Special Interest Publications

ngpllogo1Next Gen’s remarkable growth since its inception in 2005 in the fiercely competitive special interest publishing space is largely about self belief. A group of 6 individuals armed with a capital of a few lakhs, believed they could build a publishing house to feed the hunger for specialized content in a country that continues to grow at a torrid pace. With nine dominant magazine brands and successful forays into six business channels in related areas, that belief stands largely vindicated.

From six people the company has grown into a 150 people strong publishing major with national presence. The company now has five consumer titles, Car India, Bike India, Mother and Baby, The Ideal Home and Garden, Smart Photography and it has three business/trade magazine titles Commercial Vehicle, Power Watch India and Auto Components India. Among these titles Car India, Mother and Baby are licensed titles and the balance are indigenous titles.

Bike IndiaFor long, India, the world’s second largest two-wheeler market has been deprived of a dedicated two-wheeler magazine. The first of its kind, BIKE India has fixed that urge with a truly adrenaline-pumping passion magazine that caters as much to the super-bike fanatic as to man-on-the-road commuter. Dedicated in its entirety to the country’s burgeoning biker community, the magazine is emerging as a biker’s bible, not just in India, but across Asia.

Fuelling the passion that pervades the biking scene in the country, BIKE India is produced by hardcore motorcycle enthusiasts with more than 25 years of hands-on experience in motorcycling and its associated culture.

Our experienced team will impart knowledge and information to readers to make motorcycling an even more enjoyable form of personal transport than it already is.

Our Mission

BIKE India will deliver the most definitive verdict on machinery and performance by explaining the hows, whys, and whats on every new bike in a lucid and user-friendly manner.
