“Since our entry in Australia and New Zealand, we have received great feedback and love from motorcycle enthusiasts. We are the guardians of what’s authentic and real for people who are trying to explore and discover themselves and the world around them. We have a strong customer base of over 8000 riders and achieving this feat is a clear testament of our growth as well as commitment to this market.
