The 2018 edition of the California Superbike School in India concludes successfully, with Triumph as its partner. This is the fourth year in a row that Triumph has partnered with the premiere riding institute in India.
Founded in 1980 by Keith Code, the best on-track motorcycle coach in the world, the California Superbike School is hailed by many riders across the world to be the most advanced motorcycle riding school in the world. Functioning in over 27 countries, the CSS has trained several riders who have gone on to win championships.
Riders who have trained at the CSS have gone on to race and win in MotoGP, World Superbike (WSBK), AMA Supersport and Formula and British superbike championships. The California Superbike School first came to India in 2010, and has since then trained over 500 riders including Sarath Kumar, the first Indian to race in MotoGP.
For the 2018 edition in India, the California Superbike School had two weekends in February reserved for the training. It is a three-day program wherein the riders are taught step-by-step on how to improve their riding skills. The participants in the program are required to bring their own motorcycle and riding gear, while food and fuel is included in the program fee.
Coaches at the California Superbike School are out with the participants on the track, pin-pointing every mistake the rider makes and helping them improve it. In the Global market, instructors at the California Superbike School use the BMW S1000 RR. However, in India, Triumph Motorcycles India has been providing the instructors with bikes since 2015.
This year, the CSS instructors rode on Triumph Street Triple S and RS models. The 2018 Triumph Street Triple RS was launched in India in October last year. It is lighter, more powerful, and more dynamic. Though it is a street motorcycle, the suspension and chassis is tuned well enough for the Street Triple S and RS to be used on the track.
Vimal Sumbly, the Managing Director of Triumph Motorcycles India too attended the 2018 edition of the California Superbike School India. He was quoted as saying, "I personally feel this is a much-needed riding school where the curriculum is designed to improve your skills on a motorcycle, which in turn makes you a better rider."
Owning a superbike today is easier than ever before and it is slowly becoming a trend too. As the popularity of superbikes increases, equipping riders with the appropriate skill sets to handle the high powered machines on our roads, keeping them and their machines safe becomes necessary.
Institutions like the California Superbike School is necessary for riding enthusiasts in the country.
