As per recent reports, Manju Warrier got a two-wheeler license last month. She obtained her two-wheeler license from Ernakulam’s Kakkanad RTO after effortlessly clearing the ‘8’ track test. The BMW R1250 GS is a powerful and heavy motorbike. However, she gave the test a Bajaj M80 geared scooter. Unlike many countries, India does not have a category for different types of motorcycles. So anyone who can pass a test on a bike/ scooter with as less as 5 Bhp power can legally ride powerful machines as well.

In many countries, two-wheelers are divided into different categories of licenses. It depends on the power and capacity of the engine. To ride a powerful bike, you need a license in that category. However, this is not the case for two-wheelers in India. There are only two categories – geared and Without gear. With the popularity of powerful sports bikes and their easy availability, there need to be appropriate categories. Currently, only four-wheelers have categories like LMV, Commercial, LCV, and heavy vehicle licenses.

Growing Bike Culture

It is to be noted that Manju Warrier has been spotted riding the BMW R1250 GS motorcycle without any issues. Apparently, she fell in love with the bike when she went out on a road trip with Tamil actor Ajith Kumar. The engine response from the adventure tourer motorcycle like BMW R1250 GS is very different from a small-capacity motorcycle. Even if you are well-accustomed to a regular 100cc bike, you might not be able to handle a 1250cc motorcycle like the BMW R1250 GS. We advise you to be careful while trying such a bike.

India has been one of the largest markets for two-wheelers in the world. However, it has just started moving beyond the budget segments. With the growing biker culture and adventure clubs, there is a huge demand for powerful sports bikes. Many international brands are now easily available in the Indian market. Unfortunately, most bike enthusiasts are not trained to ride these high-end performance bikes. It is high time the system for two-wheeler licenses is updated in India. Just to make sure that a person is capable of riding and handling the motorcycle.
