Harley-Davidson® India debuted its very first Flat Track experience in India 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 participants learnt tips and tricks from Marco Belli while being trained in the techniques of handling a Flat Track motorcycle. Day one was dominated by introduction to Flat Track and training sessions while Day two saw thrilling races amongst the participants.
Flat Track racing calls for motorcycles that can cater to the unique requirements of the sport. For this purpose, four Harley-Davidson Street Rod motorcycles were specially customized by Vijay Singh Ajairajpura of Rajputana Customs. 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.
Peter MacKenzie, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson India and China said that Marco Belli has a long standing association with Harley-Davidson and the Company is happy to have him lead the first Harley-Davidson Flat Track experience in India. With this endeavor, Harley-Davidson aims 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.
