ABOUT DATE A BIKE

Date a Bike or DAB in short, commenced on the 14th of February 2015 with the sole objective of providing world class high end premium motorcycles to customers. The concept is "Why buy it when you can rent it"!!. The tagline "Indulge in your dreams" captures the vision of the organization in a nutshell.
The different verticals we deal with are motorcycle rentals, motorcycle tours both guided and custom made, range of motorcycle accessories and a service centre for premium bikes. DAB has a curated, handpicked selection of riding gear and other merchandise – including the latest in jackets, riding pants, helmets, and luggage systems. The team also specializes in designing, planning and executing organized motorcycle tours across the country. We all crave for what we couldn't experience in our earlier years, when resources were limited. Come and let’s indulge this craving, in a responsible way!!

Tours

A journey of a thousand dreams awaits your kickstart

Over the horizon and yonder of your window the wilderness beckons. How much have you gazed at it and wished you took the call to reach out there and returned only to tell the tales of the wildness in you. The wild ones, the adventurous, the last of the breed are out there. They with their tubthumping Enfields, ride together all over the wild, with wind gushing over their faces, saddled neatly over the beastly machines. We waited like you for our call. When we reached out, we didn’t tame the wild. We dived in and out of unchartered paths and found many a treasure to last a lifetime. These treasures were not only at the destinations, but increased exponentially over every journey we undertook. We whistle out to you the same wild tunes that enthralled us. They are not easy paths to embark upon. But rather with greasy hands we picked out selective trails that would lead out to unexploited wonders, the memories of which will linger to write your own folklore. Man or Woman, your adventurous side will be tickled to the bone. The winds to caress your faces far and long, your heart beating in rhythm with the engine, the destinations wouldn’t matter anymore for the journeys to be tackled still remain. Your packages won’t end with one, we promise. You shall leave booking the next tour available on your busy schedule. The helping hands, the aromatic local food, the “handlebar” picked destinations, the laughter that drowned the strains shall be etched forever on the walls of your memory bank. Your “bullet” is beckoning you for a ride. You just have to kick start your wild side now.
