The world is going through some dark times as COVID-19 Coronavirus poses a threat to millions of lives across the world and has forced people in their homes so as to curb its spread. The best thing to do in these times is to look out for one another, be clean and be safe. Express Drives is also working from home as a precaution and if you are too and it’s become a tad boring, we might be able to suggest some good films to binge-watch while you’re home. When we say binge-watch though, don’t forget to indulge in some sort of workout afterward.

So, we had to find motorcycle related films on Amazon Prime Video. We found Quick – a Korean film that involves big bikes, a bomb, a lot of chase scenes on those big bikes and burnouts. The perfect recipe for if you want a fun, not-so-heavy film to watch. It’s dubbed in English by Indian folks though – if that sort of thing annoys you. (Amazon Prime)
