Harley Rock Riders Season 3, Bangalore ● Photo Showcase

Harley Rock Riders Season III turned out to be a godfather of all events with an assemblage of thousands of music and motorbike aficionados in Bangalore at the Clarks Exotica bringing the best of both worlds - Harley-Davidson’s classic bikes and rock music. The event marked the unveiling of Harley Davidson’s newest progeny FAT BOB. Priced at Rs 12.8 lac, Fat Bob is a wide, blacked-out Dyna with Twin Cam 96 engine, 'Tommy Gun' 2-1-2 exhaust and helical-cut fifth gear.

The historic association of Harley-Davidson with rock music and its legends gave birth to the annual music property - Harley Rock Riders in India in 2012. The focus of this initiative is to revolutionize the rock music culture in India by encouraging promising indigenous rock bands and providing them a unique platform to showcase their talent.

This mega carnival in association with Rolling Stone, offered a myriad of national and international rocks bands to mark with ‘Budweiser Band Hunt’ winners kicking off a prelude to an evening of roar of V- engines and overdriven guitars. The Indian repertoire of powerhouse performances included Albatros, Light Years, Solder, The News, Frank Got The Funk, Galeej Gurus , Boomerang,, Kryptos, and Soulmate. The finale had the folks of Bengaluru head banging to the Swedish metal band ‘Wolf’. Harley Davidson India managing director Anoop Prakash was also seen giving away one of the models for free!
