Default BHPian starts a Motorcycle-themed cafe in Pune!

BHPian niks_devil666, an ex-software professional & avid biker was always passionate about motorcycles and food. Result? The Moto Café - a place by a biker, for bikers. In his words "Moto Café is a place where we can hang out, watch Moto GP races, talk about motorcycle touring, make tour plans and exchange route information. Or simply take a break after a ride to relax." They also have racing / multiplayer games on the PS 3.

Location : Bavdhan / Chandni Chowk which is close to the Highway and the meeting point for most Pune bikers.

Other events :

- Moto café has been actively promoting riding safety. There was a Helmet Safety awareness ride organized in association with XBHP & the Pune Automotive Racing Association. The "Safe Ride campaign" was carried out in Pune, with support from Pune Traffic Police. Moto café also happened to be the selected venue for the Kawasaki Ninja test ride event, organized in association with Bajaj Probiking.

Congrats Nikhil! You can count on a visit from me the next time I'm in Pune.

Everything looks great. Just one thing is missing though: the pic of Racing Demi-GOD "Valentina Rossi". His pic would give a finishing touch to the entire theme :o)

Congrats Nicks! Wish to see your shop in Madras sometime soon.

Hi Nikhi,

Congratulations on your new venture. Wish you all the success.

I am driving down to Pune from Thane on 13th. My destination is Sinhgad Road but I am planning to take a diversion through Chandni Chowk and visit your cafe.

Even if I am not able to make it on 13th then I will definitely try on either 14 or 15th Sept.

All the Best buddy. Keep the cafe world rocking.

I liked the cafe. Next week I'll be there in Pune and planing to visit the Moto Cafe.

niks_devil666 why don't you install a LCD and show the Discovery Turbo or nice videos of mobikes and you can sell some small car and bike related merchandise as well.
