Rides and Events
Royal Enfield Slide School
First edition of Royal Enfield Slide School was kicked off at the Big Rock Dirt Park, Bengaluru on 05th March 2020. This event provided an opportunity for novices to learn how to slide a motorcycle on a flat-track. Flat-tracking means a group of riders racing on an oval dirt track on purpose-built motorcycles to clock the shortest time while sliding around the corners and sliding is an integral part of the same. As a part of the Royal Enfield Slide School, the participants were also trained by a team of coaches headed by the famed flat track racer Johnny Lewis. More editions of Royal Enfield Slide School will be launched in more cities in the near future.
