Headquartered in Bengaluru, Wicked Ride, a start-up, was founded in 2014 by three friends, Vivekananda H.R., Anil G and Varun Agni, who did not find options to rent motorcycles (especially high end luxury bikes) in Bengaluru at the time. Realizing that there is a rather new audience to cater to, they set up a company and started renting bikes starting from Royal Enfield to Harley-Davidson. They believe in making your dream come true as a biker – be it riding the premium bikes or experiencing the inexplicable joy of riding in the best biking destinations.
Wicked Ride is currently present in Bengaluru, Mysuru, Pune, Bhuj, Jaipur and Udaipur. The company would also be looking at opening its operations in 17 other destinations in India by March 2016.
