Raksha Bandhan is here and siblings finally have the special moment that celebrates love. It is a festival of love, of friendship, care. But the Rakhi, the sweets, cracking of annoying 'my sister is fat' or 'my brother is dumb' jokes are alright, but we all know what is the most exciting part of the day - opening presents. If your brother or sister happens to be a keen motorcyclist, it will be a lot easier to pick a present for them. You may think they are difficult to please, but trust us, bring them anything related to motorcycles and they'll be happy.

Track day

If they own a sports motorcycles, you could buy them a day out on the track, so they can go leaning and speeding as much as they want in a safe and controlled environment. A day on the Buddh International Circuit (Greater Noida, UP) would leave him/her with fantastic memories to hold on to. Various packages are sold presently, which can be viewed and bought on the circuit's official website.

Motorcycle gear

If your brother or sister is a motorcycle enthusiast, chances are that they spend a considerable amount of money on gear. A helmet or gloves or a jacket or shoes. Good helmets come with a starting price tag of Rs 3800 and extend to qualities that are priced at Rs 1 lakh and beyond. Gloves too, an essential part of the gear, make a brilliant gift option. Prices start from as low as Rs 500. A decent motorcycle jacket with basic protection would cost about Rs 4000 and onwards. Online websites are the best place to buy such gear and at times close out deals can land you some great discounts too. (Product images courtesy: Revzilla)

Gaming console

A Play Station will leave your sibling sobbing in tears of joy. MotoGP or dirt biking games are incredibly fun and food for their competitive appetite. Add in some additional accessories such as a steering wheel and the experience becomes even more enjoyable. This gift though won't come in cheap as a 1TB PS4 console can set you back by about Rs 30,000 and each game could cost anywhere between Rs 1,500 to Rs 5,000. Consoles and games can be bought from online stores or Sony stores.

Scale model

Every biking enthusiast has a dream machine that they one day want to ride or purchase. It could be a Suzuki Hayabusa or a BMW S1000RR HP4 or a Kawasaki H2R. Scale models are easily available at toy shops or dedicated model shops. While the cheaper ones can be bought for as less as Rs 200, the more authentic ones could cost upwards of Rs 2,500.

Clothes and accessories from motorcycle brands

Clothes and accessories are often an extension of a person's personality and what better way of pleasing a biker with something that tells the world about her/ his love for two wheels.

A Ducati phone cover or a Ferrari watch or a Ferrari Scuderia bag or Mercedes-AMG espresso cups. Bellissimo! If your bro or sis is a MotoGP fan, team or a rider branded merchandise too can be a great hit! Online stores are the best place to buy such stuff at affordable prices if authenticity isn't too important.
