India’s first motorcycle training academy is here – India Motorcycling Academy (IMA)

India Motorcycling Academy or IMA is India’s first motorcycle training academy which focuses on developing road riding skills and motorcycle safety.

The core focus of IMA is to teach motorcyclists the subconscious elements of riding and make them more conscious of what actually goes into the processes of riding a bike. It could be something as simple as using the front brake to its fullest efficiency to riding the ghat roads of India. The training modules and workshops are tailored to meet the needs of a wide range of motorcyclists from your day to day commuters to full blown adventure touring enthusiasts.

Motorcycling is not just for men but wholeheartedly embraces women riders as well. With exclusive workshops for female motorcycle enthusiasts, IMA lays equal weight on improving skill sets of lady riders. May it be your everyday scooter riding moms who’d like to take their kids to school to those who would like to scale the mighty Himalayas on their bikes. There are workshops and modules ranging from basic to advance skill levels of riding.

With over 10 years of touring experience and rallying expertise, Shrijit and Vishakh believe that together, the knowledge and skills that they have built over the years could improve the overall motorcycling scene in India when coupled with the right training and practice.
