Rise of choppers in India – The concept

Over time, we’ve seen custom choppers based on the Royal Enfield platforms that were highly modified to house the modifications. This has now evolved into manufacturers like Avantura Choppers India, manufacturing one-off choppers specifically designed to suit their customers.
