The Makara Name

Makara’s are mythical hybrid-creatures that date back to thousands of years. The hybrid features and the ability to adapt, made it a symbol of strength, making them supreme guardians and choice of the legends.

 

The idea behind the name Makara came from the desire to create a unique riding experience that fulfils the travel needs of every man. To create bikes that can tackle terrain the world can throw at them. Essentially becoming an extension of the riders personality.
