Get Ready For Goa, India Bike Week Is Back

After a year’s hiatus, India’s largest biking festival is back in December

India Bike Week Returns For 2019

While it was a no-show in 2018, India Bike Week is back for 2019. The event promises to be bigger than ever before with nearly 20,000 bikers anticipated for this event. There is a slight shift in dates from previous editions as the 2019 event will take place on 6-7 December at Vagator, Goa. Here's our experience of the 2017 edition where we rode down to Goa on a Triumph Tiger 800.

India Bike Week Returns For 2019

Apart from the usual festivities, the 2019 India Bike Week is set to host a hill climb event. The introduction of this competitive sport should help IBW attract bikers other than just the rev-happy sportbike owner. Also to draw larger crowds, the tickets are more affordable. A single-day pass costs Rs 1,200 while entry for both days costs Rs 2,200. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, 6 September, on India Bike Week’s official website.

Here’s the official press statement:




Gear up for Asia’s largest Motorbike Festival - the year’s greatest gathering of Bikes and Bikers – the 6th India Bike Week. Festival specialist, 70 EMG’s IBW on 6th and 7th December, Vagator, Goa will be the ride of a lifetime – and the biggest Biker Paradise ever seen in India.

Mumbai, 2019: For 6 years now, thousands and thousands of passionate bikers from across India and the world have ridden IBW’s The Great Migration - the iconic ride to India Bike Week in Goa to celebrate the world of biking at Asia’s biggest biker festival. The Great Migration to IBW has become an annual tradition; a rite of passage, an escape into adventure, moto-culture, riding, music, and biker brotherhood.

IBW launched in 2013 with 5,324 bikers and 2,684 bikes. By 2017, India Bike Week had grown to a staggering 15,484 bikers and 8,536 bikes. The 2019 edition on the last weekend of December will see over 20,000 bikers converging at Vagator for the gathering of a lifetime. The 6th India Bike Week 2019 promises to be the biggest yet - better, wilder, sexier.

Festival specialist, Seventy EMG has re-imagined India Bike Week in 2019 to create the ultimate celebration for ALL bikers – regardless of what’s ridden, which bike brand and machine is sworn by – IBW is the only home for all Indian Biking. The one Festival that embraces the passion, independence and adventure of all the men and women riders of India, regardless of the motorbike brand they ride !

India Bike Week 2019 will be a week that India’s bikers will remember for ever. Starting from The Great Migration rides to Goa, to the launches, music and madness of the IBW RevMoto Stage. From the iconic Howling Dog Bar and the India Stunt Championship to the IBW Bikers’ Club Village and All India Biker Build Off. From legends sharing their wildest journeys, their tales of grit, dirt and endurance with Big Trip Travel Sessions, to the much anticipated IBW Bikers’ Mart, home to India’s biggest bike expo and over 130 exhibitors. There will be racing for the first time at the Enduro Hill Climb, and Flat Track Trials Circuit. It will be a power packed weekend built for the 280 biking clubs from across India and Asia who make the ride to Goa every year to witness the best of the best in the motorcycling world.

“Biking is independence, its adventure. When you’re on your bike, you’re living life absolutely in the moment. It is one of the reasons for the stunning growth of the Indian biking community over the last 6 years.

I can’t believe that six years have passed since our first India Bike Week in 2013. As always, we’ve poured our heart and soul into making this the largest and safest celebration for the biking fraternity in every part of the country and the world. We broke a record last year as we tripled in attendance since 2013, so I’m certain that this year is going to be off the hook. I’m counting the minutes till we can swing a leg over our bikes and join the Great Migration down to Vagator for IBW 2019 !” says Martin da Costa, CEO of 70 EMG and Director of India Bike Week.

IBW 2019 is all set to host some of the most adventurous men and women bikers in the country. Tickets will be available from September 06th for Rs. 2,200 for two days and Rs.1,200 for a one day pass. #IBW2019 #IBW6 #IndiaBikeWeek
