Vardenchi at Auto Expo 2014: New Ultra Premium Motorcycle, Moto Morini Granpasso and Scrambler Launch

|

As we reported to you a while back, Vardenchi, the Indian maker of custom motorcycles, based on Royal Enfield chassis and engines, is finally getting into the big league. The custom motorcycle outfit is planning to bring the Italian Moto Morini brand to India. In addition, Vardenchi is also gearing up to unveil what the company prefers calling ‘India’s first ultra premium motorcycle‘. The new motorcycle will be a brand new custom, powered by the Moto Morini’s 1200cc engine, with much finer detailing and craftsmanship than hitherto seen on the brand’s custom bikes till now. Vardenchi at Auto Expo 2014 will carry out the dual job of unveiling its own ultra premium motorcycles, as well as launch the Moto Morini brand in India.

Akshay Varde, the founder and owner at Vardenchi customs, who also happens to be a good friend, has been creating beautiful custom bikes for 8 years now from his garage in Mumbai. For all this while, his vision has always been to create something super exclusive, what he prefers calling the first Indian ultra premium motorcycle.
