The sexiest bikes on Indian roads

Submitted by on Monday, 28 March 2011No Comment

Bikes — the best companion of the young generation! The most apt thing to ride on a busy Indian road ‘festooned’ with craters and holes, a road overloaded with four wheelers occupying much of the space and killing your precious time during rush hours.

As a matter of fact, a bike is a style statement for youths. And at the same time more of a necessity too. Have a look around your city and you would end up treating your eyes with some of the best looking hunks on two wheels. The myth is gone long back when Indian roads were rules by mopeds and less powerful engine bikes, and now more and more superbikes are making their spaces in the country.
