Riding superbikes comes naturally to him as walking on road.  Meet - Mr Kapil Sangal, CEO of Throttle Auto Solutions Pvt Ltd. and a passionate rider and racer himself who aims to take bike riding to greater levels of recognition.


He is a rider with experience in tarmac track racing, dirt tracks and leisure riding.  Owning and riding superbikes has been his favourite hobby for many years. He has owned various superbikes and some of them have distinct names.  He has had various bikes, and even four superbikes at a time, including Honda CBR1000RR (#KapsiBlade), Triumph Daytona 675R Matt Black (#Turukmakto), Triumph Street Triple (#WhiteKnight), Harley Davidson Super Glide Custom (#Wolverine), Suzuki GSxR1000, Kawasaki Ninja 650 (#Hulk),  Honda CBR250R (#Mini-Blade), Hero Impulse (#Dirtie), Bajaj Avenger 220, Hero Honda CBZ Exterme and Hero Honda CD Dawn.  He now owns the Triumph Daytona 675R White (fondly called as #Turukmakto). 


He started riding at a very young age on Bajaj Sunny Zip and has not looked back since.  He has enjoyed a lot of trips, the most recent being Trip to Hyderabad, Ooty, Goa, solo ride from Delhi to Bangalore on Honda CBR1000RR (he named this ride as 'Lone Wolf Ride’) and regular trips around Bangalore with his riding clubs BEST Bangalore Exotic Superbikes Team, BRATs (Bangalore Riders Association of Triumph) and Free Riders Network (‘FRN’).  He has been a mentor to many bikers who have started their career in track racing.  He has also helped a lot of aspiring bikers to understand the importance of safe riding and inspired them to ride responsibly.


He is also the admin of ABC (Association of Bikers Community) where admins of various riding clubs of Bangalore have come together to make motorcycling better and safer for everyone.


His most ecstatic moment was when he got a call for BMW Motorrad Riding Experience Event at Buddh International Circuit in Delhi in February 2016 to ride on his dream bike.  He got to ride the BMW S1000RR and S1000XR which was an awesome experience that he still cherishes.  An extremely humble and fun loving person, Throttle salutes his passion for riding!


His message to fellow bikers is "One can't understand the bikes until the Revz of the bikes are synced with their own heart beats.  So build a connection with your bike, ride hard and ride safe.  Keep Throttling!!!"
