  • Motorcycle Schools

    Hello guys, I am in need for a proper motorcycle school in India preferably around my hometown. I planned on going to CSS this year but unfortunately I have some other events coinciding with their scheduled dates. In the meantime (entirety of 2016) I wanted to master my basic motorcycle riding and was hoping you guys could help me out!

    Looking forward to suggestions

    Thank you

    Clarification: What I mean by a motorcycle school is that it teaches the basics of motorcycle riding SPECIALLY in the City NOT track oriented riding. I self learnt riding which I am not satisfied with so I wanted to attend a proper school like the ones they have in say for example UK (Roadcraft Nottingham). My riding currently is just crude and I want to fine tune it!

    As for track riding, I will do that next year in CSS

    GBD approved!

    ​Nothing like track experience to fine tune the nuances of riding. I shall look forward to our members' replies on this one.

      Not sure if you would consider Motovation Track Days as a proper 'motorcycle school'. Its worth a shot. Though I think the track is shot, is primarily a go-kart track and hence good for smaller bikes, if you can master this on an RC200 ... maybe. Otherwise none in Hyderabad that I can think of.

        I am very well aware of that, yes. But do they teach you with Regards to City riding other than Track oriented riding?

          The track is so small, I doubt it will enhance your real-world track skills. It will improve you driving skills in general and help you understand your bike better. Just my IMO ...

            I am not too concerned about 'track' riding for now. I want to fine tune my City riding skills. I spend majority of my motoring time in the City so thats my priority.

              Sorry to hijack your thread, but was myself considering a school to master nuances of riding.
              Read about Apex Racing Academy in Coimbatore.
              Any members who have been there or can help out
              Thanks

                Surprised no one has brought this up, California Superbike school is in India next month. The techniques taught are usable on the street as well.

                    No offense meant here though, but IMO, whatever you learn there for CITY riding, I am not sure if you can apply your learning to the fullest with future Rossi and Marquez lurking on our Indian roads , who are ready to find trouble in the form of racing on street. You may try to obey traffic rules and may get banged from behind for stopping at a red signal when no one is there on the road. You may stick to a lane or follow lane discipline or not filter at all, that never works in our country where the vehicle population is more than the people itself (just assuming).

                    Again, this is just my opinion on the schools where they teach stuffs and how practical it could be on our day-to-day life.

                      I totally understand what you are saying. But you see this about self satisfaction. I am least bothered about what others do on the street. Theres been couple of situations where I follow basic traffic rules that the Indian public is oblivious to such as Stopping behind the Stop Line, some people behind me have approached and asked me why I stand behind the line. I tell and show them the reason. Changing one person at a time, one step at a time. You gota start somewhere. We have so many people on this forum. If we all do nothing, how do you expect to change motoring condition in INdia? I do my part whenever I can.

                        Quite the contrary, their schools teach basic skills useful in everyday riding.
                        I'd suggest reading twist of the wrist as a start, if you haven't already.
                        Good Luck!

                          Track Racing schools around Delhi ?

                          Hey guys , I was also looking for racing schools around Delhi but couldn't find one.
                          Any pointers would be great.

                          I just came up with Apex, but that's no way close.

                              I have attended the Apex racing academy and found it quite good. The complete course is structured into three levels and the slots are spread across the year. The fee has gone up though this year.
