bike Week returned for its 4th edition this year and started just as the winter ended. With temperatures soaring, you'd think that people would crave for the comfort of a car with the air-con on full blast. The sun's rage though, couldn't compete with the allure of the country's biggest biker fest and 2016 too, saw the arrival of bikers from different wings of the country to celebrate a passion that's becoming a religion. Here's a little taste of what went down at IBW 2016.

Support from the community and brands has taken IBW to its 4th edition:

This time, the venue wasn't the Vagator Hill Top. IBW was hosted at the Arpora Sporting Ground instead:

The IBW box office. Suffice it to say, the crowd got a lot larger as the day progressed:

Bugota bikes

Bugota presented motorcycles in the most basic sense. These concepts are literally bicycles with auxiliary internal combustion engines:

Accelerator lever integrated like in a motorcycle:

This bike (named "Bruteforce") has a 1.5L fuel tank and could be priced around Rs 26,000. All of the bikes get a 24.7cc, 2-stroke engine. No licence required and these bikes could hit the market in the next 3 months:

Bugota El Classico. Expected to be priced around Rs. 62,000:
Report & Pics: India Bike Week 2016 @ Goa-dsc06079.jpg

The idea behind these bicycles is to mix exercise and transport:
Report & Pics: India Bike Week 2016 @ Goa-dsc06080.jpg

You can use the engine to ride to work and switch to your gym clothes and pedal back home. With the kind of slow traffic I go through, such a concept does make a lot of sense:
