The Indian motorcycle ethnicity and background can be studied through eras. The first era comprised of the high octane tuned-up motorcycles from the pre or early independence years and which were set in the opposition and were to be fought against one another on tracks like the famous Sholavaram race track and the less renowned Agara and Sulur airstrips.
The second era was the one with the modern-day and fashionable age of high-end and high-performance motorcycles and bikes that are more mainframe than that of a motorcycle.
The earlier or the first era had motorcycles which had to be customized for sole or one purpose only, out–and–out speed and performance. The drive trains used to be taken apart and worked up to squash as much energy as possible out of them while keeping the movement within the class.
Despite this, in between both the eras were a period where the motorcycle culture was taken aback due to many issues and problems that were overpowering the developing economy of the country. But this phase was overcome with time which thankfully, didn`t hinder the progress of the economy and the surviving motorcycle culture. The second era saw the rise of the motorcycle culture due to foreign bikes such as Haya Busas, R1’s, GSXR’s, Kawi Z’s, and the odd Italians in the form of Ducatis and Aprilias.
