The objective was to take biking to its long deserved space and stature in the country, fuel the growing passion for motorcycling across India by building an exclusive social hub on mobile and web platforms for the bikers, by the bikers to whom travel and journeys have always been more important than destinations alone.
We strategized to converge all the information young urban riders, motorsport enthusiasts, dynamism seekers who own small to medium cc bikes (mostly 100-500cc plus others) seek on a singular platform, functionally packaged, to appeal to bikers’ sensibilities and help them pursue their passion more seriously.
The creative concept led to blending technology with reality in the right proportions to create a singular and personal digitally powered social hub for avid motorcyclists, differentiated from the current generic personal and social networking portals, and paired with a lightweight mobile app which proved to be the perfect 24X7 riding companion for a two-wheeler enthusiast.
Trails Of India was launched forth with integrated marketing. Social media expertise combined with on-ground activations proved to be the perfect launchpad for the campaign.
Reaching out to a target audience of passionate motorcyclists, across lifestyle segments was imperative to promote riding as more than just a utilitarian pursuit, but affluent riders within the age group of 18 and 30 years became our primary focus for being the ones who inspire, influence and set trends. They included different genres of riders which included Young Urban Riders | Dynamism Seekers | Motorsports Enthusiasts | Bikers who prefer to make a style statement.
Details that a behavioral research analyses of two-wheeler riders established:
Motorbiking is becoming increasingly popular. It is a passion of a segment of people who know and understand the technology of the machine they own or aspire to own. This digitally savvy, niche segment is spread across the country and is on a constant lookout for like-minded people to share their interest and passion with. But with various barriers in communication like age, geographical, linguistic differences, there is no homogeneity.
The Gap: A single platform which brings everything motorbiking to a common place; allowing riders to live, share, connect with their passion every single moment.
Fill the gap by creating the largest peer-to-peer information exchange lifestyle platform for passionate bikers, keeping human, real and unique experiences as the focal point.
Bring motorcycling journeys and related bike lifestyle details to surface to eventually allow bikers to celebrate their passion, together.
