Video: Jury rounds for the 2016 CNBC-TV18 OVERDRIVE Motorcycle and Scooter of the Year

09 Dec 2015 / 0

Over the past few years, we have seen that the trend in our Motorcycle of the Year category being dominated by small capacity motorcycles has been changing. This year out of the 15 motorcycles 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 Dharmaraj¬†who¬†heads IndiMotard,¬†Bharath¬†Reddy of British Nutritions,¬†Siddharth¬†Vardharajan who’s¬†responsible for the California Superbike School in India, ex-Moto3 racer¬†Sarath Kumar,Vivek Jaisingh,¬†owner of the Performance Racing Store ¬†and our very own Shubhabrata Marmar.

See the video below to know what goes into sizing up and testing every machine that makes it to the nominees in this category.
