Rahul Gandhi on Bharat Jodo Yatra
As you can see in the above YouTube video, Rahul Gandhi is successfully conducting his Bharat Jodo Yatra. He was joined by a Mashable India presenter for a short interview. During this conversation, Mr. Rahul Gandhi discussed old-school two-wheelers (scooters and motorcycles). He seems to be a fan of the old-school Lambretta scooter. Alongside the nostalgic value of his childhood days, he missed the easy rideability and retro styling of a Lambretta scooter.
Mr. Gandhi goes on to mention that he prefers two-stroke bikes over modern four-stroke ones. During his college days, Rahul Gandhi used to ride an Aprilia RS250 two-stroke motorcycle and was in love with the raw power delivery. The two-stroke engine of the bike offered 70 bhp of power and the crank. It offers 53 bhp of power at the rear wheel. Rahul Gandhi studied for one year at Harvard University, UK. However, he moved to the USA due to security reasons.

Loves Cycling More Than Riding
Additionally, Rahul Gandhi also admitted that he would prefer to own an old-school two-stroke Yamaha RD350 over a Royal Enfield. Rahul Gandhi does not seem to be a fan of Royal Enfield bikes. Instead, he seems very impressed with the addictive quality of the Yamaha RD350. However, Mr. Gandhi also mentioned that the progressive power delivery of the popular Yamaha bike can also be dangerous at times. Nowadays, he loves cycling more than riding motorcycles.
Despite being such a popular figure in India, Rahul Gandhi claims that he does not own a car. So far, he has only used government vehicles for his daily commute. Despite his love for driving, Mr. Gandhi is usually chauffeured. He does not drive or ride himself due to the chaotic traffic of New Delhi. However, he admitted that he used to drive a Honda CR-V that was owned by his mother, Sonia Gandhi. Mr. Gandhi finds it difficult to pursue his passion for cycling due to the tight security levels around him every time he heads out.
