Women on motorcycles are a small minority in India, even smaller is the number of women who ride motorcycles built by the iconic lifestyle motorcycle brand, Royal Enfield. One motorcycle club based out of Bangalore aims to change all of that within the next half a decade. Ladies and Gentlemen, say hello to the latest all women motorcycle club in town, HopOnGurls. This motorcycle club however is one with a twist.
It doesn’t just encourage women to take to riding motorcycles, but while doing so actively encourages them to try riding the motorcycles made by Royal Enfield. Royal Enfield motorcycles weigh a portly 180 Kilograms and this weight is something that scares most men away from this motorcycle, leave alone women riding them. While it is another story that the Bullet is remarkably easy to ride with its inherent stability that 19 inch wheels bring to the table, most folks hesitate to ride this motorcycle due to the sheer weight involved.
Royal Enfield, as a lifestyle motorcycle maker does encourage riders to try out its motorcycles and feel for themselves how easy and effortless it is really to ride a Royal Enfield. Taking this initiative one step ahead are he folks at HopOnGurls, who also offer to teach women how to ride a motorcycle, to be specific a Royal Enfield motorcycle. So, if you’re a woman situated in Bangalore and always wanted to get onto the motorcycling bandwagon, here is you’re best chance to romance the roads on a Royal Enfield.
