Avantura Choppers, India’s first premium chopper motorcycle brand announced the launch of its first two models, the Rudra & Pravega. With a 2,000cc displacement, these made-to-order machines will take pre-bookings starting from the India Bike Week 2017 with each motorcycle being personalized for its rider. These production grade motorcycles will be fully certified by the ARAI at the time of delivery and priced at INR 23.90 lakhs for the Rudra and INR 21.40 lakhs for the Pravega (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
Avantura Choppers has roped in the legendary Kevin Alsop (Founder of Big Bear Choppers, USA) as the Chief Design Engineer of the brand. Kevin, considered an ultimate global authority on choppers, has designed the Rudra & Pravega to create the original chopper experience for Indian riders, considering every detail to suit local riding conditions. The newest motorcycle brand from India, Avantura Choppers has set-up strategic partnerships with global manufacturers like S&S Engines, Beringer braking systems, Primo suspensions, Mustang seats, Kellermann lights and Avon tires to be OEMs for their world-class product line.
Avantura Chopper motorcycles, curated for connoisseurs, are an extension of one’s personality, designed to invoke the emotion of owning the world, driven by passion, speed, determination and power. The brand name originates from the words Avanindra and Tura in Sanskrit. Both Rudra and Pravega have specially crafted geometries with similar base design engineering, giving Indian motorheads the best-in-class chopper experience. Rudra means ‘the ultimate roar’ and signifies a raw enchanting power, brought to life by its majestic body type, technical configuration and compelling road presence. Drawing from the words ‘Pravah’ and ‘Vega’ in Sanskrit, Pravega stands for ‘a tryst with the wind’. Both models are the perfect balance between power, agility, speed and grace, all in a beautifully designed unique package.
Speaking about the launch of the first two models, Gaurav A Aggarwal, Founder & CEO of Avantura Choppers said, “The Rudra & Pravega are our first two models offering the Indian rider, an unparalleled biking experience. We set out to manufacture a product from the ground-up, which maintains the highest standards of production quality while ensuring a mind-blowing ride. It is my firm belief that the evolving riding community will find that we have done justice to our ambition.”
Adding to the above, Vijay Singh, Co-founder & CRO of Avantura Choppers said, “Our motorcycles are symbols of power and panache, packaged in a unique design and personalized to suit the comfort of its rider. We can’t wait to hit the road and draw insights from the experience of our consumers.”
Elaborating on the brand, Amitabh Biswas, Founding Partner & CMO of Avantura Choppers said, “We are proud to be the first premium motorcycle brand from India and the newest in 33 years. Pioneering this revolution, Avantura Choppers will be the next glorious chapter of the Make In India story. We will reach out to our TG directly through their circles of influence and frequently in their environments of relevance, to immerse the brand in their eco-system. We look forward to meeting a lot of people at the forthcoming India Bike Week”.
