Special mission to the US for the SAS on Yezdis

Babbanrao dixit

From the garage to racer and vintage collector

At 76, Babanrao Dixit still has a twinkle in his eye when the conversation involves a Yezdi. He still has the enthusiasm of a teen biker on his first long ride. Only the starlight grey shock of hair is a giveaway, of the 51 years he’s spent repairing and restoring these dream machines.

Pourninma

No special treatment, just give me a clean loo on trips

Pournima runs a snack shop during weekdays, and on weekends you'll find her on the highway speeding along on her trusty motorcycle. She's a huge inspiration to many women in the Yezdi community, and is a true motorcycling legend.

From a Guru Grandfather to a Guru Grandson

This love story started with Ganpatrao Mane, the grand-daddy of Yezdi motorcycles in Pune. His son Arun Ganpat Mane and grandson Abhijeet are currently steering the fortunes of their family-owned business on a very even keel. Their garage is a bounty hunter’s paradise for Yezdi parts.
