Great news for those who have that adventurous streak in them….American powersport giant Polaris has thumped it’s way to India. Along with Play in Sarjapur, and Target Games and Facilities Pvt. Ltd. in Yeshwantpur, Polaris has unveiled two off-road circuits in Bengaluru.
The Minnesota-based Polaris has a bevy of models in its lineup. They are aimed at a variety of activities, such as recreation, sports, defence, beach & forest patrolling, search & rescue patrols, agriculture etc. The engines start from a tiny 50 cc and can go upto a humongous 900 cc. Polaris has offerings in petrol, diesel as well as electric variants. Some of the popular models from the Polaris’ stable are Phoenix, Sportsman, Ranger RZR as well as the Scrambler.
In India, these models retail through AKB Motors. They have on offer the complete range of Polaris automobiles. AKB Motors is responsible for the Sales, Spare Parts, and Service needs of the South Indian customers. All the Polaris vehicles available for use at the two off-road tracks will be supplied by AKB Motors.
Mr. Pankaj Dubey, Managing Director of Polaris India Pvt. Ltd., was very optimistic of the response that these two off-road tracks will get. He opines that, Bengaluru has a very rich racing culture and thus there is huge scope for growth of off-road activities. He also felt that there is now a spurt in the interest towards adventure sports and hence Polaris finds it suitable to provide the necessary infrastructure and equipment for the adventure-lovers.
Accompanying Mr. Dubey at the occasion were Mr. Alok, owner of Target Games and Facilities Pvt. Ltd. and Mr. Sharath Reddy, owner of Play. Both gentlemen look forward to creating a space for family entertainment as well as to provide thrill to off-roading lovers.
The Sarjapur track is spread over a sprawling area of 30000 sq. feet.
