Ashwin Ram

Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

Improved styling and suspension is the highlight.

Harley Davidson India has announced the new prices of select 2016 models and the Road King. The upgraded models feature new colours, and improved cosmetics, mechanicals and features.
