Harley Davidson India has introduced the very first Flat Track experience in the country for motorcycle enthusiasts. Led by Marco Belli, the International Flat Track legend and master of the Di Traverso school in Italy, a special two day masterclass and training session was conducted for a select few at John Singh Speedway in Shahpura (near Jaipur). The enthusiastic bunch shared a great camaraderie on and off the track as they learnt tips and tricks from Marco Belli while being trained in the techniques of handling a Flat Track motorcycle.

2018 Harley Davidson Low Rider & Deluxe were launched last month in India!

Peter MacKenzie, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson India and China said, “Marco Belli has a long standing association with Harley-Davidson® and we’re extremely happy to have him lead the first Harley-Davidson® Flat Track experience in India. With this endeavor, we wish to garner more acceptance for the sport, encourage the setting-up of amateur flat tracks in the country and continue to fulfil dreams of personal freedom through riding experiences and events curated for like-minded individuals.” Day one was dominated by introduction to Flat Track and training sessions while Day two saw thrilling races amongst the participants. Four Harley-Davidson Street Rod motorcycles were specially customized by Vijay Singh Ajairajpura of Rajputana Customs for this purpose.

Talking about this project, Vijay Singh Ajairajpura of Rajputana Customs said “We designed the first purpose-built Harley-Davidson Street 750 that was showcased during the exhibition rides at India Bike Week in 2017. The Street Rod is a versatile machine that holds well not only in the urban jungle but also on the dirt track. We are extremely proud to have been associated on this journey with Harley-Davidson.” Under his expertise, the Street Rod showcased its versatility, from being the master of the street to a purpose-built Flat Track motorcycle with modified handlebars, seat units, fuel tank, exhaust, wheels and tyres. For those asking, unlike motocross or road races where the riders are spread out over a large area, a spectator in the stands at a flat track race has access to thrilling action at all times.
