Price: Rs 3,899

Motorcycle riders know how expensive good riding shoes can be. You want a pair of riding shoes to offer good protection in case of a fall (especially in the toe and ankle regions), be comfortable to wear and be stylish at the same time.

FILA has launched a range of motorsport shoes in collaboration with Rannvijay Singh (of MTV Roadies fame) that aim to give you all of these features at a good price.

To make long rides a little easier on your feet, these shoes have an insole made of FILA's COMFRTX material. A tiny patch of it is included in the box to show you what it looks like. Think of it as a layer of bubble wrap under your soles, except it is made of rubber.

The padded high-ankle section has a rubberised protector on the outside. There is a large Velcro strap to lock your foot in securely. The upper is made of PU (polyurethane), which is quite thick for added protection.

We like the thoughtful design touches. For instance, the tiny patch of rubber near the toe area to resist abrasion caused by gear levers. Worn-out toe areas on shoes is one of the ways to recognise an avid biker — not if you're wearing one of these, though. This patch is on both left and right shoes as some motorcycles have the gear lever on the right.

And, obviously, if you just like the design and don't have a motorbike, you can still use them as casual, daily wear shoes because they're not as stiff and restrictive as armoured biking shoes. You can get them in three colours and we think the price is quite amazing for what is on offer.

These custom-built Royal Enfield beauties will take your breath away!

Old School Bobber

3 Jul, 2017
Whether it’s the resounding thump of the Bullet 350 or low-slung cafe racer design of the Continental GT, Royal Enfield has forever had a cult-like following all over the world. Here we have four such custom-made motorcycles built by Bull City Customs, Inline3, TNT Motorcycles, and Bombay Customs in collaboration with Royal Enfield. In Pic: Custom Chrome 500 – Bull City Customs This 500 cc Classic Chrome, is the quintessential old-school bobber. The hard-tailed laid bare frame, ‘bobbed’ rear mudguard and spring loaded single seat hark back to the no-frills 40’s era of board track racing. The chromed-out peanut fuel tank and low slung handle bars clipped on to custom front forks make sure you’re as much at home on the roads as on the drag race track. Bull City Customs have also done away with the stock EFI (electronic-fuel-injection) in favour of the trusty old carburettor, so only you (no micro-chip tells you what to do) decide how fast that twist of the throttle takes you! The bobber also has a chain-oil tank, which protects the chain from dry spells on long rides.
