The sixth edition of Harley-Davidsonâs signature music festival, Harley Rock Riders, is slotted for October 30-31, 2015. The motorcycle maker will be showcasing its 2016 Dark Custom range alongside international and domestic rock acts at the Richardson Cruddas Foundry at Byculla, Mumbai.
The highlight for motorcycle enthusiasts (and Harley loyalists) should be the Find Your Freedom contest for custom motorcycles. Some of Indiaâs best custom bike builders including TNT Motorcycles, Eimor Customs, Motomiu, Tj-Moto and Godspeed Customs will be showcasing their contenders for the title of Custom Champion.
Aspiring Harley-Davidson owners can also experience the lifestyle and culture associated with the brand at the boot camp that will be set up in the same premises on November 1, 2015. The tickets for the boot camp though come at a premium over the season pass for the festival.
Pallavi Singh, director marketing, Harley-Davidson India, said, âSelf-expression comes in many forms and for years, Harley-Davidson has been synonymous with customisation. This season of HRR, we will see that live. Enthusiasts will also have an opportunity to experience our new Dark Custom motorcycles which are an ideal choice for riders seeking a stripped down, minimalist machine ready to customise! The Find your Freedom contest at HRR continues, allowing artists the platform to express themselves through music. This year, we once again hope to see some great talent emerge.â
The line-up of artists for the 2015 Harley Rock Riders includes Megadeth, The Wailers (of Bob Marley and The Wailers), Scribe, Bhayanak Maut, Noiseware, Indus Creed, Superfuzz, Demonic ResurrectionÂ andÂ The Lightyears Explode.
