Akshai Varde, the founder of Vardenchi motorcycles is a self-taught designer and entrepreneur. Akshai founded Vardenchi when he was 25 years old.
From building some of the most glamorous celebrity motorcycles like Akshay Kumar’s ride in ‘Oh my God’ to the most esteemed brand motorcycles like the replica of Walt Disneys ‘Tron Bike’, Vardenchi has made great strides in the personalized motorcycle segment.
A venture founded by pure passion and moulded by the many lessons of commercial, technical and economic structures that influence the automotive businesses in India today, Vardenchi has single handedly designed and sold the highest number of custom built motorcycles in the country.
The keen insight in global designs and a relentless obsession with quality and finish led Akshai to build a team of passionate members that delivered highly appreciated designs across the country. A reciepient of the Young Entrepreneur award from the Maxell Foundation, Akshai has given lectures and talks on motorcycle design and custom manufacturing to students at a number of renowned Institutes in the country.
Before international brands such as Harley Davidson and Triumph came to India such high priced motorcycles were unheard of. Yet Vardenchi’s sold for that high price price owing to the artistic nature and exclusivity the motorcycles offered.
As part of the latest scale up plan to reach more motorcyclists, Vardenchi is rolling out a franchise network pan India that will offer a multitude of motorcycle accessories and customization solutions for motorcycles across brands and segments. Subsequently an international roll-out is being planned.
