    The Indian Motorcycle League has been planned along the lines of the Indian Premier League of cricket. The IML will be hosted in three cities of Coimbatore, Chennai and Noida. Motorcycle Racers, K Rajini, Sarath Kumar, K Jagan, and Harry Sylvester were the riders at the launch of the IML. Rasheed Khan is the chairman of this League.

    The 40 participating riders will be from 8 cities and will take part in endurance races on the tracks of Coimbatore, Chennai and Noida. The inaugural round will be held in Coimbatore in February. This is an FMSCI approved series and is being backed by TVS Racing, who will be providing TVS Apache 180 motorcycles to the riders to compete.

    Rasheed Khan, Chairman, IML -

    "It gives us immense pleasure to announce the arrival of the Indian Motorcycle League (IML), a trendsetter and the first of its kind in Two Wheeler Racing in Indian motorsports with a new format,"

    We have many talented young riders in India, but unfortunately the opportunities for them to perform are very limited. Keeping this in mind, IML has drawn up a plan to provide an opportunity to all the potential riders in India.

    "IML will be providing all the necessary riding equipment and the bikes to each of the franchise team. Each team will also be provided its own and dedicated coach to train riders. All that the riders have to do is to come to the track and IML will make sure that everything is arranged for them to take part in the race, that they are, 'Ready to Race'."
    The Indian Motorcycle League will be featuring only Indian Riders in its inaugural year, the second year will see riders from Asia participating and the third year will see riders from around the globe racing in the IML.

    This is a much needed initiative for motorcycle aficionados in India, as it will give a lot of youngsters a chance to showcase their skills and passion in a constructive manner and preparing them for the future.

    Good news...

    so, does that mean, TVS will be providing the bikes to race on... and we just have to walk in pick a bike and race, and whether all bikes provided will be equal..??

    That seems to be the case. Of course you will be sloshing out a good amount of dough for that

    To Quote (and fork) an age old saying: All bikes will be equal. But some bikes will be more equal than others.

    Biking is not about how many Km/h you put on your Speedo. It's about how many miles you put on your Odo. Ride Safe, Ride Long!
