Growing Popularity of off road vehicles in India

Nov 16th 2015 at 8:58 PM

An off road vehicle is any such mode of transport, or any such vehicle, that is capable of functioning well off  the road. And recent trends show that the popularity of such vehicles is increasing, especially in India.

Off road vehicles in India usually involves vehicles such as, dirt bikes, Quad Bikes, etc. However, while these are considered more traditional vehicles that can function on toughest off roads, there are some unconventional ones as well. 

The popularity of such modes of transport seems to be increasing in India. And this is true especially when it comes to the younger generation of today. Owning flashier cars and bikes was always the order of the day when it came to being impressive and popular. But the stakes seem to have risen. Off road modes of transport are the new “in” thing.

Popularity in Cities

This rise of popularity is mostly seen in metropolis cities, such as Mumbai or Bangalore. The genre of extreme adventure sports seems to have caught up in a big way with people in such areas. This has consequently had them clamouring for off road vehicles which make such sporting possible.

Off road vehicles in India have two basic types – adventure and Utility based.There are even different types of such vehicles, to complement the different age groups.

When it comes to terrain specific off road vehicles in India there are many variants and sub-types in these. From Snow mobiles to Sand Rails, these vehicles are made specifically for almost any type of terrain.

All of these have very specific purposes, and some are not made open to the public, because the government has greater personal use for them.

The ones that are more popular among the masses include:

Dirt bikes
4-wheel drive trucks
Quad bikes
Off-highway all-terrain vehicles
Sports utility vehicles

The sensational favourite, among the public, happens to be the dirt bike. People can now get their hands on best off road bikes in India. There are many dealerships today that sell dirt bikes in India to feed the growing want of the masses.

Utility Aspect:

But off road transport is not only for sporting. They can also be used by the layman for other utility purposes. Since these vehicles have a greater ground clearance than other modes of transport that are only meant for off roads, they can be put to use to cover obstacles such as rocks and plants and general debris. The soft suspensions in addition to the wide tires on these vehicles, makes them perfect in achieving small ground pressure. This ensures that they do not sink in soft surfaces such as mud or sand.

The low gearing systems in such vehicles also ensure that they make adequate and optimum use of the power. They can run on slippery surfaces and are perfect to traverse surfaces where our normal cars cannot take us.

Off road vehicles in India are not only fun but highly useful too especially on some of the rough terrains Indian roads have to offer. Thus, they’ve found high utility among the Indian markets, and are becoming widely popular.
