    Re: Motorcycle Schools

    [MENTION=78079]RoyalIndian[/MENTION], all the schools I have listed in my previous post conduct the training on tracks. Reason 1: No traffic and it's a controlled environment to get skilled. Reason 2: The tarmac conditions will be apt to practice our skills with trainers along.

    All the above listed riding schools trains you on how to become a better Rider and then Track oriented riding. If you are still not convinced and think they all train the students to become Racers, or CSS is for Big bikes. I suggest you go join a local motor driving school if they teach you riding.

    N.B CSS provide Apache RTR / R15 for rent to students which is not a Big bike. Don't get misguided with their name.

      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.
      Thanks man! Very detailed & informative answer with links, much appreciated.
      Any idea on how do these compare to each other?

        Well! Apex is good but a little pricey this year onwards, because it's 25k for each level, totally 3 levels. Racr is good but the topics are all taken in 2-3 days time period, so less track time to practice. CSS is like the superbowl of the riding schools but will make a big hole in the pocket on the go. Motovation is the balanced one, Period! the others i have not heard much of their events happening.

            AFAIK, there hasn't been any such since there are no motorcycle race tracks there. However, KTM Orange days happen on Go-kart tracks but that's different from what happens at riding schools.

              Celebrity Sir. I know you are busy signing autographs But could you please start a thread sharing your experience of attending your training sessions at Apex. It will help others who are interested.

              Thanks

                      RACR have their sessions in BIC (delhi).
                      and they do not take fresh riders/beginners/no riding experience.

                        I saw some of the chumps riding in RACR's first edition at BIC. Some of those guys looked like they didn't know the gear lever from the clutch lever!

                        I do not know they selection criteria, but clearly many of those riders were absolute novices. I say this from sight and not from their website!

                            Can you give me some details as to how it operates, when I can enroll and such? Not much information given on their website. They have vaguely asked me to keep watching their FB page feed for updates as they are taking part in the MMSC event it is I think.

                              hmmm..... thats good news then i guess ?!

                              i watched a powerdrift video where they had someone from their crew riding on rc 200 (racr 1st event) and he was a newbie too.
                              may be after first few sessions they must have realised that newbies are time waste ?!


                              how can people be a Regular on such academies ?!
                              the cost is exorbitant !!

                              and how do we judge which academy is vfm ?
                              lol

                              many of them charge Rs.7500 per day for r15's/apache's.



                              P.S --- SORRY guys. My mistake.

                              The RACR helds its track riding training sessions in all the three tracks of india randomly. And they DO take novice riders - i just called them and cleared things up from their guy.

                              2 day session - charge 50k approx (training + refreshments)
                              If u rent their bike (rc390) - 12,000
                              March 30 and 31st 2016 @ BIC N.delhi.

                              Cheers.

                                Hello,

                                Nikhil & I run Motovation Track Days. As far as we know we are the only Motorcycle Riding School based out of India.

                                Both of us have raced, toured, commuted and lived/breathed motorcycles for a better half of our lives and we wanted to make track days & training affordable to everyone. We are not a race school and we would not want to misguide anyone into thinking we are one. We are a Safety Riding School, our goal is to make you safer and more confident, if becoming faster is a by product of that, then more power to you.

                                We have received a lot of flak for conducting our training/track days on smaller tracks but considering even the slowest riders average 50kmph, the pace is by no means slow, it does however mean that you get to experience real world speeds. Being fast on a track doesn't make you safe in the real world. We help you understand your motorcycle better, we help you find its limits as well as yours in a safe controlled environment. You are welcome to come down and watch how we get things done during our next track day. If you feel it is something that works for you then please do join in.

                                Do check us out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/motovationtrackdays/


                                Also I have been asked to stop accepting pizza as payment for track days. #staymotovated
                                Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary thats what gets you ...
