Avantura Choppers Design
Now, let me take you to the history of the Chopper bikes. The choppers are essentially the extremely modified bikes originated in California in late 1950. Early choppers were mostly big Harley Davidsons with fat tyres, larger wheels, forward-mounted foot pegs and smaller fuel tank and headlamp. These bikes have stretched-out appearance featuring highly-modified steering angles and lengthened forks. Other key highlights of a chopper include an increased rake angle, a very thick rear tyre, a larger stock front wheel, short “drag” handlebars, hardtail frames, tall “ape hanger”.
The company has confirmed that the choppers have been designed especially for the Indian market. So, we expect them to have more flexible suspension setup and reasonably high ground clearance. The latest spy pictures revealed that the Choppers will come in two variants carrying different designs. One of them was equipped with fully chromed wheels along with unique body graphics and paint scheme. The other one was assembled with Black and chrome dual-tone alloy wheels.
