Over the past few years, we have seen that the trend in our Motorcycle of the Yearcategory being dominated by small capacity motorcycles has been changing. This year out of the 15motorcycles that have been nominated for the Motorcycle of the Year award, only seven were under 200cc. That means over half of the launches this year has been motorcycles that aren't out to win the fuel efficiency crown.
Meanwhile, the Scooter of the Year category had only two contenders this year.
Our jury for the tw0-wheeler category comprises of Anand Dharmarajwhoheads IndiMotard,BharathReddy of British Nutritions,SiddharthVardharajan who'sresponsible for the California Superbike School in India, ex-Moto3 racerSarath Kumar,Vivek Jaisingh,owner of the Performance Racing Store and our very own Shubhabrata Marmar.
