BMW Motorrad India will organise four rides, namely Deccan Safari, Mountain Safari, Desert Safari and International Safari, for its customers in India.
BMW Motorrad has introduced a riding experience for its customers in India. Called the BMW Motorrad Safari, this programme is conceptualised exclusively for BMW motorcycle owners, says the company. Now, given the fact that BMW’s adventure motorcycles are a huge hit in India, the whole experience is based only around the touring theme. The manufacturer will organise four rides, namely Deccan Safari, Mountain Safari, Desert Safari and International Safari, under the new initiative. The first customer ride – the Deccan Safari – is all set to kick off from Bengaluru on 23 March 2018 and reach Kabani on 25th March 2018.
The BMW Motorrad Safari is going to be a 5-to-7-day trip, where the customers will start and end the journey on the same location. Of course, it’ll be a completely guided tour. And, while all the riders will have to ride in groups, BMW says that the participants will be allowed to ‘go at their own pace’. That said, the basic riding rules will be applicable – first and foremost, you need to have a BMW motorcycle in a good technical condition and you have to have a valid driver’s license. Plus, you should be dressed in proper and safe riding gear before hopping on your ride.
Commenting on the launch of the BMW Motorrad Safari in India, Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India, said, ‘Motorcycling is a unique way to explore one’s passion for travelling, discovering new terrains and enjoying a sense of freedom. Owning a BMW Motorrad bike opens up a world of experiences for our customers. Through a unique riding engagement like BMW Motorrad Safari, we will introduce them to new adventures and help them discover what they can do with their Motorrad bikes. Riding is even better when you have company on the road. BMW Motorrad Safari will create outstanding moments, stories and journeys for everyone who is a part of it.’
The introduction of the BMW Motorrad Safari is a welcome move from the manufacturer. With big adventure bikes rapidly gaining popularity in India, it’s important to teach the riders of these big behemoths a thing or two about adventure touring. Apart from BMW, Triumph Motorcycles India also organises the Tiger Academy for its owners in India.
