The 2019 India Bike Week is expected to see a gathering of over 20,000 motorcyclists from India and other parts of the world, in what would be the largest gathering yet.
Speaking on the sixth edition, Martin da Costa, CEO of 70 EMG and Director of India Bike Week said, "Biking is independence, its adventure. When you're on your bike, you're living life absolutely in the moment. It is one of the reasons for the stunning growth of the Indian biking community over the last 6 years. I can't believe that six years have passed since our first India Bike Week in 2013. As always, we've poured our heart and soul into making this the largest and safest celebration for the biking fraternity in every part of the country and the world. We broke a record last year as we tripled in attendance since 2013, so I'm certain that this year is going to be off the hook. I'm counting the minutes till we can swing a leg over our bikes and join the Great Migration down to Vagator for IBW 2019!"
