Vagator: Yuvraj Singh is having a busy week. The cricketing all-rounder is now the costliest IPL bid with a going price of Rs 16 crore. Delhi Daredevils outbid the four team bidding frenzy. Yuvraj Singh was bought for Rs 14 crore by Royal Challengers Bangalore for the last IPL season.
Apart from his contribution to cricket, Yuvi has been keen on motorcycles (just like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has 32 motorcycles to his name). In the latest, the cricketer was in Goa to unveil a special custom bike at India Bike week 2015. Yuvraj Singh worked with Autologue, Mukul Nanda’s custom build company.
The company’s showcases at the biking festival include Youwecan KTM X12, X26 bodykits for KTM Duke, Royal Enfield cafe racer kit, and Hero Impulse Off-Road kit. Custom bikes include Reck, a customised Royal Enfield Cafe Racer. Following up a concept render of youwecan X12, Yuvraj Singh rode onto the Howling Dog Stage for the customised Autologue Design blue beauty earlier this evening.
Yuvraj’s custom KTM Duke 390 has done away with orange that’s synonymous with the brand. Looking at Yuvi’s huge fan following at the bike fest, surely Autologue’s current tuning focus would be I’m blue da ba dee da ba die.
At the press conference, Yuvraj was asked what would be his advice to young bikers in India (majority of which do not wear proper safety gear – read as helmet), he replied that riding safe, respecting rules, and your fellow citizens on road, is of utmost priority.
