The Delhi edition, held at the Pragati Maidan, saw Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar and Tapsee Pannu at the event.

The event extended the international association between GAS and Honda which dates back to more than 15 years. Top riders such as Mick Doohan, Nicky Hayden, Casey Stoner and Marc Marquez have created MotoGP history on Honda motorcycles with GAS on their sleeves.

GAS is premium aspirational denim lifestyle brand for both men and women. The element around which quality products revolve, products that meet the needs of the intelligent, aware, international, cosmopolitan consumer. Contemporary clothing that goes beyond the fashions of the moment to express the wearer’s individuality on all occasions.

“I am excited about this opportunity, which combines several elements that are particularly close to my heart. It is truly thrilling to showcase our collection in a prestigious context in a country that is fascinating, full of history and has a bright future, and in collaboration with a global giant with whom we share a long history of success,” said Claudio Grotto, Founder and President, Grotto S.p.a., GAS’ parent company.

Commenting on the launch, Keita Muramatsu, president and CEO of HMSI said, “Honda’s association with GAS goes back a long way and across several geographies. There is an emotional relationship between a rider and his bike. So also with his clothing gear. We are delighted to bring this magic to India.” (SH)
