This is something I've wondered about too.

Imaging renting a sweet 600 cc Honda in lovely Goa. I'd consider paying Rs. 2000 - 4000 a day instead of the regular Rs. 350 for a FZ-16.

However, when i thought about this some more - the risks with renting expensive and powerful motorcycles is just too high!! Especially with the type of under-experienced and over-testosteroned riders these big bikes will attract.

Even just hanging around outside a bike rental shop in Krabi, Thailand (Rs 400 per day for a 400 cc Honda) - i saw two people come back, walking, with grazes all over them.


If this ever happens, I'd imagine there would have to be a heavy $ collateral, some sort of exclusive membership group, and an initial test of competence on 2 wheels.

I do remember some show on some channel featuring such rental superbikes which if i remember correctly was based in Delhi. I vaguely remember an Intruder & Ninja 650 being present in their collection, but i'm not very sure if they have a Harley yet.
If i do find out the name of the shop/club i shall post it here.

Don't know if it finally kicked off.

Good concept but, pricing is outrightly atrocious. Considering you can get a Bullet 500 for about Rs.400 in Goa !!

They should offer it atleast 30-40% lower than current rates or this business model is bound to fall flat on its face

Post Re: Harley / Superbike Rentals in India?

Just got to know about www.wickedride.in today from a friend on whatsapp and I find this thread. Talk about coincidence..

WickedRide's pricing is definitely way too premium. In a news article I read that they started this because the EMI for the bike was huge, and they wanted to share the burden by renting out. That's what they expanded with. But 10,000 for an Iron 883 on a weekend is outright expensive.

Maybe they got a little ambitious with a few early rent outs; hope they'll correct their prices sooner than later. Also their documentation required aren't user friendly. Plus fuel is additional (not like zoomcars rental, where fuel is paid by company, not user). Long way to go for these folks before minting money, is my feeling.
