Since my childhood I grew up watching videos of ghost riders and other teams and that was when my craze for bikes started. I would watch the show just for the bikes. Later, my dad gifted me a black Pulsar 220 and an ISI marked helmet. That was a dream come true moment. A sports bike is something which I dreamt and wanted since my childhood as I was really passionate about bikes. And today as I own one, all I can say about sports bike is that just a small ride with it can give me immense pleasure. It’s a very different feeling which can be felt only when experienced.

Bajaj pulsar needs no introduction in India. It’s a performance oriented Indian bike which has created lot of buzz in the market. It takes only few seconds to impress you with its power. 220F captured the hearts of youth by its powerful performance and I’m one of them. Seeing my elders with the bikes made me force my dad to buy me that bike and that moment was when I understood that my love for the sports bike is equal to my life. My bike has become my all time company and it is very important in my life and it will always be till my end. Rajiv kanth, second year student of Mass Communication

I started biking seven I started biking seven years back. The only thing which made me crazy about sports bikes is the speed. Speed and biking attract me a lot. Foreign bikes do justice to a guys dream of riding a sports bike. If we observe we can find a huge difference between Indian and foreign sports bikes. Sports bikes and its speed are just like heaven. Guys don’t need any other pass time if they have their own bike. Though a point to be noted is that speed may kill but it actually thrills most of the guys.  Faizan, event planner
