Pre-order Terms & Conditions
These Pre-Order Terms and Conditions (these “Terms”) govern the placing of a pre-order (“Pre-Order”) with Makara Cycles Private Limited (“Makara” or “we” or “us”) for a Touring bike (“Vehicle”). Please read all of these Terms carefully before submitting your Pre-Order. By submitting your Pre-Order, you agree to be legally bound by these Terms.
1. No Obligations.

These Terms do not constitute an agreement for the sale of a Vehicle and do not lock in pricing, a firm production slot, a firm delivery date, or specific Vehicle configuration. To complete the purchase or lease of a Vehicle, you will need to execute Makara’s standard Agreement to Purchase [or Lease] (“Final Sales Agreement”) which will include additional terms and conditions, including the final price sheet for the Vehicle. Additional payment for the Vehicle, including taxes and other governmental fees, will be required at that time.
We may decline Pre-Orders to avoid over-subscription or as we deem appropriate in our sole discretion. If your Pre-Order is declined, you will be notified and your Pre-Order payment will be refunded.
